Philippines on the Line


I created this poster for my brother’s college.

Waters clash to the land, crushing the houses of the beloved and trees that stood by. It was difficult to watch. Last year, it was the flood, that flooded every room in every building. Everything got soaked.  Every year, especially in the fall, harsh weather will intrude, such as a typhoon, monsoon, cyclone, and more to come. We live close by the oceans, open to storms, currents,  and rain.

It’s been almost a week. All that’s left are rumbles. Slowly, if we all work together, we can help rebuild their lives through aid, prayer, and hope.

Umiiyak at hinawakan ang buhay nila. Tumatayo pa sila sa lupa.

Maglakas ka sa wakas Pilipinas. Narinig kami.

Mundo, Tulungan po.

They cry and hold their life. They still stand on land.

Stay strong till the end, Philippines. We can hear you.

World, help.

That’s all to ask and need.


HOPE Project

This was done on the first week of March before my friend’s graduation this year for her Masters.

When she introduced me to this project, I knew what I had in mind. I use the idea of the rose from her name, Rosie Hernandez, to put in the logo. The concept on the top is to let the victims glow and move on from their past-there is hope to comfort them later on. I placed the rosebush background with the logo on the front to show the rose bloom and grow is the hope.

The gallery was dark. Little light was shown to portray the victims’ past which shows their deep emotions. There were sculptures and portraits of women and infants who were abused. It was a quiet atmosphere. No music played. Just art displayed for the viewers only.

May we comfort and support to those who had a dark past. For the victims, I hope they move forward and have a better future ahead of them.Image

Charis + FOP Awareness

Charis is my childhood friend and sister. She battles FOP everyday but she is open, strong, and positive. 

To some you may not know her yet she treats anyone as a sister. Like her page for her body to move freely, and stand on her own feet to walk and join with us.

To her and close to her will be considered a gratuity and support.
