Day 7 Sat 12 April 2008
Gilamon had a forum today, sort of an introduction to the Pekomik members. For those who missed it, here a what we've shared in point form:
• Who we are (see the top panel of this blog hahahaha)
• We formed Gilamon despite already working in Art Square Creation(Except for Michael, who left Art Square about a year ago but he still submits comics here), an established publisher with a string of successful comics and magazines because the works of Gilamon is very personal, experimental and most of the time not very commercial.
• Gilamon may be a very indie/underground kind of set up but we have no problem working for the mainstreams as professional comic book creators and illustrators. Like Warren Ellis who have a string of super hero comics published by Marvel("Iron Man", "Next Wave", "Astonishing X-Men") while continue to release personal works such as "Strange Killings", "Fell" & "Anna Mercury".
• We want to apply comics art in other medium. We contribute to design magazines, collaborate with designers, take part in design conferences, put up booth at rock concerts, sponsor clubbing activities. We also have a series of street wear.
