Last Saturday I was at Fully Booked at Bonifacio High Street to participate in the Vinyl+Splash, The Ultimate Collectibles and Comics Convention. However, the primary purpose of the event seemed to be a series of auctions of artwork donated by comics, street and vinyl artists to benefit the United Nations World Food program.
At the fifth floor of Fully Booked. The place was, well… FULLY BOOKED!
Marvel and DC artist Harvey Tolibao working on a monster Psylocke drawing using only a ballpoint pen! His piece raised 30,000 pesos!
Comics retail chain store Comic Odyssey owner Sandy Sansolis and Marvel superstar Leinil Francis Yu.
The ELMER illustration I drew at the event. It raised 13,000 pesos at auction!
IDW artist Mark Torres draws up some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Marvel artist Edgar Tadeo draws up a Thor!
Marvel artist Stephen Segovia!
Dynamite artist Heubert Khan Michael!
Marvel artist Mico Suayan!
Legendary artist Tony De Zuniga!

Signing copies of Superior.
Harvey and his completed illustration. WOW!
I went to the event thinking it’s going to be a little fun event where I’ll get to meet and hang out with friends… it turns out to be much more fun than I expected, and surprisingly, also kind of a big deal as there was an incredibly huge turnout, and our collective artworks raised as much as 125 thousand pesos for the UN World Food Program. I thought that was incredible.
