Filipino artist Gerry Alanguilan dies at 51

ABS-CBN News reported that Gerry Alanguilan, a noted comics artist from the Philippines who worked for DC/Marvel in the 1990s, has passed away at 51 years age. It says here:
In an interview released in 2011 about Elmer, Alanguilan had this to say about his creative process, and how his work is received. “It’s my personal creative belief that I do not tailor my work to target any specific audience or market. I just do the story I believe in, any story that I feel like telling at the time. If I do my best writing and drawing it, I know there are people out there who will appreciate it for what it is.”
This is just what's missing in today's mainstream US industry. Creators who'll develop a merit-based story marketed and promoted based on precisely that approach. Today's artists and writers would do well to take note of what Alanguilan stated years before, and recognize this is how to write a story in any entertainment medium.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
