A comic artist’s must-haves

Note­book As a comic artist I nd in­spi­ra­tion from what I or other peo­ple nor­mally en­counter ev­ery day. Be­cause ideas can come at any time, it’s good to al­ways have a note­book ready with me.That way, any time a new idea comes to my head, I’ll quickly write it down. Pen­cil case With all its con­tents, my pen­cil case is just as im­por­tant as my note­book! If I ever hap­pen to for­get my note­book, which I rarely do, I can use a pen­cil to jot down my ideas on a nap­kin or any other pa­per avail­able. Head­set I love mu­sic and I lis­ten to all mu­si­cal gen­res, es­pe­cially metal. Be­cause of that, I’m in­sep­a­ra­ble from my SONY head­phones. Mo­bile phone I make it a point to keep some of my draw­ing port­fo­lio on my smart­phone. Say if I hap­pen to meet peo­ple who want to take a look at my work, it’s eas­i­est to just take out my phone and show them what I’ve got there. I can also do work on my phone, us­ing a dig­i­tal sketch­book app called Sam­sung Sketch. Lip­sticks Back in 2014 I was named the am­bas­sador for Pop­con Asia, an in­ter­na­tional pop cul­ture con­ven­tion, for which I had to dress up and main­tain a fresh look dur­ing pub­lic ap­pear­ances. It was then that I be­gan car­ry­ing lip­sticks with me (all four!), all in nude and peach shades. My per­sonal fa­vorite is the MAT7 Nude Matte by Maybelline. Hair­brush and hair clip They’re a life­saver! My hair can get pretty crazy, so it’s ab­so­lutely nec­es­sary for me to keep both items in my bag. Wal­let This purse is ac­tu­ally a handme-down from my mom. I’m a sucker for any­thing Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret, so that’s what mat­ters most, not the pat­tern or style. It’s where I keep my KTP (iden­tity card), stu­dent ID and cash. I like to splurge on books.
