If you have been on Twitter the past week, you would know that Singapore’s creative scene received an exciting piece of news. In short…
DREWSCAPE RECEIVED AN EISNER NOMINATION!!!
For those not in the know, the Eisner is short for the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, sort of like THE AWARD to get in the comic industry. This award is given annually at the San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC) and OMGOSH THIS IS EXCITING.
Drewscape’s story, “Moving Forward” was nominated for the Eisner Award for Best Short Story. This story was featured in his latest collection of comics, “Monsters, Miracles and Mayonnaise“, published by Epigram, and can be downloaded on the Singapore Memory Project. It’s definitely worth a read, using a seemingly mundane goal (getting a driver’s license) to ponder about life’s pressing questions (how are we really getting on with life? are we moving forward?).
P/S – Okay, I’m just placing this note to go… YAY SINGAPORE COMICS!!!
