A shower thought turned into a comic.

Previously after checking back at The Fishes stuff to trace back the references in old MRMF comics, I realized that back in 2004 this comic series got me thinking that Pisceans are fragile, sensitive, and bubbly (just because the theme of this comic is sweet fuzzy romance) and that kinda left me with a temporary soft spot for them, but as I got to college I realized that this WASN’T the case. I met quite a lot of rad-ass Pisceans who are tough as alloys (like this particular whimsy one whom I like to hang out with).

Perhaps it’s just the stereotypes people give to zodiacs. Now I’m not into starsigns & personalities and I’m probably incorrect, but according to the order of zodiac signs, Pisces is the last one so they assume they’re like the baby sibling and needs protection, whereas Aries and Taurus being the top two first ones, act like the rebellious tough big siblings running wild and headbutting whatever they feel like headbutting.

And that got me imagining, since The Fishes has a cute, mushy and cuddly theme, what this comic’s gonna be if the people were Taureans instead (because it’s my zodiac hurr hurr). Imagine the brutality. The chaos. The stereotypical stubbornness & determination.

Et voila.

Product Placement and The Fishes in old MRMF comics

Product Placement: Philips blenders

Ironic to think that I dislike product placement when back in my childhood I did one of the very first product placement in one of my MrMf comics.

Ok this was probably in 2005 when I’ve just entered a drawing contest in The Mall, sponsored by Philips. But I lost to thecarefree-art and got a consolation prize instead. Now these Philips blenders were one of the products displayed that we have to include in our drawings, and because I only got a consolation prize in the contest, I decided to draw these three blenders in my comics instead. Don’t know why though, maybe I was angry that I didn’t get the top three, or I was just inspired & momentarily attached to them like they were cats or something.

Honestly wtf is wrong with the plotlines in here? Running around in diners with blenders and randomly grinding people’s hands with them AIN’T pranks, it’s closer to homicide.



Dude what omgg

Was this the one with the Philips competition at the Mall back then because I found that awkward
But man your sense of humour in the comics were still great, even until now


Yeah, yeah it was.

Which one do you find awkward, the drawings or the fact that we have to incorporate Philips products in our drawings?
Bahahahahahahah thanks tho it is in a weird kinda way, and it’s evolving. Back when I was a kid everything I draw was all WTF.

The Fishes references

Oh boy another dick move!
Anyone remembers that comic by (ex-Gempakstarz artist) Ben Wong featured in Utopia Magazine called The Fishes? Yep that came around in 2004 or something.

One of the characters in The Fishes called Ann, (here’s the dick move I mentioned earlier) I subtly featured her as a cameo in MRMF as one of our prank victims (because we got bored of pranking Kari Kamiya from Digimon) and she ended up being stripped down and got her pants hooked on to helium balloons cuz embarrassment was the key to prank success.

During the early chapters I got too interested in the purple keychain (that matches the purple bag) and the art style. Since one of my friends in MrMf, Maj, is Pisces, I thought it’d be perfect to “give” her THIS keychain. And by “give” I mean “modify”. Paint it a different color and feature it in my comic with an added somethig: This keychain doubles as an ELECTRIC BUZZER, complete with a separate remote controller. Basic prank gadget.
