Giant nerd boyfriend face reveal

I sat down with Fishball and her editor, Bekah Caden, at C2E2 to talk about her webcomic, touring the US for the first time, being an artist for a living, and, of course, her giant nerd boyfriend. Fishball: The convention is good. It is actually spaced quite nicely and it has a very relaxed atmosphere. So, yeah, I really enjoy it. CP: This is your second convention in America right? How does it feel knowing you have such a big following across the seas?

OMG THE BIG FACE REVEAL!! MY GIANT NERD BOYFRIEND

I sat down with Fishball and her editor, Bekah Caden, at C2E2 to talk about her webcomic, touring the US for the first time, being an artist for a living, and, of course, her giant nerd boyfriend.

Fishball: The convention is good. It is actually spaced quite nicely and it has a very relaxed atmosphere. So, yeah, I really enjoy it. CP: This is your second convention in America right? How does it feel knowing you have such a big following across the seas?

Is that something you were expecting? Fishball: Not really? Fishball: I would say they are either really excited or they did not expect how I look like. But then again, I have shown my face in one of my strips. Fishball: It feels amazing. Is your comic really popular in Malaysia? CP: I know a lot of people are also asking for photos of the giant nerd boyfriend. How does that feel? How have people responded to seeing him in person? Fishball: There are actually two very different responses.

Fishball: Americans are so tall! He stuck out like a sore thumb back in Asia. Here, he actually feels in his element. Have you written webcomics before this? Fishball: Not really. CP: You work with an editor. Bekah is actually here with us right now as well. Bekah Caden: Not at all, actually. Bekah Caden: Free-range?

How do you feel having an editor, Fishball? Fishball: Yeah pretty hands-off. I enjoy making comics. Illustration-wise, you have to deal with clients. You have to deal with your art director.

Have you guys ever thought about collaborating or have you collaborated on anything? Fishball: Well, for some of the strips, he did contribute a bit.

Like maybe some of the headers. Some of the little bonus that readers will ask for, he will do those. So collaboration is not something we can do. I had no idea that he would help you out with some of those strips. Fishball: He helps me in editing the strips. Every time I sketch the idea out, he will look at it first. So entirely, I think I have two editors. Fishball: Not exactly make up.

I would exaggerate situations to make the comic more interesting. Is that making up? CP: I mean, in writing terms, we call that creative nonfiction, where you start exaggerating real events. CP: What do you think the reaction would be if your clients found out that this is something you do?

CP: Now that people know what you look like, have people stopped you on the street yet? I am too. CP: Your mother and brother are featured in the comic a few times. How do they feel about you being an artist and how do they especially feel about traveling to another country to talk about your art? Fishball: They are proud of me, I would say. So I tried to convince them that I could and eventually, they let me. So here we are.

Fishball: I went to art school. They did not teach me how to do webcomics. But on the narrative and the graphic, it did teach me how to put words around the design.

It kind of influenced my art a little. CP: Do people ask you about relationship advice a lot and if they do, what do they ask you about? Fishball: I would say that they just ask me in the comments section. How do you deal with the not so nice side? I actually made a strip about it. Sort of like advice for people who get into arguments and how to resolve them.

I know some people would just choose to ignore comments. Beyond Manga: Webtoons are Going Viral. CP: Bekah, this question is for you. Fishball, what is your ideal illustration day? Fishball: It must be raining outside. The weather must be nice and cool. And then I have tea. I can draw a lot of illustrations on that kind of day. CP: Is the Giant Nerd Boyfriend in this ideal illustration day or do you have to have him in a separate room?

Fishball: He is in the corner of the other room and he is doing his stuff and I am doing my stuff. What advice do you have for people who are just breaking into comics or are looking to create art but are a bit intimidated by people who are already in it? Fishball: That was also one of my main concerns when I started. People have already done relationship strips before.

Why should I do it? It can be quite discouraging. The thing I did is that I powered through it. I told myself that not everyone can draw this genre the same as the others. I just took it and I ran with it. And here we are. A few mangas. Fishball: Of all time!? Why would you make me choose?

CP: Great choices. Fishball: Not yet. Not yet. But there will be future projects. CP: And one last question. Thank you so much for talking with me! Bekah highly suggests keeping an eye on their social media accounts. Fishball: Hi, I am okay. The signing today was—wow! CP: How are you enjoying the convention so far? Fishball: Yeah, just about. CP: How have fans responded to meeting you? CP: How do you feel meeting all your American fans? Fishball: I would say…less.

Fishball: Yeah yeah yeah. Bekah: Pretty hands-off. Fishball: Yeah.
