Trumpex 2005



Trumpeter scale model Exhibit in Megamall Cyberzone, I was surprised to see this exhibit organized by the IPMS, I went to Mega to go shopping for some laptop peripherals when I saw the exhibit.


i love submarines!! they are the coolest armed vehicle

I was about to join the club last February when I was doing some editorial work for the cancelled hobby magazine and they invited me at their monthly meetings in U.P. Diliman, I was so upset when I failed to attend their meetings and they even contacted me tru email and told me why I didnt arrived, I just told them that the magazine's publishing company failed to send me some money and support to interview and visit them.


but im glad that the group is still here to promote our pinoy talents in plastic modelling. I met one of the member back 2003, during the Star Wars convention I organized with Star Wars Philippines. that was the first time I discovered about IPMS, coz they told me If I'm interested to invite them to host some exhibits. But I got the card and told them last Feb 2005 about the magazine and the Toycon.

The Ultimate Gregorio Sightings



all photos were from the Beerkada booksigning in Gloria Jeans Coffee in Shopwise Araneta. The venue was occupied by artists, fans, comic readers, and also coffee lovers. Lyndon did a week long appearance and art show featuring his book comic title Beerkada.


His loyal fans called "the Beerkadets" went there to support his work and also took a peak at Syeri Baet's comic Carpool ehheh, we joked around in Beerkada's forum board posting Lyndon Sightings, topic is about when you see Lyndon you should post pics of him when you see him in other place, stolen shots of him is a good points to all readers aahhaa and the master mind of this thread was ME! haaahahah.


while on the other side I was with Mark on the corner with other friends reading Mark's new magazine, it was like a small artists reunion and I' happy to see them all.


this coming friday catch Syeri Baet's Carpool booksigning and also it will be her birthday celebration. The booksigning will have a live band performance.
it will be more fun when we gather together at Gloria Jeans Coffee Shopwise Araneta.

Blogging Back!
waahaha Im back from the land of no post and I'l post some updates here before my midterm exam starts this thursday and and on monday next week will be the start of my final term, So I have to burn lots of brain cells in order to pass all my subjects..sniff sniff.. my math subjects are getting difficult.

Last week was a project week and submission of group work for my Natsci class and it was a funny experiment here at my home, and also lots of load of programming projects for my computer class, my hands are getting tired already I just felt it one time that my hands are still sleeping and I think its like a keyboard burn (opps new term), I mean hands and fingers got tired and stressed because of the frequent use of it with a keyboard, and also there's a mouse burn, black markings located at the side of your wrist, it forms a black band on the side.

another sleepless night last week as I helped Lace and her groupmates in their thesis and I did lots of layouting stuff and also some flash presentation, I was disappointed in my work, coz Im using the old version of Swish v.2 , and I'm not good using the old version and it has only few effects for flash animations.
but the thing is... Its done and everyone is happy that their oral defense is over and minor revisions had to be done this week.

and its nice to stay overnight at Lace place, means more fun and I can see Anya more, ahhhah cutie! awwwww

I've been doing some freelance job, and thanks to Ms. Irene Mendoza, President of Vianet Webdesigns of Seattle, USA for trusting me to join their team in making web based flash and flash presentation. its a good paying gig and now I'm waiting for a new project that is to be composed using flash. and its sad that the other project that I want was turned over to other developers.but its okay I can still grab some more projects. and yes! I love the job!

Komikon na kayo!

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
(unofficial) poster draft design, but never made it as the official poster coz we need ask pa sa mga comic creators for using their orig characters for he Komikon poster. layout by Jon of www.Minsan.tk


Komikon is nearly coming and the event needs sponsors so if you people know some company who might be interested in sponsoring an event just tell us and we will send out a sponsorship letter, The Artists Den are organizing the event in full super power and helping them is greatly appreciated. and for me i haven't finished the Komikon website, and I used Blogger.com as the website interface for running the Komikon website. My template is still dead, but I dont want to rush things and I want my web template be good and hmm simplier.


The Guild Wars event

click photo to enlarge

I was informed by Henry one of my avatar in the community, that Guild Wars local is using the Toycon's cosplay rules for their cosplay contest, I was alarmed on that incident and I emailed the organizers of AMDG, the distributor for Guild Wars, and i told them about the incident, I told them to change and remove the cosplay rules coz it is copyrighted and it can only be used for the Toycon event, coz they forgot to delete this one rule in their draft "8.Live Action Figure Cosplayer winners will be", something like that, so it looks pretty obvious and its a 99% copy of our rules that was formulated by me and Henry way back of Toycon 2004.

its nice that they replied to my email and now we arranged a good agreement and relationship and what I did was to pass on the duties to Henry, so we gave now our permission to use the rules, coz changing it might cause some troubles from the participants, coz the rules were already posted in all online boards. and now the other cosplay judges for their event will be me or Henry.
thanks to them for inviting me to atttend their event.
