Under the Influence

I've seen this grid years  ago and never got around to it.

Got a grid template and need to fill each square by importance of that artist/persons influence.  so I rummaged some art folders of artists I admire and fill it up with the ones that inspire me the most.  Guys with solid linework and painting I love looking at and a tv character/actor. Just followed my gut at the moment.

Then there was a big chunk left at the bottom and it just didn't feel right putting artists there at all anymore.

Art is probably in my mind most of the time so its on top of the grid. but its the people in my life that makes everyday meaningful and are my solid foundation.... and I always leave a lot of space open for more.

Imagine FX March 2012 Issue

Thanks to Imagine FX for being featured on the "Planet of the Arts" section. I've been reading/collecting it on and off for a couple of years and its such a beautiful feeling to see my name featured albeit from the wrong country (I'm from the Phillipines).

On an issue with Howard Pyle and Paul Bonner!

This doesn't change anything, I'm still working harder this year to get my skills to the level of peers I've admired. If anything being featured in the magazine is for the people whose efforts and support enabled me to change careers and work alongside my passions to be proud of.
