far away, so close

The 2008 National Book Awards was held last Saturday night at the Ayala Museum.
TRESE: UNREPORTED MURDERS was the only nominee in its category.

We did not win.

We did not get the unanimous vote of the judges.

We did get to bring home some nifty certificates of recognition that say TRESE is the Finalist for the Best Book in Graphic Literature category.

Below: Kajo, my partner-in-crime; Nida, our publisher and willing accomplice; and me

We keep on writing.

We keep on drawing.

We try again next year.

thanks to Wella for the pictures and for being there
