Born in the Phillipines in 1978 I have been sketching
since I realised I could hold a pen, selling my first sketches to fellow
classmates for as much as their lunch money.
I haven't stopped doodling since, instead I have become a child in a candy
store soon as I learned of various ways to create images. Be it mono prints,
acrylic on canvas, pen + ink, charcoal, Freehand, Photoshop, and not forgetting
the humble pencil.Graphic Design provides a medium for my illustrations
to be exposed. It is combining these elements that has always proved as
both challenging and most exciting to me. Currently I'm working as a Freelance
Designer + Illustrator.I'm also in the middle of setting up my own label
in printing T-shirts working closely with a Fashion Designer.Previous
work I have been involved in includes music poster + flyer design, CD
cover, commision through exhibitions, and illustrations for web.
I am Graphic designer with passion for illustration. The challenge for
me is combining my illustrations with designing flyers, posters, CD covers,
web, and t shirts. I have also sold some artwork through exhibition. My
inspiration comes from any interesting images, Japanese screen prints,
Mucha,stickers + graffiti - covered street posts, movies/animation....the
world is my oyster and anything goes, especially if it involves acrylics,
charcoal, Macs, Freehand, Quark + sweet chilli sauce.
currently working as a magazine designer, but always in search of freelance
