Petak Sembilan comic sketch of yours truly…
So last week I was in Petak Sembilan in Glodok, one of the oldest parts of Jakarta and the location of the Chinatown of old Batavia–and one of my favorite places in Southeast Asia!
With me was Sheila, a very talented Indonesian comic book artist and part of the team that is working on a comic book adaptation of my novel Singapore Black, part of my hard-boiled Malaya trilogy published by Monsoon Books.
Sheila made this quick sketch of me in one of the alleyways, eating noodles and sipping sweet white tea.
My phone’s in my hand because I was getting updates on the Jakarta terror attack which happened just south of us.
This gives you some idea of the awesome illustrations you can expect from the comic adaption of my novels. I’m working with a great team!
