The fact that the fandom here is Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai is rather significant. This entire set of illustrations is a combined effort of a trio of unlikely friends. One hailing all the way from PRC. The other a regular visitor of Singapore but stays across the causeway. And the last one, our resident boss and star artist, Xeph.
When all three incredible artists put together their love for the fandom and their immense skills, this epic collection. #CDS0028 (or whatever label the other groups gave it) Neighbours’ Club Diary, is the result.
One can never have enough friends. That certainly applies to our ever popular Xeph. There is something very Sena about that.
Beyond just the CDS and local circle of artists, he is constantly looking outwards to make new frienemies and bromance. Joining two other foreign talents, there was a threesome of best buddies. In the ensuring orgy of friendship and beautiful art, a compilation of their love for the 2D was created.
Neighbours’ Club Diary (or Rinjinbu no Seikatsu Nikki for those Japanese purists) is a work of art from Xeph and his friends. Bringing together the three star artists from three different doujin groups from three different countries, they present to us one of the strongest collection of Boku Tomo themed illustrations.

Having completed such a big project, we (most of us anyway) are excited about debuting it at AFA ’11 and would want to let everyone out there know about it. This, we cannot do on our own. We don’t have enough friends, after all. We need your help to do that. Please help us spread our message of friendship to all your friends and beyond. To do so, simply share any of our Facebook posts regarding Neighbours’ Club Diary on your wall or in any page/group.
Our request is of course, not without any rewards. Any fans who shared any news about Neighbours’ Club Diary will stand a chance to win a complimentary copy of the entire set. We will be keeping track of all the shares we get from now till 9th November 2011. At the end of the timeframe, we will select some fans randomly to give the set away. If you are selected, we will contact you via FB messaging and you will get to collect your complimentary set over at AFA ’11. (This applies for those retweets on Twitter as well.)

So one often read about art theft. It’s not something new and on our part, we had our fair share of it. While doing my research for this, I tried to access some of the old links containing instances when our art was stolen. Unfortunately, those links seem to be down. So what we have are here: Someone trying to sell T-shirts based on ours (and Daiyaku’s) artwork and another person trying to pass off Haimerejzero’s artwork for his own.
Art theft is a sticky topic and I suspect what I will say will be relatively shallow. But let’s try to establish a proper CDS stance on this nasty topic, ya?
