Yey! Thanks Rogue Magazine for asking me to make a tribute piece for Vicente Manansala! :) Yey!Here’s what I wrote:
Vicente Manansala and other Filipino National Artists (and many more awesome creative people) have been sources of inspiration for my illustration work. I like the way he uses shapes, patterns and colors in his compositions, especially his use of layered transparencies of paint to create lush layers of color. In terms of subject matter, I like how he brings together rural and urban imagery that tell an intriguing story.
For Manansala’s painting entitled “Kalabaw”, it is reintroduced as a beast with a burden. Instead of the cityscape passively sitting in the background, it submits its fate on the capacity of the animal to endure. Inspired by the mythic “World Turtle” and Ron Herron’s (of Archigram) “Walking City”, I wanted to show the carabao as a big mass of land carrying a growing city on its back. #

Dante’s Infernograph
I made an illustration for the recent issue of Rogue Magazine. The article was about the 9-levels of Hell (ala Dante’s Inferno) featuring TV’s anti-heroes and villains. My idea was to show a big TV wall with the devil (not to be mistaken as Batman :p) in the foreground watching all the shows.
