Congratulations, you're a Throne! A member of the
third highest choir, you have the dubious
distniction of existing in the realm where the
emenations from God begin to take material
form. Thus, you are the strangest-looking of
God's servants, and are described as a giant
wheel with many eyes. This may be more of a
reference to your primary function, however,
which is to carry justice and the essence of
God Himself to the Earth and through the
Heavens, than an accurate reflection of your
appearance. More than any other angel, you are
humble, patient and just- attributes required
of one who bears God and His justice as a
chariot bears its rider.

What Order of Angel Are You?

Blast from the past (Kick Fighter 2) 1995

I got these via email, old images of my work on this local publishing company that made a parody of Street Fighter. Thanks OJ Arrieta for scanning and sending them to me.

I realized that by this time, the issue number was 126. So, that was 4 pages for every issue times 126. That's like 504 pages of work.

This title lasted another more year before they decided to close shop.

Kyle Jacob had a lot of fun :)

Since this is my second time to go there, I am more trilled to witness a lot of my son's first experiences there like his first plane and boat ride, taking his first plunge into the swimming pool and the beach. He especially enjoyed playing on the fine white sands of Boracay. My wife and I enjoyed snorkling :) I usually don't want to go at first, but once I am inside the water? I'd definitely make the most of it.

I haven't updated my blog for such a long time now. So many things going on left and right. Our baby got sick and we have to closely monitor his progress especially since we are scheduled to go to Boracay this week for a four day vacation. He is okay now, thankfully. I was also preparing the pages for the Demigods book 1 I am planning to release locally next year. Coloring Eros pages for Blitzworx release for their second issue, hope I could finish that soon as well. I still have a few unfinished Digmaan pages here that I have not posted yet.
I decided to stop and just enjoy the vacation. I'll just catch up with all these deadlines after our little R and R. I am excited to see my kid play on white sand :) Many firsts for Kyle.

For all those who live within metro manila. please check out the latest book from PSICOM-FANTASYA, now available at Comic Quest, Megamall.

I have some art done inside the latest issue of ADEDGE magazine, although I am not sure where it is available.

Blitzworx#1 is also out! but I think you have to buy them directly from the group, email them at

Anyway, we are off to an early morning flight to Boracay :) See yah!

Some Komikon pics :)

Image hosted by

Last Saturday, after going to Quiapo church in the morning we attend the first ever KOMIKON 2005. It was a blast to see most of our friends again and meeting new ones too. Although it's a shame Fantasya and Blitzworx was not able to release their first issue, it was still fun just to be there.

I was also able to complete the Marvel Legends toys the Sentinel series.

Here are some phots we took during the event:

That evening, we went to Eastwood City to participate in the World's Longest Buffet. It was quite a challenge to get the food you want,after our second return to the tables, there was no food and we have to wait til 9pm for them to replenish. We decided to go home. Actually we wanted to watch DOOM. but we missed our baby Kyle.

Quite a day for us on our Monthsary :)

KATKIN/SIDES crossover

Image hosted by

This was done during our stay at Whilce's studio in ballete drive. Roy Allan Martinez (wicked,wonder woman) agreed to do a crossover featuring his character, Katkin together with my chracter, Sides. Unfortunately, he was only able to finish a few pages for his part of the book. I finished mine though.

The image above is the supposed cover for that collaboration. Roy pencilled the left part of the spread while I did the right side and inked the whole thing.
