Last couple weeks I got a few people asking me why 52 in puppy52?

The short: Puppy= Xiao gou 小狗
was my pen name when I submitted comic strips to the papers in my teens,
52 looked like a heart shape so the meaning = puppy love.

The picture above is the scan of the cover of my first book, drawn in my late 16, published when I was around 17 years old. It was entitled “from puppy with love” and designed such that to look as if it says “Puppy Love”. It was my first attempt to draw something that over 100 pages, and there is countless mistakes in it which I am embarrassed to mention!

I’m not very proud of the standard of my work inside, but I am still to date thankful for the chance to have it published at my tender teenage years. I must also thank the countless people who helped me made it possible then, it was definitely an experience of a lifetime!

The long of it, and the foreword which cracked me up still…


Thank you gordon for helping me with the script (which I hope I am using correctly!)

    xiao pian i see. that’s one of the friday weekly staffs. i used to read friday weekly when i was a kid and there is where i came across your drawings and comics. ^^

    btw the scripts is correct but do note that since u already used para1 and para2, for future posts u need to use para3 and para4 and so on if not the script will crash.

    hey, you did that when you were in your teens? that’s pretty good! Looks like you’ve been in the profession for a while then. It looks very professional.

    You’re born in the year of the dog? Then you’re about my sister’s age then. She draws too! :)

    I like your site, so I’m gonna add it to my blog roll.
