VCD – Character Design & Illustration


I'm an illustrator, character designer and animator with a "healthy" cartoon obsession. Currently based out of Calgary Alberta, my work centers all things silly and fun! I love colour, texture and projects that can make me laugh as hard as my audience. My influences primarily center all the joy the cartoons I got to watch growing up gave me and I hope to inject that same absurdity, humour and connection into all the art I make!

Character Illustration

A general collection of narrative based character illustration.

Enviroment Work

Environment design from a variety of different projects.


Roots is a collaborative short film pitch that explores the fleeting connection of culture. Through the experiences of three friends: Marisol, John and Richel, this film navigates what it really means to be "Filipino Enough". In this collection you can find a variety of work I've produced for this project.
