"ATTACK!" written by Ed Lim, art by me

check it out here!
I jokingly made a deal with Wilson Tortosa that I'd cosplay as Princess if I get an autographed copy of BOTP issue 1.

Next thing I know he's reserving a copy of Issue 1 for me, insisting that "the resemblance is striking".

...I wonder why he said that?

I think I'm in trouble :) but hey, if I get to pull it off, not only do I get to finally cosplay like I always wanted to, I also get to have a free autographed copy of Wilson's BOTP Issue one! WHEEEEEEEEEEEE!

We went shopping for groceries at the South Supermarket. There I saw some ballpools for sale. Remembering the time Beya told us about how Mikko loved playing in it once, I pointed it out to her. Eventually she had me take it down from the display. When we set it down to the floor Mikko immediately climbed in and settled himself inside. There was only one ball out that time, but he kept doing his loud babytalk(whenever he's really excited) and kept tossing that ball, smiling to everyone who looks in.

So yeah, she bought that overpriced sh-.. ahem, toy. Mikko looked devastated when he saw the assistant put it away in a box and left. the rest of the time as we punched it out in at the cashier Mikko was unusually quiet and subdued, in contrast to his previous hyperactivity. Before he saw the ballpool he was walking all over the grocery, even insisting to enter the warehouse parts! Of course, in the process he's making everyone melt: "Awww! Look! Baby!!! What's your name widdle..?"

Yep, he was even quiet on the way home. So we decided to set up the ballpool when we got to the sala. As soon as mikko saw the pool he kept chasing Beya even she's barely starting to set it up. it was a funny scene watching them go round and round the sala with beya clutching the Pool. Eventually we set it up. He climbed in. And we poured in the balls. he was sitting there squealing at maximum volume throwing all these balls in the air.

When he paused to rest, we suggested maybe he needs a playmate inside.
"Like hell I'm going in there! I'm too frickin' tall!"
"Well, who's the next youngest ampng us?"
"Hey Wan! Get in there!"
"Very funny!"

SOBE Night

As we did the last cycle of our laundry, Beya had this bright idea to go to Sobe. She's been wanting to go there way before, like since it opened, but we never got around to it. So i guess after wanwan's been going there so often the Sobe people practically knows her, only now have thought about going there ourselves.

As usual whenever we have a 'family outing', we were bickering like hell while we prepared to go.

"I don't feel like going!"
"I'm hungry!"
"Change your outfit!"
"Your fashion sense sucks!"
"Like hell you're wearing those shoes with that blouse!"
"Like hell YOU"RE going out dressed half-covered like that!"

It didn't reach to the point where we'd bust out our kungfu half naked, but it did reach to the point that one of us walked out and dressed back to houseclothes because of all the arguing. But I talked her out of it and eventually we were out the door. I was actually the one who doesn't feel like going, but I realized Beya wants to at least see inside Sobe. And honestly, so do I. So we went.

We got there joking around that she should start working in Sobe because she hangs out there so often. The reason I didn't feel like going was because I was hungry and i thought they're only gonna try the booze. I was happy when I heard we're trying out the food there. Wan kept raving about the sisig. She said it's tastes so good because it tastes jut like the sisig she cooks herself. When I said I don't eat sisig they just said, "You will."

Being the adventurous girl that I am, I was relieved when Beya ordered some tenderloin tips, "just in case". She ordered iced tea. Wan ordered San Mig Lite for us. When the food came after the booze, Wan set herself to work 'improving' the sisig, then made sure to put some of her finished masterpiece onto my plate. I managed to eat it when I combine it with the steak. And of course, she's happy I tried it, because I rarely try out new food. I just said it's because she 'made' it.

And of course by the time we got to the second round of San Mig Light, we started talking about... stuff. About how Wan is enjoying being a single girl, and Beya worrying about being a single parent, and their worrying about me being single until I'm all old and wrinkly. That is, if I ever live that long.

We congratulated was for her re-entry to freedom, then reassured Beya that Mikko will have a father figure when he needs one. Then they busted my balls (er, well, if i have any) for being so damn grouchy and deliberately making myself look uglier and more masculine. They resolved to wanwan taking me shopping. I honestly would rather spend my hard-earned money to PC upgrades than on those flimsy pieces of fabrics they insist I wear, but they won't hear of it.

We also ordered nachos because I love salsa. As the plates and booze piled onto our table, us three girls reassured each other that we'll take home anything that we can't eat anymore.

We must be really hungry doing the laundry and stuff: we cleaned our plates. mamy would have been proud. We asked for the bill. They asked me how much money I brought. Wan said she has a hundred. I said "Almost a hundred." They both fell off their seats (um, not literally, it would be embarassing if it were) and looked at me suspiciously when I put away my plate to make space for all the food.

"Whew! I thought you're gonna go to the kitchen!"
"Oh sure, like I'm gonna put on an apron and say 'Whaaaaat? You expect me to pay for that overpriced shit?"
"You try that and I can never be able to show my face here again!"

When the bill came I handed over a P500 from my secret stash (no, I'm NOT gonna tell you if it's hidden inside my bra. Besides, I wasn't wearing one at the time) and they were relieved. Beya gave me P300 to shoulder almost half the bill, then took care of the rest. We're home by 11pm and we told mamy all about it. Wan promised to take her there next time, since she loves trying out new resturants.

Well if you don't have enough jobs to keep you busy, take a minute out of your whatever and send me a damn sample so i can see if i want to hire you on as a penciler. Not to be rude, kid, but don't tell me to go to a site to see a...um, sight. Show me a page of panel work and a cover sample and then we'll talk.

Until then....

I'm an artist and i can make one pencilled and inked page per day. I need gigs not just because of the money, but also becauseI finish my jobs so fast I could never have enough jobs to keep me busy :)

Hi there. I am pleased that you decided me worthy of interest. I can relate to your dilemna. I always come up with scripts and the like, hammer them out, and then have to deal with nothing left to do. I am also going to express how happy I am that such a beautiful young woman decided that I might be an option. You're actually the first woman to respond to my post. I am currently working on about nine titles I want to put out and there is a tenth that I submitted to Marvel Comics' EPIC imprint.

I just got finished looking at your online art and although I realy liked it I didn't see anyting that would wuggest you would be right for the feel of what I'm trying to do. I'm looking for someone with a real edge, real dark type stuff. If you're capable of this kind of style then by all means get back to me with some samples and I'll be glad to take a look at them.

Hey there--

Your art's sweet, I must say, especially body language and technical drafting. Plus the male lead in Asian Girl looks like one of the characters in my comic (were you using Chris Klein as reference by any chance?)

BUT... (and there's always a but)

I think I found my artist already. I'm going to keep your email handy just in case it falls through, but for right now, I'm consigned to him unless you hear otherwise from me.

Best of luck, and thanks for the samples.

Thank you for responding to my ad.

Unfortunately, as I can tell you are a good, hardworking artist, I am currently much too busy to start on anything new. I have already chosen an artist out of the many who responded to the same ad, and I'm head over heels with work (writing two comics, a possible 3rd, and chief script designer for an upcoming RPG).

I would though like to keep in contact with you, I wouldn't mind hiring you to work on some of my side jobs. I will keep in touch when the time is right.

Have a great day, and keep up the good work!

PS- Although this may sound a little unprofessional, I think you're a very cute girl. I can't help but to make a compliment^_^.

Jac's note to self: remove pic from online resume. it might be doing more damage than good ^_^;;
I submitted art samples today to magiquetv.com
