I'm fond of the Dia dela Muerte not because I love morbid things but because I'm amazed by how the colors celebrated the grim of the dead. My intentions were really not to make bookmarks out of these drawings. I was just experimenting on combining the Russian matryoshka dolls with Mexico's festival of the dead. I cut one then, voila! I have a new bookmark.

H. P. Lovecraft's "Call of Cthulhu" resurrected my curiosity of tentacles after my first encounter with the Pirates of the Caribbean. There's this sort of an inner call for me to create something absurd and love it.
The guy above comes from a photo in a magazine my friend Krizzia and I bought from Booksale. The tentacles are from me. Ash would say I have a fetish for tentacles. hahahaha

Saysayán sa samô an gabós Kadunung
Mgá agi-aging suanoy ni Handióng,
Pirak mong talasan isabáy tugtugón
Mahamís, ngangalsán padapit kan Aslong
Si Kadunung tolos uyang kasimbagán:
Paghinanyóg kamó, aking Kabikolan,
Mangá kasaysayan kan daga na guráng,
Erokan ni Handióng panóng kagayonan.
---from the epic Ibalong

This is my first exhibit in Ateneo and I'm so excited. Sir Dennis and I are currently finishing our pieces of Bikolano mythological characters. Our entire collection are in black and white. Line art demands time and lots of inspiration.
The opening of the exhibit is on July 23, 2012 at 4:30 in the afternoon. There will be a cocktail. So please come!
