WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO BECOME A DIGITAL ARTIST?
Back when I was a kid, elementary days, my leisure time is to draw anime and to construct Zoids. I remember the time that I beg for my parents to buy me clean, thick sheet of bond papers so I can copy the anime character from my collection of teks. One of my all-time favorite is Dragon Ball. It’s really challenging for me that time to copy Gokou and Gohan Super Saiyan hair since it has a lot of different layer of edges and it challenged my eyes. I think that’s my fundamental of arts and the reason I pursued Fine Arts in FEU. My degree really masters my skill in design, traditional and digital art.
WHY FACA? WHY DID YOU CHOOSE YOUR COURSE?
FACA is one of the best schools of Digital Arts in the country, they know what the art industry needs today, they also have respected professors.

I believe that having a Web Design course in this organization will fulfill my career in Design. I’m proud being one of their students.

The Revenant. I watched the movie twice. At first, I’m intrigued on what the story is all about. Then after that I’m on cinematography, animation, music and Production. To those who don’t have any idea about the movie, The Revenant depicts the struggle of a man to survive. This is also where Leonardo De Carpio won his first Oscar.

My favorite bars are Tides, Prime, Guilly’s, when it comes to food I love Maginhawa Street it’s all in Quezon City. I’m from the South but I do enjoy going to the North. Quezon City is known for a hippie culture with cheap foods and drinks that’s why me and my friends prefer the place.

The book is called “Ways to be a Freelance Graphic Designer”. It’s a gift of my former IS back in GMA Network. , well it’s not a “great” book or anything with deep words and heavy grammar. As the title sounds, the book will help you to be a good Freelance Designer.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
To be successful in this field is what inspires me today. It’s also the main reason why I keep on studying this field. I’ve been in a scenario back in student days where a lot of people where judging the career I pursue. They look Fine Arts student as a jobless course, a course without ambition. I want to prove to them that regardless of field you will take as long as you have passion on what you do, you will succeed.

I don’t talk a lot, I’m a good listener and a keeper of secrets.
DO YOU CRITIQUE YOUR OWN WORK? EXPLAIN.
Yes, as always. You’re the first QA of your work. Design is different from Art in the perspective that designs need to get feedback or approval from a client. Unlike Fine Art that you just need to please yourself.
WHAT DO YOU DO TO GET INTO YOUR CREATIVE ZONE?
I always start the morning with exercise and a good coffee, that way I feel energetic the whole day. Getting in the creative zone means that you’re mentally prepared for a long day of creative stuff. I dose myself with coffee when the projects are tough as expected. Good music also boosts up my creative juices.
DO YOU COLLECT ANYTHING?
I do have a collection of different shoes and clothes. I love to wear trendy clothes, that way I feel more comfortable to be with other people. I don’t want them to feel that I’m different from them because of the way I dress.
