no style victim

digital sketch by george

this jotter has a New York-based batch mate from college (University of the Philippines, Diliman) who has a very interesting blog called Project 365: Draw the Line (draw365.blogspot.com) you’d be interested to read this blog if you actually or virtually sketch. I remember George to be the best illustrator in our class; I was particularly amazed at his skills in figure drawing. He had very confident lines and made his process of drawing look spontaneous and deceivingly easy.

comification of photographed images

george moved to New York in 1994 and became creative director for ROM Antics INC. New York. The very next year, he moved to Muffin-Head, Inc./DVCi Technologies implementing creative and usability standards for clients, internet multimedia, video and print projects, from pitches to finished projects. He designed and maintained company brand image, including corporate identity kits & website. He also managed client relationships with Prada, The Lancaster Group, Revlon, Estee Lauder, Breitling, Oxford, and Visionaire.

ads for RAFE

he went through other companies such as Digital Pulp, hip O, Nu Run that completely honed his skills and decided to go freelance as Art Director in 1992. From then to the present, he is the Branding Design Director for RAFE Studio Limited, New York, a bag and shoes company owned by Rafe Totengco. His clients now include Peter Som, AnnTaylor.com, Sony Music, Sointu USA, Russ Berrie & Co., and Grey Interactive

i remember george as a t-shirt and jeans guy in college and was pleasantly surprised to see him turn out to be a fashionphyle who, to this style jotter , was the chicest guy on fifth avenue. seemingly he has the chutzpah to wear Rick Owens and Mcqueen together without looking like a victim.
