Made on an iPad Air with Procreate and an Adonit Jot Touch 4.
Tried it out mostly because I was curious about the capabilities and limitations of the iPad and its apps and accessories when it comes to possibly making art. Right now, I’m still figuring out how much I can do with it but figured I’d start with something small in the usual vein of what I do. I bought one thinking I could now have something to carry around to draft art. Then I figured I could see how far I could take it.
It’s not perfect but it’s pretty amazing, I think, how tinkering with the brushes til I got comfortable enough with it how natural it felt and I could achieve something I would say I could usually do on a desktop.
a poster I did for the Rakenrol dibidi launch party happening this Saturday, with posters by Everywhere We Shoot! and Apol Sta. Maria,
There’ll be a free screening of the film at Fully Booked High Street at 7pm with a screening of the short film Mascot, an after party at ATTRACTION! REACTION! presents: RAKENROL (the dibidi launch afterparty), and an After After Party over at Black Market with the Diegos after the after party.
‘Pinoy Komiks: An anthology collecting comics from some of the best indie cartoonists in the Philippines, as well as cartoonists from around the world ‘
When people think of comics, they typically think of American super heroes, Japanese manga or Franco-Belgian bande dessinée. Unfortunately the world of Filipino indie comics rarely crosses the radar of the Western world, which truly is a shame. There is so much exciting work coming out of the Philippines, and we feel it is about time everyone started paying attention.
This book focuses on Filipino artists both from within the Philippines as well as those working outside of the country. It features a wide array of artists from popular web cartoonists, indie creators and even industry professionals working for big international publishers (we can’t name names!) We think you will be blown-away by the talent you will find in these pages.’

One of the first Kickstarter things I’ve gotten involved in. In return for some cash I could draw something for you custom made and what not, plus you get a book of some of the finest Filipino indie comics talent. The short story I made with Mihk Vergara is in this, too.
Thanks to Adam Pasion for getting me involved with this rad project. Hope people can get on board and support it because well, it could be something of a gateway for people to get into the Filipino Komiks Scene and also get us exposed more outside the country we love so much.
My Favorite Christmas
a short comic written by Mihk Vergara, and drawn by me
something I made a year ago when I was going through some stuff.
my friend Owel asked me to take a song from his band and try and draw something like that series of BREAK UP 2013 illustrations I did earlier that year. I picked the song Taksil by Ang Bandang Shirley for obvious reasons of what I was thinking and how I felt at the time. It’s the song I couldn’t get out of my head to a certain degree.
Taksil translates to traitor or betrayer. The song talks about infidelity, dealing with someone who’s hurt you in that way. It goes on for a bit asking does the person still love you, how did this happen, do they still love you, how did this happen? Just the usual thoughts when you think about someone being unfaithful whom you love. It ends eventually bargaining to the other person about who hasn’t done something wrong, please don’t leave because of your mistake. Well my interpretation anyway. It’s a great song.
Not sure if Owel’s doing anything with it anymore so I decided to post it for reasons of, well, I just remembered it existed, and that the date of when this whole messy break up thing is coming up making it officially a year since that happened. Bums me out thinking how that turned out.
Great job, Rob. Here’s to that.
2013 (In stuff I drew this year.)
It is New Year’s and I guess it’s time to look back on how I did this year. Holy Crap did I draw a bunch of stuff.
This year was a year of firsts for me: ( first breakup, first exhibit, first job, first album cover) and I’m strangely looking forward to 2014 compared to where I was last year, fearful of the future. I feel like I’m a different person. Strange how you see how much you’ve grown. I don’t know. I feel different I suppose.
Art. Oh Art, I love you. Never leave me.
