WOW

I didn't expect an overwhelming response from you guys. Thank you thank you thank you (and that means you). I will post three new pages by Monday next week, which I hope will whet your collective appetites even further. Personally, I'm happy with the way the pages came out. I believe there's a marked improvement in my drawing skills since the first book.

Still, there's this little quirk in me that my close friends are very familiar with. When I look over any of my work, then and now, I always wonder how I managed to do them in the first place. Ika nga ni Charice Pempengco, "I don't know where it comes from." I really don't. I still find myself saying, "Wow, I did that?" Which is perhaps the reason why I can't content myself with my work, an attitude I believe a lot of artists can relate to.

Story wise, Ada's beginning monologue should make clear that little theme I had posted about around June last year. Before that, I had been wrestling with something to talk about in the sequel. For over three years, I had collected script snippets and sketches and scene studies, but I couldn't find that one topic, an overriding theme that mattered in my life, that would glue them all together.

Hence... let it be about love.

But for those who may scoff at reading a comics version of your run-of-the-mill Pinoy romance novella, I don't intend to sacrifice the superheroics. There's going to be that, and I've challenged myself to make it as bitchin' as my current abilities can muster.

Again, my extreme gratitude to you all. It's back to work for me.

Speaking of work, you fine folks may want to drop by Powerbooks Greenbelt this Thursday for the launch of the latest Real Living book-- Real Home Ideas 3: 101 Home Essentials. As of this writing, I will be emceeing the event. Details can be found here.

And for those who missed out on the previous two Real Living books, the reprints are currently out in the market, so grab your copies before they run out again.

You are such a Carver, sobrang effective, because you carved in me the manner of always putting "yun lang" in the end of my comments, at paglumala pa ito, in the end of my ever statement.

Just to think in advance, sana may involvement si Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah sa next season ng Pinoy Dream Academy, dahil kung mayroon, bibilhin ko lahat ng season pass na available sa merkado, 'yun lang.

Wala lang, naisip ko lang'yun, yun lang.

God bless po, and sana, makita ko kayo in person, dahil naku, kung mangyayari 'yun.......wala, magiging masaya lang ako, magpapa-sign ng book, magpapapicture...tapos uuwi....SAKA MAGBIBIDA SA MGA KAIBIGAN KO, hahaha...ooppss... hwek hwek hwek pala, hahaha..

God bless po.
'Yun lang.. :D
Smiling face.
