Here's Hoping!

Journal entry #63

Hi Journal!  Long Time no write!

There were a number of things that happened since I wrote to you.  Of course the Point Zero booth at the Komikon was more fun with Dante and Mina around (after the success of GTMACCCon)!  They had quite a number of fans.  :D  

I also got some good feedback about Curtains For Hire (now a certified tearjerker, after 5 people told me they did cry a bit while reading).  And sometime after that, I met a couple of Japanese professors researching about women and comics around Asia ( they were pretty awesome ladies  :3 ).  It was an awesome meeting (and what an awesome topic)!   Thanks to Khursten for the opportunity.  :D

I just recovered from a nasty asthma/cough/cold.  I was supposed to work on Cresci Prophecies page inks, but instead I spent my holidays being sick.  I even missed two family reunions.  Sucks I know...  =_=

But there's a bit of a good news.  I am finally working on chapter 25 inks.  Remember last March?  It took me almost a year to get chapter 25 done.  Mainly because, there were so many things that happened this year that I could hardly focus on the CP pencils. Now that I can work on it again, I decided to make CP4 a little better that the previous volumes.

Changes in shading and inking (I'm sure if you'ld notice it though)...and maybe a little change in the process.  The new inking process is...well...taking a little longer than it usually does.  Ah heck, hopefully it looks better than before...*crosses fingers*

Here's hoping 2013 would have more opportunities. And hopefully, release the last book for CP: Arcen.  I've got a long way to go (there's also other work to be done), so I better start as soon as I can...  I can't wait to work on it again!

Keep on Improving!

Journal Entry #62
November 22, 2012

Hiyaa Journal!

Its almost a month after Komikon and I’m still awestruck with what I have witnessed during the event. I mean seriously, who would have thought the industry is growing this rapidly fast despite some people’s claim that komiks is dead. Well, the industry’s still on survivor mode, but nevertheless, its obvious that in five or ten years, WE CAN MAKE IT BIG. And all I dream of right now is to be a BIG part of the industry when that moment comes.

That being said, my entire focus at the moment is to KEEP ON IMPROVING. I browsed on my previous comics and works and I was like, ‘Oh heck, I’VE GOT A LOT OF WORK TO DO. Truth is, I am my worst critic. I can’t feel contentment everytime I finished my work. It’s like, ‘Uh, this part’s ugly, Now that’s one awkward fighting pose, awful background, etc.

I HAVE TO IMPROVE MY CRAFT. I’VE GOT TO KEEP ON IMPROVING. After Komikon, I’ve never let an opportunity to draw pass without having the most out of it. Day and night, all I did is practice and practice. My burning desire to make it big in the industry is at the utmost level.

My work had been criticized and insulted most of the time, but I have to accept them and be honest with my self as well. There are so many things that I have to really work on. Right now, I’ve finished several pages of my latest comic book, yet after reviewing my scripting and lineart, I decided to start all over again. I promised myself that my next comic book will entirely be on a different level compared to my last one. It has to be, or else, I’m not releasing a new title anytime soon. That’s a promise not only to myself but to all the readers out there as well! :D

I’ll never quit . I’d rather die trying. I’ll kill myself trying. No matter what, nothing’s gonna stop me from reaching and achieving my goal. I’LL MAKE IT BIG!!!! I SWEAR I WILL!!!!! :D

Till next time journal. Time to practice with my newly purchased maru pen. :D

...And I write this with cherry on top.

Journal Entry # 61

There’s just so many things I’d like to say, and a lot in my head right now that I can’t possibly fit in 3 paragraphs (our usual conversation).  So, Journal, I know you might react, but allow me to babble a lot LOT longer…again…. ^_^;

If you remembered my last journal (link), I did mention about the GTMACCCon 2 event.  So since then, we’ve been preparing for that, and Komikon.  Well, things didn’t go as smoothly as we wanted…

A little after the pre-event in UP, Karla broke some bad news involving the skit.  So here’s Murphy’s Law brandishing its nasty plackard at us.  We needed to find new cosplayers for the extra roles.  It’s not easy inviting people to cosplay characters outside their fandom.  So I posted an announcement, hoping I could get a tall guy to play Ceredion.  

A day later, I bumped the thread.  Kit called out a few names and we got Joshua to play the role!  I’m so glad we found somebody.  :D

And then we lost another guy to play Mortus.  This was around 3 weeks before the event. So I posted another announcement hoping somebody would be interested.  And then FPJ (Indie Komiks Manila’s founder) said he wanted to be a villain!  Awright!  :D

I sent out character profiles to Joshua and FPJ.  I was having a bit of trouble with the skit then, but Karla and I did talk it over at the chat, so I had an idea, but it wasn’t easy putting it on paper (since there’s a time limit).

And since it’s a skit, we had to rehearse…and Oh the costumes!  Our schedules didn’t jive, so we four hardly met online to chat.  Fortunately, I got some rough measurements from the two guys (I also thank Freely Abrigo for helping me out), and had the costumes made.  I was a little nervous about the costume since the shop was also busy.  

Three days before the event, I bought Ceredion’s wig, I met up with Karla and Joshua to rehearse.  The sky was so bleak that I doubted we could rehearse outside (and we can’t do that inside a mall after all).  So we just chatted about the story, characters,  and how they could portray them.  After walking around the mall, we fortunately found a place that works as a stage (with few people around) and there we practiced the script.  It was really fun!  We just relied on my cellphone to play the track…

Oh did I mention that I had to learn to edit an MP3 track to submit  for our soundtrack a few days before the deadline?  (I‘m really clueless…but I did it anyway) XD

Night before the event, I had to pickup the guys’ costumes, prepared some props for the skit.  It was an exhausting week…

Last Sunday, it was my first time to visit the University of Makati (UMAK) which turned out to be Joshua’s Alma Mater.  They had a big theater with really nice facilities… And a big stage.  

Hubby and I got there around 9AM, and people were already rehearsing their skits  (including Richard Arguilla and Team CATCH, and Lucy Patweetums).  We also saw Tepai and Maika waiting for Visdei.

I thought this day was gonna be easy…But NOOOOooo.  Murphy’s Law…Again…Several times that day!  Why you liek us so much?  X(  Daming aberya nung araw na yun!  At least my trio’s complete!  

While we waited for the ballots, Joshua was also helping out the other cosplayers with their skits.  Being a nervous wreck, with all the snags happening that day and doing emergency cosplay improvisations, FPJ’s words in the dressing room stuck to me… “For the love of Cosplay….*while spraying his hair with silver paint*”.

There,  I was really REALLY grateful to have FPJ do the Mortus role, to have Joshua to do Ceredion (who’s really determined to give the character justice in the skit), and to have Karla play Silaya (who still looked darn pretty, even after the troublesome morning journey).   I was with people who would go through all that trouble just to make a great cosplay performance that day… A cosplay of my characters to boot!  

After drawing lots (for the perfomance order), taking pictures, taking the front row seats…the event proper finally started. After a magic show, a couple of peptalks on stage with Jin Joson and Manix Abrera, the first batch of entries took the stage.

Each entry had a video of the creators talking about the characters, and the cosplayers talking about the characters they’ll be portraying.  The skits were priceless!  XD  We enjoyed the skits so much…but I was nervous about our skit too…

When finally it was my team’s turn, hubby took out the camera and started recording.  Here’s the full skit (click!) .

(pic by Tepai Pascual)

  I kinda sensed my trio was really nervous. But hey!  It turned out alright!  I can feel Ceredion’s frustration on stage, Mortus’ sarcasm, and see Silaya fawn over her bishie pics and ignoring Ceredion’s moves to woo her…I’m so glad they pulled through!   ;w;

(pic by Ariel Atienza)

I also took a video of the Mark skit for Meganon since they can’t film themselves on stage.  XD

When the second batch came in, I personally anticipated hubby’s team skit. I’ve seen previous Dante and Mina cosplays before, but this is the first time Melvin worked with the cosplayers. When it was their turn, the fan girls and fan boys screamed all around!  Here’s the skit (Click!).

The Q and A portion, in my opinion, must have been the toughest part of the competition.  ALL of the contestants were in the “Hot Seat” to put it mildly.  The questions were extremely difficult and tricky…

But you know?  They all gave really good answers.  That part of the program showed how the cosplayer entries actually think.  It’s an interesting revelation, and kudos for a job well done! (Me and Tepai were listening carefully during that time)

When the time finally came, we all came up on stage to accompany our cosplayers and waited for the announcement of winners.  I finally met up with Karla and, looking around, the cosplayers seem to be chatting happily on stage, like there’s no competition going on.  Everybody’s excited.  ^_^

The 2nd runner up was Carlo Valenzuela’s Boy Bakal (who was photogenic btw…Nice job Dennis!).  The 1st runner up was Erico Calimlim’s Pag-Asa (who kicked a lot of ass during the skit!  Great job Arnel!)…

The grand champion was Ilog’s  Dante!  XD  Before I could even react to that announcement, the cosplayers near me (including Karla) literally jumped in excitement!  Naunahan pa ako ng mga contestants, di na ako nakatalon!  XP  

(pic via Ariel Atienza)

You know that moment when you see the winners being congratulated and you realize you have no camera with you (and you’re also onstage?)?  Yeah that….  >.<  But seeing the bright lights and their backs kinda burned an image in my head… And the other cosplayers (entries) were genuinely happy for them. It was a beautiful sight!  Makes me proud of their team,  too (Point Zero pride after all)!

Frederick (Dante)  and Daphne (Mina)  did an awesome job with the skit.  You can feel the audience hold their breath while watching them do (almost did) what PASIG fans were wishing for years! (and Ow!  That pan hurts!) XD

I wasn’t able to congratulate them right away (including hubby).  When hubby was finally alone, I gave him a hug from a proud wifey.  \^w^/

Backstage, people were taking pictures…And were looking quite happy.  ^_^

Looking back (almost a week later), with the cosplayers still talking about last saturday’s events, I can see they really enjoyed the journey  (both creators and cosplayers).

Speaking as a member of the local indie community (and an IKM admin), I saw a different side of the indie creators who participated in this event. Kit mentioned a long time ago that they were trying to build relationships through this event…

Chard supported his cosplayers through the whole thing non-stop, while Paulo (Visdei) and Rawrr (Bruho Barbero) cosplayed for the love of komiks (and to support their fellow indie creators)…

As for me, Karla, Joshua and FPJ…

I’d like to think I gained not just new readers, but new friends in Karla and Joshua.  And for FPJ, a new found respect as a colleague (in the comic industry) and as cosplayer.  The event introduced me to the world of these dedicated artists.  I was very fortunate to have met them through this competition.

I’m looking forward to seeing them again at the Komikon (now a few weeks away...the madness isn't over).   We’re currently working on Kanto Inc. #4 (which, I heard, Daphne and Frederick enjoyed reading!  Oh and Karla said  liked reading CP too!  :D ).

Now it’s back to work for us comic creators.  I’d like to think that GTMACC’s event was the cherry on top of the 100 Araw ng Komiks campaign for this year.  I’m not sure if we’ll be having new readers via this event (in time for KOMIKON), BUT one thing’s for certain…

We can feel the support and love. =^_____^=

Indie Cosplay!

Journal Entry #60

Been a long time allow me to babble a little longer than usual...

I mentioned a while back that we started the 100 Araw ng Komiks Campaign.  We're on the third month, but still focused on promoting komiks.  We posted videos for imaginary soundtracks for our titles, made memes, and this month, we're already posting teasers for our October project.

Then there's the GTMACCCon event.

For months now, we've been preparing for the event in October (a few weeks before Komikon).  GTMACCCon was known for supporting the local publications by promoting them through cosplay. It was a great initiative!

So I was busy with contacting the organizers, Silaya's cosplayer, making character studies to base costumes on, and making promo images.  I've always wanted somebody to cosplay any character from Cresci Prophecies...

But I didn't think of it much, until I was coordinating with Karla to cosplay Silaya, via Kit Perez (of GTMACC).  I tried to meet up with her several times before the pre-event to give her a copy of the book, but Murphy's law got in the way 3 times.  @_@

We chatted on facebook instead to talk about Silaya (who had the best costume in the book so far), her costume, and the pre-event preps.  As I saw the progress of the costume, I started to feel excited!  *___*

We started posting teasers for the event, and for the October project...

Then finally, it was saturday!  We got there early, and saw Tepai's character Visdei, cosplayed by Paulo (a fellow IKM member).  One by one the cosplayers arrived for the photoshoot, it was really cool seeing them fool around in their outfits.

We met Dante (another part of the PointZero roster), and Hubby looked really happy with the costume outcome, and the sword looked awesome!

I was still waiting for Karla, until a girl in gown rushed to the booth and talked to me.  I was caught off guard, then I realized it was Silaya! Her shawl was flowing behind her as she rushed off to fix her hair for the shoot! XD

She was so nice in person!  I gave her Idris's feather for props too!  Tepai mentioned there was a goddess amongst us!

While the shoot was going on, we were at our respective booths having fun. I chatted with Ray (of Revel studios), and Ladystorykeeper. I got some good feedback for Vol.3, which indicated that I'm going the right direction for the pairings.

The most fun we had was with Visdei's wig.  Almost all the IKM guys present wore the wig, including Hubby!  XD  We were all laughing as the guys tried it out!  XD  Dante (Cosplayed by Frederick) and Mina (in her casual clothes.. :D, they're also PASIG fans btw),  was game with our own photoshoot with hubby... Too bad you missed it if you weren't there.  :P

After the shoot, I gave Karla copies of the book, so she could finally get to know Silaya.  She also brought me some great news for October's catwalk/cosplay competition. I got even more giddy!  XD

She also mentioned that some people got curious about the character she was portraying, and the comic the character was from.  I think that was why GTMACC did this cosplay initiative in the first place, and from what Karla told me, it seems to be working... :D

It was a great day.  We can't wait for the day our characters would do the catwalk and skits.  Thanks to Kit and Andrew for the opportunity to see our characters in the flesh! 

In the meantime, I'll still be working with the cosplayers for the GTMACCCon 2 event, Volume 4 production, and komikon preps.  

Things like these, makes all the effort worth it!

Then came Lakan and Makisig...

Journal Entry #59
July 23, 2012

Good Morning,

It's never too late to start. 
All you have to do is take the first step.
There's a difference between "those who can" and "those who did".

Well first of all you can call me giosdesk. I'm a comic artist. Preferably you saw me on Facebook on the IKM group, or at the Indieket Event at table I12. It's my first time to join such event and to be a participant/seller. The experience is awesome, and very fruitful. I'm a graphic artist by day and a vigilante at night roaming the streets of imagination and what not. Scourging the underbelly of the subconscious and tinkling with the machinery of creativity. Unless the baby cries and needs to change the diaper.

I always wanted to be a cartoonist by profession but theres this thing called RESPONSIBILITY and yours truly needs to man up and take it. Well I think all of us wanted that, doing what you LOVE thingy, but here in our country thats kinda, NOT THE IDEAL CHOICE. I've been doing comics strip waaaay back in high school, then college, I was a regular cartoonist for the Advocate (FEU student publication). Then graduation, I still do strips but for personal satisfaction. But got married, had kids, then stopped. Comics ended right there.

But the passion is still there, it's my forte, it's what I'm good at. I don't want to fail my heroes, Rene Aranda, Jess Abrera, Nonoy Marcelo (fellow Advocate and Tamaraw) and Pol Medina Jr. in strips and humor. So I did a personal project for giosdesk, since I'm now a father I wanted to share that experience, so I created Lakan at Makisig Komiks, yes thats the name of my 2 boys. I get my inspiration, ideas and motivation from them. I'm creating comics but wasn't able to commit due to work and family. I'm kinda new in the head of the family section. But I met this awesome cartoonist over at multiply, Freely (naks), we've exchanged mails and he really inspire me to work on my comics and I really like his style and humor, its like western cartoon but speaks tagalog. I finally met Freely at FCBD 2011, nice fellow. I did strips now and then, but not consistent. I tried to print copies and sold them to friends early 2012. Freely advice me to join Indieket last July which I did and here I am now.

After Indieket, I was inspired to create more comics, and was really motivated that I am able to post one-comic per day on giosdesk Wordpress. YAY! Lesson here is that, if it's your passion, do it. No one will do it for you. Quite a long story, thanks for taking the time to read. Thanks to the people I met at Indieket, to those who purchased and those who laugh, it melts me. Looking forward to meet more of you guys and MABUHAY ang PINOY KOMIKS!

July 13, 2012

Hello, buhay indie peeps!
It's me again, Dark Chapel of SSM!
Reminding everyone of the upcoming event this Saturday.
The very first grand indie komiks market, INDIEKET.

Where SSM! would be stationed at IT114 together with our brothas from another mothas, PELIGRO COMICS & MACOY.

As expected, SSM! won't be going there empty handed and if we're going down we're going down in a BLAZE OF GLORY!

Presenting the three course meal that is ....SSM!

How d'ya like dem apples?

And an encore printing of MONA #1. Now with TYPO/LIQUID FREE covers and interior pages.

The only trouble I'm having right now is being unable to purchase the proper/appropriate plastic bags for the new books. And hopefully would be able to resolve this situation later this afternoon. I'm really kinda O.C. about presenting my books bare because part of our appeal WAS the packaging so I really had to do something about this ASAP.

But the books were all done,as in KAHAPON PA!=D

So that's about it.See you this Saturday.

Buy the books and have a whale of a good time.
SSM!, over and out.

100 Araw ng Komiks: One Year Later

Journal Entry #57

It has been a year since the first day of the campaign.

It all started with an incident in Toycon 2011.  At that point, the local Komiks industry has been struggling to keep afloat for years, despite popular notions of its "demise".  A lot of professional and underground independent komiks have been continuing this artform.  A lot of influences popped up, and what's good about this is, more artists are getting interested in making their own publications.  Whether they're newbies, or pros, it doesn't matter, as long as somebody is still interested in making their own comics locally.

Ever since I got myself into making indie comics 16 years ago (you know, the first time I decided to make my own comic), I got immersed in the art of making comics.  I fell in love with the possibilities.  I was already into writing when I was in highschool, and I liked to draw.  Drawing my own stories gives me a sort of high that school plates could never give me.  It was work and play merged into one! But If you put so much effort into drawing something, and your friends somehow gets sucked into the world you created, it gives you a satisfaction that makes all the hardwork really worth it.

So after meeting comic enthusiastic college mates, after joining an indie comic group, after meeting CCCOM, after selling in a shop, after getting criticisms, after joining a big convention (getting amazed by how many of us are actually making comics),  after many KOMIKONs, after meeting the veterans of the Golden Age, komiks historians, meeting more indie artists, participating in exhibits, seeing the real komiks industry... I was already in fray.  And I loved all that creative energy!

And then we met a kid who hardly knows about Panday, or Darna....Or any local komiks title creator,  Despite the TV shows and MMFF adaptations in recent years.  It was sadness at the Komikon booth.

I was already in Indie Komiks Manila group then, and we were all trying to promote our own titles, and helping each other out in comic production.  A year before, it was National elections.  I saw my FB feed fill with campaigns for politicians.  And we're all comic enthusiasts.  Why not campaign for Komiks? So we did.

Early teasers

So many people pitched for 100 Araw ng Komiks, and one of them is the FB page which is now a year old.  It was a campaign filled with infos on the history of komiks from Komiklopedia, from various resource persons and blogs. We promoted new comic artists and new comic titles.  Many komiks enthusiasts participated.  Many responded and shared trivias and posts.  For 100 days, we campaigned for KOMIKS.  

Four months after the 100-day campaign, I shopped for a few indies (during Komikon), and introduced myself to one of the creators of Spanton as one of the admins of the 100 AnK page.  And then the guy mentioned that some of their buyers actually heard of their titles via the page posts. I was really happy to hear that we helped them promote their titles.  We actually did help them!  Wow.

It was a small victory, but a victory nonetheless.

Now a year has passed.  Were' still posting komiks related stuff on the page, now with more than a thousand likes (I have no idea if they all check it regularly).

I really don't know the extent of the campaign, or how many people it actually reached.  I don't know if we made a significant boost for the local industry (or at least for the small komiks community where I belong), but I'm really hoping the ripples of 100 days will reach far...

But it won't become waves, if we only stop at ripples.  It's time for us to build some muscle, and create the waves we've been waiting for...

Time to spread the power of Komiks Art Beybeh!

--Joanah t.c., Member of POINT ZERO, Indie Komiks Manila, and 100 Araw ng Komiks

(P.S.  Indieket is coming up on July 14th.  Preparing for that now...Salamat din sa mga gumawa ng Power of Art docus at Komiks art docus for the inspiration! Trabaho na tayo!)

Journal Entry #56 

Hi Journal

Ako si Francis Martelino, yung gumawa ng "HOPE"," Hotdog Prince" at " Ano ang gagawin mo sa 24 oras na natitira bago gumunaw ang mundo?" Ako rin ung isa sa mga founder ng KOMIKULT. Heto na last day na ng pasahan ng requirements para makapasok sa Indieket. Hindi pa rin ako mapakali hanggat sa makareceive ako ng email na nagsasabing talagang pasok na ang KOMIKULT sa Indieket. Sana makapasok kami para makastart ng magpromote ng komiks kasi isa un sa mga pinakamasayang part ng pagkokomiks.

Gusto ko lang i-share sa inyo yung 1st run ng KOMIKULT sa Komikon. Sobrang saya ng experience kasi sa wakas mababasa na ng mga tao yung storya na gawa mo. Hindi ko akalaing magiging ganun kasuccessful ang una naming try. Bukod sa ndi kami nakapaghanda ng maige, puro last minute ung mga ginawa namin preparations including ung komiks. Andami ring setback. Biglang nasira ung printer, nasira ung photocopy machine ng paborito naming xeroxan, nagkulang ng pamasahe pampunta sa mga group meeting at marami pang iba. Kaya rin siguro ako tuwang tuwa nun kasi pagkatapos ng lahat ng pinagdaanan namin ay nagbunga anman ang aming paghihirap. Bilang baguhang grupo, starstruck kami sa mga nakita naming favorite komiks writers/artists. Ang galing lang e, isang araw binabasa mo gawa nila at nangangarap kang maging kagaya nila isang araw, tapos ngayon after ilang years, pareho na kayo ng ginagawa. Tandang tanda ko pa, umaga nung komikon. Nagaayos na kami ng table ng bigla naming namalayan na na katapat na booth pala namin ung mga idol namin mula sa Culture Crash. Grabe lang, akala ko lalangawin yung booth namin dahil natapat kami sa kanila pero buti naman hinde. :D Nandun din pala si Jinri Park. Wala lang.  Sumali din kami dun sa komiks creations contest pero ndi kami nanalo. Sana merong copy na binebenta ung mga winners ng contest para mabasa ko gawa nila. Natapos ang aming komikon experience sa Jollibee kung san namin ginastos ang lahat ng kinita namin.(Bukod sa komiks)

Hindi pa dun nagtatapos yung saya ng Komikon experience. Pagkatapos nun, marami kameng nakuhang feedback mula sa mga bumili ng komiks namin. Sobrang nakakagaan lang sa loob na ma nakaappreciate ng gawa mo at ndi nagatubiling sabihin sayo yun. Malaking bagay yun samin bilang mga komiks artist. O baka ako lang kasi first time ko. Hahaha. Hindi lang namin alam, na baka yun na yung last naming Komikon. Dahil ilang linggo lang pagkatapos nun sinorpresa kami ng INDIEKET. Ang ROYAL RUMBLE sa WRESTLEMANIA ng Komikon. Nung una, sabi ko sa sarili, parang imposible na talaga makapagkomikon ulit. Top 10 sa sales ang kelangan at wala kami ganun karaming time para makagawa ng bagong komiks. Pero sabi nga nila "Kung gusto may paraan, kung ayaw ay laging meron palusot." Napagtanto ko rin na maganda rin na may event na talagang pang indie komiks lang. Spotlight sa mga artist na suki sa mga xeroxan. Hula ko balang araw magiging kasinlaking event nito ung Komikon. Kung sino man nakaisip ng idea na ito ay talagang dapat bigyan ng standing ovation.

Tatapusin ko ang entry ko para pasalamatan ang Komikon at yung mga bumili ng komiks namin. Seryoso, sino bang matinong tao ang bibili ng komiks tungkol sa isang hotdog na naglalakad sa panahon ng kastila? Salamat talaga! Sana rin dumaan kayo sa booth namin kung sakaling makapasok kami ng Indieket. Tapos Komikon hopefully. :D 

-Francis Martelino, salarin sa paggawa ng HOPE, Hotdog Prince, at Ano ang gagawin mo sa 24 oras na natitira bago gumunaw ang mundo?( from KOMIKULT)
