Another Amulet 2 post!


So Amulet 2 reaches bookstores and comic retailers in two days!
I was very fortunate to be on the crew for this book!
Since I was in grade 10, I was a huge fan of Kazu Kibuishi (creator of the amulet series).
I've always looked to him for inspiration and would have never thought to be working under him! I've learnt a lot from helping out on this production and had a good time working with all the talented crew - Amy Kim Kibuishi, Anthony Go Wu, Jason Caffoe, Kean Soo, Stuart Livingston, Ryan Hoffman, Michael Regina, Tim During, Catherine Yoo, Alan Beadle, Patrick Race, Cayleigh Allen, and Felix Lim (You guys are all awesome!)

Make sure to pick up your copy this Tuesday at any local bookstore or comic book retailer!

Amulet 2!

Sorry about the lack of updates. Life has been pretty busy and I know things won't be slowing down for atleast another month. Tons of projects have been completed since I've blogged and I will update on those asap. But for now... Amulet 2!

Amulet 2 will reach bookstores and comic retailers next month! Both books read like a film. I found that I could not put it down till the very end - it would be like pausing a movie and coming back to it the next day... that just doesn't work. The first book was great and the second is even better! I highly recommend this series!

It's creator, Kazu Kibuishi, is one of my great inspirations along side with the Miyazaki! Kazu's works always seem to inspire me and I find myself filled with great motivation when working on a project.
Another one of my inspirations is the Flight series. This graphic novel is an anthology by many talented artists! It's essentially a base where artists allow their imaginations to thrive and spark.

If you have not read either Amulet or Flight, I recommend you pick those up! Get inspired and create!
