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 suggest rereading Silly Persons before reading Broken Chord again. 😀

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. 😀

I’ve decided to write something here on my blog today. I don’t know if anyone cares about this, but anyway, beginning next month up until Summer Komikon in April 2019, I’m going to take a break making comics. I will start making my next comic book after the comic event I just mentioned. I’m going to focus finding some freelance illustration/graphic design gigs during that period and also just to unwind and relax from making comics because all I ever did was to make comics for the whole year.
Watch out for the next comic book I’m going to make next year though as it’s going to be another silly one the Killer Kamote Komiks way and this time it’ll be in full comic format. I’ve made 3 issues of Killer Kamote Komiks this year (2018) and it’s getting lesser and lesser every year, unlike when I was still starting out (2014) as I put out issues frequently, every month or every other month or so before, but the recent comics that I’ve made were “better” for me as they have more pages and I think they can be called a “comic book” or a “graphic novel”, not just an “online comic” or a “webcomic”.
I’m not a lazy person as I still want to have freelance gigs from time to time. Here’s an example of one of my works before. It’s a logo design. It’s an air filter, aroma salt therapy machine named, WAVY. My client sent me her rough pencil sketch of their logo and she instructed me to turn it into digital format and also I’ve fixed and polished the overall look of it.
I accidentally deleted the file of the logo I’ve made on my hard drive so all I have left are these photos from them. You can see the logo (the blue-green word WAVY) on the actual machine below. I made that:
I made the logo and got paid for under 75 bucks USD (US Dollars) if I’m not mistaken and I think I was underpaid for that kind of work. I was also lucky to have made some concept art before and I got 400-500 (USD) for it. You can read some info and see some pencil drawings that I made about that on the following link: Science Fiction Concept Art
If I didn’t thought to make my own comics last 2014 (that’s the year I started to make comics), I would just be a full-time freelancer up to this day and I wouldn’t have met my “comics-people” friends and wouldn’t have all the people who follows my work. I consider my comics my pride and joy and my crowning glory and if the day comes that I decide to stop making comics, I know it’ll leave a deep void within me. I really hate dramas. 😀
That’s it for now. Thank you for reading! See you at Komiket in February 2019 and in other comic events next year, guys. 😀

I know it’s too early to promote my work because the event is still almost 3 months away but anyway, I’m going to attend Komiket in February 2019 as a comic creator and sell my work. If you want to support me, you can grab a copy of my comics, although you can read them for free on my online comics site: Killer Kamote Komiks
I’m just fooling around with this blog post as I’ve said, it’s almost 3 months away but here I am all set and ready for the event. It’s likely that I’m the very first out of all the exhibitors to be ready for the said event.
Here are some sample pages from my latest work, “JeST DO IT”
I felt like I’m MacGyver being silly when I invented those two. 😀
“JeST DO IT” in printed form:
I love the smell of a freshly printed comic book. I’ll also continue selling my other 2 comic books that I’ve made this year at Komiket next year, “Silly Persons” and “Berdugo“.

See you guys next year! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you reading this! 😀
