Creators of Sarah’s Scribbles, My Giant Nerd Boyfriend headed to SGCC
The Singapore Comic Convention is coming with some webcomic goodness this year in the form of guests Sarah Anderson – of Sarah’s Scribbles fame – and Fishball, creator of Giant Nerd Boyfriend.
Sarah Andersen is a 27-year-old cartoonist and illustrator. She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2014 and currently lives in Montreal. Her comics are semi- autobiographical and follow the adventures of herself, her friends, and her beloved pets.
Sarah’s “Sarah’s Scribbles” are all kinds of relatable – and I’m sure you’ve seen them around the Internet, even if it’s not on Sarah’s own sites.
“Sarah’s Scribbles” might seem deceptively simple, but Sarah is really good artist. You can check out her illustrations here.
Tay Yen Ee (better known as Fishball) is a Malaysian freelance artist that is best known for her Webtoon “My Giant Nerd Boyfriend” which has recently be turned into an animated series on YouTube.
Yen Ee’s My Giant Nerd Boyfriend is based on her life with her, well, huge geeky boyfriend. It’s a great joy to read – this writer must admit many parts of it are easily identifiable. Tay also likes her banana leaf rice drowned in a pool of dahl.
And yes, he’s really tall in real life.
Sarah Andersen and Fishball join a list of other guests set to hit the Singapore Comic Con, which is in its first year after being renamed from the Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention. There’s an interesting mix of guests this year so far – the team in charge this year from organisers ReedPop look like they’re planning something different. Let’s see what happens!
The Singapore Coming Convention happens December 7 to 8 at Marina Bay Sands Expo Halls A, B and C. Tickets are now on sale at the Singapore Comic Con website.
