When the #VisibleWomen and #artPH hashtags were circulating, local Twitter was, for the lack of a better word, shookt. Suddenly it was so easy to see just how much talent we have locally. The likes and RT’s helped lots of aspiring artists get connected to people who appreciate their work.
But before Twitter (and social media in general) became an avenue for artists and creators to widely share their work, we had events like Indieket. Established in 2012, Komikon Indieket was meant to be a venue for independent writers and artists to share their work. We got a hold of some zines that were sold at the recently concluded Indieket at the Bayanihan Center in Pasig.
We’ve reviewed five zines from YS contributors Ross Du and Mich Cervantes, new faces Anna Marcelo and Kaila M., as well as an oldie but a goodie from Oliver Pulumbarit and John Toledo.
