Matei, here’s pg8. I am doing it in a much more controlled style. I intend for phase 2 to be the history of Singapore – how it became the city it is today. It’s sorta told through the ‘mind’ of a very prominent politician in the country.
I intend to rehash my drawings in Phase 1. You are right, I don’t think obscuring your drawings is such a good idea – sorry about that. My idea is phase 1 represent Singapore today – as told by the imaginary character that we see already.

Matei, here’s pg7. I’m really running all over your art here, obscuring much of your words. The idea is to use the visual juxtaposition to emotionally convey the brutal clash between ‘tradition’ and ‘modern’. I have some reservations of course – since comics is about pictures & words – no?

Matei, for these combo pages, I am going to run all over your art. I strongly feel this is how modernisation often ‘talks’ to tradition – through sheer superimposition. No deliberate strategy. Nonetheless, it inadvertently generates through pure accident&chance, patterns of relationships that would otherwise be unimaginable.

Hello Budi (also, dear colleagues)
I’m not a master in this, and i do not know if i have catched the cultural tension, but here are a few proposals of layouts. To be a bit more clear about how i see the book layout: Cover, one page with title then page 1 (is solo) after that we have 2+3, 4+5, 6+7… etc. is important beacause i made all the new layouts to go together. Of course reordering is possible, augmentation also. I do not whant to asign you a certain place. If you want you can do that for us and chose your pannels and then gimme feedback on that. So that is prety much it fo now. I wait for new drawings from you so you take the story in your hands and i’ll try to catch up. If not, as we say in Romanian farytales: your head wil lay were your feet are standing – harscht! of wit his head 🙂
One more thing. everithing beside the gray area is space for drawing.
Yo Matei. I’ve responded to your stuff. Will continue w/ the rest. Take care, man.

I did 2 more pages. This is what i propose for our common pages. I have left space for you to draw your stuff. You can delete from my drawing if you whant, total freedom. Also i put shades on one page to show you a more final version.
