Lai Tat Tat Wing
Woody Woody Wood is Lai’s first comic strip published in the Yellow Bus. Playful and humorous Woody Woody Wood and his good friend often make up funny and amusing scenes. In the illustrator’s eyes, Woody Woody Wood is a mixture of Lisa Simpson in The Simpsons and Old Master Q as he is as cute as a candy with the afro of Lisa Simpson and the chubby body of Old Master Q.
The local comic artist, also a cross-media creator, has been active in the comic scene for more than 20 years. Having published more than 20 comic works until today, Lai made his debut in 1995 with the comic strip Picking Up A Pig Tale. His weirdly colorful and amusing style has assumed wide popularity among readers. In 2005, he published the comic title Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, of which the rich and strong composition won the favor of European publishers, and thus the publication of the title’s French version by the end of 2007. In recent years, Lai issued his self-funded publication Barbecue Inferno Series: The Pork Chops Inferno and The Meatballs Inferno. In 2018, The Pork Chops Inferno was adapted into a theatre work to be staged in the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
