This is an attempted portrait/caricature drawing for a colleague of mine, Juan Manuel, on his FACEBOOK graffitti wall. After doing this, i realized how desperately i needed to buy a wacom tablet as drawing with a mouse is not too fun at all. i'm really behind with the times. My being left handed did not help at all because to draw with the mouse, i had to use my right hand which is my non-drawing hand. He liked it though which was satisfying to me. But i intend to make a comeback once i buy my first tablet. Until then, it's my mouse and my non-drawing hand.

character designs- winter '03

i am moving to newmarket where i bought my first house (home for my family) and so while in the midst of the busy packing and everything, i have unearthed some stuff from my max the mutt days. from time to time tho, i would post these what i would call 'fillers' just to bring life to these drawings. it travels me back in time and relive happy memories.

filipino idol

jansen and comic great-whilce portacio at the toronto comicon (april 18). this is a long time coming and very worthwhile. getting to meet him is like a childhood dream come true. i'm high now with some lethal dose of inspiration to start drawing again...priceless!

quick sketch- professor x

i was playing with head shapes and somehow i thought that a skinny elongated head would fit him well.

quick sketch- superman

i still haven't figured out yet as to why i keep drawing superman whenever i get a chance of a blank piece of paper and pen. i scanned this piece and put it on treshold hence, the darker lines. i hope the tilt of the head didn't make it more like a model pose. i still wanna keep a more hero like stance.

jim lee moment

this was taken on last summers fan expo at the mtcc. jim lee is the man and a living legend, (for me personally). it was this artist that sparked my interest in comicbooks a while back ago while growing up in the philippines. who'd knew i'd get a chance to meet him in person and in canada too. definitely a highlight for me.
