Drops in the Ocean

After months of putting it off here it is at last: post-con sales post for the ~50 copies of Drops in the Ocean I had reprinted recently. I'm sorry it took so long to get this up! Here is some information about the book.
  • It is a rather ambiguous* story about a wish made in an aquarium, and how it was granted (or not?), and features a grumpy talking rabbit
  • It is 28 pages long (22 pages of actual story, of which 8 are in colour and the rest greyscale)
  • The colour pages are not as bright as in the previews (after CMYK conversion)
  • It is 7" x 10", quite flat, with laminated covers, the paper used for the pages is kind of thin (Sorry to be anal, I felt I should mention all this because this is not CF and you can't flip through it before buying)
Page 1 (one of the eight pages in colour) Page 3 Page 6.</cut>
The book is US$7 (I am going to pack it in a bubble envelope) and shipping via registered mail (2-3 weeks, with parcel tracking) is roughly $6 for the US/Canada, $5 for Europe and $4 for Australia/Asia. Afraid I can only accept Paypal at the moment or money transfer to a Malaysian bank account.. Btw if you are in Malaysia forget the above, it is RM15, though you'll have to let me know if you'd prefer registered mail, Poslaju or pickup (the last is FOC but you will have to encounter my stupid cat face) To order please email hwei (dot) lim (at) gmail with:
  • 'Drops order' in the subject line
  • Your paypal email (to help keep track)
  • Your physical mailing address (and your name to go on the envelope)
I will reply to your email to let you know how to settle it from there. Thanks so much and sincere apologies to everyone who kept asking patiently after this book over the past four months. If you do place an order, thanks so much for your support and kindness! I kept a list of everyone who asked about it so if you did at some point and only come to this post after a few days no worries as I have reserved you a copy in case you are still interested (it is okay if you are not, I'll update the list as time goes by) Cheers hwei *This is a moot point, all my stories are somewhat ambiguous

Hello. We don't know each other, I found your lj when searching for anything Raidou related and have read occasionally since. (It's lovely, thank you for drawing. And sorry for not commenting - not the best english from my direction.) I don't unfortunately know most of your fandoms, but I love how your style is intense and at the same time relaxing to look at.

I don't know would you have sold it for random people from internet but Drops in the Ocean looks just like collector's item and eeeek if I just managed to miss my copy by reading this too late. ^_^'
Apr. 14th, 2011 08:50 pm (UTC)
AHHHH How did I miss this in my friendslist! It looks so lovely, why is everyone coming out with excellent artbooks so close to eachother sob my wallet I Hope there are still some left after I can fill up my paypal...
Apr. 14th, 2011 10:21 pm (UTC)
ooooh I just emailed you an order. Thank you for making this available!
Apr. 15th, 2011 01:57 am (UTC)
So sorry, spazzed out and tried to email you so quickly I didn't completely read that you had closed orders. ;A;

B-but I want one so bad s-sorry...
Apr. 15th, 2011 03:15 pm (UTC)
Thank you for such a beautiful book!
Apr. 16th, 2011 11:48 am (UTC)
Argh, I just read that you closed your orders, I'm too late ;_;

Will you do another reprint in the future ? I will be interested =)
Apr. 17th, 2011 08:11 pm (UTC)
These previews look absolutely gorgeous! I see that you closed orders, but I really admire your drawings and your approach to sequential art, and I just wanted to say hello since I friended you out of nowhere. Thank you for sharing your art.
Apr. 20th, 2011 06:33 pm (UTC)
Words cannot express my joy---
Just sent in my email :DDD
Apr. 20th, 2011 06:35 pm (UTC)
Eeep, I just read that you closed orders? ;-;
If you do another reprint I would definitely be interested!
Jul. 5th, 2011 01:55 am (UTC)
I'm so depressing you would both grow up to be emo kids

If you hadn't closed orders and if my wallet was not starving I would buy this so hard.
Jul. 11th, 2011 02:34 pm (UTC)
I've returned home and got my hands on my copy~ It's beautiful! Thank you so much for writing/drawing/having it printed. <3
