Tattered Shorts Cover
Being a total noob with writing and publishing, I may have put too many eggs in my basket.
Oh the book is coming along nicely, with so many short stories and ideas I have written down, some of them committed to memory, it's driving me nuts just to keep track.
Now, I've come encountered a bump in the road. Two, actually. Like I said, there's just too many stories for just one book. And the second bump - I don't have enough funds to go all-writer and publish a book as thick as the white pages.

So while editing and proof reading myself, I've come to terms and settled for a couple of economical and practical ways to pursue my delusions of being a writer and illustrator at the same time. Because my short stories, narratives or whatever you may call them have a word count ranging from 900 to 12,000 words, and they are a lot of titles. So, here it is:

TATTERED SHORTS will be available on February 22, 2018. It's a Thursday, when I play bass and sing myself silly with a couple of outstanding musicians, Pepe and Jerome, and myself, otherwise known as The Komradze [mk II] at Bambu Intramuros. The book is set at 7"x8.5" and will have at least 10 stories and illustrations. The good part is I still have a lot to put in the next book - DISCARDED SHORTS. hat is if I could pool enough funds for both.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. TATTERED SHORTS will be the initial offering for my own VisualNoise venture, with Mike Carlo as partner, whom I think is good natured enough not to show his impatience (we will get through this bro). DISCARDED SHORTS will follow, and eventually those illustrated graphic komiks novels, of which I will blog from time to time.
Yes, I know I haven't been blogging for sometime, but since I have decided to write more, draw more and play music, there's no better time than now.

If you haven't been following this blog, better do it now for more updates.

The Dwarf

This concludes the illustrations I did for Diamond Stars Wrestling.

I love wrestling. I love the dedication each performance requires.
