Chef Caricatures







I had been contacted by my long FB friend to do a chef commission. I was hesitant at first as the Komikon 2012 is fast approaching, but I accepted it anyway. I really missed drawing caricatures its been a while since I last drew one. I was happy with the result as well the person who did the commission. I hope the persons I made the caricature for also loved their caricature. Looking forward for more caricatures in the future. These caricatures where done in the month of October of 2012.

Love Illustrations Revived





Just recently I was able to try out using paint tool sai, I wanted to practice making artworks digitally. You see I had always been traditional, but you can't escape change, so I did. These artworks are part of my love illustration collection sketches done last quarter of 2011. I did those drawings as a past time, and emotional diversion. At that time I was really depressed and heart broken (a bit :)) so I envisioned love couples and so I drew. A lot of people love those sketches when I post them on FB so I continued doing those sketches even though I'm already over the emotional stress.

Komikon Indieket Blog ni Mel Casipit
















Komikon Indieket. The First Komikon Grand Independent Komiks Market 2012. Held at Bayanihan Center, Pasig city last July 14, 2012.

Habang fresh pa ang alala, nais kong magblog sa event na ito. Noong malaman ko na may Indieket agad akong gumawa ng bagong issue ng Mukat yun yung issue no. 6. Balak ko kasi talagang maglabas ng bagong Issue ng Mukat sa bawat convention na pupuntahan ko. Ayun na nga, gumising ako ng maaga para event na Indie sa araw ng Hulyo 14, mga 8:00 kahit medyo late na akong natulog maaga pa rin akong nagising siguro dahil sa excitement. Dumating ako sa Bayanihan center ng mga 9:15am, dahil wala pa sila Aaron at Wan kape-kape muna ako sa Jollibee, sorry di ako mahilig sa starbucks hehe. Pagbukas ng event ng 10am kasama kong pumasok sa loob ng Bayanihan center si Kai at dumiretso kami sa table ng Neverheard Webcomics. Hindi na kami nahirapan sa paghanap ng table dahil nasa bungad lang kami kita namin ang mga pumapasok. Pagkatapos ng hi, hello kila Maika at Tepai nagset-up agad kami. Swerte paglapag ko ng Komiks may bumili agad ng isang set ng komiks ko! astig! kaya ayun pinaypay ko agad sa paninda kong komiks yung bayad nya hehe, you know? Pinakita-rin sa akin ni Tepai yung Studio Ghibli books nya galing amazon! Sobrang fan ako ng mga movie ni Hayao Miyazaki kaya sobrang tuwa ko ng masulyapan ko lang ang book na yun, puno kasi ng artwork ng movie! Spirited Away at Howl's Castle. 

Napansin ko agad na kalahati lang ng Hall ang ginamit sa indieket pero oks lang yun. Puno naman ng Komiks ang event at lahat ng dumadaan ay potential buyers. Ang dami kong nabenta! sa katunayan mas madami akong nabenta sa indieket kaysa last summer komikon. Hindo ko masyado inexpect na ganun kadami ang buyers sa indieket kaya sobrang natuwa ako.

Buong araw kaming nagkulitan sa table namin kasama sila Wan at Aaron at Kai, ewan ko ba, siguro dahil hindi na ako masyado napupuyat dahil pangumaga na ako kaya ang sigla ko nung araw na yun.

Binigyan ko si Patrick Rawr ng Baboy 2 at binigyan din naman nya ako ng original art, astig diba? Binigyan din ako ni Carlo Valenzuela ng free Pi-totoy Komiks nya at ako pa ang gagawa ng next cover ng Pi-totoy! Nabasa ko na rin yung komiks na yun pag-uwi at natuwa ako sa story ang kulet e.

Pagkatapos ng event dumiretso ang Neverheard team kasama si Rhiver at asawa este GF nya sa Chowking, bangag na si Aaron halos makatulog na sya sa upuan sa sobrang puyat. Pagkatapos naming kumain, ayun kuwentuhan ulit kami tungkol sa indieket at komiks ayuns chismisan to da max pwera kay aaron hehe. Napagkuwentuhan din namin ang balak namin na gawing compiled book na ang mga gawa namin nainspire kami ni Tepai eh.

Maraming-maraming salamat sa lahat ng duaman at bumili ng mga komiks namin. Sobrang saya ng feeling pag may bumili ulit ng komiks mo kahit nakabili na sya dahil ibibigay daw sa kapatid, o kahit na sino pa, rakenrol yun!

ToyCon 2012





Last june 15-17, ToyCon 2012 was held. Me and my comics was able to attend such great event at the Megatrade Hall 1-2. I was so happy when I received an invite to join the artist alley! I'm really honored. Thanks Sherry(of Komikon Inc.) There was really a huge crowd! A lot of cosplayer, fans and enthusiasts were present. On the table I was able to join my fellow comics artists and the Komikon Inc group, we really had a great time. We attended the event for 2 days, june 16th and 17th. Comics sales was good, we also did a lot of sketching, I made 4 fanarts,Batman, Luffy, Deja Thoris and the character from Jon Zamar's Dakila, I was also commissioned to do caricatures for some attendee's, It really makes me smile when I hear comment like "uy kamukha ko nga!" after I hand them over their caricatures, I did 4 caricatures. We were also able to get ourselves "Mighty Mugs" I am still thinking which character to paint the mug to.
The event in general was really a success. It was great that we were next to the booth of Royal, giving away free royal in can drinks which made the crowd pass by our table and have a good look at what we do. :) I'm Looking forward for next years event.
