“Colored People” February 13, 2017.
FYI(to those people who reads and follows my comics, if there’s any. heh heh) I just want to give credits to the people I give thanks to on my credits/thank you page at the end of each comic that I make. Sometimes they would also suggest and give me some notions to work on for my comics. 😀
On the top is Luis Buenaventura, those links on the image are his websites and if you search him on the internet, you’ll find tons of websites that he owns. It’s like he owns the world wide web.
This is Liz Buenaventura, she’s a pro comic book colorist. Liz and Luis are siblings, Information Technology and all-around geeks. They’re part Filipino, part Brazilian.
Caroline, she’s part Chinese, part Filipino. They have their own website forum before who are mostly populated by writers and artists from the Philippines, Highfiber.org.
Up is April Tan but that is just a lookalike photo of her, that’s actually Armie Millare of the Filipino band Up Dharma Down, I don’t own this image, I just got this photo on the internet. April’s part Korean, part Chinese, part Filipino.
I guess you can call us ‘the colored people’ because of our diverse race but I’d like to think that we’re still all pure Filipinos. We’re all born and raised here in the Philippines.
My grandpa from my mother side is pure Chinese who immigrated here in the Philippines a very long time ago together with his brother so that gives me a bit of Chinese blood but I’m still pure Filipino. There are a lot of these people I’m talking about. These people I just mentioned are just to name a few. Another one of them is Jason Ortega, a sessionist drummer for another Filipino band, Slapshock. I think Luis and his friends also helped them and other Filipino rock bands have their own new music records and sponsors for their bands. Some of them are my sister’s friends and the rest are really old friends and I am waiting for them. You guys know who you are, to the mainstays and the rest of the gang. If someone related to the things I do such as comics, music, films, etc. contacted you and gave you all sorts of compensation for favors they’ve asked you, it’s them. They’re really intelligent, wealthy and powerful because of their influences and connections around the world. They even have connections all over the world who even make Hollywood movies in America.
Most of the people I give thanks to are also writers and artists like Carlo (he’s part Filipino, part American) and Mike who, after all these years is like my older brother. 😀
