As part of my efforts to release a self-help eBook by the end of August 2021, I was hoping to get the pulse of the public (so to speak) on the topics that they would like me to touch on. The general question is this: If you had an opportunity to talk to a counseling and/or sport psychologist for an hour, what would the session focus on?

The button below will redirect you to the survey.

Lindol Comics in 2020

While sitting at the Lindol Comics table during the two-day (February 8 and 9) Komiket: The Filipino Komiks and Art Market 2020 event, it never really sunk in that our first convention of the year would also turn out to be our last.

No matter how much I tried to ignore it, there were small signs here and there. For one, alcohol dispensers were situated in almost every other row of tables. We were also discouraged from shaking hands.

My initial thought was, “Just some minor inconveniences. Things will eventually get better.”

Five weeks later, they didn’t. Just progressively worse.

As I look back, I am still happy that we got to have that Megatrade Hall 2 experience in Megamall.

With everything that has been happening in the world, at least that is something I can fondly look back on whenever I think of 2020.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, time for some good news.


The Good News

Randy and I are happy to announce that Lindol #6 and Lindol #7 are in their final stages of editing. (Updated | July 6, 2021)
