COMIC ARTISTS does not like to hear...

COMIC ARTISTS does not like to hear #1: Uy ganda ng komiks mo, may free komiks ba ako? Pinagpupuyatan ang komiks, binabayaran ang pa print, tapos at the end of it libre lang pala gusto ng mga tao?

COMIC ARTISTS does not like to hear #2: Pre ang mahal naman ng komiks mo, dapat sampung piso lang yan eh. (sampung piso? Lapis ko pa lang yata yun eh, wala pang drawing. Bumili na lang kaya siya ng lapit at basahin ang storya sa lapis. No. 1, 2 o 3, hb, 2b o kung anumang lapis yan. Baka mas sulit sa komiks eh.)


COMIC ARTISTS does not like to hear #3 Wow! did you say you are a comic book artist? So what cartoons on TV are you working on right now? Sa Disney ka ba nagaanimate? This actually happens to me most of the time. No joke!

COMIC ARTIST does not like to hear#4 While sketching, Are you drawing spidey? where is the leg? No backgound? No webbing??? "like the word 'sketching' is in the past tense"

COMIC ARTISTS does not like to here #5 (a few years ago) Stop drawing! There is no money in art. Stop littering the place (now, same person) Wow! I knew you'll make it. You are a great artist , I had a feeling... bla bla bla... as if i had amnesia.

great post..i hope those people will be able to read this..kasi tlaga feeling ng tao minsan wla lng yung sinasabi nila but nkakainis na..

#1: gusto pa free?? eh pinaghihirapan kaya yun..wla ng free ngaun noh lalo na pagmaganda..
#2: sampung piso?? and hirap kaya gawin nun tapos worth sampung piso lng for that person..ang kapal nman..
#3: so international lng ba ang maganda??..palibhasa wla silang alam..i'm not an avid fan of comics myself but rather than saying those, why not take a look at the works and see first how it is to appreciate..
#4: eh, sketching pa nga eh..duh?!

i so agree with these, nakakainis tlaga tong mga statements na to..:)

COMIC ARTISTS does not like to here #6: "This character is a rip-off of super hero ganito at kay ganun." This one happens to me during an event. Akala nya siguro hindi naka upo duon ang creator.

stampychan said...

Yes sir I totally agree with all you listed. Padagdag na rin sa listahan: "Oy, patapos na rin naman ang event, wala bang discount diyan?" Mismong sa mga organizers pa namin narinig 'to. Dun ko na-discover, hindi nga nanghihingi ng libre, binabarat naman ung komiks mo, ano yon? isda sa Palengke? >.<

He.he. Nice list Gilbert.... siguro gagawa din ako ng list for my blog. Pero basically baka ulitin ko lang sinabi mo kasi eksakto lahat e.

Ed said...

We sure get these all the time. Nakakabingi minsan. Parang ayaw ko rin sagutin. Parang gusto kong sabihin "isipin mo muna tanong mo kung tama bago mo itanong sa 'kin."

Kaya dapat sagot natin "gumuguhit ako ng babasahing KOMIKS. alam ko alam mo yun. Pag di mo alam yun, wag ka na magdagdag ng tanong." Hehehe

It is so sad that we hear that often. Sa sarili pa nating bansa...tsk tsk tsk

Heubert Khan Michael said...

uy, ngyon ko lang to nabasa ah.... hehehe. Ganda sarge! However....

With due respect to woahthatsdeep, I as an artist, would never add that to the list of things I 'd never want to hear. I am forever indebted to the artists who came before me (Gilbert Monsanto included) for selflessly teaching me what they know. I wouldn't be where I am now, and where I'd be soon, if it weren't for these people who were nice enough to listen when I asked if they could teach me how to draw better. Infact, I'm still being mentored by 2 of today's comic superstars, Philip Tan and Carlo Pagulayan. And I never asked for it. But even if I did, I'm sure they would still be nice enough to hear me out and teach me a thing or two.

monsanto said...

Tama ka Heubs, kailangan talaga magpaturo kung paano magdraw. :) I have my own set of list. all the list of the readers and who left a comment are their own.

I'll write more about that soon and more funny lists.

RapidBlade said...
