A Celebration
My entry for the 2014 ASEAN Youth Competition. Myanmar won the whole competition but it still is an honor to represent my country. Thank you to the whole ASEAN community for this opportunity, and to all our friends around the world who have helped the victims of the typhoon Yolanda - this piece is inspired by that incredible story.

We Are Golden!

Teenage dreams in a teenage circus
Running around like a clown on purpose
Who gives a damn about the family you come from?
No giving up when you’re young and you want some

Running around again
Running for running

Para sa Barangay!
An artwork inspired by the original label of Ginebra San Miguel - Marca Demonio by Fernando Amorsolo, a commissioned piece for my friend Ryan Giron. Definitely one of the most challenging works I had. It took me months to finish this because I just can’t concentrate on it in just one sitting because of the details.

Panalangin
My entry for the 2014 Manila Bulletin ”MBSketch” On-the-spot sketching competition held at the Ayala Triangle Garden. This year’s theme is Made in the Philippines. Didn’t win but I enjoyed it, definitely on-the-spot contests are my weakness. I didn’t like the end product of this piece, should have stopped at this moment. Congrats to the winners :D!

Practicing on different subjects, colors and pattern. Thought of using Lupita Nyong’o as a subject because she’s awesome. :D

Dracarys!
Just a quick random portrait. Decided to explore acrylic again after years of not using it. It was pretty challenging :l
Anwyay, couldn’t wait for the next episode!

I had a great time with my Betamaks friends Kay, Mark and Jason at Komikon 2013 at Bayanihan Center. This year’s theme is BUKADKAD (blossoming). It really feels great to have a lot of people buy and support our works which we really worked hard. We almost sold everything and i’d like to thank everyone who dropped by our table. Hope to meet more awesome people on next year’s Komikon!





A portrait I made for my officemate Aries who celebrated his 5th year anniversary in Burnett. (Each celebrator gets to pick an artist to make a portrait, and he chose me) :D! Congrats Aries, hope you liked this!
