Literature
Phaniltom (The Song Parody)
PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
(sung to the tune of "Alexander Hamilton" from Hamilton, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda)
DAROGA:

How's a soprano-chasing, disfigured son of a
mason, who's living far beneath the
Opera House where the Parisians do promenade
in fine brocade and glitter

become a vocal coach behind a mirror?


RAOUL:

This mask-wearing Op'ra Ghost with regal bearing
spent his youth faring for himself and preparing
for a life of wayfaring
'cuz his folks were uncaring
By fifteen, he was a master of arts no point comparing


FIRMIN:

Went 'round the world to learn but soon his bridges were all crossed
and burned at every turn because he kept his guard up
Resigned, he retired to Paris but then one day
he got to build a new opera house with Charles Garnier

ANDRÉ:

Then the Commune came, and devastation reigned

Our man saw his future drip, dripping down the drain

Killed off some punk insurgents, shouted

Christine: Ali Ewoldt
The latest in my Phantom Portraits series features Ali Ewoldt, the first Asian-American Christine on Broadway. As a fellow Filipino, it was of particular significance to me that someone of our ethnicity has the opportunity to play such a iconic role in my favorite musical. The illustration was presented to Ms. Ewoldt at the stage door after the January 26, 2018 performance.

Sorry for the lack of updates. If the upload feature didn't routinely stall on me, I'd add more artwork.
