Today, we are pleased to share an excerpt from Weng Pixin’s “Infatuation,” published in the collection Sweet Time & Other Stories by Drawn & Quarterly in June 2020. Sweet Time & Other Stories is an intimate rumination on love, empathy, and confidence by an artist with a unique voice. The stories collected in Sweet Time were written between 2008-2017. These pages are gorgeous and intricate, full of color, hope, and longing. Weng Pixin has previously been published by Latvian comics publisher kuš!, and two stories published by kuš! are featured in this collection.
Weng Pixin (Pix for short) was born in 1983 and grew up in sunny Singapore. She loves nighttime rainfalls, reading non-fiction books, and eavesdropping on sing-song conversations among the toads who live right below her apartment.
