Rebuild The Visayas (art for auction)

 I don't have much to offer to the grief-stricken people in my country affected by the typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda). I only have my art and hoping it will go a long way to help my grieving countrymen.

On November 29, there will be a dinner for a cause and a silent art auction at Palayok restaurant in Al Khuwair, Muscat. This event is organized by a group of Filipino expatriates here in Oman.  Please visit their Facebook page for more information.

These are my artworks that will be up for the silent auction. Help us REBUILD THE VISAYAS

Ad:Mission 2013

One of the biggest highlights of my thirty-day vacation was giving a talk in front of college students in my Alma Mater, the University of San Carlos in Cebu city. The event was called Ad: Mission, a small conference organized by the Advertising students in which they have gathered four creatives to "inspire" the future creatives in the field. The speakers were Kristy Anne Ligones (KDLIG), Victor Villanueva and Ken Onozawa. All products of the same university.

This was my first ever speaking engagement. I have refused this offer countless times but, in the end i had to say yes.

The days leading to the event made me really nervous and anxious. My audience may mostly be kids but they still have the power to judge me and i didn't wanna give a bad impression. After all, the lineup of the speakers were actually strong.
So there i was, giving my little talk and just breezed through my slide like a pro. I really thought i was possessed or something! I even thought i needed to share some more! I stood there for almost an hour, my best friend told me. Time just flew and i enjoyed every minute of it! :)

Mine was to share about being an illustrator in the newspaper. Above, I was showing a bit of my work process. (Look at my legs on the previous pic! wtf!!)

A slide from the film-maker Victor Villanueva. This guy is just so plain HILARIOUS. 

A slide from a very good friend, Kristy Anne Ligones (KDLIG)

The entrepreneur Ken Onozawa

There were so many things I have learned in that event! It was so humbling to know that so many Cebuanos and fellow Carolinians have achieved so much in an international level. I'm glad i didn't turn this gig down. 


Telephone bill

So it's been a while and i have this to share for now. I just got back from a thirty-day vacation and it has been a refreshing break. Just a few days back at work i found some bills lying on my desk which could easily pile up in to trash... but hey, since i didn't really have anything work-related to do YET... i thought i'd work on this one telephone bill! hehehe

And wallah! Time well spent.

No idle time for me. hehehe

Game of Thrones Fan art

During the Dubai Comic Con, i paid tribute to one of the most favorite TV series Game of Thrones. Daenerys was the most salable of them all! :D

Spank It

This illustration was specifically made for the Dubai Comic Convention 2013. It was my first time so i needed something that had a comic appeal and of course i had to do it my style. From out of nowhere, this idea just came to mind, two sexy super heroines in a kinky picture.

Mind you, i was very hesitant to display this, much more to display it there considering it will be in for the middle astern public. Much to surprise, it was SOLD OUT!!! :D



To those who purchased this piece of work, thank you so much! :)

This was supposed to be a series of (at least) three women comic characters for my Bondage series but i managed to finish only two. I made a third one but its a group bondage. 

Anyway, these illustrations will be printed and sold for the coming Film and Comic Con event in Dubai on April 5-6, 2013.

A downloaded floral pattern from the net that i played around with. I will probably fill it with more faces but this is it for now. It was fun!

YAY! My first illustrated alphabets from A-Z! The story that goes with this is about first-aid guide for parents. The aim was to make it fun and child-friendly.

And here's me spelling my name. 

Below are just some random three-letter words (i think some doesn't exist at all). hehehe
