I was on my way to work this morning, as usual catching the train to work. In my zeal to board the train before the doors close, I bumped a couple of people.

The woman that I bumped let loose an angry tirade of words, and I responded in kind. The man I bumped jumped to her defense, saying I bumped him, too. Hotheadedness prevailed and I let loose a few angry words at him, too. Then I told them it was over and done with and shut my mouth for the duration of the ride.

As I was standing there during the ride steaming, I had the chance to cool off and think about things. I realized that I was the guilty party here. My conscience wouldn't let it go.

As my stop came closer, I approached both the man and the woman and told them I was sorry. They both nodded in response. As I got off the train, I felt as if a huge burden was lifted off my shoulders.

Why am I sharing this? It's just to let anyone who reads this that it's always better to have a cool head. it's also better to admit when you are wrong. And it's best to say "sorry" when you are.

REALLY not meant to be...

As you can see, White Wolf and Maskarado are still up there, though the character who's different is VAMPIOLO by Garro. It was decided to move around the characters, so Sandata and Sanduguan got moved to a strictly superhero title with some of Gilbert Monsanto's characters. The comic that was supposed to feature Maskarado and White Wolf became a dark, noir-ish title, so Vampiolo was added. That's why you can see the lighting in the art above has a bit more shadows.

Well, the plans went kaput! and that was that.

Anyway, this new BAYAN KNIGHTS project that Gilbert and Gio Paredes have cooked up got me excited. Maskarado will be part of the group, although I won't be taking an active part in the creation of the book itself. Oh, and Sandata and Sanduguan will be there, too. Good luck, guys!

Not meant to be...

Colors by Ner Pedrina

This was supposed to be a monthly anthology, with three continuing stories. After plenty of talks and some starts and stops, it got stopped permanently. It actually evolved into another thing, but that, too, didn't push through. I'll show what it evolved into on my next post.

I won't go into details on how or why the project didn't materialize. I just wanted to show the effort put into this so the artwork won't go to waste.

Sandata created by Ner Pedrina, White Wolf created by Leonard Banaag and Jomar Bulda.

The above piece of art was done for Dario Carrasco Jr. I was supposed to do the book for him, but some other stuff prevented me from doing so.

Moontracker is written by C.W. Russette and illustrated by Dario Carrasco Jr. Coming soon from Arcana Studio!
