quark henares

He has a kick-ass collection of graphic novels, vinyl toys, movies, and music! Drool over the creative space of filmmaker Quark Henares. :)

Name: Quark Henares


Occupation: filmmaker/teacher/entrepreneur/musician/pimp

Favorite toy as a child: yung Teddy Ruxpin ng little sister ko na nilalagyan ko ng Bruce Springsteen casette tapes

Favorite toy now: the original Kidrobot big ass Gorillaz vinyl set

Turn-ons: people who make me laugh. glasses are nice. and ponytails, or nice shortish hair. and haters! :)

Turn-offs: people who don't really have passion for anything

Top 5 movies: Pulp Fiction by Quentin Tarantino, Blue Velvet by David Lynch, A Clockwork Orange by Stanley Kubrick, Se7en by David Fincher, Lost in Translation by Sofia Coppola, Singles by Cameron Crowe

Top 3 books: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller, The Tetherballs of Bougainville by Mark Leyner, Shampoo Planet by Douglas Coupland

Music you listen to: whatever gets me through the day. i recently compiled my 100 favorite songs of the decade, which you can find here--

When you’re not busy with work, what do you do in your free time? Read, go to gigs, watch movies-- which all STILL count as work in a weird sort of way.

If you were to choose a different job, what would it be? Be an architect. I have an unexplainable love for buildings and cities.

If you can have any super power, what would it be? Telekinesis. That would kick so much ass, and I'd even be able to make myself fly.

Where do you find inspiration for your creations? Everything from real events to other works of art. Most of my characters are inspired by people I either find interesting or hate, though.

Most inspiring statement/moment (heard/said/read)? something i now base my every decision on: "I wish Quark Henares would refrain from selling out again, because if he doesn't he can be one of the important ones." - Alexis Tioseco

    i love this entry. your blog is very inspiring. more power to you.

  2. i remember he was featured in a show called "space" yata yun, and he was already collecting yung table numbers from restos. he was telling viewers not to do what he's doing, kasi nga daw masama magnakaw. :p

    i love how diverse his collection is--graphic novels, books, music, toys, movies--ANG DAMI. i wanna steal his "the work of director" collection, though. :D

    and when he said his turn-offs are people who don't really have a passion for anything, na-realize ko na, oo nga, mas okay naman nga na may kinalolokohan ka (even though it doesn't make sense to other people), kaysa wala. we all gotta have a reason to get out of bed everyday. :)

  3. I am truly inspired in this blog. Thank you so much for this! Will recommend this in my blog and my plurk! Thanks again! :D

  4. Hi Mitch! I was looking for Mythology Class (A graphic novel I liked from college) and surprise this was the first search result! Awesome blog :D

  5. Great to hear ito ang first na lumabas sa google search! Hahaha! Keep on reading AAL, Aimee. :D
