Komikero Video Blog 7, More Art

Komikero 5th Year Anniversary!
Komikero Video Blog #7

Video of our meeting on August 27, along Sampalok Lake (and elsewhere) here in San Pablo. Welcome to our new members Myke, Pilar and John!

The Komikero Artists group is an informal artists group that meet every last Sunday of the month. The group is based in San Pablo City, but welcomes members from practically anywhere else. We have members from Los Baños, Manila, Cavite, Cebu, Kidapawan, even France!


The Philippine Komiks Message Board is a constant source of amazement as the many veteran comic book illustrators publicly post their rarely seen artwork. The most active posters include such masters as Romeo Tanghal and Dell Barras, but you can also see work by 80's favorites like Louie Escauriaga, creator of Superdog for Funny Komiks.

He was footloose and fancy-free, a playboy, she recounts. But he also started working at a very tender age.
