Name: Leon Ang
Began the GN drawing journey since my secondary school days. Trimmed plain or colored paper and stapled them into booklets. A page for each frame – traditional format for Chinese comics (GN) that were in black and white, and string bound.
However my GN had no plot and text, merely actions, sword-fighting and explosions (007 style). They were circulated among friends and classmates.
That’s half a century back then. Nowadays, I learn writing and drawing skills from books. Yet to pick up technological skills to speed up production time. Somehow, I appreciate traditionally handcrafted works. Perhaps the ‘imperfections’ could reflect the experience of the artists. Sure, hi-tech can keep cost viable for production.
Look forward to a generation of works that will represent a unique SG style.
