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.
