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!

How does this keep happening, with Malika Favre also getting ripped off this week?

Does nobody think first anymore about plagiarism or hosting contests that fleece the artist? We ask the same of arty platforms that write about obvious examples of both w/out pause for thought... https://t.co/EDEEnfTTyz

This project by agency Everland praised on @creativeboommag today is a prime example of how image banks like @Shutterstock are enabling shameless copies to be sold. What did Everland actually designed? Nothing. They bought a cheap version of my work and call themselves creatives.

I can't stand interviewers, who need to interrupt to make sure everyone knows that they're as smart as their guest.

Speaking of: Any #podcast recommendations with really skilled hosts?

@JemVenn @hannahlock Idea: Getting a pet parrot and teaching it to say things like "The composition doesn't work" or "I'm not sure if that color conveys the right tone"
