Silent Sanctum Manga attended the annual KOMIKSTRIP convention heldat UP LOS BANOS.
In cooperation with UP BUGKOS and JONASDIEGO.COM.
Held at the CAS ANNEX 2 building.
We arrived on time,thanks primarilly to MACOY'S REVO!
The event started around in the afternoons.
A short power interruption wouldn't deter the spirits of the attendees and SURELY enough
shortly after the opening ceremonies were conducted ,electricity would come back and literally POWER the said event.
Upon entering,the crowd would immediately be greeted by rows and rows of FUNNY KOMIKS and CULTURE CRASHES.Posters,covers,and other sample works from the old masters are also on display.
At the first room where the event proper would be held,a long queue of MANIX fans is most definitely a sight to be seen.
On our side of the story,we were able to sell 4 out of 8 copies.And 5 party masks (courtesy of macoy's wife : CHERRY)
YES...I REPEAT PARTY MASKS!!!
The very first purchase of the day would come from KUYA JON ZAMAR.This was also before the event had even started so...BUENA MANO!
We even met RAIPO.A long time INDIE KOMPLEX and FACEBOOK pal!
*No event photo available*
And...we're FINALLY been lucky enough to meet NICKO PATINO,one of our SPUTNIK customer.
*Please pardon the picture,if he looks like a deer on headlights*
Around 3-ish,NO NEW SOULS were coming in so vendors and artists alike spent mostof the day chit-chatting about the events that had happenend.
Around the same time I was also being DINO-SCHOOLED by macoy's son : JOSE ERIC.
|Ayoko na...huhuhu MERCY!|
We also saw Sir Danny Acuna doing what he does best!
Later on we met the prettiest marshall ever..ANDA.
Yeah...i totally subscribe to the whole "LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT" theory...She asked me to sign her shirt and it was a lotta fun....well atleast for ME!
There were a total of three cosplayers in the said event.
The one with the red face
*no picture available*Our last purchase would come from a sweet yet feisty lady named : MARIVE.
Whom is an awesome artist herself.
And since we're very uncooperative towards being photographed,
she decided to feed us a dose of our own medicine!
This pic really made our day!Thanks TEPAI!
The event ended around 5pm.Komikstrip organizers was gracious enough to feed us not once, but TWICE!
In my entire 4 year career, never have I felt such genuine care and concern from an event organizer.
BOSTON WALK was really worth the WALK.
And they never failed to thank us and remind us that our efforts were appreciated.
Thank You KOMIKSTRIP 2011!
|Is it just me or isn't this OVERLOADING?|
On our way home we tested the limits of macoy's car by carpooling twice as many artistsas before.Macoy was accomodating enough to let us buy some PASALUBONGS and
the occasional stop overs to empty our bladders.
HURRAY,and life was good!
We bid farewell @ SHANG-RILA.
And with a promise of meeting again....we part ways.
Thanks ulit you guys, SEE YOU SOON!
