Hello everyone,

Thanks so much for sharing pictures of The Carpet Mechant Volume 2! It's so wonderful to see the book on your shelves, especially paired with its red older sibling. :D

If you enjoy TCM and are interested in reading more of my work, I have a couple of graphic novels coming up.

Wednesday, 1 June 2022

Hi everyone!

It's been awhile since I last talked to you. There haven't been any cool updates to share since TCM was doing its rather mundane thing of sitting at the printers, getting shipped out, sorted at the warehouse, etc amidst the long delays caused by the pandemic supply chain issues...


The BOOK is REAL!!

I just received my author copies and everything…

Hello everyone,

I've just submitted the final files for the graphic novel, which means we've made it to the PRODUCTION stage of Volume II! During this stage, the design and editorial team will be converting these files into information for the printer, choosing the paper stock, copyediting, requesting colour samples, and all the fine details that turn these digital pieces into a physical book.

Hello everyone!

I hope you had a lovely April. Some updates from my end, especially regarding the merch:

Enamel pins: both the bird and bat pins are in production at the factory. Heads up that I've edited the bird pin slightly from the Volume One 2019 run (nothing drastic, just the sharpness of the black and a few barely noticeable design tweaks). When the pins arrive at my doorstep I will show…

Update | 93% | The Final Stretch!!

Saturday, 6 March 2021

Hello everyone,

What a year it was last year! First off, I must apologise for the lack of updates and the slowness of the crowdfunding. Due to the pandemic and the economic difficulty it entailed to so many people, I personally felt uncomfortable constantly marketing this campaign, and then, of course I got swamped by other professional obligations. (Not an excuse but an explanation) That is…

Hello everyone,


I wanted to say THANK YOU!! for the trust, patience and support you have given to this campaign, especially during these strange times. I apologise if progress has been slow (I've reduced promotion since March both in consideration of financial difficulties for potential backers, and my own mental health), but it's truly awesome to see that we're moving closer towards raising…
