Comic Con in Manila - Vinyl+Splash and Charity!

Calling all collectible and comic fans in the Philippines, especially in the vicinity of Manila!

For one day only on November 26th, a special collectible/ comic convention called Vinyl+Splash mixes street art, vinyl toys and pop-culture at Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street Gates! The street art and pop culture smash begins at 10 am and get this -- Admission is FREE!!

Red Dot Diva says that this not-to-be-missed convention boasts of a series of exciting events like live art sessions, auctions, trading blocks, raffles (and who doesn't like prizes, right?) and an art jam. Which should prove to be exciting to watch because some high-profile comic book artists are set to appear tomorrow. They include the well-loved Harvey Tolibao, Gerry Alanguilan, Lui Antonio, Bong Dazo, Lan Medina, Stephen Segovia, quietly handsome Mico Suayan, Edgar Tadeo, Mark Torres, Francis Leinil Yu, and more!

To add to the slew of comic artists, Filipino artist Tony de Zuniga has been announced as special guest. Tony de Zuniga, the co-creator of popular comic creators Jonah Hex and Black Orchid, was a 2011 San Diego Comic-Con Inkpot awardee.

Vinyl/ street art lovers will also get their share of fun, Red Dot Diva notes. There are several vinyl related guests like Bru Sim, Sarah Gaugler, Neil Pasilan, Vladimir Grutas, Bryan Araneta, Angry Woebots and JP Cuison just to name a few!!

To top it all, the event is made even more special as it endeavours to channel part of the proceeds to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in support of the fight against hunger in the Philippines, especially in the war-torn area of Mindanao. Red Dot Diva learnt that the organizers and participants aim to donate at least 100k Pesos to the needy through Vinyl+Splash.

A palette of artistic fun and a worthy cause mixed in a bowl of pop-culture. What better way than to spend a Saturday afternoon at Fully Booked tomorrow?

If any of her Filipino readers are going to Vinyl+Splash, Red Dot Diva invites them to share and post pics on the RDD blog Facebook page here!

Have Loads of  Fun, Manila peeps!
