Komikero Meet November 2005
The Komikero group met for its usual last Sunday of the month gathering today. The Komikero group, initially called the Laguna Artists Group, is composed of artists, not necessarily from comics, but from any field of art.
One doesn't even have to be a professional artist, but all you need is a healthy interest in art, a sense of humor, and willing to take a dive in the water.
Regular meeting place of the group is along the banks of Sampalok Lake in San Pablo City. To be a member of the group, all you really need is to join us in our meetings here. The group was initially formed for Laguna artists, but it's open for anyone, anywhere, as long as they are willing to join us here for at least one of our meetings.
Ang mga pinaka-maaga as usual. Raipo and Me!

Favorite Komikero food. Grilled coagulated blood dipped in spiced vinegar. MMM!
Grilled coagulated chicken blood. On a stick! I'm not kidding!
Being mostly artists from differerent fields, we take this opportunity to go back to the basics by engaging in drawing from life. Whether we draw comics, paint, take photographs, teach, study, we take this opportunity to sharpen our observation and drawing skills by drawing anything on the lake that catches our fancy. People, trees, birds, the lake itself, the far mountains... anything. As long as it's something that's there.
