About

I write a bit, I draw a bit, I let my freak flag fly, and sometimes I say things that are weirdly profound.

I'm a self-taught artist who's been slowly transitioning to a career in cartoons since 2010. Before this I was an advertising copywriter, and a lot of my ideas and opinions about work and life come from this background. I'd describe myself as a strange mix of terribly cynical and naively optimistic, and for better or for worse, this definitely comes out in my work!

My current major projects are a comic strip called Welcome to Agency X (WAX) and a gag cartoon called Questionable Quotebook. WAX was published in Malaysian national daily newspaper The Star six days a week for a year from 2015-2016. These comics were recently compiled into a book published by Keropok Comics and available exclusively in Popular Bookstore outlets across Malaysia. This is a very exciting thing for me and I'm looking forward to promoting the book during an upcoming book tour!

Questionable Quotebook is a web-syndicated cartoon that is published three times a week on GoComics.com. I first received the offer from them in February 2016 and feel very lucky to be connected to one of the biggest comics syndicates out there.

I've been creating and selling merchandise based on my comics since August 2016. Before setting up this Etsy shop, I sold my work via Instagram and later a standalone website. I often post photos on my Instagram from happy buyers, some of whom even bring their SAMSMINIMART sweaters and accessories on holiday and send me the most amazing snaps!
