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!

In software engineering, rubber duck debugging is a method of debugging code. The name is a reference to a story in which a programmer would carry around a rubber duck and debug their code by forcing themselves to explain it, line-by-line, to the duck. #workinprogress

Bit staggered by the number of folks who think this is a good time to get in touch asking for unpaid work. Normally, there’s a request every few months. Currently getting one every few days. Not that it’s ever the time, but my dudes, this is REALLY not the time.

While under quarantine, I felt inspired to make this animated portrait of Frida Kahlo this week as her art was often about her own personal isolation
