All we need is Laugh (Love)



I heard this on a radio when I was on my way at work inside the FX taxi. At first I thought it was a new song of a local rap artist. As I googled the song title, it was an (not so) old song from one of my favorite artist Michael V. Aside for being well known as a comedian and singer. Many people does not know that Bitoy is also a comic book artist. Yup, that's right. And a very good one. I still remember meeting him in person at robinsons galleria (1994 or 95, forgot the exact year) while he was doing sketches for a fan. He was drawing on a backing board of a comics during the Jae Lee visit here in the Philippines. It was also the time of a talent search was held. I think that was also the time when Nick Manabat was chosen to do Cybernary.

Talaga Sir si Michael V naging comic book artist din? Galing talaga ng idol ko na 'yan... multi-talented...
And speaking of Nick Manabat, di ko alam na Filipino siya nung makabili ako ng Cybernary 1st issue... nalaman ko na lang ng naghalughog ako sa blog ni sir Gerry... sayang ang talent niya at maaga siyang pumanaw...

Oo Jayson, naging comic book artist din dati si Bitoy. Multi talented talaga. At mahusay ang mga gawa nya. "ASTER" yata yung title ng comics na nagawa nya eh, if I am not mistaken.
