Comics, books, zines, stickers, art prints, postcards, bookmarks, knickknacks – Elbikon 2017 in a nutshell. For four years now, the Graphic Literature Guild (GLG), a student organization from the University of the Philippines Los Baños, has been hosting Elbikon, each year bigger than the last. Over a hundred exhibitors participated this year: well-known and emerging comics artists, graphic artists, illustrators, other visual artists, and makers of handmade trinkets. The UPLB Baker Memorial Hall was teeming with artwork made through blood, sweat, and tears.
