Interactions with people, the stories they tell and his habit of observing everyday life outside are very inspirational to his work as an artist. Discarded material, “treasures” to be found on streets occasionally end up as his art materials. He is an artist by profession and a musician by passion. He is the illustrator of the book Si Pitong Noong Panahon ng mga Hapon (Adarna House) featured in our War & Children in Books: E-Storytelling & Q&A event last June 19, 2020.
