DAY 6: JUN 25
Finally it’s event day! I was pretty much as nervous as I can get, but luckily I didn’t sweat nonstop like the previous event in Malaysia last Dec. Thank you so much for everyone that dropped by to the event! As an artist, the HJ-Story events feels very different compare to similar event I’ve done in the past. I first got started in the comic industry, where I did work for Marvel, DC, Capcom, etc. I’ve attended many signing events to promote the comics and artwork, however for those event, I feel most people usually come in support of the artwork or their favorite comic character(s). Where as for HJ-Story, I feel that there’s a much deeper connection on the personal and emotional level. I can literally feel the love in the air from all the couples around me, they’re not necessarily comic lover, or art lover, but just regular everyday couples that share the same vision of love.
HJ-Story started of as a series where I can share my love to the world, but over the years, having the chance to meet so many wonderful people around the world, it has transformed into magical journey, taking me on a journey of discovering and learning about love. THANK YOU!
For the 2 event, it was for the promotion event with Gong Cha SG celebrating “Best Friend Day” and also the launching of Vol.2 in Malaysia and Singapore, which you can find the books in all major bookstores. The Gong Cha merchandises turned out really nice and I’ll share photos with everyone in the next post!
Overall everything went quite smoothly, each event started off with a short intro where I shared some behind the scene stories, followed by Q&A and giveaway, and wrapping it up with the signing session! After the 2 event, I went out for a nice dinner and casual drink with my friends but I was so tired that I even forgot to take photos of the yummy food….
It was such a heart-warming experience to finally have the chance to meet all the supporters, and I can’t stress enough how thankful I am for such warm welcome to Singapore! I hope that I’ll get the chance to visit other countries to meet everyone in the near future too :)
