Inside the Green Gate
it was a fun and cool day inside DLSU, and also our lecture is a success, even theres only less than 20 students, but im glad that there are still interested in our topics, it easier to hold a class if theres a small number of students. interactivity of lecturer and student is not a problem, im glad that they participate in our lecture.

funny thing is that my honey Lace is one of my student, and some friends in DLSU join and attended our lecture. its cool to use the facility of DLSU. ohh...airconditioned classroom, clean CR, friendly enviroment, and lots of food resto everywhere.

Comics Events and Conventions
by: Azrael Deasis Coladilla

Events and Convention for comics are the amusement, entertainment and fairground for the comic fans, comic creators, and merchandisers. It's a big promotional gathering and it's a yearly and seasonal activity for the comic pop culture.

Functions of Events and Conventions


The importance of having these events and conventions is for all comic fans, creators and publishers to gather in one place and promote each other's comic related products and services.


The interaction between comic readers and creators is established.

Market Research

It's a big opportunity for the comic publishers to know more about their target market, environment, competitors and trends.

This will help them with product development. Their next product releases just like any product in the market will be designed based on the current market situation.

In short, events and conventions serve as a market place for comic artists, publishers and enthusiasts.

Elements of a successful comic event

1. The event should be fan friendly

2. It should promote interaction
a. Comic fan - comic creator
b. Fan to fan
c. Comic creator-creator relationship

3. Art appreciation

Organizing 101

1.organize a small-scale event
2.organize a big scale event

a. Make a plan for your event
b. Prepare list of programs
c. List of contacts
d. Guests
e. Activities
f. Venue
g. Budget
h. Sponsors
i. Making business
j. Public Relation
k. Promote the event

Plan the event
1.set a date
2.time and schedule
3.timetable of organizing

Programs: set of activities, itinerary for the event
-It should feed the interests of all the stakeholders:

1. The corporate persons
2. The target market (readers, fans)
3. The publishers
4. The advertisers/sponsors

2.affordable for the target market

1.always try to plan a "no budget event"
2.divide the budget for venue, production, talent fee, and prizes

Getting sponsors
Sponsors reduce the cost of organizing an event. Sponsors are willing to give a certain amount of money or anything of value in exchange for their company's exposure, promotion and participation in the event.

-Submit a good proposal (mostly for budget)
-Should be SMART
S- simple, specific
T-time bound

-Present a working idea
-Show your back track

Possible Activities
1.Comic book launchings
2.Comic creators panel discussions
3.autograph signings

Turning everything into a business
-Events organizing like any other forms of marketing activities are for profit.

1. Entrance fee
-Get profit from volume and not from high mark ups if possible
-Pricing depends on the lifestyle, age and income of the target audience

2. Sponsorships
3. Entry fees for other contest
4. Divestitute: sell your big idea to other events organizers or publishers if you feel you lack the time and resources to do the job.

Public Relation
In events organizing, you need to have good public relation skills, because it is easier to move in the event organizing field if you know the key players, and if you have connections, organizing will be an easier task

Promoting the event
the best way to promote and advertise your event is through word of mouth, it serves as a direct marketing tool and the credibility level is high

If you have a budget, you can use the "tri-media", TV, print and radio; however, there is another form of media that should be exploited, the Internet.

The Internet is a good medium to advertise products, services and in our case, events. It is the least costly advertising tool that we can utilize.

Whichever medium you choose, the layout and content must always be fit to the target audience's demographics and psychographics

the Artists' Den , enjoying some freebies from Siena. (photo by Lei)

last sunday was our campus tour in Siena College QC. The Artists' Den pulled another succesful campus tour and having an ART Workshop for kids.

i came late that time, coz i felt dizzy and sick in the morning, and failed to catch the 1st batch of the workshop, but when i came to the school. its time for lunch! lots of food everwhere! its like a food fiesta... then theres a note in my head that says "I love Crispy Pata".

Thanks to Mrs. Payoyo,Siena Faculty and Principal for inviting us there.

Lico is a Spongebob lecturer hahahaha

it was a fun lecture, can't believe that all these kids are too much addicted to Sponge Bob Sqaure pants, so our lecturers like Lico did some Spongebob examples during his lecture. Lico taught them on how to make a story and explains on some elements of the right way to generate ideas and concept in comic making. next was Lyndon about Character Developement

Drawing time..thanks to Melch's drawing manual.

and final - Melch teaches them on basic drawing and drawing activity.

Cold feet

while ago i snapped, and almost broken my keyboard. as this anger came up on something that i cant even handle myself at that time, and i was very afraid to myself whenever that happens, my mind got blank, and almost did something bad to my love one. im glad that i take that deep breathe and let the air flow to my heart, but the coldness of the darkside consumes me for almost 30 minutes, and its frickin' freaky.

some goofball triggers my entity. and i released it and almost burst my chest open and let all the nega energies out of my body.
i thought i was going to lose someone because of that. and im glad that everything became A-OK.

and greatest fear in my self...

must control the uncontrollable.

its my frickin fault.....i think i need that coffee talk again with Heffer Wolfe and Matric Aros.
