"gatilyo", a short film by chris costello

(language NSFW)

not only is chris costello a great supporter of indie comics through the sputnik comics shop he and his friends manage, but he also occasionally adapts them into short films, which he directs himself.

check out gatilyo, a five-minute piece loosely based on my own comic operasyon.

so i did six pages for the 24-hour comic book challenge... and then i had to go to bed. important family affairs needed me to be well-rested for sunday. same reason i started late on saturday.

i'll try to finish the comic some other time, i have all my notes.

right now... life comes first.

done about five pages in four hours. not bad, but not fast enough if i want to complete the challenge. i really want to cheat on backgrounds now.

dinner break.


pages two and three up.

andrew drilon is a speed-drawing monster.

nagdidilim na iilan palang kaming nagpopost. nasaan yung ibang 40+ participant?


page one is up.

wow. wala pa akong ideya kung ano'ng mangyayari. medyo alam ko na ang gusto kong ending, pero di ko pa alam kung paano makakarating doon. matatapos ko kaya yung 24 pahina?


masyadong maraming kumplikasyon pag mukhang pulis yung isa. ito nalang.


napansin ko lang na may nag-post na ng pahina kahit di pa inaanawns yung theme. (?)


houston, we have a concept.


warm-up/ self portrait:


google image search!


bakit astig ang pinoy... hm... maktan story? medyo gasgas na ata yon.

theme ba ito o obligasyong gumawa ng thesis statement? astig ang pinoy. explain.

astig ang pinoy... dahil...

anu-ano ba ang ipinagmamalaki natin? na-ekstra ang karatula ng jollibee sa glee. jeepney. basketbol. si rizal. si ninoy. sino yung nanalo sa cannes? poverty porn. hologram ek-ek sa balita. eraserheads. mall of asia.

bakit astig ang pinoy?


bakit laging patriotic ang mga theme sa contest? :/

2:03 pm

andrew drilon, john amor, tobie abad, alex cipriano, ang gagaling nyo!

24-hour comic book challenge liveblog!

1:59pm- late, late, late. 19-hour comic book challenge nalang ako. ang theme ay: "bakit astig ang pinoy?' isip-isip. basa muna kung may na-upload na yung iba.

24-hour comic book challenge!

so i'll be taking part in the 24-hour comic book event tomorrow, where a bunch of us komiks types will attempt to write and draw 24 pages of comics in 24 hours. familiar names will include:

Kajo Baldisimo
Michael David
Mel Casipit
Josel Nicolas
Freely Abrigo
Mary Ranises
Kevin Justin Ang

the pinoy komiks jack bauer gets a cash prize and his/her work published by espresso comics. the works judged as having the Best Story and Best Art will also be awarded cash. and i guess these will be consolation prizes:

i will be liveblogging throughout the whole thing, and uploading the pages as they are completed to the official website.

after the 24-hour period, contestants will be given five days to pimp promote our works, and the ten most-viewed entries make it to the shortlist. so i'll need your eyeballs, people.

the philippine 24-hour comic book challenge begins tomorrow at 9am!
