A Dark, Cold and Rainy Day

Filed Under Cooking, My Art, My Comics | Comments Off

That’s what it is today. Dark, cold and rainy. I like days like these because I personally find it very conducive to creating art. I don’t like it when I have to go out. And today I had to go out to the palengke to buy stuff to eat for the next few days. It […]

While most Filipino comics artists are making waves in mainstream superhero comics at the big companies like Marvel, DC, Image and Dark Horse, Andrew Drilon has been slowly and quietly making a name for himself as a fresh and innovative creator in the independent comix scene abroad as writer and artist. His latest short story, […]

First of all, don’t believe in any swine flu news coming from me, or from other people who really aren’t in any position to know. Twitter and Plurk and Facebook are not the best places to get the latest fact based breaking news about it. Twitter may be a good place to have an idea […]

Just a quick reminder that Wilson Tortosa’s signing for Wolverine: Prodigal son is TODAY at Comic Odyssey, Robinson’s Galleria, 1-3pm.

It can’t be anything else on Free Comic Book Day but INSANE, with all these comic book creators coming to sign and sketch. The only other time you will be able to see these many creators together would be at Komikon, which doesn’t happen very often.

I’ll be signing and sketching at this year’s Free Comic Book day (May 2, Saturday) at Comic Odyssey, Robinsons’ Galleria from 1 to 4pm. I’ll sign everything you guys bring, even if it isn’t mine! ha! ha! Bring a stack! The sketch requests are coursed through the shop so please feel free to contact Sandy […]

Last year I was invited to participate in a comic book anthology called “Liquid City”, to be particpated in by many other South East Asian comic book creators (and then some), and published by Image Comics. To be honest, I really had no idea what I was in for. I expected to just do the […]

Wilson Tortosa will have a signing at Comic Odyssey, Robinson’s Galleria on April 25, 2009 from 1-3pm. With Wilson are Jan Michael Aldeguer and Romulo Fajardo.

My original comic book art page has just been updated with more items from stuff I’ve inked. You can also find artwork for one complete Graphic Classics story which I pencilled and inked. There’s even a page each drawn by Gene Ha and Phil Jimenez. I hate to let those go, but well, blame the […]

George Orwell, according to wikipedia, was an English author whose work is marked by a profound consciousness of social injustice, an intense opposition to totalitarianism, and a passion for clarity in language. His most famous works are the satirical novel Animal Farm (1945) and the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). Nineteen Eighty-Four was a frightening […]

It was a very tiring Tuesday. I went to Manila to meet with a few people. I had a really nice long talk with Ruel de Vera, writer for the Philippine Daily Inquirer. Also talked quite a bit with colorist Jay David Ramos, as well as old pal Dennis Villegas. They’re people from vastly different […]

I’ve had occasion to visit Cubao a lot recently, partly to visit SPUTNIK, a rather unusual comic book store. If you’ve seen it, you know what I mean. The exterior is mostly designed after popular indie comic book “Nardong Tae” so you can expect to see something like that. Well, OK, here’s a photo: The […]

I’ll be going to Robinson’s Galleria today and I’ll be there from 4-7:30 pm to hand carry Elmer sets for people who reserved them. However, I have an extra owner-less set which any interested party can buy as long as they can be at Robinson’s Galleria today. I’ll just be in the Comic Odyssey area. […]
