Lost Bunny | Pinoy Komikls Anthology

"Lost Bunny" is a piece originally intended for Borderline.  But I decided to do it in watercolor and donated it for Pinoy Komiks Anthology on kickstarter.  My heartfelt gratitude to Maarten Schilder from Holland, (one of the many backers for this project) who got both the book and this artwork. I also would like to thank Adam Pasion and Zon Petilla for coming up with this anthology. This is certainly a big help for so many Filipinos. THANK YOU.

International Children's Book Day


It was in 2000 that I made this book for my girlfriend. The Dewgazer & The Dewdrop Fairy.

It's basically a story about how we both met composed in fairy tale fit. Divided into 7 chapters, the book was originally written as a short poem, but due to my mind's constant bothering my goodnight sleep to add more spice, sugar and a bit of colored flavoring into it. And Boy, it went on like that for a couple of nights until the short verse transformed into a 175 line Children's Ballade.

Handmade and book bound, artworks in each page were done in watercolor and ink including the written poem. I gave the finish book to my girlfriend's birthday on April of 2001.

And in 2004 I was reading The Dewgazer & The Dewdrop Fairy as a bedtime story to our beautiful daughter.
