Excerpts from The Greatest Webcomic You’ve Never Read
Available this Saturday at Komikon!
Sad Comics for Dirty Lovers is a small compilation of my comics and comics I made with friends over the past year with people like Apol Sta. Maria, Petra Magno, Carljoe Javier, Mihk Vergara, and Auti Nones!
60 pages! Black and white! Softbound! Nice Quality!
The Cover for Abangan: The Best Philippine Komiks 2014 edition that I collaborated with Elbert Or on. (I did some inks, he did some inks, he mostly colored it, I edited)
So this is sort of an announcement? It’s an announcement.
Abangan is an anthology of what we believe to be some of the best komiks out there being made by local Philippine comic creators. Elbert Or, Carljoe Javier, Adam David and myself were the editors and we put together what we think is a good sample of creators both known and unknown and we hope to share some of the more exciting comics being produced right now.
Right now, we’re setting up the pre-order system, but other than that, we hope to release it during Komikon 2014. We’re working with Visprint on getting the book published and distributed and are going to be giving away copies of the book in the next few weeks as a promotional stunt. Like our facebook page to get on that if you’d like.
Made on an iPad Air with Procreate and an Adonit Jot Touch 4.
Tried it out mostly because I was curious about the capabilities and limitations of the iPad and its apps and accessories when it comes to possibly making art. Right now, I’m still figuring out how much I can do with it but figured I’d start with something small in the usual vein of what I do. I bought one thinking I could now have something to carry around to draft art. Then I figured I could see how far I could take it.
It’s not perfect but it’s pretty amazing, I think, how tinkering with the brushes til I got comfortable enough with it how natural it felt and I could achieve something I would say I could usually do on a desktop.
Some bad Valentine’s cards I made for my friends.
Happy Valentine’s day, everyone.
a poster I did for the Rakenrol dibidi launch party happening this Saturday, with posters by Everywhere We Shoot! and Apol Sta. Maria,
There’ll be a free screening of the film at Fully Booked High Street at 7pm with a screening of the short film Mascot, an after party at ATTRACTION! REACTION! presents: RAKENROL (the dibidi launch afterparty), and an After After Party over at Black Market with the Diegos after the after party.
‘Pinoy Komiks: An anthology collecting comics from some of the best indie cartoonists in the Philippines, as well as cartoonists from around the world ‘
When people think of comics, they typically think of American super heroes, Japanese manga or Franco-Belgian bande dessinée. Unfortunately the world of Filipino indie comics rarely crosses the radar of the Western world, which truly is a shame. There is so much exciting work coming out of the Philippines, and we feel it is about time everyone started paying attention.
This book focuses on Filipino artists both from within the Philippines as well as those working outside of the country. It features a wide array of artists from popular web cartoonists, indie creators and even industry professionals working for big international publishers (we can’t name names!) We think you will be blown-away by the talent you will find in these pages.’

One of the first Kickstarter things I’ve gotten involved in. In return for some cash I could draw something for you custom made and what not, plus you get a book of some of the finest Filipino indie comics talent. The short story I made with Mihk Vergara is in this, too.
Thanks to Adam Pasion for getting me involved with this rad project. Hope people can get on board and support it because well, it could be something of a gateway for people to get into the Filipino Komiks Scene and also get us exposed more outside the country we love so much.
