These are some of the Simpsonized Cartoons I did last August of 2014. At this time I got 143 orders from different clients. I used photoshop and sai for these. If you need a similar commission feel free to message me. You can use this as a gift, social media avatar and many more.
Facebook reminded me that the above event is already 5 years ago. I still remember that was the time when we comic artist was featured on an art exhibit. It was fun. I am excited for another group exhibit like this.
Here are some of the Simpsonized Cartoons I did last August. These were done way back 2014. I did a lot during that time. I used digital media for these using Photoshop and Sai. If you need a similar commission feel free to message me. I always reply to inquiries.
Yesterday (March 31, 2016)
Visual art is a voiceless articulation of a heart subsumed with a raging passion. It is more than a piece hanged on the wall. It is an expression of heart, thoughts, and life experiences, combined to make an output. It may be voiceless, but it will never be hindered by the silence of its communication, aiming for a better nation through a deeper understanding of our society’s present conditions. The creativity drew on a simple canvas is by mystery inflicts pain and incurable bruise that genuinely reflects a unique understanding and perception about social reality.
BISKEG started from humble beginnings, equipped with cravings, desires, and stories. The expression of their thoughts is peculiar and free, but the impact it creates are of boundless zeal. As these young artists continuously struggle to revitalize the culture and art of their local community through their artistic representation of social advocacy, their sacrifices will never come to an end.
They follow the message of surrealist art where pure thoughts are expressed freely against all moral and social prejudices. Creativity and anguish compose the majority of their artworks that appear sinuous to many. The beauty of art they possess defies mainstream aesthetics. The statement is never clearly distinguished – it is harsh, disturbing, dark, and meant to conceal its depth – filling up futile thoughts. It is never just an eye pleasing thing, but reflects how real and imagination coincides.
They create their own little world in their minds, express their conscious thoughts and offer their selves to create meaningful contribution to human society. And therefore, to reflect the emotions stemming from the grievous life situation is their greatest reward. And just like a splint that pains, and cuts, and bleeds, BISKEG will surely leave a twinge that penetrates into the deepest sense of imagination.
Saluksok is a common term used when a very small piece of wood accidentally get inserted in the fingers causing irritating pain. This odd feeling is the basis of the group for the exhibit linking the common social issues as a “saluksok”. Common neglected issues yet creates great chaos when compounded.
SALUKSOK will be open on March 31, 6PM and will be on view until April 12 at ART GALILEIA, Second Floor Serendra Shops, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City. For Inquiries Call 0915 809 7946 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

These are some of the recent commissions I made last October. I use photoshop and Sai. Sometimes when I am getting too much for me to do, I hire the help of my friend Alvin Yanga and by brother Melchor for flats. They are now officially knowledgeable with the process and is now making the work faster than when I do it myself.
It’s the day after the Wedding and the day before the Mansamit group exhibit. Back to normal, back to everything. I am now working again. I now only have a few things to do. I officially now be able to do a legit vacation for the holidays and I am excited.
These are just two of my commissions done last October. One superhero caricature and one Simpsonsonized Cartoon. There are more of these but I plan to post them daily to have activity in my site. If you need any similar commission, just let me know.
The Mansamit Show 2 opening is today! I made I short video of the paintings.
I am really grateful to be part of the group. It makes me realize that I have too many things to learn still. And I am also keeping inspired by the group. I pray that the group will grow even more and keep the artist that are really passionate about the arts.
