Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention 2009

I went for two days of the convention last year when it was held in Singapore for the first time – Day 1, Day 2. This year, I just visited on the second day.

There are more up-and-coming local as well as regional comic/pop artists this year compared to last year. I enjoyed looking through the wide range of works as I have a keen interest in design and illustration myself.

For toys, other than the usual vinyl toys, it’s good to see some familiar childhood brands like Playmobil and Hasbro also setting up booths.

The Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention 2009 has definitely grown bigger and better from last year. Here are some pictures to share:
