Vin @ Komiket Feb 2019

November 19, 2018

Hiya!

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. πŸ˜€

“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! πŸ˜€

Cheers.

Komiket October 2018

October 14, 2018

Ahoy there mates,

I went to Komiket yesterday, October 13, 2018. I was so early that the event hasn’t even started when I got there, around quarter to ten in the morning. Took these photos right when I entered the venue and when the doors were opened.

I dropped by at the table of my friends and said my hello’s to them again. Afterwards, I decided to roam around and sniffed and inhaled the air all these people breathed. Just kidding though. And then, I bought some comics and you can see my Komiket October 2018 haul:

I saw a few old copies of Sandman comics by sir Neil Gaiman and also some old works of sir Warren Ellis for only a hundred Philippine pesos each for some, and some, for only a hundred and fifty pesos each, so I immediately bought them as I’m a big fan of the both of them. Bought some other comics as well and then some local comics. I wasn’t able to find some of the local comic creators that I wanted to see so that I could buy their comics and merch as I went so early. They probably got there at a later time so probably next time, I guess. Will promise to buy more local comics next time as well. Most of them were just not around when I got in the venue like I’ve mentioned.

I’m pretty much excited to make my upcoming comic book/picture book, “JeST DO IT come November. Tomorrow and for the last remaining weeks of October, I’ll continue my weekly silly Inktober 2018 entries. After I make “JeST DO IT”, I think I’ll try to stay away from social media for as long as I can as I badly need a break from it. Probably a day or two. Just kidding. Most probably at least a month? I’ll take a rest from all the liking I make on all people on my friends lists on social media websites. Kidding aside, I just want to take a break from social media for a while. I’ll also start selling “JeST DO IT” in February of 2019 at Komiket. In case you guys are wondering what Komiket means, I think it means, comics and art market.

While I’m taking a break from social media, I’ll focus on my hobbies and passions -reading, writing, drawing, playing music and watching sports. Now that I mentioned sports, watching a daily sports show, shown here in Manila every night completes my day. Not to mention, the lady sportscasters are my kind of girls. Haha. πŸ˜€

Some people say I brag a lot. That’s not true. I’m just probably trying to be funny in some way but I assure you, I don’t think so highly of myself and I don’t brag. I’m also not some stuck-up hipster who only caters to other hipsters as well. I’m a friendly guy and I’m just like any normal millennial out there. Albeit, I try to be different most of the time, because, why not, right? πŸ˜€

I’ve come so far since the inception of Killer Kamote Komiks in 2014, I’ve already put out twenty-four silly issues for four years (2014-2018) and my upcoming comic book/picture book, “JeST DO IT” will be the twenty-fifth issue. To all the people who reads and follows my work, I wish everyone of you lots of loving, all your lives and my upcoming comic book/picture book, “JeST DO IT” is dedicated to each and everyone of you. πŸ˜€

Cheers.

Your friend,
Vin

Vin @ Komikon Indieket 2018

August 6, 2018

Hiya!

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. πŸ˜€

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!

Cheers,
Vin

Komikon Indieket 2018

Date originally posted this blog entry: July 2, 2018
UPDATE: July 23, 2018 – Additional info at the very bottom of this blog post.

Hi,

It’s still more than a month away but I decided to make an ad for Komikon Indieket 2018 as I’m going to attend as a comic creator and sell my comic books on that event. You can see it at the bottom of this blog post. If I’m not mistaken, there are other comic cons that’s going to happen before Indieket in August 2018, one of them is Asia Pop Comic Con. I won’t attend those cons as they’re, too far away from where I live. Perhaps someday I’ll be able to, even to comic cons in other countries, I hope so, someday. Although, going to comic cons in other countries is surely going to be expensive, the fare alone will definitely cost a lot and the other expenses you need to shoulder for the duration of the event so that’s going to be another factor if I’m going to consider that notion.

I’d like to thank sir Reno Maniquis and his printing services shop, Creative Trio Design for printing my comic books. Now, if I only have a publisher and a distributor for my work, I’ll be able to sell my comics around the globe with ease. πŸ˜€

If you’re a fan of my work, you can support me by buying my comics and other merchandise. And also, I don’t think so highly of myself but please don’t ask me to take a selfie with you at cons because I’m a bit timid whenever someone takes a photo of me while I’m surrounded by a lot of people. πŸ˜€

Anyway, enough said. Here’s the ad.

UPDATE (July 23, 2018)
Went to the exhibitor’s meeting last Saturday, July 21, 2018 and got my ID for the event, ingress and egress form and other related documents and papers.

Here’s the floor plan to guide you where you can locate me on the said event. I’ll be at table I12.

Trinity Con 2018

June 30, 2018

Hey, guys,

I went to Trinity Con a while ago. The photo below was around 1PM, when I finally got to the venue. There were lots of toys, comics, posters, prints and other related items for sale. It was a really fun event.

The photos below are my haul from the con.

I only bought a few comics, some art prints, a pocketbook and a toy action figure. You can see them clockwise on the photo below. A pre-loved Seinfeld pocketbook which contains jokes from Jerry Seinfeld himself. I’m not sure but as of this writing as I haven’t read it yet but that’s what I think from skimming the book at the event earlier. Komiks Cum Laude, an anthology of comic creators from Komiket’s Comic workshop. I already have this but sir Mark Navarro gave it to me when I bought “The Sweeter Side of R. Crumb” (the comic below) from him. It’s full of illustrations by R. Crumb so I grabbed it. “Arangkada” by sir Lyndon Gregorio, it’s his 20th book. My kid brother buys his comics a few decades ago and I would borrow them and read them as well. I’m a big fan of him and I got nothing but respect to all my fellow comic creators. I think sir Lyndon has been making comics for a few decades now, not that sure though but I hope I can continue working on my own comics like him until I’m really old. And lastly, “Salamat, Ming-Ming” by BK Pena and I also pre-ordered Gioseppe Custodio’s latest comic, “Robber Band”, which I’m going to get from him on Indieket this August 2018.

I got this Aquaman print from sir Jon Zamar and the Batman print from Gioseppe custodio. I’ll put them on the wall on my man-cave together with the other art prints that I got from comic cons in the past.

Batman, Superman and WonderWoman print from BK Pena.

I also got this “Rambo” toy. I think the only person who can beat Chuck Norris is Rambo, aside from Bruce Lee. πŸ˜€ I wanted to buy more toys for myself but I couldn’t find any toys cooler than this guy, Rambo, or other toys similar to this kind of toy! πŸ˜€

The rest of the photos below are toy/figure displays from the event.






Thanks for your time reading this, guys!

Cheers.
