It\’s the evening of January 1, 2011 as I write this, feeling slightly depressed. Unlike many people, I loved 2010 and I\’m sad to see it go. I understand that 2010 was a bad year for a lot of folks, but it was a very good year for me. It\’s quite a relief because 2007 […]

Good news regarding those looking for the collected edition of Humanis Rex!, this full color series that came out in FUDGE Magazine from 2005-2007. Since Humanis Rex! was done in full color, it would be financially difficult for me to have a collection of it printed at the moment. I considered selling it through online […]

Last July 10, 2010, I was invited to attend the freshmen initiation at the St. Paul University in Manila. The theme of their initiation was \”Pinoy Komiks\”, and I had been invited to give a talk on the history and the state of the Philippine comics industry. I did not hesitate to agree because more […]

It feels weird that at the end of the month there\’s no Timawa for me to work on. For the past two years I\’ve devoted this time of the month to do the comics series for The Buzz and I have to admit, I kind of miss doing it. But part of me is happy […]

This is a book I\’ve been reading as research for a project I\’ll be starting soon. I got it at a local Booksale for 15 pesos. I got hired for it a couple of months back, but since it won\’t be out till next year, I actually haven\’t gotten the script yet. In the meantime, […]

The past couple of months have been a blur. As far as I\’m concerned, yesterday was the end of 2007, and today is a new day, and a new year. It feels very much like a whole new, and whole different chapter in my life. I worked like mad for the past several weeks just […]

In my earlier post I mentioned that it would be my last update for 2007. It turns out I had something more to say with only one day to go before 2008. I want to get all this out of my system before a new year comes rolling along so I can talk about something […]

Hello! Only a couple or so more weeks before Komikon and my work sked is simply unbelievable. To be able to finish my projects in time, specially Elmer #3 for Komikon, I\’m really going to have to go incommunicado for a while. I won\’t make any lengthy essays on my blog, no videos, and if […]

Arno from the comments section asked me about my drawing tools and I thought I\’d post a scan of some of the things I use to create my comics. I use a variety of tools, combinations of which differ with the kinds of projects I do. From the top, the first thing there is a […]

The date for this year\’s Komikon, The Philippine\’s annual Comics Convention, now on it\’s 3rd year, is finally set for November 17 at UP Bahay ng Alumni, UP Diliman, Quezon City. I will be launching three titles at the event: The Humanis Rex! Collected Edition, Elmer #3, and the collected edition of Francisco V. Coching\’s […]

Several people have asked why I wasn\’t at the recent Toycon. I really didn\’t plan on coming this year. In fact, I didn\’t attend other comics events recently like the one in Mall of Asia, and I most likely won\’t go to the Sci-Fi con as well. I just decided to concentrate on just working, […]

I\’ve always wanted to hand letter my own comics. And I wanted to letter them on the original artwork because I believe it to be an integral part of the art of a comic book page. And I still believe it. It\’s something I will apply to certain special projects like ELMER, which I will […]

My old monitor had been going screwy since late last year. It developed a slight flicker on top of the screen which disappeared after the monitor warmed up a bit. The flicker disappeared after longer and longer periods of time, until it never went away at all. I\’ve had to resort to shrinking the screen […]

Humanis Rex! was a proposal I\’ve had in mind for many years. It was part of a proposal package I sent to a local newspaper for their Sunday color strips. That didn\’t push through for one reason or another, and I proposed it again to another publication, this time a hobby magazine. Unfortunately the magazine […]
