AGOS

As a serious comics fan, I was delighted to see a comic strip published in the Filippino newspaper Tempo. The adventure comic strip is titled Agos. Its creators are Richel G. Dorotan & Louie Celerio. Sadly, I am not able to translate the language but it is good to see some rather nice artwork nevertheless.

I am quite fond of Filippino komik artists who went on to work for DC and Marvel comics, particularly in the 1970s and '80s. Artists such as Alfredo Alcala, Mar Amongo, Ernie Chan, Alex Niño, Nestor Redondo, and Gerry Talaoc (to name a few).

If you type "Philippine comics" in the Google Images search engine you will see a wealth of amazing Filippino art.

SPERRY ROBOT SMRT-1

Advertisement published in the National Geographic, December 1984 :

We do a lot more at Epcot Center than make SMRT-1smart.

The robot's name is SMRT-1, (pronounced "smart one"). He can recognize your voice, and challenge you to a variety of exciting games. And we're the power behind him.

Along with robot power, our computers provide continuous monitoring of every attraction at Epcot Center. They oversee security and energy management throughout the Walt Disney World resort. And over 18,000 Walt Disney World employees depend on them for up-to-the-minute work schedules based on that day's actual number of guests.

We help bring imagination to life at Epcot Center, and we're helping its dreams, from robotics to energy management, become realities worldwide.

ART - DINOSAURS

I love reading about Dinosaurs. I enjoy watching documentaries about them, and as a kid (even to this day) I enjoy reading comics with dinosaurs as part of the story. And ... I really appreciate artists who illustrate these long ago and extinct creatures, for example, check out like this piece of art from the cover of the publication Science Illustrated, Issue 20, November 2012. Unfortunately, the artist is uncredited. The cover story : World Eaters - Were the sauropods evolution's greatest triump?.

ADVERTISING ARTWORK - BENSON AND HEDGES

Here's an unusual advertisement promoting the cigarettes Benson and Hedges. This advertisement was one of the seven 'mysterious' ads published during the Benson and Hedges campaign during 1989-1990.
