Today was the first Komikon Grand Independent Komiks Market convention or “Indieket”, at the Bayanihan Center in Pasig, Metro Manila. It’s basically a Komikon, but emphasis on locally produced independent komiks. I was there today to give a talk on how Elmer developed from it’s inception to right up to it’s international recognition. Hopefully, those who are doing komiks today might get some pointers on how to try and do the same thing. Because to be honest, if I can do it, anybody can do it, and probably even surpass what I did.
I remain amazed at how much Philippine Independent komiks still persist and continue to grow stronger as time goes by. I went around the floor and it’s full of enthusiastic artists creating comics for nothing but the love of the medium.
Mabuhay kayong lahat!
