I believe when I say Cheer Up, Emo Kid you will need no introduction. This Filipino-Canadian comic artist named Enzo made us all laugh at one point or the other. And now he is here to do it once again with his printed volume! “Best Of” Kickstarter Comic Collection is a 8.5×5.5″ softcover volume that contains 200+ full-colour pages of the best comics from 2012 to 2016. It also contains a wealth of bonus content, extra artwork, and guest art from some of the coolest people in webcomics!
Myself in one sentence? This one is hard! I guess I would say… I’m a Filipino-Canadian webcomic artist who has wanted to draw penis jokes and put them on the internet his entire life, and now it’s happening for real.
My main source of inspiration comes from real life. Whenever I encounter a funny situation in my life I immediately write it down so I can remember it later. A big example of this are my relationship comics. One time I walked into the bathroom and my partner was shaving her legs through the holes in her ripped jeans. I couldn’t stop laughing. Stuff like that just writes itself.
I really like clean lines and solid colours. I was never really good at painting or blending or working with colours at all for that matter. Which is why my comic contains lots of gray. It took a long time for me to reach a point where I was happy with it, and I think I’m pretty happy with it now.
I’m working on a new medieval fantasy webcomic with some friends. It is called Dungeon Construction. It’s about a construction company struggling to make their adventure-building business succeed. It all happens in a realm where nobody has raised a sword in a hundred years. The first three pages are out right now, we’re trying to gauge people’s interest in it! If it proves to be popular, we’ll definitely move forward with it.
