Spotted! Troy Chin


Singapore-born Troy Chin is probably best know for his ongoing autobiographical comic book narrative, The Resident Tourist. As well as being incredibly witty this comic series crackles with truth, sincerity and honesty.

Troy went overseas for a while to work at a record label. He came back in 2007 and started drawing comics. Because he is not an artist by trade, he has to try a lot harder. Music and video games help him out immensely though. 

We figured it was about time he shared his work and answered some questions. But to find out who Troy is and what exactly goes into the making of his comics, you’re going to have to watch the video interview over at Commonpeople. Wicked!

Hard copies of The Resident Tourist 1,2 and 3 are available from Ani-Play, G&B Comics and Kinokuniya Main Store.
