Concept artist and Illustrator
Cebu City, Philippines


A Filipino professional artist specializing in 2D illustrations with almost 5 years experience illustrating for clients overseas.

One of the many reasons I enjoy doing what I do - social business. I've been freelancing since 2012, working and collaborating closely with awesome and interesting clients of different walks of life. They have been greatly helpful to me as I to them. And it's amazing how different personalities can virtually meet and have mutual respect while sharing each other's creative mind to get the work done. To me that's magic.

I probably survived this long because of my versatility. I've illustrated variety of genres and style of numerous projects for the past years: comics, concept art, books, editorials, storyboards, you name it. However, if you asked me what I want to do, I'd say fantasy illustration, it's kind of my forte and my artistic focal point.

I’m self-taught. Everything of what I am now came from books and the internet. I always encourage myself to get invested in new techniques and technology to better my craft and my service to my clients.

Art business is tough, but it’s always worth fighting for.
