I drew something today. I’m practicing for Inktober this coming October and I am also open for commissions. Message me if you want me to draw something for you. You can find my email address at the top right sidebar of this blog. I’ll try to improve my illustrations much much better. I hope the silly writing part compensates my crappy drawings. I think, I’m more of a comic book writer than a comic book artist. 😀

Hey guys, this blog post is a personal blog post entry so if you don’t like things like that, just pay no attention and skip this blog entry and don’t read it. Who cares what I post online anyway. Haha. 😀
Yesterday, a kid cousin of mine finally tied the knot again and that made me think about my personal life. I’ve been involved with “Filipino Mafia”, they don’t do bad things though, they’re good guys. I just used the term “mafia”. They’re actually my friends since I was a lot younger and here are some of them: http://arvinvalenzuela.com/blog/2017/02/13/colored-people/.
I’m waiting for them and it’s really hard to explain our situation, with all the attachments that these guys and me have for each other regarding our situation. Although, it’s really taking them so long to finally end our situation. But eventually, these guys will come for me, sooner or later and all I want is the best for my family and close relatives. After all these years that me and my friends (Filipino mafia) have been through, I can’t just let them go. I love these guys and I still want them to come. Albeit, sometimes I wonder what if I just break out of our situation and finally live free from them. I am still alone in life at 35 years of age but I’m not lonely. Although, a significant other would be good for me. I just thought about things like these I’m talking about because a kid cousin of mine got married yesterday, like I’ve mentioned. Not only that and also the fact that I’m getting older. I’m actually doing quite well with my life right now, never been better since I decided to stop studying civil engineering and transferred to another school and took up animation instead. I suck at animation though. I’m more of a 3D modeler of environment assets and organic 3D models. Hahaha. 😀 But, right now, I’m into making my own comic books, since November of 2014, and I think I want to keep doing this until I’m really old and also work on some freelance graphic/3D and illustration gigs from time to time. I want to make people laugh via comics as I really enjoy drawing and writing. Hopefully a big publisher would publish my work sometime in the future that’s why I’m trying my best to make my comics better. I think this is my calling in life, to be a silly comic book creator. There has always been a “geek” or even a “nerd” inside of me since I was young. I loved comic books and video games ever since I was a child. I’m also a guitar geek. When I was still in highschool, I’d spend like 5-7 hours everyday trying to figure out how to play a certain song, I would also change the tuning keys of my guitar once they start to tarnish and rust and even learn how to change the pickups on my electric guitar, use different types of electric guitar effects, things like that. I also don’t go out that much. I don’t go to places where people can “gimmick”, I don’t do that. I’ve never done anything like that in my entire life.
When I stopped taking up my civil engineering degree many years ago, there were moments where I asked and told my folks if I can just become a handsome priest. I was even an altar boy, a member of Knights of the Altar when I was a kid. I wore a Sutana (those white/black clothes priests wear, which look like curtains) I’m not kidding, I really thought of that before and also if I could just join Philippine Military Academy and be a badass person or perhaps become a member of a SWAT team. Although, I was still too young and thin back then. That was when I was young, though. I grew old, and now, I’m an agnostic and sometimes I even turn to an atheist whenever religions of people annoy the hell out of me. But, I still keep in mind to be respectful to people who have their own religion.
That’s all I have to say today. I just wanted to get that out of my system. Anyway, here’s some photos that I took at my kid cousin’s nuptial yesterday. I was so early again at the venue of the event. 😀
I’ll post updates on the next comic book I’m going to make soon entitled, “JeST DO IT.”

I attended Indieket last Saturday, August 4, 2018 as a comic creator. I arrived at the venue as early as 7:01AM in the morning, to be exact. My seatmate was late for almost half of the day. 😀
Here’s my table at the event.
Komikon Indieket 2018 crowd.
My Komikon Indieket 2018 haul.
I also got this Betty Boop toy figurine. Another addition to my “hipster toys collection”. 😁
I just want to make this blog post short. I also don’t want to mention all the creators of the comic books that I bought at the event. Anyway, you can see the comic books that I got on the photos above. And also because I am writing this blog post right now on a damn mobile phone as we’re having some internet problems with my internet service provider and I can’t upload on my laptop because of that to properly make a blog post.
I definitely had a blast and I enjoyed going to the event. Thanks to all my friends, to the people who bought my stuff and to all the usual comics people that I get acquainted to at events like this. Thanks again, guys!
