JP Cuison's Capt. Barangay Captain (origin,ep. 1 & 2 )

Collage pa lang iniisip ko na'to. Ngayon totoo na.

Capt. Barangay Captain is a parody of the old Jack Kirby and Stan Lee's Marvel Comic Hour during the 60s. It's my first formal animation project. It has become an annual thing for me to sell CBC dvds every KOMIKON (I'm now on my third year ).

Fortunately, it's slowly getting some attentions. It was reviewed by Mark Cerbo of Komiks News Now Philippines http://komiksnewsnow.wordpress.com/2007/12/10/review-captain-barangay-captain/
Even Lyndon Gregorio of Beerkada: http://beerkada.i.ph/blogs/beerkada/page/3/

May mga kinakausap akong mga taga T.V. stations. Sana matripan nila yung animation ko at ipalabas nia sa Network nila (hoping).

...hay, ang hirap umingles! (swoosh)

PUPIL album cover







Kinausap kami (ako at ang girlfriend ko dati na wife ko na ngayon) ni Ely Buendia para gumawa ng album cover ng 2nd album ng Pupil. Medyo gusto kong sumubok ng bagong approach kaya naisipan kong mag collage art. Walang photoshop dito, lahat talagang mano-manong dikit. I was approached ( together with my girlfriend ) by Mr. Ely Buendia to design the album cover of their 2nd album (Wildlife). I was sick and tired of the ussual "photoshop" and "vector" rendering so I decided to go old school, old school collage work with manual glue-ing effort of Mayhem.

Pero sa 'di inaasahang pangyayari ay 'di natuloy yung project sa amin.
But unfortunatelly the project didn't push through for some uncontrollable reasons.

Isa sa mga project na proud ako. One of my proudest project. Alam ko umabot 'to sa shortlist ng Spikes ( international ad awards ) pero 'di nakapasok. Pero proud pa rin ako. I know this one made it to the Spikes' short list but unfortunatelly it never reach the final heaven of recognition and nirvana state of being. But I'm still proud of it. Happy birthday.

RX concert poster


From nothing to something. Ito ay isa sa mga imposibleng project. Sobrang ikli lang ng panahon para gawin so wala ng time na magshoot. Pero dahil sa masusing pagsasaliksik, pagsunog ng kilay at pag-alay ng ulo ng kambing sa harap ng mga anito ng buhay, nabuo ang ad. Meron kaming natuklasan na photo website na nagpapagamit/ nagpapadownload ng hi res na photo ng libre! Kung ano yun...secret na lang namin yun hehehe.

My first print ad eva!


This is my first ever print ad. Sobrang saya ko nung nabuo 'to kasi nakailang compre ako dito. During the shoot sobra ang saya kasi madaming langaw ang hinuli at pinag acting workshop namin para maganda ang projection sa camera.

Sa awa naman ng Diyos ay may nakapansin sa ad at naging Print Ad of the month (Creative guild of the Phils.) nakalimutan ko nga lang yung month pero mga 2006 yun. Na-feature din siya sa Adobo Magazine (advertising magazine). Unfortunatelly, after nung photo shoot... namatay yung langaw :-( Kung nasaan ka man, maraming salamat sa'yo (RIP).

Virgin blogger


I'm an advertising whore, designer, musician, toy collector/maker, animator, director, illustrator and a frustrated gag writer. I made this blog because I don't have enough money to hire a P.R. outfit (which by the way almost all public figures have even the pope). Basically I’ll be practicing my “Bragging Rights” here. I’ll be posting my latest projects whether it’s from advertising, musical endeavors,
Illustration and design projects basta mga pwede kong ipagmayabang ilalagay ko lahat dito. In short, it’s my portfolio site. Right now I’m currently employed as an Art Director in Leo Burnett Manila (multinational big shot spectacular splendid Advertising Agency with a cool British boss). Enjoy the trip and may you have an orgasmic week ahead of you.
