We are delighted to share that our very own Digital Animation graduate, Erica Eng, is in the running for an Eisner Award – the comic industry’s equivalent to the Oscars! Her autobiographical slice-of-life webcomic titled ‘Fried Rice’ centres around a young girl from Batu Pahat, Johor named Min who aspires to be an artist and animator. Erica is the fourth Malaysian ever to be nominated in the prestigious awards, bringing pride and glory to our country. Loved drawing since young, she had actively participated in projects and competitions during her time at The One Academy, with her team’s short animated film ‘Farewell’ winning in the Kancil Awards and Asiagraph 2019. Huge congratulations and kudos to Erica as we wish her all the best in winning! You can read her ongoing weekly webcomic at www.friedricecomic.com.
