Blast From The Past

I started conceptualizing the Zaturnnah sequel way before the musical or the movie ever turned up. And, as I had mentioned in a previous post, putting a sequel together isn't easy especially when it wasn't in the grand plan to begin with. But here I am, halfway through the 2nd act of the sequel script, and I'm making one delicious discovery after another.

Going through my old files, I found this (click on the image to enlarge):



It's part of a scene between Ada and Lester, and it's going to be in the sequel. I drew this sometime during the first quarter of 2005--nearly three years ago!--just before I was accepted at Summit Publishing. While it's tempting to ram my head through a brick wall for being too slow, I content myself with the thought of not rushing this story through. The sequel syndrome can be a terrible thing and, with the new knowledge I've been getting over the recent years, I'm glad I waited this long. Enough about putting a story together on impulse. It's time to grow up.

Carv,

I'm very impressed by your drawing skills, as well as your story-telling. How did a Marketing major acquired those skills ? maybe you can share us your secret ?
I thought all along you were on the Humanities/Arts discipline.
After the sequel, do you have plans on doing some serious stuff ?like the death of Mrs. Juan Luna from her jealous husband ? This need some story-telling to young Filipinos...

Hi Carv,

It's me.. I like it a lot. Sa totoo lang, ang sarap sa mata ng mga drawings mo, khit na walang kulay, parang buhay na buhay ung mga characters and ung eksena. I can't wait for the sequel...
Alam mo bang depressed ako ngaun, at nung nkita ko ung yan, lalo lang akong na-depress... But mine was a different story. Hehehe. Ingat po

me!!

Auggie... Ay, maraming salamat. :-) I was already drawing as a kid, but I didn't want to take up Fine Arts in college. My thinking was that drawing was a hobby, and I didn't want it to be part of my profession. However, Fate took me elsewhere. :-)

I want to do different stories in the future, and something historical is not a far-fetched idea. Research lang naman ang kalaban diyan, eh.

barbra s. and balbona... Kamukha ni Erap? Kahawig ni Gerry? Nakows, universal ang appeal ni Lester!

angelo... Sabado night, most probably. :-)

me!... Nakakagulat naman 'yang comment mo. :-( I hope you feel better soon. Ingat lagi!

Carl,

Type ko ang hairdo ni Ada sa illustration na ito! Parang Jackie O by way of bading beauty parlor! :)

Also, the man looks like one of my exes. Bad omen, di ba? Ahahaha! :)
