Lecture in FEU

Image hosted by
its my first time to have a lecture and talk in my school, and thanks to Diane,my classmate in Differential Equation class for inviting me to their Computer Science Trends class for a lecture talk about animation and the new trends in digital technology.

I'll be having my first talk and I'm not soooo ready coz I got busy while ago making my assignment in Earth Science. Now I'm speeding up my line to make these powerpoint presentation.

I'm trying to transcribe my lecture and hopefully I upload it here, like what I do every lecture talk in school. The topic is not majority about Anime or Animation, but will also introduce to the class about Flash animation and digital film making.

Also her classmates are looking for people who can do lecture about web comics or digital art. If someone is interested to do a 1 hour lecture talk in Far Eastern University, you can leave a message in my comment link or send me an email to azrel @ gmail . com

Komikero interview day

Our runaway mission is a succes...
Its a long hour trip from Cavite to San Pablo City, and I'm glad that theres this easy road going to Alabang,. I know that we have a smooth ride going there, we ate choco mousse cake inside Lace's car and sleep sleep sleep going to Laguna.

and this interview is about the philippine comic history, industry and the market side of comics. thanks to Gerry Alanguilan for allowing us to come and visit him to his home-museum, which was called Philippine Komik Art Museum. And i was stunned to see his pinoy comic art collection displayed in the walls, comics and books in a 9 feet book shelf. and after a short rest, Lace started her interview for her school paper.

Alex Nino comic art compilation

He showed us lots of stuff, and this Alex Nino book art compilation is a great reference and it immortalize the work of our pinoy artist. Lace have to read all these stuff and check it out to have a better knowledge and understad the comic industry during the Golden Age.

Ilyn was there at home and it was fun to jam again with them. I think we caught them up in a middle of work at home before we came in. And I'm glad that everything is fine during the interview, and hmm Lace forgot to buy tape, so we only have 1 hour of Gerry Alaguilan lecture about the pinoy comic industy.

Silent Dragon...Leinil Yu original penciled pages and inked ones by Gerry

After lunch, (yum! the chicken and cornbeef is delicious! a great partner with Coke and lots of chikahan), He showed us his current work, inking the pages of Silent Dragon, a new mini series from DC comics and Wildstorn comics, a great team up again of Leinil Yu and Gerry.

and after that he showed me Batman Danger Girl comics, and Superman Birthright Hard Cover, and I was surprised when he told me that he didnt read comics that has his works, and I said that Superman Birthright is one hella good comics and he should read it, and he said that its good not to read it just look at the art and he might hmm..criticize his own artwork in the comics...and then I said..ah uhm...ya youre right...that will be creepy, and if that happens it can be annoying, well its good that I got some tips and understand what's his work.
