License To Chill

April 15, 2019

Hi guys,

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. πŸ˜€

Cheers,
Vin

Silly Persons is the Prequel to Broken Chord

April 5, 2019

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. πŸ˜€

I suggest rereading Silly Persons before reading Broken Chord again. πŸ˜€

Cheers,
Vin

Broken Chord

March 20, 2019

Hi guys,

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. πŸ˜€

Your friend,
Vin

Broken Chord Work-In-Progress/Page Preview/Front and Back Cover Page

Greetings, Internetizens.

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. πŸ˜€

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. πŸ˜€

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. πŸ˜€

I also read mainstream comics, not just alternative ones. I’m not a stuck-up hipster by the way. πŸ˜€

Cheers.

Your friend,
Vin

Komiket Haul February 2019

February 16, 2019

Hello guys,

In case any of you guys are interested to find out what I got earlier from Komiket (Filipino Komiks and Art Market), here’s the obligatory photo of my Komiket haul:

Bought some local and foreign (indie and alternative) comics. I got a bunch of comics from Image and DC comics as you can see above. I found a really cool sticker which I’m going to stick to one of my electric guitars. The neon green and orange one, which says, SM North Munoz.

Overall, I bought some really interesting comics to read like sir Gerry Alanguilan’s “Dead Heart”, Mark Crilley’s “The Darker Side Of A Happy-Go-Lucky Cartoonist.” I won’t mention every comic that I got. Anyway, you can see it on the photo above.

You can also see how suave and smooth I am with the ladies as I got Tori’s number. I’m just joking, she was giving away her calling cards on her table and I got one. Alas, as I browse it now, it does not contain her number. Heheh. Her calling card is the third small card from the bottom left corner, the one with the yellow background.

At my age, (36) I’m still single but I’m not lonely. I enjoy the company of myself. I also don’t go out and hangout at bars or like any of those places. I’m a nerd and really proud of that. Although, when I was still in highschool and college, I go out and watch rock bands play live music with my friends, I go to their concerts and really support my favorite musicians and besides, I’m waiting for my family, Filipino Mafia. Making comics is keeping me busy and also, I still do some freelance illustration work once in a while.

I’m not bragging but If you were in my shoes, wouldn’t you guys consider the following things I’m going to state as achievements in your life and something to be proud of? Because of my online comics, Ellen DeGeneres invited me to be a guest on her show (I’m a big fan of her by the way). Comedy Central Asia already asked me to do some digital content for them, and I also heard that Cartoon Network Asia is also asking me to be a somewhat writer/content producer and even a storyboard artist for their digital content as well for a project that they’re going to do like in Comedy Central Asia, all because of my comics and the Filipino Mafia and to all my followers/readers of my comics. I’m really grateful to all of you, guys.

I can’t wait to begin illustrating my upcoming graphic novel, “Broken Chord” in a few weeks. I still need to wrap up all the writing part and also layout the thumbnails/plans for each comic panel and page and all those stuff I still need to do. I’ll publish it online once I’m done with it. πŸ˜€

Rest In Peace, sir Andrew Villar. Our local comics community mourns. My condolences to his family and relatives.

See you at comic book events, guys. πŸ˜€

Cheers,
Vin
