Our Yearly Projects
Participation in Komiket and Komikon
Every school year, BLINK tables at four major local conventions: October Komiket, November Komikon, February Komiket, and Summer Komikon. At these conventions, BLINK sells the original komiks and merchandise we produce, such as our semestral zines and the BLINK Originals komiks. Aside from our own merchandise, we also open the table to our members who might want to sell their own merchandise alongside us -- whether they be stickers, prints, charms, or even original komiks!
Every semester, BLINK creates a zine consisting of multiple short komiks and artworks revolving around a central theme. These short komiks and artworks are made over the course of several weeks by our members themselves, with our deliberation and guidance. When the zine is completed, we hold a launch to celebrate the creations of our members and to share their works with the Ateneo community!
Every school year, BLINK gives our members the opportunity to work alongside us in creating their own original komik. At the end of the first semester, we accept pitches from our members, which serve as the starting point for their original komiks. For the following three months, we guide our members through the process of turning their komik from idea to reality. After the komiks have been made, we choose one to publish on our Facebook page, as well as in print!
