Tinkering Tales

Tinkering with something new, with concepts and traditional mediums that have been long untouched which meant the perfect time to re-discover them.


My work will be up alongside other fellow INKies of Ang INK for our 25th year andย  we will be celebrating it at Ayala Museum

We’d love for you to join us at the opening reception of our exhibit, Tinker Tales on Sept. 12, 2016, 6 PM. See you there!

31st National Children’s Book Day


Dropped by 31st National Children’s Book Day at the Museo Pambata.


Wandered around the museum to view some really cute installations per area. Makes me want to visit them again.

Also, here to support our fellow INKies who took part for this yearโ€™s PBBY. Participants created these breath taking visuals for Genaro Gojo Cruzโ€™s Gaano ba Kalayo Patungong Paaralan? (How Far is School?)


Fellow INKie, Jason Sto. Domingo alongside his entries was acknowledged along with Jericho Moral and grand prize winner Aaron Asis, who will have his work published. Hope you guys get a copy of this new book soon.

Anyway, here are photos of their amazing illustrations. Beautifully done by Jason, Jericho and Aaron. You can view more of them at PBBY.


By the way, the three arrived in style via this helicopter. I take it back, Iโ€™m kidding. Haha.

Ang INK also had a spot here where we had some of our artworks and crafts sold.
