It takes quite a lot more discipline for me to draw emotional sequences now after that whirlwind action packed fantasy ride with Skyworld. This new project is taking more time to finish but still fun to execute.
That's really sweet <3 I have a question: how do you decide on projects to do? Do people approach you? Do you collab with friends? Or do you write them yourself? (I know Mervyn Ignacio wrote Skyworld but who made up the initial idea?)
Well, usually everything starts with a few bottles of beer. When i met Mervin years ago i already had the idea of making a tikbalang story. originally we just wanted a 12 page action scene and it just blew up from there. I have known David Hontiveros for quite a while and we just talked about a Kadasig story that led to "Katumbas" in Summit's Underpass. This project was pitched to me by my good friend and ex officemate Russell Molina. We had a few talks about it over drinks and it felt like a good break from the action/fantasy stories i've been drawing. So yeah... mostly it's a collaboration with friends
