This time with Apol and Pilar. Yes. Just sketched this thing out while hanging with em, then they drew me, then I just scanned and colored the thing. I redrew the sketch on my computer, and here we are. Yes.
Process of one of the covers for Secrets of the Universe! The pencils for this was done by Cel with digital colors and inks by me.
It’s called SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE! Here are the covers by me, Apol and Cel.
It’s modified Exquisite Corpse comics with friends Manix Abrera, Celina de Guzman, and Josel Nicolas ! Come and check it out if you’d like. YEAH!
I got featured in Status Magazine this month! They ask me about my pursuit of art, comics, and stuff. The piece in the magazine is the bythe most excellent Petra Magno.
Did some live art over at the City of Man exhibit we had last night. This was something I wanted to do as a piece for the show but didn’t have the time to work on it, but figured it was a neat concept to try out as a live-art-on-the-spot-type-of-deal. Book me for gigs, guys. I can totally do stuff like this while you enjoy music from bands and socializing.
Concept stuff! I figured that Manila without the L was MANIA and that sort of encapsulates my feelings sometimes with all the things happening in this big city, the frustration, the anger, a bunch of stuff.
I asked a bunch of people for suggestions for things that feel manic or crazy in Manila and drew some of em like the billboards, MMDA officers, barkers, Anne Curtis billboards, the constant looming threat of death, the deceased animals on the road, the roaches, the traffic, the commercialism, just a bunch of uglier things around Manila.

Another portrait trade, this time with the most excellent, amazingly talented Mich Cervantes who drew that portrait when I was actually wearing that burger shirt. Eerie. Check out her stuff at http://themichlife.tumblr.com/
SHE’S ONLY 17??!?!?!
I’ve decided to make this a continuing side project between artist friends who happen to make amazing art. You can view all of them so far here.
Portrait Trades 2013, or Portrades? Portrades sounds bad. Whichever catches on.
