Exploration brings discovery

While going on photowalks, sometimes I manage to find other things besides photographs. Who said photowalk are for taking photographs only! At DBS Marina Regatta, I stumbled upon this cool pop up store selling earrings, rings and cufflinks, made using vintage comics!  Lovely concept and it is great to see how old comics can be made new again.  

There were plenty of vintage comics design available from Star Wars, Superheroes, Tintin, Simpsons, Popeye and more but I was naturally attracted to all the Calvin and Hobbes designs. I am a big fan of Calvin and Hobbes as you can probably tell from the homepage of my website. Many of the comic strips by Bill Waterson have inspired me greatly. I was initially spoilt for choice, plus you get choose your own pairing if you do not like the ones that are placed together. I decided to get this pair of cufflinks even though I currently do not wear cuff shirts to work! I wanted it to be a reminder that I must never lose that childlike curiosity and thirst for exploration in future if I continue to stay in the corporate world and the time comes that I have to wear cuff shirts.

The shop name is Nerilia and their facebook page has only 30 likes as of current posting so I think more people should know about it! Check out facebook.com/NeriliaAccessories!
