Happy Browsing !!!
I was chosen to be part of Hal Santiago's committee, about Careers and enhancement, it was a sudden super short notice and the people around want me to be their speaker with Mr. Hal, then during the intro, they dubbed us chairmans, and me assistant chairman of that committee.Its weird that Im quoting myself here.
primarily focus is on conducting workshop and seminar, this was one of the idea of Mr. Hal, while I do a small part in telling them about a plan about free comic materials for those who want to learn the art of writing and drawing via using the internet, using our own resources and artist.
to have our own lecturing styles.
it was very hard to explain first to them, (while speaking at the front) that being part of an international based comic agency and partnering up with Mr. Hal and the local comic field, I just told them to learn one another and try to merge it and try to form a new or modern concept. its very complication for my part. Because Im exposed to a different comic industry.
then i just told them about making a series of school tour, not just aiming at the urban and provincial side, but more focusing on the general people like in the malls, exclusive school, private areas, which have a big interest in the comic field.
i told them im not a comic artist or writer, but i do lots of comic related activities and just hope that they can get my point.
im not sure if they will fund this project and me and my big mouth, conceptualizing a Comic boot camp for all and a venue to all artist who can teach one another and share ideas as one, and develop each other via mentoring.
just like we do in komikero and artists den.
im not really sure what will happen next, but Mr. Hal give me a big thumbs up and we will talk about this maybe next week. or soon.
i think its a go. Mr. Caparas stood up, shake my hand and im glad that he listens. ( i think...)
I was about talk to him in a short time after the congress.... but..
i just cant get a good conversation, after these press and media stormed around with him for a quick interview
maybe soon...I can talk to him..and present some issues
Im uploading a video today, and he took back what he says about comics being dead.
im not really sure of my involvement in the Komiks Kongress, it was very unexpected event for me. and even if people do believe in it or not, its up to the Kongress to grant these ideas and project if ever they really want to make the comic scene healthy.
