I'm very excited about this project. Since I was a kid it's my dream to make a comicbook. We'll now, I'm making that dream a reality. Together with my friend Dennis Nierra (art director of BBDO Guerrero ad agency), we will be making the most DELINQUENT, IMPERTINENT, NON-SENSE,"WASAK" comicbook in Philippine history.
Love it or hate it.
We will be unleashing this monster this 2010! =)

I'm feeling a little nostalgic today so I decided to do a painting base on my childhood memories (actually almost all my paintings are base on my childhood).
Do you still remember the teks or this little cards that we used to play in the 80's. It's like a some sort of a storyboard (movie or tv series) that was transform into trading card---classic.
Here is my take on that, what if those tex still exists today...ano kaya itsura, malamang ganito...=)

I’m really happy that Freshmanila (Philippines’ premiere art toy store) tapped me and decided to make a toy based on my painting—BEMBOL BEE. I’m really happy to share with you the prototype. The figure will be available at Freshmanila very very soon. Mwahahaha! I think my mind control really works!!

"Amorsolo on drugs" acrylic on canvas
"Amorsolo on Drugs" painting by JP Cuison
As some of you may know, I love to paint. Despite of my busy life in advertising, I always find time to do my art. I consider myself a pop art artist. I've always been fascinated by artist like Jeff Koons, Allen Jones, Robert Rauschenberg and of course Andy Warhol.
For quite some time now, a thought has been lurking in my mind.. What if Amorsolo (Fernando Amorsolo) was drunk and watched a lot of Voltes V? What would his famous "Planting Rice with Mayon Volcano" painting look like? I have no intentions of making joke out of his artwork.. but really, what if?

It was a downpour of knowledge in St. Scholastica when Ryan, Nino and I substituted for Mrs. Angela Arches-Antonio. The students expressed so much delight and enthusiasm when we imparted advertising principles. Another strong validation of my mind control capabilities. Mwahahaha!!

The Reptilian Series.
Well I think that I don't have to blog about this (cause this is not a "bragging matter") but yes...it's confirmed, I have an adult ADHD syndrome. That explain my different "Phases". Sometimes I'm on my "Songwriter/musician mode", "Animator mode", "Komikero mode", "toymaker mode", "painter mode" etc.
Let me share my paintings during my "painter phase". This one is called the "Reptilian series". I'm a big fan of Andy Warhol (Pop art) and KAWS and I think this series is some sort of a tribute to my "painting gods".

Capt. Barangay Captain CD cover
Captain Barangay Captain started out as a joke.
During those college days, I really envied Jack Kirby and Stan Lee for making such memorable Marvel characters. They’ve spawned a dream to create some of my own.
And from this silly little joke came a series of other characters—who may not yet be as memorable as Kirby and Lee’s, but I’d like to think that they’re, well…making a mark :-)
Capt. Barangay Captain at ang mga Kagawads is a sort of spoof of the Marvel Universe (Avengers). At first, my friends and I were planning to make a 60's style comic. I’ve already made seven pages, when I checked on the feasibility of our plan. Turned out, creating an indie comic was really expensive. The cost of printing alone can eat a big chunk of my college allowance. Well, I could’ve used risograph to print the whole thing, but printing the characters in black and white won’t exactly justify the "Kirbyesque" feel that I wanted to achieve. So I dropped the comic project and thought of a more feasible plan.
Abandoning the comic plan created a bit of conflict between me and some of my friends whom I tapped for the project. They weren’t too keen on letting go of the idea of printing. Though I understood their passion for the printed indie comics, the feasibility issue was a big deal for me.
It seemed like a dead end. Still, I refused to think that bringing my characters to life was an impossibility.
And one day an idea came to me. Instead of a comic book, why not translate my idea into animation? It’s much more cheaper than comics. Burning CDs to mass produce them won’t even be a problem--I can do it "indie style" aka burn them mano-mano. Basically Capt. Barangay Captain at ang mga Kagawads is a form of animated comics; and, arrogantly speaking, it’s first of its kind.
I hired my good friend Manix Abrera to do the pencil sketches. His style might not be "Kirbyesque" but what the hell....he is Manix Abrera for crying out loud! :-)
And to retain the 60’s comic feel, I still use brush pens for my inking duties. As for the animation…it's an X-deal, with the animator—he needed a theme song for one of his animated projects at that time; so I made him a song for free, and he made the animation for free!
We started with this project in 2006, and I’m proud to say that 3 years later, this "CBC" idea has gone a long way :-) – CBC, Hogan, Bakal Boy and Mighty-T have all been part of several comic blogs. And now…drumroll please…they’re about to be shown on National TV.
Yup! Capt. Barangay Captain at ang mga Kagawads will be part of the new TV5 show "Front Act" hosted by stand-up comics, Mike and Stanley. Watch for the first episode on July 19 (Sunday), 5:30pm and see Captain Barangay Captain fly---literally and (with your help--) figuratively! :-)
Another Press release finished! :-)

Last March 7 I think I've made a right decision. I chose to attend the "Eraserheads final set" concert rather than the "Kidlat Awards" in Boracay (advertising award). Both are sharing the same date so I have to choose.
While we are watching the "Final Set" at MOA, we recieved a call that our "Cook" TVC (Mcdo Breakfast) won Bronze! Yahoo!! :-)
I think that day, we got the best of both worlds! Beh! Mwahahaha!!
