Comics for Magbunyi: 30 Taon ng Notre Dame de Sion sa Pilipinas
English title: Rejoice! 30 Years of Notre Dame De Sion in the PhilippinesRead the anthology here: Get to know the Sion Philippines community
Gantala Press posts about the book: 1 & 2 & 3
From June to July 2020, I was given the wonderful opportunity to work together with Gantala Press to create comics about the Sisters of Notre Dame De Sion. The pages are part of Magbunyi: 30 Taon ng Notre Dame de Sion sa Pilipinas, a comics anthology which honors the missionary work that the sisters have been doing in the Philippines for the last 30 years.
I had the pleasure of working on the stories of Sister Oonah, Sister Anne, and Sister Maria. Each story is from their perspective, and it warms my Catholic heart to be part of something that puts a spotlight on fellow ladies of the Faith in action!
Working on these comics was a straightforward (and colorful!) process. After receiving the script, I was given the freedom to break down the text into pages and play with the layout. After the sketches were approved, I submitted each story as I completed them.
All pages were produced digitally via Clipstudio Paint.
The image gallery below has the first pages for the 3 stories I worked on. The last image is a process gif showing the sketch, line art, and color stages of a page.
