Ang Kahon + PIKO: Anthology of Comics for Children

Last year, I was invited by Josel Nicolas, a good friend and a fellow artist, to contribute for his project PIKO: an Anthology of Comics for Children published in the Philippines by Anino Comics, an imprint of Adarna House Publishing.  You can purchased PIKO online at Adarna House website.

And so I came up with Ang Kahon (The Box).  I already had the story in my mind for quite some time now.  Originally, Ang Kahon is a project I've been planning for a short cut-out paper animation like my old project called "When I was a Bata". Maybe next time. :)

Here is a film version of Ang Kahon. First shown on the night of Chamtamaria's 8th Reading Komiks (Anino edition) at Uno Morato, April 19, 2015. Since today is the initial release of PIKO plus it's Free Comic Book Day, I've decided to share this as well.

(Apologies for the bad audio. While editing this, my computer was dying on me.) I still think it's kinda weird hearing my voice doing the narration, specially when it is intentionally conceived as a silent comics. Nevertheless, hope you'll enjoy.

(Special thanks to: Josel Nicolas, Rob Cham, Carljoe Javier, Adam David, Anino Comics, Uno Morato, and to all the contributors)

Help for Nepal

The world is in mourning for all the citizens of Nepal due to Saturday's devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake. As of today, April 27, 2015, at least 4,400 people were confirmed dead and 8,000 injured. It is so sad that while nearly a million Nepalese children crucially need assistance, humanitarian workers say medical supplies are reported to be in short supply.

Below are some links where you can help:
