None Of You Care Enough About Textiles

As is becoming traditional for interviews, the more interesting and original the content, the fewer the views. I suppose that makes this your chance to be amongst the ELITE! One of the FEW.

I am an imperfect interviewer but I found all of this utterly fascinating. I interview Mun Kao and Zedeck Siew about their zine/ongoing artpunk D&D project A Thousand Thousand Islands and the conversation goes all over the place from Malaysian views of D&D, the politics of textiles, negative space in design, art-text collaboration and much more.

Mun Kao's Patreon, shame him into making more art and writing down the reading list he used to research South East Asian cultures for ATTI.

Politiko - the card game, and app, about Malaysian politics;

That Scandi game Trudvang Mun Kao mentioned as an inspiration.


  1. Yes! Thank you so much for doing the interview, and you two for being interviewed. Much love this project! I became a Patreon backer after Zedeck sent me a copy of the zines. This stuff is brilliant.

    So much so, that I had to figure out how to run it, and I knew D&D wasn't gonna do it for me. I wrote about it initially a bit here: There's also a Gauntlet blog post about it here: I've run games in the MR-KR-GR setting twice and we've had a blast.


  2. +1 for Mun Kao and Zedeck, they make such beautiful, evocative stuff. Hantu! was incredible.
