Reflections and resolutions

December 23, 2014News

Going through crazy Comicfestathon made me re-evaluate what I was trying to achieve with my art. Are the expenses associated with fests “worth it”? Thinking about it, I only started doing festivals because people told me that’s how I should promote my work. But if I examine my own behavior, the primary way I discover … Read More

So you want to table at a festival….part 1

November 30, 2014Tutorial

Since I’ve been exhibiting at festivals for four years (about 14 festivals total), I thought I should do a post giving pointers to people who are thinking of doing the whole festival circuit. Not that I’m the authority on this subjects, but there has to be some valuable lesson hidden in my experiences. So first … Read More

Winter cleaning

November 15, 2014News

With my sister leaving New York in a few weeks, I’ve “inherited” a lot of stuff. A lot of stuff I don’t want. Combine that with the fact I also own useless things, I had a serious need to unload a lot of crap. Today, I went to Best Buy to recycle a couple of … Read More

Crazy Comicfestathon is over

November 8, 2014News

I’m officially done with festivals for 2014, but more importantly, I’ve survived “Crazy Comicfestathon”. Crazy Comicfestathon is what I decided to call the three festivals I’ve gone to in one month, and let met tell you something: I’ll never do that again. But actually, my fall 2014 festival lineup should also include the New York … Read More

Locust Moon report

October 27, 2014Exhibitions

Here’s the report of the fest… I wonder why I do these after each festivals? Is it even necessary? No point questioning it now. Here goes my story of this past Saturday. Woke up bright and early at 5:00 am and rode the subway to get to Penn Station. This was my first time riding … Read More

APE 2014 aftermath

October 16, 2014News

APE came and went, thanks to everyone who came by the table. I was thinking a lot while in San Francisco. Mostly thinking about money and goals. Whenever I go to festivals, I’m forced to think about my art-making as a business, which I don’t particularly enjoy. I should be happy that people buy my … Read More

Going to San Francisco this weekend

October 2, 2014Exhibitions, News

Going to the Alternative Press Expo once again this year. I’ll be at table 1020 alongside Alden Viguilla who I’ve managed to drag into this venture. If we don’t do well, he’s going to hate me forever, so please stop by our table 🙂 This is my second time at this festival, so hopefully I … Read More

New York Art Book Fair 2014

September 27, 2014Exhibitions

Just came back from the New York Art Book Fair. I have one word to describe the experience: oppressive. Oppressive art, oppressive crowds, oppressive music, oppressive heat, just an awful experience for me. Let me back up and say a couple of things first. First I applied for a table at the fair but didn’t … Read More
