YO WAZZUP JOURNAL!
Ginawa ko lang na lively yung entry ko, eh, lively naman ako. By the way, ako po si Thomas Adobo, pwede na ring Tamasu (fb name ko), artist sa FFA Comics dito sa Cebu. I am a Gr. 8 (Second Year, according to the new school curriculum) High School student. I write my own stories (imaginative much), and illustrate them when I have the time. I was inspired to draw more since Grade School. Na-inspire ako to improve my drawings mula nung nakita ko yung mga works nina Taga-Ilog at kay Elmer Damaso sa K-Zone (doon na kasi nalalagay yung 0.5 % ng mga Indie artists eh). I was inspired to make Indies from Sir Gerry Alanguilan, most likely “Wasted”.
Okay, not so much for that. Ang current na comics work ko ay yung “Atapang Atao” na somewhat biography ni Andres Bonifacio na pinaplano kong i-release this August, either online and in print form. Yung style ng “Atapang Atao” ay may kakaunting references kay Frank Miller and the way he told 300. Hindi nga lang colored sa akin. Well, marami akong projects on my mind, but then, sa sobrang dami eh hindi ko na matapos-tapos kahit isang issue lang. May mga web comics ako na mahahanap sa blogger tulad ng “The Dark Merc” at “Before I Die…”. At baka dadami pa kung hindi marami-rami yung assignments.
I always keep all the things I make in a schedule, parang Monday, Atapang Atao, Tuseday, web comics stuff, Wednesday, assignments, Thursday to Friday, back to comics. Well, if I have some favorite characters from my large roster of imaginations, I would pick Eric Megaton, or Electro (not the Spider-Man villain), I liked him so much that I made him the main protagonist in one of my stories, “National Heroes”. Now, back to my comics stuff. I am trying to make my submission for an anthology of stories on time (January 2014 is nearby, you know). So, baka dito na lang matatapos ang entry ko. Hanggang sa susunod!
