Flipping through a 1953 issue of Liwayway Magazine, I was immediately struck when I saw this illustration. Illustration signed by “Leynes” To my eyes, the couple looks so much like Arlan and his wife May. Arlan only looks slightly similar, but May looks almost exactly the same. You can see for yourself in the tribute […]

This video is actually a school project by students of De La Salle University in Dasmariñas, Cavite. They interviewed me, along with many other comic book people in 2006 for this project. They had given me a copy, and reviewing it again recently I thought that it would be such a waste to just let […]

Taking you back a couple of weeks to KomiksTrip because Flippish.com did this really extraordinary video of the event: http://www.flippish.com/komiks-trip/2010/02/18/ KomiksTrip 2010 http://gerry.alanguilan.com/archives/2404

Oh, yeah!

I want to thank the organizers of yesterday’s Renaissance event, all the artists gave their time to do sketches, Leinil Francis Yu, and all the people who came and supported us. It was completely unexpected that the money generated from the sketches, as well as Leinil’s sketchbooks and original artwork, was eventually donated towards the […]

February 21 Update: Renaissance is TODAY, but I will be late. Lots of work stuff still to finish. I’ll be there around 11:30am onwards. The first thing that people ask is… what is “Renaissance”? There seems to be some confusion as to what it is, I know. Even the posters that have come out have […]

February 18, 2010 Arlan passed away at 5:30 this morning. :( Thanks for all your comments. Arlan was very appreciative of all the messages posted for him on this blog. I printed out the comments and gave it to him, and he read them all himself just a few days ago. The Art of Arlan […]

I’ll be doing at least 10 sketches this Sunday at Renaissance, which would be first come first served at the venue. I think we will be limiting sketches to headshots only. To anyone who would be getting sketches, not only from me but from the other artists, please keep in mind that if you have […]

Click Image for Larger Scan. This looks like a pretty cool contest for the younger ones. I’m posting it here for its tie up to the Renaissance event on Sunday (more info on that here). I wish JackTV made a more web viewing friendly poster. This looks hard to see with small font size like […]

Autobiographical comics, or diary comics, is probably the one remaining genre of comics that have yet to be explored fully in Philippine comics. It is a genre virtually unheard of in the old industry, and it is a genre that very few modern day creators have tried. Is it because Filipinos don’t really want to […]

KOMIKSTRIP, the first UPLB (University of the Philippines, Los Baños) Comics Convention is today! I’ll be on hand first thing in the morning to give a lecture on the History of Philippine Comics for the workshop, and then pretty much for the entire day I’ll just be peddling chickens and bold stars. More info here! […]

This is a short video interview with me conducted by Pepper Marcelo around 2005. This was initially intended to be a much bigger thing, with more artists and not just me in it, I was told. I don’t know exactly what happened, but Pepper decided to put this together so at least my part of […]
