The CAKE report

Just got back from Chicago last night, after a VERY delayed flight due to flight cancellation and bad weather. So, yes, as you can see, I survived my Chicago trip: I did not get lost and die in a ditch somewhere. After talking with a couple of other out-of-town exhibitors, I found out I’m the […]

Learning and transitioning

I don’t remember if I mentioned this before, but I bought a Cintiq 22HD last November. It took many months of planning and thinking to splurge $2000 on one single piece of equipment. Overall, I’m actually really happy with my purchase even though I haven’t drawn with it all that much…I think I’ve done about […]

CAKE and updates on projects

Just got confirmation today that I got into CAKE! Woohoo! I applied last year but didn’t get in. Don’t know what to expect, but at the very least I get to see Chicago…I’m sight-seeing the U.S through comic book festivals, and on that note, it’s too bad there’s no festivals around the Grand Canyon. But […]

Reflections and resolutions

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 […]

Winter cleaning

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 […]

Crazy Comicfestathon is over

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 […]

APE 2014 aftermath

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 […]

Going to San Francisco this weekend

Going to San Francisco this weekend

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 still […]

Festival and site news

I finally added some pieces to the portfolio section of my site. I added three new books to the illustration portion and updated the photos for my “Gannets” pop-up book which were too blurry. I also added a presentation to the Design section of my site. I would like to add more presentations to my […]

Going to Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend!

Going to Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend!

Yours truly is exhibiting at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF)this weekend, at table 220 with fellow “3-armed squid” member Alexandra Beguez. I hear my table is on the second floor, but apart from that it’s somewhere where I don’t where it is…I’ll figure it out when I get there. 😛 So yes, I’m taking […]
