Evacomics opens online shop with Society6

Ends 2 Dec (Cyber Monday)!!!

 What is Society6?

Society6 is a fulfilment service company that helps artists to setup their online shop and take care of everything from collection of payment, production of goods, all the way to shipping of a product. Items are only produced after an order is made so the shipping time is a bit longer. All items are shipped from US and listed in USD. The only thing artists need to take care of is to create and upload the designs. I had chosen Society6 because of its easy to use interface and recommendation by a few fellow artist friends. Unfortunately, there is no such service in Asia yet.

  What happens after I purchase from Society6?

Items are only produced after you place an order. If you live in US, items will typically arrive around a week or so. Overseas customers would have to wait 2-3 weeks (or more, depending on customs). And of course, I get a design commission (around 10% of sales) for every item sold with my design on it :)

  I like your design!

If you are from a company looking for such artwork to sparkle your products or marketing material, please do not hesitate to contact me. More information about my services and rates can be found here:

And yes, I also do caricatures and illustrations for individuals ;)

Chinese food and Japanese food

It's very difficult to tell what meat you're eating when you eat Japanese food~

Sushi and beyond at Tsukiji Fish market

Tsukiji Fish market tokyo tuna cutting
I went to Tsukiji several times with friends (both Japanese and foreigners) so I brought my family down for some fresh sushi on their first day in Tokyo. However this post will be a compilation of ALL my trips down to Tsukiji so you can have a better idea of what to expect.

Manner in drinking sake rice wine in Japan

I tried to pour sake (rice wine) for myself but was often stopped by my Japanese friend because it is a custom for others to pour for you. Oops!

You are never alone in Japan :P
*PS. Monkeys don't drink and you can only find them at Nagano's onsen (hot spring).

CoFesta Day 3: Difference between a 20,000yen sushi meal and a 2000yen sushi meal

Ginza Sushikoh
I am finally getting into the finale of our whole trip: a grand treat at Ginza Sushikoh, located above Tokyo station on the 35th floor, worth 20,000+++yen! (SGD250/ USD200) My Japanese friend told me that it is a very famous sushi restaurant and is difficult to get a reservation there.

While fruits in Tokyo are ridiculously expensive, fruits in Singapore are usually squeezed by many people…even though it's obvious that the fruit isn't ripe yet...

CoFesta Day 2: TIMM Tokyo International Music Market Showcase Live 2013

TIMM Tokyo International Music Market Showcase Live 2013
We attended TIMM Showcase Live event (23 Oct) from 4.30pm till 9+pm, a solid 5 hours of live Japanese music!!! This concert was organised for international buyers so the artistes were chosen by their record labels to promote to overseas market. Each artiste/group were allowed to invite a limited number of their own fans to the event. We were invited to sit at the second floor so we won't tweet about how tired our legs were from standing :P
