Signal-to-Noise. (at Telaga Tujuh)
Just a small taste of the Nine Inch Nails: Tension 2013 tour production I’ve been heavily involved with for the past few months. Creative credit for this production is shared with Trent Reznor, Roy Bennett, Paul Guthrie, Moment Factory, Brian Jenkins, Jason Baeri, Andrew Jerez, Loren Barton, and Morgan Brown, among others - and of course the massive and amazing crew that makes it actually happen every night.
I took the day off to draw a comic about something that I’ve never really discussed with anyone before - at least not all of it. I don’t know why I felt the need to do this NOW - this was about three years ago, my sophomore year of college. And I use the term “comic” loosely because it’s really just a series of scribbled pictures - I may try to clean it up at some point. And it’s pretty long so it’s under a cut.
If you remember my Holy Ghost comic, it took place at about the same time as this.
I should say there are probably some trigger warnings for self-harm, suicide, and (maybe) eating disorders under there - it’s not as bad as it sounds I promise, but be warned.
Malaysian Desserts at it’s best.
“This project Kueh (a bite-sized snack or dessert foods) by Lee Xin Li first started as a proposal for a Peranakan restaurant. In the process of drawing these sweet delicacies, he was fascinated by the plethora of kueh from the various cuisines around the region. Each piece led to the discovery of kueh he never knew.

“Air and light and time and space have nothing to do with it and don’t create anything except maybe a longer life to find new excuses for.”
