More Komix!

For a screen printed zine project thing... Had to park my orginal comic for the project since it exceeded the new page count.

Thursday, December 6, 2012


Better Living Through Xeroxography is tomorrow! None of the stuff that I planned to release this year got done... No Baro Investigations. No ???#3. No story for QBCCC#3. No Dinoborg. I was only able to finish 10 pages of Attack Bear#1 (see poster thing above). Even the initial plan for the screen printed zine got changed, so I'm shelving the Sting/Johnny Cash song cover comic for the meantime.

Anyway, I'll still be at BLTX tomorrow... Selling reprints of ???#1 (with new-ish contents) & #2.

???#1 & ???#2
Here are some previous of stuff to come next year...

  • Some pages for ???#3

  • Some pages from Attack Bear#1

See you tomorrow!

I love pulp heroes! They are a combination of 2 things that I love... noir / crime stories & superheroes. I still listen to my Shadow radio drama recordings by Orson Welles from time to time. They are awesome! Didn't like the movie. I have yet to read the comics. Heard some good things about the Howard Chaykin run.

The Shadow knows!

I loved the Phantom strips in the Sunday paper (I think the strip is still being published in one of the local papers). Also, he was the only thing that I loved about the politically correct cartoon, Defenders of the Earth. The Phantom 2040 cartoon was pretty good, too.

The Ghost Who Walks!

My wife wasn't feeling well last weekend. So I was tasked to cook food. She told me to stop cooking eggs every meal. Thus, I was forced to open a can of Tuna Loaf...

Working on an 10-page silent comic for a silk screened zine project. This is a cover of a Sting song covered by Johnny Cash :)

I did the exact same thing to my wife a week ago. Having only 2 hours of sleep does crazy things to a person...

League Portraits (Part 1)

Finished reading The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen a few weeks ago. Only Alan Moore could pull off the idea of putting together these "heroes" of old literature. Which was probably the only thing that was interesting with Volume 1. The plot was pretty underwhelming. But it does get better with Volume 2. Some brush pen fun with the League...

Captain Nemo
Allan Quatermain

More portraits soon...

My wife & I celebrated our 10th year as a couple (1 year & 4 months of being married) a few days ago. Its been a long, tiring, fruitful, painful, joyous, lousy, exciting, blessed 10 years! Now we have a baby & he is wonderful! Thank God for you, sweetie & thanks for everything! I love you!

Attack Bear Vs. Cthulhu

A 6 or maybe 8 page zine, chronicling the first comic book adventure of Attack Bear. Weeeee! This will be for a exhibit / project thing that will hopefully push thru.

This happens very often... potato chips, I abhor thee!

Moral of the story: I should not be doing the grocery shopping.

A baby / dad / baby poop strip! The first of many...

Moral of the story: Babies are awesome. They are an awesome gift from God. Having your own baby is even more awesome. Everything they do is awesome.

Cloud Comics

That is what I'mma calling these things...

Yes, sir! Staring outside the window & drawing some funky cloud formations is very de-stressing.

Melon #2

A few more touch ups & I am done...

My contribution for Melon #2. Pick up the Happy Lockjaw peeps awesome pinup zine at the upcoming Komikon!

My Melon #1 piece...

My wife, waiting for her turn at the ultrasound machine-thing. More ballpen sketches from the sketchbook. A preview for ???#3. Still finishing up some of the strips, hopefully out by December at BLTX.

Recently finished watching the first season of The Legend of Korra. Loved it! Great animation. Engaging story. Best designed character in my opinion is Naga, the polar bear dog. Reminds me of my Lab, Argos.

Me trying to emulate David Aja...

...and failing. Really can't do drawings straight to brush pen, they end up looking sloppy. Anyway, I love the new Hawkeye series by Fraction & Aja! Simple straight forward stories & solid / creative art. Fun comics! I do not like the new costume tho...

Advance Happy New Earth!

This made my day. If I wasn't running late earlier, I would've bought this from the old man. Looking forward to the new Earth!

Ghost Rider

It has been almost a month since I last drew something with my brush pen... How I have missed you, brush pen!

Thursday, September 6, 2012

One of the many ballpen sketches I did while waiting for my wife to deliver our baby boy. Will be part of ???#3, out hopefully by December.

Back in the office after 2 weeks off of work. Still reeling from the initial blows of fatherhood, such an awesome feeling. Babies are awesome!

Say hello to mah beybeh...


Thank God for this little bundle of hairy cuteness!

Gave this to my wife as my 1st year wedding anniversary card...

This was supposed to be an 8-page mini-comic, a continuation (of sorts) of a strip I made for ???#2. Sadly, I was only able to finish 1 page. The words are the lyrics of a Weezer song, which I was thinking of singing on our wedding day... but I chickened out.

Thursday, August 16, 2012


Nah, it wasn't the actual John Locke (my favorite Lost character) / Terry O' Quinn. But the guy looked exactly like him, eye color, smile & everything.

The Window

Stared at the window the entire day. Hoping that my wife will not deliver the baby during the floods...

Monday, August 13, 2012

Going home after office, before the floods came. If you have money, clothes, food, time, etc. to spare... please help the victims of the flood!

Some practice sketches I did for Baro Investigations during office meetings. Trying to get his face right. BAH! The comic is still coming out, but it will not make it to the last Komikon of this year. Been preoccupied with thoughts of babies lately...

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

I have a new cubicle in the office & its near the window. The view is fantastic! I can enjoy looking at the calming waters of Manila Bay minus the stink. I can also see the smog over Makati...

Zombies & punk rock lady! Needed a break from work & writing scripts. Females, they are hard to draw. I want to color this. Might not have time for it though. Anyway, back to work...

Pedro Gil

A (WIP) page from a new strip that is included in the updated ???#1.

The reprints of ???#1 & #2 will not be available at this Saturday's Komikon Indieket. Sleepless nights due to my wife's pregnancy contractions have been sapping all my energy for the past few weeks. As much as I love making comics, my wife & unborn-no-name-baby-boy come first. Priorities!

2nd Printings!


Will be reprinting issues #1 & #2 of ???, some time within the week... I hope. For ???#1, I've added some of the strips that I have been posting on this blog, plus 4 or so new pages (if I can finish them). The comic is now 7% more "random"! Here is the cover, which will be printed on colored paper. Hooray!

???#1, 2nd print

Also, fixed some things for #2. Particularly the lyrics to the Bob Dylan song. My wife is now happy!

???#2, 2nd print

The comics will be available at Josel Nicolas' table (buy his stuff!) :)

Conan! The Barbarian!

I had those over-sized, black & white Marvel comics when i was 7 or something. The only thing that I liked about those comics were the gorgeous art & the pretty ladies. Never really understood why these half naked, beautiful women were throwing themselves at this oafish looking brute...

More than 2 decades later, I find out Brian Wood (he of Northlander, DMZ, Local, Demo, Channel Zero fame) was gonna be adapting the Queen of the Black Coast story along with Becky Cloonan (Wood's Demo). I am a fan of both creators... so why not give their Conan run a shot? I did. Bought the first 5 issues & i highly enjoyed it! I'm really liking this brash, innocent (to a certain degree), young version of Conan. Got bored with the first 3 issues tho, but it was mostly a setup (Cloonan's art was fantastics!). The story started getting interesting with the new arc (with very dynamic art by James Harren, Dave Stewart does some solid coloring for all the issues).

Here's a quickie fan art ...


Brush pen & some water colors... no feet (because I suck at drawing 'em), generic dungeon background. :)

Bought a very cheap Orion action figure 2 weeks ago. Sculpted based on Jack Kirbys design. It is lovely. Orion is now buddies with Homer-head.

Wednesday, June 27, 2012


Finished my initial draft of a project I'm working on with Josel Nicolas. It's a sci-fi story involving cybernetic dinosaurs, cloned movie actors, kung-fu action, explosions, fast food weirdness & some other things. There will be other comic guys that'll be joining us for the project. More details soon...

Here's a sampling of sorts, a mock-up ad by Jim Faustino!


Off to write some Baro Investigations...
