I'm a 28 year old artist who resides in the bay area. I graduated from Diablo Valley College with an A.A in Art Digital Media. This degree help built my skills in illustration, animation, graphic design, web design and video production.
I have loved drawing ever since I can remember. If not designing my own characters, I would often re-design my favorite cartoon characters when I was growing up in the Philippines. Born and raised in the Philippines, I was constantly exposed to Japanese Animation, which became my main influence as a growing artist. Other influences that made me who I am as a designer are Hayao Miyazaki, Marvel Comics and Looney Tunes.
After moving from the Philippines to the Bay Area in California, I became serious about pursuing my dreams of becoming an artist. As I entered my High School years, I prepared myself for my future by taking as much art classes as I could. During my Freshman year, I was introduced to several programs such as Adobe Photoshop with Imageready and Illustrator. Being well known for my love of drawing in High School, I was asked by our school's weekly newspaper Director if I would like to be their cartoonist/illustrator. I immediately jumped on the opportunity. My responsibilities as their artist included creating weekly comics with characters I created and illustrating for the writer's columns.
As a very versatile artist with many backgrounds, I create storyboards, illustrations, animation, concept art, graphic design, and web design as well as video editing. I've also delved into learning industry standard software, so I am always open to learning new tools to add to my belt. I am fast and efficient and I work great in teams or as an individual designer. I am detail-oriented, excellent in verbal and written communication, and I always deliver a great quality of work
