I was commissioned again to do illustrations for a wedding! The venue is in Boracay, a super popular beach here in the Philippines, and the clients wanted to have special customized tote bags and a handy little activity guidebook for each of their guests. I also drew some scenes for their wedding video, and I'm so happy my drawings got to be a part of their special day.

This book of fun facts is a collaborative effort between Adarna House and various artists of which I am very happy to be part of! We were given a number of articles to illustrate and everyone did such a great job.

I currently have an artwork up at Ayala Museum as part of Ang INK's (our local children's illustration group) 20th Anniversary Exhibit! The title is "Dreaming of the Sea" and I sincerely apologize for the blurry photo.

This is certainly different from my usual style and theme of work, but I was again inspired to do something dark and abstract like my previous "I do not know why" piece. I do have a couple more drawings like these in my sketchbook and hopefully I get to polish them all and make a whole series on this theme.

Last June 1-15, 2010, Ang InK had a mini-exhibit at Gallery 7, Eastwood Mall. The theme was to draw yourself at age seven, which was a lot of fun. I was so into ponies and unicorns then, I drew them all the time!

My entry for this year's annual INK exhibit. I illustrated a part of a story, "Anghel ng Kuwento" (Angel of Stories), written by the late children's writer, Rene O. Villanueva. It is about angels who give inspiration to children through imagination and stories. I drew this sometime in September, and the exhibit ran for two weeks in November.

New artwork for INK! This time the theme I got was "EDSA Revolution" which I found a bit challenging at first, but now I'm glad it turned out pretty good! This was published yesterday (March 2, 2009) in the Manila Bulletin.

I did some work over the holidays for Haribon's column in Manila Times. Haribon is an environmental organization and currently Ang INK has a tie-up with them. My work came out in the December 30, 2008 issue. Some of the birds I drew are endangered species like the Philippine Cockatoo. I did some research and I never knew that the Philippines has so many endemic birds (which is something to be proud of though sadly a lot of them are endangered). Since I live in the city, the only birds I often see are Maya birds, so working on this artwork was pretty interesting and educational for me.
November 30, 2008Here is my entry for TSUBIBO!, Ink's 17th annual exhibit held last October 28, 2008 at the Shangrila Mall. The theme was about the circus / carnival, and I wanted to be different so I went with a Chinese-inspired theme. I've seen a few acrobat shows when I lived in China for a year, and they were really amazing! This painting has been sold during the exhibit, so all I can show is this photograph (taken by my cousin while it was still on display).
July 27, 2008New artwork for this month's Childrens Illustrator. It's Lambo from Katekyoushi Hitman Reborn! My sisters are crazy about this show.
New artwork for INK! The theme was about students and school, so what better subject to draw than my own school! Yes, those were our high school uniforms... and lunchtime was a favorite subject of mine. This was published in today's newspaper, The Manila Bulletin!

The entries I submitted for joining Ang Ink are up! The book we had to illustrate is entitled "Naku, nakuu, nakuuu!" written by Nanoy Rafael, about a young boy expecting a sibling. I had a really busy schedule the week I was drawing these, but it was all extremely worth it.

New layout! I was aiming for a colorful-minimalistic, relaxing yet sorta warm feel, if that makes any sense. I'm quite glad how this came out. Big thanks to God for the inspiration, sir Noel for the web hosting, and everyone I've bugged about the website. Haha. Thanks for visiting! :D
