One of these days, I'll develop one. My new bag has a larger carrying capacity than the previous one, but today I had to carry more than my usual load since some people I know suddenly returned the stuff I loaned to them all at once and I guess I miscalculated the weight I could carry.
On a side note, I don't have back problems yet. And my leg is healing (there's still pain, but not as much as yesterday).
I feel one of these days, I'll be known as "Elbert's
Had to deliver 20 more copies of Grafic at CCHQ since 29 of the 30 copies available have already been sold. And counting the sales in Cebu and the issues me and Elbert peddles, around 25% of our stock of Grafic has already been sold.
Now if only we could peddle it in the far reaches of Metro Manila, like Ayala or Taft...
And of course, had to drop off some comics for Dean
from Elbert. Unfortunately, Dean wasn't at Pipeline. One of his lovely employees (she was wearing earphones listening to the computer I think) gave me a smile though and asked who I was looking for (since the secratary was currently preoccupied).
Didn't get to thank her though (stupid Charles!) because my attention was immediately drawn to Carlo
(who remembers me!) who owes Elbert some money. Left the comics with the secratary and me and Carlo went to the bank (to rob it! just kidding).
Aside from cramming some 400 pages of James Joyce, I will have my hands full for the rest of the year as I'll be publishing two comic anthologies (OST: Original Story Theatre - Extended Edition?/Full Version?/Editor's Cut? hopefully at a retail price of P50 with 64 pages and as of yet an untitled project) and will get myself published along with my blockmates as it's a requirement for our senior year to come out with a book.
And of course, I will have to learn how to market these projects so that we'll manage to break even somehow.
Oh yeah, in case anyone's interested in purchasing Grafic (Comicol's publication last sem), just send me emails or your contact numbers. P60 for 52 pages. Visit the website
I'm optimized for the Philippine climate. Which means I don't mind the heat. Sure, I'm sweating, but that's just a minor inconvenience. And I still stay in a room with the windows closed and no aircon or electric fan. I don't sleep with a blanket anymore though. Which just goes to show how weird (which, isn't necessarily a bad thing) I am...
