I am an illustrator based in Los Angeles, where I’m surrounded by inspiration. My influences include comics, cartoons, pop culture, and much more. I’m a pretty shy guy, so art has always been a great way to express who I am and what I enjoy. I was born in the Philippines in 1987 and I moved to Los Angeles when I was three; I’ve lived in or around L.A. ever since. The cartoons I watched when I was a kid inspired me to start drawing, and at a very young age I knew that I wanted to grow up to become an artist. In May of 2009 I graduated from Otis College of Art & Design, where I learned from some amazing teachers and met a lot of awesome fellow illustrators, many of whom have become my best friends. I’m still learning a lot and my art is still evolving; it’s been a fun journey so far so it’s always exciting to see what the future holds.
