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.

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.
