Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.

If he can do it…

This is my friend Max.

My friend, Max

He’s an artist. He’s also a lab rat, just like me. He does science things at work. In his free time he draws. He’s an amazing artist, in my opinion.


The Road Not Taken

The printed work

Max wasn’t always an artist. There was a point in time where he had to choose between art and science, and that’s where the idea for The Road Not Taken came about. It tells the story of his journey and how he came to where he is right now.

If he can do it, so can I. So can everyone!

Max drew The Road Not Taken as part of the Singapore chapter of 24Hr Comics Day. Reading his story and seeing him at work showed me that there’s another way to tell a story. That there are more things out there to do other than science. Max inspires me.

The National Library is having an exhibition, showcasing the finished works from the 2012 24Hr Comics Day. One of the works showcased is Max’s. The exhibition will be held at three different libraries: Jurong Regional Library – Skybridge, Level 3 (18 March to 2 May), Sengkang Public Library (3 May to 18 June), and Serangoon Public Library (19 June to 31 July). Do go and take a look and see the wonderful works done by our local artists.

More of Max’s art can be found here.

You can read more about the exhibition here and here.
