How did you start your career?

I began my career in inking when I was hired do to web comics for The Grad (online comics) from Dreamland Comics (1999). From there on another Indy comics from the states gave me a shot at Visuals Assault Comics as an inker. Soon after I establish myself as one of the prolific inker. I begun expanding my work and getting some attention from different Indy publisher in the states. Then I did some back-up inking on Chasity Re-Imagine (2001) from Chaos Comics and Emma Frost (issues 16-17) from Marvel Comics (2004) as a ghost inker.

That’s fantastic to be get to ink a Marvel comic! Anyway please continue.

From that point on I was given an inking assignment from IDW which is re-lunching the title Maze Agency for 3 issues (2005). And another book came along in that same year which is Tokyo Knights from Top Cow. And I did another project from the same company which is M.I.T.H. Thru several of works came along and putting me as in one of the upcoming talents in inking. I also did Lego Exoforce (2006) (web comics / packaging / activity book) from Lego Company, Couplers (2006) (issues 1, 2, and 5) from Real Buzz Studios, Elemental Fources (2007) (issues 1-6) from New Baby Productions, Space Ace (2008) (issues 5-6) from MV Creations /Arcana Studio.

So what is your focus now?

Right now I’m still busy doing some gigs on inking and as well as commissions. I’m expanding my work I also do coloring for time to time and making a name out of it. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree on Advertising and Public Relation from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Sta. Mesa branch.

How would you describe your artwork?

In style I just study different artist (inker), namely Scott Williams, Alex Garner, Danny Miki, John Dell and Batt. For inkers your main job is to enhance the page or capture the idea of the pencillers in their pages. Plus you must also study human anatomy, light and shadows, perspective and creating texture. Like I always said that inkers are the last line when deadline approaches. You sometimes will help the penciller to finished the book so you must know at least to draw something.

How did you start your skills in this?

Mostly I did self-taught before but when I discovered Whilce Portacio Comics Creation Course here in the Philippines around 1998. I attended there and I learn all the aspect in making comics.

Whose work do you like from a pencilling perspective?

Jim Lee, Whilce Portacio, Stephen Platt, Michael Turner, Carlos Pacheco, Ivan Reis and Howard Porter.

And from an inking perspective?

Scott Williams, D-Tron, Batt, Dick Giordano, John Dell, Jon Sibal, Joe Weems, Michael Bair, Danny Miki, Alex Garner and Terry Austin.

What do you enjoy outside of work?

I like Filipino dishes and some Chinese also. I like to play basketball before but now I don’t have time for it. I like watching movies too especially comic book base movie and sci-fi also. I love watching NBA games and playing them thru PS3, PSP or in my computer.

Thanks for your time!
I’m sure we’ll see more of your work in the future.
