Yesterday, TeeKay-421 the official Belgian Star Wars fan club magazine revealed their cover for their upcoming issue 89. The cover was illustrated by me. Check it out below: The theme was Mandalorians. I could draw a number of famous Mandalorians played by Ray Stevenson or Jon Favreau or Katee Sackoff or Pedro Pascal. Then I thought Tiya Sircar missed out on playing Edge of the Empire with her castmates on GEGG Wars. I decided to have Sabine Wren roll some Fantasy Flight Games dice with a custom GM screen for the cover of issue 89. The original tweet is displayed below: Preview: TeeKay-421 Magazine 89 @TeeKay421be ! Art by @hishgraphics 🙂 pic.twitter.com/KpH4iYFtwq — Sompeetalay (@Sompeetalay) August 2, 2019Continue reading
And then it came to pass a couple of weeks back that a number of Star Wars Twitterfolk began talking about an animal. Specifically, the carcass of the creature that was the bait which drew Chewbacca and resulted in him, Luke, Han, Threepio and Artoo being captured in an Ewok net trap on Endor. Since its appearance in Return of the Jedi, the critter has been named, and is known as the verkle. In the midst of the discussion, I thought it would be amusing to sketch a conjectural design of what the whole animal would look like. Using inks and markers, I came up with the following: According to its wiki article, the verkle “prop is a white tailed deer with fake teeth added to the deer’s anus.” The original tweet: Return Of The Jedi is on #TNT right now. Has there EVER been a name given to that […]Continue reading
We had to balik kampung this Aidiladha holidays. The kampung we returned to was neither Ain’s nor mine. It was Irfan’s.
On Saturday, after my Research Method class and my colleague Anis’ sister’s wedding, we drove from Perlis all the way to Nia’s house. Nia was happy that we came. We also met Aiman, Zara and family there.
The plan was that the next day, Sunday, we would all rendezvous at the Botanical Gardens at Shah Alam. Ain and I have not been there since before we were married. This was the children’s first time visiting it.
There were flowers. There was a rope bridge. There was archery. There was even a troupe of monkeys.
Irfan and his cousins entered the bunny farm where Nia became superlatively elated. According to Irfan, she even fearlessly fed a large goat by hand. There were no photos of the goat, but we do have other photos.
I posted on Twitter videos of Irfan shooting arrows at orcs a bullseye:
The 16yo tried his hand in archery too today. pic.twitter.com/yyPq1PAXWT

He didn’t do too bad with the bow all things considered. pic.twitter.com/JNiVecZvpK

We were having lots of fun and it was only the second day in the Klang Valley.
With Ain away at Pasir Mas to take care of some things there, it was just Irfan and I at home for the weekend. After spending most of the weekend binging on The Terror, an excellent show by the way, we would have nothing else to do until the weekday rebooted itself. Thankfully, I had bought a couple of tickets for the Multicultural Night 2018 at the university great hall. After dark, we both drove there not just to check out the event, but also to hunt for dinner. What awaited us there was something that blew me away. Here are some Twitter posts, videos included. It’s the university’s Multicultural Night 2018. pic.twitter.com/zpzSGIsByq — Khairul Hisham (@hishgraphics) April 29, 2018 Who choreographed these students? It’s pretty awesome. pic.twitter.com/95oIn0uJI8 — Khairul Hisham (@hishgraphics) April 29, 2018 The Somalians have the stage! pic.twitter.com/LgpcbmyJlp — Khairul Hisham (@hishgraphics) April 29, 2018 The Indians […]Continue reading
Dice For Brains is an amazing Star Wars RPG actual play podcast, gamemastered by Ross Rockafellow using Fantasy Flight Games’ Force and Destiny rules. What makes the podcast stand out from other actual play podcasts is threefold: it is recorded well, crisp and clear voices of the players with hardly any disruptive external noises. Secondly, it sounds like the games have been edited professionally which presents the action very clearly to the listeners. Finally, the gameplay is extremely story-oriented whereby plot points AND dice result interpretations are sometimes repeated to ensure listeners do not get lost in the story. The players, like the professional actors they are, annunciate very clearly and speak out loud the action they are about to do and periodically what their player characters think of. This makes for an extremely dramatic actual play record of the game sessions being played, which are also enhanced by original music […]Continue reading
The Star Wars Show crew asked for some fan art of the Star Wars Show from the Twittersphere, so being a Twitterspheroid (or a spheroid of some sort) I thought I would oblige them. So here we have Andi Gutierrez in an Imperial gunner costume, Anthony Carboni in some smuggler’s outfit with CH-33Z in his arms and Pablo Hidalgo at the back with the Star Wars Sourcebook. I tweeted the image a couple of days ago (see Appendix A below) and then it was featured (for about 2 seconds) on the latest Star Wars Show on YouTube! Here be the latest episode of the show: Don’t forget to check out the other fan art submissions (and the rest of the episode) in the episode above. Also in the original tweet was the illustration I drew laid out as the cover to one of West End Games’ old Galaxy Guides. This […]Continue reading
Sketch Wars on Twitter had a porg theme over the week, so I thought I’d chip in with a porg wearing Rebel SpecForce outfit for some reason or other. Well, I thought it was hilarious.

It started as a sore right toe, specifically its joints. Right toe in great pain. What do I do about the pain? — Khairul Hisham (@hishgraphics) April 27, 2016 So I went to the doctor. After some questions, the doctor said, “WELCOME TO THE CLUB!” The doctor has the gout. So now I have the gout. Nothing to do but to consume the meds and control my diet to decrease the pain. Which I think might be a whole lot better than watching Showgirls.Continue reading
When I was reading the Laundry RPG rulebook away from home in Lunas, I thought I’d take a photo of the “What is a Roleplaying Game” section of the book and post it on Google Plus and Twitter. Here’s the link on G+. Over 130 reshares! And on Twitter the picture achieved close to a phenomenal 1,100 retweets! Here’s the screencap I took when it hit a thousand retweets. Even Cubicle 7, the publisher of the Laundry RPG, mentioned it on their official website! As usual I’m blaming the viral outbreak on the many-angled ones living at the bottom of the Mandelbrot Set.Continue reading
