Yesterday I went to the last day of the 2nd Komiket Komiks university. Where we taught about komiks creation, from story to the the artworks. It was a nice experience and I would like to do it again if given a chance.
Last December I got a message from a client and he wanted me to create a comics. I’ve always been drawing comics since I was younger so I accepted. Leonard wanted a Family Circus inspired cartoon. He gave me all the things that I needed, like reference images, sample comic, the script etc. I did the comic and he liked It a lot that he gave me a tip. In return I gave him a caricature portrait of his family.
I was delighted to see my name on this article of Adobo http://www.adobomagazine.com/philippine-news/komiket-awards-and-more-mark-2nd-komiket. It was really unexpected that among all the big names of the event we were included on the article.
Today I am scheduled to draw a lot! I need to catch up to my deadline so I can do other things. I recently got lots of order which is great! But I can’t do it all so I started referring work to my artist friends that I know are free.

The 2nd Komiket was held yesterday, February 20,2016 in Elements Centris on Quezon Ave. Quezon City. It was a blast! I was there early around 6 in the morning to set up the tables and fix our stuff for selling. The day itself was great we met a lot people. We also managed to sell decent amount of komiks, stickers and prints. All is well. I was joined in the table by my friend and co-member of Pangalatoons, Kevin with his girl friend. It was lot of fun. After the event we had a great dinner at Shakey’s and head home. Now to prepare for Summer Komikon!
