This post is long overdue.
I am not a huge fan of comic books, unlike Ino. Actually going to Komiket was his idea. I don’t know much about comics or Filipino comics in general. I am not quite familiar with the who’s who of Filipino comics. But I used to read Beerkada by Lyndon Gregorio on Philippine Star when I was in grade school or high school. So, I had my fangirling moment when I met him at Komiket.
These photos were taken at Komiket in Centris last October 3, 2015. It was our first Komiket so we were very excited. We went there around 3pm to 4pm until 7 PM and had a very good experience.
What is Komiket?
According to Komiket’s Facebook page, The Filipino Komiks Market (KOMIKET) aims to discover new comics creators, new readers and celebrate new comic book launches! Kita-kits sa Komiket! 🙂
It was a fun experience. It was an avenue for graphic artists, illustrators, and artists who want to exhibit their self-published works.
They were also selling various stuff from T-shirts to mugs to self-published comic books, different kinds of comic books, mangas, discounted comic books, etc.
There was a painting session for children of all ages too. Some were also selling adult coloring books, paints, pens, paint brushes and other drawing or sketching materials.
Some famous artists and illustrators were featured in the event as well. Wait, I think I kinda mixed up the Komiket and Komikon experience. Haha! But I guess you’ll see most of these this year, if you are interested to come. Of course.
Aside from famous Filipino artists and publishers who have published their own works, there are a lot of young artists who are doing commissions too. Most of them have just started a few years ago and some of them have just joined this event. Oh! There are a lot of handsome and cute artists, and illustrators too! Hehehe…
Since I am not really good at painting, drawing, sketching, MS Paint, Adobe Photoshop, or anything artistic aside from writing and story telling… I can say that it was an awesome experience! I guess there will be more people (those who know how to draw, read and enjoy mangas, hardcore and not-so-hardcore
[softcore?] comic book fans, artists, illustrators, or anyone who knows much about drawing, sketching and the like…) who will appreciate this event in 2016. I hope that they can spread the word in advance, like what I’m doing now. Haha!
Oh, Komiket didn’t pay me to advertise their event. Haha! It’s just that I really enjoyed it that’s why I’m posting everything here.
I wish that more people can go and visit the event this year. We are planning to go too.
All in all, it was one heck of an experience and I hope that this year’s Komiket would be more awesome.
