Even before my parents adopted me from the Philippines, I was always drawing; I preferred a blank piece of paper over a coloring book. Throughout childhood, I always looked forward to drawing emotional Xmas gifts for family, or watching friends laugh over my mini-comics in their birthday cards. This didn't exclude my obsession in drawing my favorite Disney/videogame characters repeatedly (and handing them out to my 5th grade classmates). My constant theme of action and adventure came from my passion for parkour and Ninja Warrior, and my variety of interesting characters came from my fellow athletes or everyday people I befriended. My style was highly influenced by animated series like The Last Airbender, Urbance, Disney's Tron: Uprising, or in general, anime, videogames, Disney, Dreamworks, and Pixar.

I truly enjoy nothing more than character design, because I feel like a story cannot exist without a relatable character. My designs demonstrate my constant observation of variety. Their shapes, expressions, and various line-work bring to life gesture and vivacious personality that match their story backgrounds. Highly influenced by Disney's rules of shape and theme, they are their own fluid style with believable anatomy. This enables me to draw them quickly in storyboards and animatics, to get the story and emotions across.

I hope my characters affect people the same way people affect my characters. Read Less
