Well, it's one day after the deadline for this audition, so here's a message from David Hontiveros!
So it’s the 22nd of November, which means we’ve safely cleared the deadline for the Artist Search.
At this point, the shortlisted will be moving onto Phase 2 soon enough.
Regardless of whether you heard back from us or not, I’d like to thank everyone who sent their samples in. As I said before, even if you didn’t get shortlisted this time around, you’re still in our “database,” and should your art style be apparently compatible with some future comic book project, rest assured, you’ll hear from us.
In the meantime, keep on drawing. If comics are your passion, then put in those all-important hours at honing and perfecting your craft. Remember, it’s not just about how well you can draw, it’s also about how well you can tell a story, how well you can navigate comic book panels and pages, how well you can mine all that potential that’s stored on the blank space of every brand new comic page.
We should be making more announcements in the near future, so keep an eye out here on the Cube for those.
Before I go, I’d also like to thank Duy, for being the gracious host for this Search.
Also, as an aside, I’d like to thank everyone who passed by the table at the recently concluded Kon to support Bathala and all the other Alamat titles.
It’s good and enthusiastic people like you who make what we do worth it.
Keep on drawin', Cubers!
