INK Flipping: Ang INK Catalogs over the years

The Ang INK (Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan) catalog is a DIY piece made by the members and given to various companies and publications who may need the services of an illustrator. It’s a self-promo piece and sadly, it has seen better days. Over the years, the catalog has gotten thinner and thinner. Extending deadlines never seems to help as fewer and fewer members bother to make entries.

There used to be a time when entries by Pepper Roxas and Robert Alejandro were lovely little fold-out affairs. Having seen their entries when I was new member inspired me to make my own entries different every year.

For the INK Orientation Seminar yesterday, Fran Alvarez made a short video (shot and edited with her iPhone 4S no less) showcasing some INK Catalogs over the years. Here’s hoping it inspires both old and new members to submit their own exciting entries.

  1. Hi Rommel,
    Thanks for sharing this. I always enjoy going through the INK catalogs. It’s fun seeing how the artists’ styles have changed through the years. Did INK produce a catalog for 2011? We didn’t receive one. We have a file of INK catalogs going as far back as 1999 🙂

    Happy International Children’s Book Day!

    1. Hi Joanna,

      Thanks for dropping by. Yup, we made a catalog for 2011 but it wasn’t as well disseminated. We’ll send you a copy right away. We’re also working on the 2012 edition which (we hope) will be a bit better. 🙂
