A Filipino/Italian illustrator living in Berlin.

I dabbled forever in art and many of its malformed afterbirths before finally taking a shot in editorial illustration,
which I couldn't be more happy with.

My style is a bastard of 1930 goldenage surrealism and 2019 vector art dilettantism. I like bright colors telling me terrible things.
Favorite subjects to draw center timeless topics such as power, money, science, death, love and fried chicken.

Outside of work you usually find me developing vegan recipes, losing at overcomplicated board games or starring at a dead tree, hallucinating.
(I wanted to say something more interesting than reading.)

Waste no time...drop a line!

As always, I'm exhausted by the attempt by some to make baseless accusations against others in the form of a question. "I'm just asking questions!" It's irresponsible. If there is evidence of misconduct, verify the evidence and stand behind your accusation.

Conversation with HK friend:

Me: How do you like HK's chances?

Friend: We're gonna lose but I'm glad we're fighting because it's the right thing to do.

This is why I want to slap Americans who weigh the cost of doing the right thing.
