I registered a new domain name for this new project of mine–an animated Internet series, www.primordialcartoons.com.
Here’s the character sheet/sketch of the main protagonists of the animated Internet series I’m going to begin to make come July 2019. I decided to draw how the characters would look like today, that’s if, if I’m not going to revise their look. Their names are Death and Loriz. In my 36 years of living (I’m currently 36) I haven’t seen a cartoon series which Death is the main protagonist so this is what I’m going to make. If there is, I’m just not aware of it. I’m a silly old fart who still loves comics and cartoons. I am proud to be a geek, nerd, dork or whatever you guys wanna call it even before being like those I’ve mentioned weren’t considered “cool” a few decades ago, unlike nowadays.
I’m doing this because a really wealthy person (producer) is willing to invest on me–on my work and wants me to produce a cartoon series which will be shown in Cartoon Network Asia. The guy I’m talking about is a member of Filipino Mafia and is a good friend of mine and I am truly grateful to him.
I’m going to animate this animated Internet series using traditional methods and I’m going to render frame by frame using pencils and ink only. Guys, don’t expect me to produce like the works of sir Hayao Miyazaki, the screenwriting/film directing skills of sir Katsuhiro Otomo, sir Matt Groening, sir Pendleton Ward and countless other cartoonists which I am a fan of. But, I will try my best to make it funny and entertaining.
Once the big day arrives and I start doing this on Cartoon Network Asia, my role will just be a storyboard artist/director and content producer. I’m going to give them ideas to work on and I’m going to need a full production team for this–animators, in-betweeners, clean-up artists, colorists, background artists, voice actors/actresses etc.. Or, if it’s going to be done digitally, then I’m going to need digital animators/artists. This is the reason why I’m going to take a break making comics–to review my poor animation skills. Ha Ha. I’m going to base the tone of the animation for Cartoon Network Asia off of my online comics: www.killerkamotekomiks.com, which is what Cartoon Network Asia would like me to do.
The first episode will come out in July or August this year and then, the second episode will come out early next year, 2020. After I make the first episode, I’m going to take a hiatus and the same thing goes for the comics–I’ll take a break for a while but resume doing it sometime in the future. Starting next year, new episodes will come out every 3 months or so and each episode will last a minute or so. 😊👍
Also, here’s the short intro animation for each episode. Special thanks to my “comics people” friends/acquiantances’ Chocnut_San (Jermaine) and Alex Sevilla for helping me pick the background theme song for the intro animation which you can use from a royalty free music Youtube Channel, Audio Library.

Illustrated something today.
I’m cooking something up and I’m going to publish another short, five page story here on my website, sometime in July this year as a preview for the short novel or graphic novel that I’m going to put out early next year, entitled, “Funny-Cher and Other Short Stories” unless I change my mind or come up with another different title. It’s a parody about the female American singer, “Cher” and Marvel’s Punisher. I combined both words as a pun for the title. 😀

Hey there friends,
I just wanted to tell you guys that my graphic novel “Silly Persons” is the prequel to my short novel, “Broken Chord”. Right after the ending of “Silly Persons”, the story of “Broken Chord” happened after a few years. The main guy in “Silly Persons” is also the same guy in “Broken Chord” who murdered his band-mate. After he killed his girl in “Silly Persons”, he found a wife in “Broken Chord” and they had a son, which is the little guy who churned out trumpet sounds and ruined the main guy’s moment at the ending. 😀

I just published my short novel, “Broken Chord”, online. You can read it here: Broken Chord. Or, on this blog since this issue is just pure text, except for the front and back covers–the only illustrations I’ve made for this issue, I’ve decided to post it here as well. You can read it below. The next short novel or “major” comic book I’m going to make will come out early next year, 2020. But, I’m going to make some gag-a-week comic strips again this year, 2019–something light for me to do, after I take a couple of months of break to keep up with the company’s who want to give me a job like Comedy Central Asia and Cartoon Network Asia. I’ll still post some illustrations and write something from time to time and post them here.
That’s it for now. Cheers. 😀

Broken Chord Work-In-Progress/Page Preview/Front and Back Cover Page
I hope you guys are having a swell day today. I’m done with the front and back cover of, “Broken Chord”. I’ve decided to just make this issue of Killer Kamote Komiks with only pure text and words–a short novel, the only illustrations will be the front and back cover. This is going to be a tragic comedy story again, my usual theme for my work.
I’m slowly transitioning to putting out content with only text, words and writings as the people who would like to give me a job prefers that, so that they’ll be interested to work with me. Albeit, I’ll still draw from time to time and post it online, though. 😀
I also won’t be able to go and sell this at Summer Komikon but I’ll attend and launch selling this at Komikon Indieket this coming August 2019. I’m going to wait for the registration to open for that event and pay the fee to secure myself a table. See you guys at the event, to my friends, acquaintances and to my followers.
The only preview I’m going to give you guys are the following pages below. Anyways, I’m going to publish this online before this month ends. Now, I need to gather my thoughts and ideas and write. Write. Write. 😀
After I make this one, I’m still going to make comics this year but only the ones like I’ve made in the past like these following issues, Art of Silliness, Inktober 2018 and JeST DO IT. Something light for me to do, so gag-a-week comic strips will do, I guess.
Also, I dedicate this issue of Killer Kamote Komiks to the late and great Stan Lee, “THE MAN”, who made me a comic book fan boy since I was a kid, which eventually led me to create my own comics since 2014. I do hope the silliness and writing part of my work always compensates my crappy illustrations. I consider making my own comics, the best thing that ever happened in my entire life, so far. My crowning glory. My pride and joy. 😀
I also read mainstream comics, not just alternative ones. I’m not a stuck-up hipster by the way. 😀
