My Other Half for My Better Half

I just wanted to play with the idea of half-subs forming a heart. The text/copy is made by combining half-circles, rectangles (half-square :P) and right triangles together.
Worked on a “designer” takeaway bags for Saatchi Singapore’s new subway campaign.  JP Cuison also made a couple of awesome illustrations for the campaign. The AD for the project was Kimmy De Leon. Yey!

Janelia Research Campus

I was able to work with Pentagram again for another illustration project. This time it’s a poster series for Janelia Research Campus’ various programs. I knew that there was going to be a good chunk of copy/text in the posters so I wanted to make the illustrations complement the layout. I used negative space, graphical lines and curves to complete the whole look. :)


Hope y’all like it. Yey!

I worked on an illustration for HHMI Bulletin’s Fall 2014 Issue with Luke Hayman’s team at Pentagram. The article was about the different mysteries of the brain. 
I wanted to show the form of the brain by using different constellations and heavenly bodies to show. It’s based on the idea that the brain is as mysterious, massive and amazing as space.

The Death of PrivacyArticle Link
I made an illustration for The Guardian’s article on privacy. I wanted to capture the weight of the issue by setting a dark and brooding mood. The idea for the visual was to show a guy surfing a social networking website. Instead of his webcam turning on, it’s replaced by a surveillance camera capturing his face and every move.
I tried a different execution for this one as a sort of experiment for a personal project I’m currently working on. :)
—Lastly, there’s a feature of me at Creative Review. Yey! Much thanks. :)

Due to an emergency me and Dang weren’t able to attend the workshop in CDO.

Wohoo! Go Jo & Rax!

plus63:

Plus63’s designers, Jo and Rax, are currently in Cagayan de Oro for 1 week to help facilitate a workshop on Disaster Preparedness in partnership with Japan Foundation.

"The objective of the workshop is to develop a program that can help the children of CDO prepare better in the event of a calamity. We (Plus63) were tapped by Japan Foundation to help them brand the program as a whole."

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. #
