Back In Black

Gilamon new series of T-shirt is finally here. It called the Gilamon Black series and the whole range will be printed on hard core black tees. There will be 4 designs, first 2 is out in July while the next 2 will be available by the end of the year. Design 01 is Bela: Death is Certain by Sau Lim. Design 02 is Lefty’s Major Zombie: Jump. 02 is a re-mastered version of our previous design. We made this again because the respond to the previous version was very overwelming. And because you demmanded it, we have made XL size for this series. The tees will be available in Headquarter, Cineleisure and Galleriiizu’s brand new digital gallery from 7th July. We have prepared limited edition posters for those early birds who buy our products so come quickly. All tees will be packed in a stylish black capsules with freebies like mini comics and stuffs thrown in. You can also buy them online at teelive soon.

Galleriiizu’s digital art gallery will have its grand opening on the 7th July at Lot1.07, Ground Floor, Central Martket, Annexe, KL. We will be there to promote Gilamon Black with BigBros’ “I Love You Baby” character artbook.

For Love or Money

On the second session of “Love & Money”, a British Council’s international designer event, Gilamon took on a bigger role (we missed the boat on the first one due to the dateline of ourgraphic novel). We had a booth and Mike represented us for the Pecha Kucha night.

The turn ups for that day was much greater than the previous “L&M” event (26 May). Lots of design students as well as new designers attended. The pros are there too, we had some good chats with Tin Toy, Chun Woei Urban Creatures, the boys of 84Cubes, the Pipit couple, Driv, Radio among others.

Juan came back from Singapore to launch Big Bros’ latest artbook release, “I Love You Baby”, a 400+ pages of character design collection. All the stocks were completely soldout with lots of standing orders. See our June webnews for info related to “I Love You Baby”.

Back to “L&M2”, Gilamon’s booth served as a sneek preview for our latest range of tees entitled Gilamon Black. We want to thank the British Council for inviting us to this event.

Talk Talk

As a grant winner who have completed our task, Gilamon was invited to share their experience during MDeC’s Digital Comic Talk. The event, which is to encourage participation in the MSC IP Creator Challenge was held at the KL Hilton on the 14th of June, 2007. The hall was packed with closed to a hundred audiences. Among them are college and university students, veteran and up coming talents.

Lefty gave the talk on behalf of Gilamon, shared about Gilamon’s work and background, elaborating on how we are trying to cross the border to other fields such as fashion, design and digital. He also gave out tips for those who are going to take part in the IP Challenge. Lefty shared the stage with PeKOMIK president, Mohamad Azhar Abdullah and Malaysian comic legend, Jaafar Taib. Aadi Salman, Milx, Alan Quah, Kromosom and Eisu are among the cream of the crop of Malaysian comic industry who came to show their support.
