Just want to show you guys some of my latest work. This is "the Saints" from Saturn Comics. I did the cover for #2 and on #3 took over as penciller and colorist. Still waiting for issue 4 to be released, hopefully soon :). I am now working on it's 5th issue where I will be pencilling, inking and coloring the whole book.

For more info on the books and possible orders, just email Mr. Kevin Nagel: thehaloeffect@saturncomics.net

I'll post in more images soon.

trying to assemble GALACTUS



Yesterday, my wife and I purchased several Marvel Legends toys (GALACTUS SERIES). Unfortunately, we missed two figures. Bullseye and Deathlok. The hobby sellers got to them first, ultimately they will resell them for 1000 pesos. Geesh, the original retail price is 400. Aaarghh! They can even get them toys before they hit the rack it seems. I just hate it. Forcing true collectors to buy them for a higher price.

I'll look in the internet if it would be cheaper to buy them there, we'll just let them send it to relatives in the states.

(sigh)

I'm in my country's history. In stamps!



Last night, Gerry Alanguilan called me up on my cellphone. He asked why I haven't told him about the Darna stamps? I said, what stamps? He told me then that he found out that recently some komiks images was printed in stamps. A number of great artists were included like Nestor Redondo.

Surprisingly, the cover that I did for Mango comics was one of the images. It was the Darna issue 3. Funny, considering as a kid, I used to collect stamps :) Now I am in one, actually, my work is now in one. This is a blast to be a part of my country's history. It feels more important to me than to win any award.

I know in the future there will be more artists like me to be featured there. But, for now I am so happy to see my work on a friggin stamps!

A week without my wife.

Monday to Friday, my wife Glenda is on a company conference in Boracay. Too bad, I can't be there where we had our honeymoon. I have to look after our cute 10 month old baby Kyle :) My boy misses his mom. At night, Glenda usually calls us on the cellphone and I let Kyle hear her voice. He would go NNda! NNda! that is short for Glenda. My fault actually, he hears me call her mom Glenda :) So he calls me Dada while he calls his mother by her first name. I could usually stay up later that 12midnight when she's around. Now, I have to sleep earlier with Kyle beause he wakes up at 11 and won't go back to sleep without me. That's okay, I love being with my kid. Tommorrow, she'll be back and the both of us will be happier again. And I'll be able to get back to working late :) We miss Glenda.(sigh)
