again. di ko agad sya na-gets. haha! :) i find it kinda tibak-ish, i better not understand it more. haha

masyadong akong na-fascinate sa style. :D


darn. i forgot to have my Operasyon signed. :)

mcoy said...

leroy, dalhin mo sa october komikon, pipirmahan ko. mmmmm pwede ko bang matanong kung aling bahagi yung mahirap intidihin? para sana sa susunod mas maayos na yung gagawin ko.

tungkol sa tibak, may nakita akong documentary sa youtube tungkol sa mga aktibista. yun ba yung tinutukoy mo?

leroy said...

yay! :D yep, i'll bring it. :)

no, don't change your style. asteeg nga,eh. yung ung gusto ko,eh. yung tipong bibilhin mo dahil di mo agad ma-gets kaya kailangan mong magkaron ng sariling copy para mabasa mo pa sya ng matagalan. haha. :D
it's maayos naman.


yeah, tibak = aktibista. pero nagevolve na yung meaning ata nya. haha. iba na yung mga tibak sa peyups. :)

this copy of "ang maskot" is realy entertaining! nice work on OPerasyon dude!! thanks for your time at the MCC..nakalimutan ko nga lng mag pa sign ng copy!! hehe

mcoy said...

salamat gilbert! dalhin mo lang yan sa october, pipirmahan ko hehe

mcoy said...

leroy,

don't worry, i probably couldn't change my style if i wanted to :D

it's just that as the guy actually making the comic, it sometimes feels like i know the story too closely, so i might have a few blind spots where the reader is left wondering what's going on. this coupled with the fact that i try to use as little expository dialogue as possible, i sometimes worry that i'm making things TOO hard for the reader. (i do like things a bit challenging, though)

leroy said...

i do not know what to say. haha

di naman para sa amin dapat ang work nyo. kapag ganun ang mentality, may pressure at magkakaroon ng commercial value ang work nyo which is a big no-no. dapat selfish, never mind the readers. haha. it's not about "i love it" or "i hate it" inputs.

but then, it's just me. wala naman akong alam sa paggawa ng komiks. haha. :)

basta, you got a stalker here. lol!

Hi Sir! Ako yung kumag na nagpapirma at bumili ng sabay ng Ang Maskot at Operasyon... grabe ganda nila...
napaka-innovative ng story line niyo Sir... clearly the art conveys to much message... me di lang ako na-gets... pwede pake-explain... yung tungkol dun sa ibon na nakita ni Maskot... pano yun nakaapekto sa desisyon niyang mag-resign... at ano na nga bang nangyari kay Maskot pagkatapos nun? Pls help me.. ito kasi yung ginamit ko for literature appreciation class namin... thnx...

leroy said...

@Jayson

parang ganito yan,eh.
Sabi sa Spongebob Squarepants

"LET GO of the things that kills you, and keep what keeps you BREATHING."

basta, parang ganun. haha.

digs? :D

mcoy said...

jayson,

whoa, lit appreciation, talaga? sigurado ka? baka magalit sa akin yung professor mo, hehe

sa totoo lang, yung rooftop scene ng maskot ay sadyang "open to interpretation"... pati sa akin. it was a series of images that felt right to me as i was drawing them, and that's all there is to it. i wasn't really trying to present an explanation for anything--at least not consciously. so you can tell your teacher whatever comes to mind, 'cause that's what the author intended. :)

as for the fate of the maskot... we don't know for sure but the i consider the heart-shaped patch (the girl's father put it there, mind you) a good sign.

leroy,

mayroong art na ginagawa para sa sarili, mayroong art ni ginagawa para sa iba.

speaking for myself, nagsusulat din ako para sa mambabasa. parang sa pakikipag-usap, kailangan ding isispin yung kausap mo, dahil baka hindi kayo magkaintindihan.

leroy said...

oooh. yay! thanks for enlightenment. asteeg. :)

pano yung mga art na ginagawa sa sarili pero sadyang patok sa iba? haha.

mcoy said...

leroy,

opinion, opinion, hindi enlightenment! :)

yung art na ginagawa sa sarili pero patok sa iba, syempre mayroon din noon. pero ang karamihan ata eh, pinaghahalo yung dalwang drive, yung pure self-expression atsaka communication.

leroy said...

it's enlightenment. hehe. :D
bagong view on art. :D

ps
Good luck on Thursday, sir! :D
tuwang-tuwa yung friend ko kasi daw talagang pinaghahandaan nyo daw. hehe
