Creating a Soul Project (February 14, 2019)

02/14/2019 Leave a comment

Depending on who you are speaking with, a Soul Project could have numerous definitions.  The most important being what that particular Project means to you.  For me, a Soul Project should imbibe the following qualities:

  • That it would involve the use of your hands.
  • That a firm commitment is made to it.
    • Should you not have the requisite skills for the chosen Soul Project, a further commitment should be made to acquire them.
    • Collaborations are also an option.
  • That there be a culminating activity wherein you would unveil your Soul Project to the “world.”

A Soul Project is meant to serve as a proverbial lighthouse whenever life seems to steer your vessel off course.  It is a shining beacon that hopes to give those committed a sense of unmitigated purpose as well as that fervent hope that no matter how difficult; no matter how far the journey may be–if they persevere, they will eventually reach the destination that they were ultimately meant for.

Descending: My first speaking engagement for 2019. | Thank you FEU for this Certificate of Appreciation. | I actually signed over 100 pieces of this “Alternative Class 2019” cards. | The Lindol Comics table is now open for business!

February 8, 2019.

After braving through some heavy traffic and humid weather in the Manila/Quiapo Church area, the Lindol Comics team arrived at Far Eastern University (FEU) with more than enough time to set up our tables and get settled for our scheduled talks.

Retitled, “Usapang Komiks: Si Kenkoy, ang DI-13, at ang pagsulat ng sarili mong komiks[i],” Damy “Ian” Velasquez III, got the alternative learning class going with his talk entitled,“Si Kenkoy, DI-13 at ang “Golden Age ng Komiks.”  Ian, a former professor at FEU and the grandson of Komiks pioneers Damy and Tony Velasquez, gave an informative view of a number of landmark Filipino Komiks and their creators.

Velasquez also gave some insight on his debut indie comic book entitled, The New DI-13 (with legend Rico Rival on art).  He explained that he was inspired in part to write The New DI-13 as a means of honouring and continuing his family’s rich history in the Philippine Komiks landscape. Read more…
