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 or losing at overcomplicated board games.

Waste no time...drop a line!

Just had to put 2 illustrators on my mental "Never Hire Again" list. The reasons:

- Inability to follow directions
- Lateness / MIA
