hash stash

T'was the kino card's 5th year anniversary and we've more than enough chances to get 20% discount on books, yehey. Got this last weekend, I've seen this book at kino for ages and always avoided it for some reason. Then recently spotted the parka blog review for this here. I told myself, hey, that's pretty good stuff. The art is in similar vein to Koji Morimoto's and Terada's works. I like!
Also managed to borrow the new Miyazaki book Starting Point. Just started reading it but then decided to get myself a copy, but it's sold out at kino.

A quick post before the weekend rolls away uncontrollably into next week. I've managed to paint and age our plastic sauce container to look like a rusty old bucket, yeeeaaauuuch. Why would someone keep and use a disgusting old thing like that? I might have gotten a bit carried away. Check out the before painting image here. Wanted to take more pics but my cam ran out of battery.

Stashed Away

Recent events have led to an exhausting but otherwise much needed re-organization of my stash. Stuff was cleaned, cleared, categorized and stored. As you can see from the above photo of my model stash, I won't be running out of projects for the blog. All this accumulated despite a conscious but obviously wavering decision to stop buying model kits.
Located nearby is an even more extensive selection of books, magazines and references. It's hard when one finds interest in so many genres. One day I dream of a library...and a toy store?

Fanboy at STGCC 2009

Well, it's the Singapore Toy Games and Comic Convention this weekend and I had a chance to check out some of the artists. The thing I liked about this year's Con is that there seems to be more things to see in the artist's alley. Where I met and got a signed The Secret Robot Spy Factory book from Sonny Liew.And a couple of comics and a book from Camilla d'Errico
