My Bio
Current Residence: Quezon City, Philippines
I am the sword in the darkness.
I am the watcher on the walls.
I am the fire that burns against the cold,
the light that brings the dawn,
the horn that wakes the sleepers,
the shield that guards the realms of men.

I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.

GLASS FEATHERS and other things

GLASS FEATHERS and other things

My studio, The Acid House, has an upcoming video art exhibit Saturday, March 26 2011 at PABLO Gallery FORT. You can check out all the details in here. For those who can come, please do! Work is continuing with The Paper Vandals for our anthology comic. Hope we can release it this year, because I heard everything in the world ends by 2012.

Rogue Magazine - Top 16 Pinoy Illustrators

I was lucky enough to be included in Rogue Magazine's recent feature on the Top 16 Illustrators in the Philippines today. Hope you can buy yourself a copy since a lot of the other featured artists are really amazing, some of which I also follow myself. This is where I was asked to work on a self-portrait, that's why I did mine months ago, and the full transcript of the interview is viewable in Rogue's site.

Crap. Typhoon Ondoy / Ketsena kicked us hard on the ass. Much of Manila was flooded, and although rescue efforts are finally getting somewhere now, a lot of people are still spending time on their roofs, waiting for help. Our hearts go out to all the Pinoys severely affected by Typhoon Ondoy. Ondoy dropped 455mm of rainfall in the span of 24 hours, almost double that of Hurricane Katrina (250mm). If there's anyone who can see this through, it's us Filipinos, we can do this. Don't lose hope! For our part, we are going out today to do groceries and buy basic utilities that we can donate to Sagip Kapamilya, a foundation that will then deliver

A question if a personj was character  in the holy uerte for Halloween and others come out with a black tunic, other characters are called death precepts, another character that brings a scythe and has many similarities apart from the physical and that appears in a anime called angels of death if I like these characters would make me a believer?
