I rarely go to big malls, but when I do I always head for the bookstores — especially those who are selling budget books. As I was scanning this particular bookstore for cheap coffee table books, I saw a middle aged man who is scanning a reference book. Like my usual self, I did not talk to that man but directly stared at the book he’s holding (rude, I know). So, this man, acknowledged my need to look at the book and handed it to me. We talked about costumes and designs until he said that he creates comics. Of course, one could just imagine my excitement as we traded inputs and techniques, view about the art world and whatnot.
The two of us went to sit in the food court to talk more… I introduced Karma Kolektib and showed him some of my work and in turn, he drew this awesome character in my sketch book.
If you’re wondering who the wonderful artist is, you can check out Mr. Ricardo “Ricky” Perez on Facebook.
