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!

My left right weakness just cost me hours of work.

The single biggest failure of my life as an English Professor is being unable to shake my students' belief that what we're doing is finding "hidden meanings" in a text rather than improving the quality of attention we're giving it.

This is a sketch @Made_ByAri for @RotaryDE. Ari got sick in the last moment and AD @kruse_svenja rushed to commission other illustrators to finalize the sketches. Here my take on one of them. The whole series here:
