Ubisoft Singapore's First Exhibition - "Art In Video Games" on 8th and 9th November 2013

Curious about what kind of artistic endeavours are involved in computer and video games?

Here's a chance for folks to get a peek of what goes behind the scenes in game development. Ubisoft Singapore, the local outfit for global interactive game creator and distributor Ubisoft, will be holding its first art exhibition on 8th and 9th November, 2013.

The exhibition entitled "Art In Video Games" will be held at Ubisoft Singapore's partner school, FZD School of Design. And there is no admission charge for the exhibition!

Ubisoft is the developer for popular action-adventure game franchise "Assassin's Creed". "Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag", the new pirate fantasy based game series, is set for a worldwide release on Playstation and X-box 360 on 29 October, 2013.

Singapore Zombie Walk 2013: Where The Small Ones Are The Scariest!

The sequel to last year's Singapore Zombie Walk 2013 was held last night (Oct 26) at the Cathay. And as they say, it's difficult for a sequel to measure up to the original.

It could have been the venue (the Cathay is usually a dead zone on normal days anyway) but Red Dot Diva thought yesterday's walk was more than undead. There were hardly any interested on-lookers wandering around the mall to spur a starving zombie's appetite. Last year's walk held at Clarke Quay was definitely a more intense and thrilling zombie carnage.

Book Launch at MPH Parkway - Cheeming Boey's "When I Was A Kid 2"

Looking at Cheeming Boey promoting his new book  "When I Was A Kid 2" at the MPH Parkway store on Oct 6th, Red Dot Diva found it difficult to imagine him as a "fat kid" described in his blog and books. For in contrast, the adult Boey standing before her was quite the handsome, lean and muscly specimen.

The Malaysian writer-artist was back in the Red Dot Island that weekend to promote his second book with a series of book signing sessions at the Kinokuniya flagship and JEM stores.

And because the MPH Parkway store had opened its doors only a few days before, Boey was also specially invited to hold his book launch there.

Introducing VLogger and Digital Media Producer - Richy!

Last weekend's New York Comic Con 2013 was a whole lot of craziness and fun!

Red Dot Diva has so much to write and recap about the convention. She has already posted a few NYCC photos on the RDD Facebook page , so do check them out while she work on catching up with articles.

Now that she is safely home, Red Dot Diva is getting right back into this serious-glam thing called blogging.

First on the to-do list is to introduce an exciting collaboration with exuberant, articulate and not to mention, very cute, 21-year-old Richy from Chicago.

Richy is a pop-culture v-logger and digital media producer and he talks about TV shows, trailers, movies, games, and conventions on a regular basis. He considers "The Walking Dead", "Bones" and "Grey Anatomy" his top three favourite TV shows that on air currently, and thinks "Adventureland" is the worse movie he's ever seen. (It stars Kirsten Steward, so no argument there. :P ) Richy also edits and produces his own skits, namely one hilarious scare-thriller called "Home Alone".

Singapore Zombie Walk Returns - This Time At The Cathay!

The local zombies of the Red Dot Island variant have sure taken their time to shuffle across from Clarke Quay to Handy Road.

It has taken them about a year. Just nice for The Singapore Zombie Walk 2013 held on October 26th - a few days before Halloween!

The undead are expected to gather at The Cathay (Handy Road) and Red Dot Diva thinks they have managed to infect more humans in the span of one year. Last year's zombie infestation stood at 131. Early warnings have put the number to be a high of 500 this year.

A wonderfully scary thought indeed.

NYCC 2013: Many Exciting Guests, Exhibits and.... The Nerd Machine!

New York Comic Con (NYCC) just seems to get bigger and glitzier each year.

Red Dot Diva first attended NYCC in 2011, and the number of more TV or movie-related panels and guests have increased in the last two years.

Still, NYCC is a far more comics-centric convention compared to San Diego Comic-Con. The number of creators attending as guests in NYCC is any comic fan's wildest dreams. And the space set aside for Artist Alley is mind-blowingly huge, with rows and rows of comic artists eager to connect with people who are or will be interested in their work. Also, since NYCC has a far less hectic crowd than Comic-Con, the chances of one meeting and having more time with their favourite comic creators or artists are fairly high.

Check out the very LONG list of comic guests here!
