Hello! My name is Reg. I’m an illustrator from Manila, Philippines, with a degree in Multimedia Arts from the School of Design and Arts at the DLS-College of St. Benilde. I have a penchant for drawing cute, playful, and whimsical graphics suitable for greeting cards, stationery, paper goods, gift ware and novelty items, and children’s books.
Before I became an illustrator, I was a motion graphics designer for television for the biggest broadcasting network in the Philippines. I also have had experience working fulltime as a graphic designer for a creative agency based in New York/Los Angeles/London, designing rich media and flash banner ads, websites, and online games. It was through these previous jobs that I was able to work on projects for clients and brands such as Unilever, McDonald’s, Jollibee, Coca-Cola, Globe Telecom, Sony Pictures, Nickelodeon, Disney Interactive, Google, MTV, and Fox, among others.
In 2012 I decided to go into illustration fulltime, resigning from my design day job. Formerly represented by illustration agencies Advocate Art and Bright International, both in the UK, I am now a 100% freelance illustrator which allows me to include serving God in my schedule in our Catholic prayer community, The Feast.
My hobbies and interests include cats, arts and crafts/DIY, wasting time on the Internet, travel, watching movies, photography, school and office supplies, laughing at my own jokes, and eating Flaming Hot Cheetos.
