Initial study for a Pacquiao poster I’m working on.
This will be released as 50 unique limited edition prints. To reserve yours, send an email to pinoyartista@gmail.com.
Pacquiao will be facing Juan Manuel Marquez for the 3rd time this Nov. 12…and if you’ve seen their previous matches, then you know these guys hate each other, so it’s gonna be one hell of a punch up! About time too, since his match against Moseley was a snoozefest.
Pacquiao: Winning In & Out of the Ring written and illustrated by me is now available for the Kindle. Go get it! It’ll knock you out!

Experimenting with different art styles for a series I’m developing.
Second variation on a theme.

This is an old one, I think I must’ve made it while I was in high school or college.
I am prejudiced towards old people…but in a positive way. I have this unfounded belief that having lived so long, they must be wise and kind and therefore, are to be given respect. Despite having met numerous dirty old geezers and crafty old biddies, I still have trouble overcoming this prejudice.

CD art for Bill Hicks' album “Dangerous.”
I used to be a huge Bill Hicks fan. Along with Carlin, Pryor, Murphy, and all those other comedians. I would burn their albums to blank CD’s which I’d design. Obviously, I was gainfully unemployed at the time. Now I’m self employed, which many argue is actually the same thing, or something very similar to it.

What Cats & Dogs Think About.
This one was inspired by Gary Larson’s “The Far Side.” Boy, is that guy is funny.
I can’t remember which stand-up comic inspired this cartoon.
Anyway, one day, they’ll just combine the two holidays figures, and start selling Jesus and Santa on a Seesaw play sets, where Santa, for some reason, is always up in the air.
A comic I made for a good friend of mine’s birthday. She lived in Manila for six years, and for a young, French lady, did very well as far as learning the language, negotiating the chaotic Manila traffic, and making lots of friends. Now if only she could manage the stares. Joyeux Anniversaire, Dominique.
