Time and Space ain't got nothin to do with it, baby!

 I have one more week before the big move to our new apartment. I also found myself a special rarity of a 3 day weekend from my "paying job". So after I caught myself up on sleep and gaming. I still had the itch to draw stuff. I'm a bit stuck on my comic books since I'm still trying to balance out the stories I'm writing. 

 But there was always something at the back of my mind that I should be learning more. That me just drawing was never gonna get me anywhere. I'd still be stuck scraping on by doing jobs that try to suck out whatever individuality you had and reduce you to a bunch of numbers. And I got scared... like most of the time when I think like that. I was scared that my work may not reach anyone at this rate. So I draw and I draw and ultimately it gets drowned out by the millions upon millions pieces of art out there. 

 Sigh... I felt helpless. So I do what I mostly do and ask the internet for help. I found some of the best TED talks to perk me up as well as an amazing documentary on comic book artists like Jack Kirby and Will Eisner. The way they and the people close to them talked about their work and their life was so amazing to me. I just realized that making my cartoons and comics are what makes me want to stay alive. I just love to make them and I should focus on that more than any despair or helplessness I see in front of me.

 Still though I need to make a bigger effort for this.. Hopefully I can get myself a gallery opening and whatnot since I work my dingy job so I can finally do what I want. It'd be a shame if I didn't put that money to use.

Anyway... here's some new artworks that may or may not make the cut for my imaginary art gallery opening nearby soon.

Bunny Doodles Collection :D

Jack Side Leap Poster :D

Kitty Fish Thug :D

 Anybody know any affordable galleries at Metro Manila? Hit me up in the comics section :D Til Next Time, Enjoy your art!

Hands Tied

Up Work Home PC Bed Repeat...

 It's just gonna get heavier people. Growing up means having to compromise some things to be able to stay alive. Must not let that get the better of me though.

 So a couple more doodles for ya'll :D

Office Goblin Doodle

Leaping Jack

Random Concept: Friendly Girl

 I swear I'll make more and work on my comics as well. It's just so tiring to work at nights since I'll be moving to a new apartment soon with my lovely girlfriend and we have some needs we have to buy.

 Any artists out there who can share their stories of struggle? Let me know in the comments. Til next time, Enjoy your art!

Post Game Indieket 2016

Another Con in the wraps...

 Never go to the con without getting enough sleep.

I know I know... The things you sacrifice just to get paid. But it really hits home when work gets in the way of stuff you love but you can't survive without getting paid for said work.

The consequences were made real yesterday at #IndieKet2016. I just got off working from 10pm to 6am. I had to finish stapling my last batch of prints before heading off to the con at around 10am. No sleep. No nap. Straight on forward.

I wanted to ask to skip work the night before but nooooooo. Apparently it's not a valid excuse to skip a day of learning how to answer a phone. *sigh* 

We got to the con late and whacked out of my mind. I couldn't focus up and kept trying not to throw up. Til my lovely partner decided we should take a nap at Starbucks. I woke up later in the afternoon and managed to sell a fairly decent amount of comics and stuff. So it wasn't a total loss.

Also huge thanks to my teammates who manned the table while I was out cold and our awesome neighbors for keeping us going. Shout out to Kuya Gio of Giosdesk and Nick the professor. 

The con itself was pretty lively with awesome features and contests. I wish I did better at the on the spot comic making contest but I was soooo out of it. Congrats to Gio and Milo for getting the cash prize :D

It wasn't as big of a turnout as the previous con since it was mainly focused on Independent Artists. However the amount of comics was still pretty awesomely staggering. Great art was everywhere even though I couldn't appreciate them all that coherently that day.

I swear by the next convention I'm gonna be more in shape for it. Thanks to all who dropped by the Eventual Empire Table and picked up my books and artworks by my team. We really appreciate it. 

Til next time. Enjoy your comics!
