For (Season 1 | Episode 3) of The Tedi31 Podcast with Dr. Tedi Villasor, I traveled to Tia Maria’s Sining at Kultura in beautiful San Pablo, Laguna for a sit down with the creative team of BakokakGerry Alanguilan and Kevin Ray Valentino.

With ten books underneath his belt, Gerry shared some of his writing insights and upcoming projects. Kevin also let’s us in on what’s has been keeping him busy since the release of Bakokak in November 2017.

Due to some recording issues, I’ve had to edited out most of the last question that I asked Gerry and Kevin as well as the closing remarks.  However, you can read the transcript of the missing audio below.

Gerry Alanguilan: Kevin already mentioned a few of them but I would add patience. I’ve seen a few aspiring artists who are in a hurry. It doesn’t usually happen that way. It usually takes a lot of time to develop yourself as an artist so you really have to be patient and determined. You really have to love comics because if you don’t love it, it’s hard whether it’s easy or whatever when you are creating comics.

Tedi Gustilo Villasor: Thank you. The San Pablo Comics Festival will be this coming January 20, 2019.  How can people find out more about these events–get to know more about the Komikero Komiks Museum–and get in touch with you through social media?

Gerry Alanguilan: The best place to find me online is  It links to all of my other media such as the Komikero Museum, more information on the upcoming festival, Twitter, Facebook, my blog, as well as Komikero merchandise.

Kevin Ray Valentino: I try to consolidate all of my social medial accounts under one account name: KevRayVal (Twitter and Facebook).

Tedi Gustilo Villasor: Thank you both and I hope to talk to you both again really soon.  Bye!
