Winter cleaning

November 15, 2014News

With my sister leaving New York in a few weeks, I’ve “inherited” a lot of stuff. A lot of stuff I don’t want. Combine that with the fact I also own useless things, I had a serious need to unload a lot of crap. Today, I went to Best Buy to recycle a couple of … Read More

Crazy Comicfestathon is over

November 8, 2014News

I’m officially done with festivals for 2014, but more importantly, I’ve survived “Crazy Comicfestathon”. Crazy Comicfestathon is what I decided to call the three festivals I’ve gone to in one month, and let met tell you something: I’ll never do that again. But actually, my fall 2014 festival lineup should also include the New York … Read More

I’ve been crazy busy these past couple of weeks, working for the lovely people at Edelman and now Publicis. So this post is going to be very short: exhibiting at Comic Arts Brooklyn this Saturday. This is the last festival in the “crazy three festivals in a month-athon” that I started early October. It’s also … Read More

Locust Moon report

October 27, 2014Exhibitions

Here’s the report of the fest… I wonder why I do these after each festivals? Is it even necessary? No point questioning it now. Here goes my story of this past Saturday. Woke up bright and early at 5:00 am and rode the subway to get to Penn Station. This was my first time riding … Read More

APE 2014 aftermath

October 16, 2014News

APE came and went, thanks to everyone who came by the table. I was thinking a lot while in San Francisco. Mostly thinking about money and goals. Whenever I go to festivals, I’m forced to think about my art-making as a business, which I don’t particularly enjoy. I should be happy that people buy my … Read More

Going to San Francisco this weekend

October 2, 2014Exhibitions, News

Going to the Alternative Press Expo once again this year. I’ll be at table 1020 alongside Alden Viguilla who I’ve managed to drag into this venture. If we don’t do well, he’s going to hate me forever, so please stop by our table 🙂 This is my second time at this festival, so hopefully I … Read More

New York Art Book Fair 2014

September 27, 2014Exhibitions

Just came back from the New York Art Book Fair. I have one word to describe the experience: oppressive. Oppressive art, oppressive crowds, oppressive music, oppressive heat, just an awful experience for me. Let me back up and say a couple of things first. First I applied for a table at the fair but didn’t … Read More

Festival and site news

I finally added some pieces to the portfolio section of my site. I added three new books to the illustration portion and updated the photos for my “Gannets” pop-up book which were too blurry. I also added a presentation to the Design section of my site. I would like to add more presentations to my … Read More

Lemur Carousel book completed!

July 30, 2014Animals, New art work

Just completed a new pop-up book, to replace my retired “Gannet” pop-up book. The subject is lemurs, specifically black and white ruffed lemurs, which I chose because they’re on display in the Central Park Zoo. I was struggling to find a story for this book. Granted, the last carousel book doesn’t have much of a … Read More
