New year resolutions

January 4, 2016News

Kind of late topic to post about, but here goes. Projects Last year, I completed two projects: the Carboniferous book and the Creatures of the Deep poster. Unfortunately / fortunately, I got more graphic design jobs, which translated to less free time to work on personal stuff. This year, the big priority is to finish … Read More

The CAKE report

June 9, 2015News

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 … Read More

Learning and transitioning

February 27, 2015News

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 … Read More

CAKE and updates on projects

January 26, 2015News

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 … Read More

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

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

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
