Ben Templesmith and vampires in CSB

just met Ben Templesmith yesterday during his workshop in DLS CSB. the workshop was great and got a learn a lot of stuff on how Ben do those designs and comic craft in his own style. it was amazing and the people liked watching him do an artwork made from traditional pencils, photos, image references, layering and then graphic designing.

its a great experience as he say that his style aren’t that traditional for comics but this is his style and he liked it the way it represented when turned into comics and after that turned into a live action movie (30 days of night)

the room at SDA bldg of DLS CSB is jampacked with crowd of students and professional, who went there to meet Ben and also listen to his lecture on how he do his style in comics.

also attending the workshop are our local comic creators and artists and it was like a comic convention for a day because everyone was there.

this is my photo printed desktop wallpaper that I grabbed from Ben’s flickr hehhhe

the good thing is that the book was sold there at 10% off and Fullybooked announced that if you bought 2 books you get 20% off hahhaha, we grabbed our own copies, and all of the books has Ben’s signature, but its cool to have him sign our copies.

after the Ben lecture, Benjie Marasigan tour us inside the gigantic fortress hahaah, i just call it SDF like Macross and not SDA bldg. It was a one cool venue for arts.
we all drolled after seeing all this equipment. hi speed scanners, PC, Macs, digi video cam, and the humongous Green Room.

thanks to Fullybooked for bringing Ben here in Manila and also thanks again to them for making us read and go back loving the comics, and also thanks to the DLS CSB people, MCO, MMA and to Ben.
