J.R. Garcia (born April 4, 1991 in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.) widely known as Ninoy Baltazar, is a Filipino video animator in Youtube. He makes video animations of different songs from local/foreign singers/band, out from MS Paint and Windows Movie Maker . Aside from this, he is also a comic strip creator, blogger, deviant artist and a director and producer on his own production, nin0ybaltazar09 PRODUCTIONS in YouTube.
Ninoy Baltazar came about when the artist was at his high school days. He was at his 2nd year high school when he heard it from a group of his classmates who were fond of mentioning a name Ninoy Baltazar, which came from a combined name of a Philippine senator Benigno Simeon "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr. and Filipino poet Francisco Baltazar. And from there, he used it as his pseudonym in his artworks (but he was not officially using it during his high school days). He used that pen name when he entered college at San Juan (2007) to conceal his identity from his first love interest named Cammyl..
Ninoy Baltazar was first used in his literary works such as poems and short stories, bitter for having been turned down by his first love interest, he stopped writing altogether. May 2008 when Ninoy Baltazar created an account in Youtube and become a part of a Youtube community. Ninoy got interested in video animation on April 2009 after he saw many video animations out from stick figures in Youtube. The works of 'firstkissgoodbye' motivated him to take this challenge and make his own animations but by cartooning rather that stick figures. His first experimental video animation, I Wish You Knew This Song Was About You by Daphne Loves Derby , was successfully made and through this, he started to continue making more video animations. He also made his own logo for his official production, nin0ybaltazar09 PRODUCTIONS and this is the start of his career.
