TARA MCPHERSON + JP CUISON ( a dream come true )

This is a dream come true for me.

PLACE: Vinyl on Vinyl
TIME: about 11 pm (August 7 2010)

JP: Hi Tara! Just want to thank you for being my inspiration. I'm really in to making gig posters and one of the reasons is you.

TARA: Oh thank you. ☺

JP: Can I ask you a favor? It’s really my dream to collaborate with you. Can you please draw anything here? (Then I showed him my drawing).

Tara: hmmm…

JP: You can draw anything…as in anything…Mr. wobbles will do (wink wink) ;-)

Tara: ok :-)

And here is the product of this instant "art collaboration".

Thank you so much Tara. Now I can brag that I did collaborate with my idol :-)
(The “holding hands” is my drawing then she puts her trademark skull flower drawing on the girl’s arm. Yipee!! =)

Special thanks to Vinyl and Vinyl :-)

Drawn Together art exhibit @ The Crucible, Megamall

Congrats guys! Great show!! =)

Beejay Esber / Bjorn Calleja / Dave Lock / Edric Go
Epjey Pacheco / Nemo Aguila / Rommel Celespara

This exhibit is a means to find an excuse for these artists to put down their brushes and revert to what has always been the essence of all art forms, reconsidering the primary reason why most artists are artis...ts, which is, nowadays overlooked by the ever changing demand for substance and methods of exploration in media and the cont...emporary aesthetic standards being imposed by the modernists and the conceptualists, where beauty lies behind the lines and the curves, and art in general would only be for the intellectuals to understand. There would be no point in arguing such subjective matters but a tap on the primitive sense of visual pleasure might not hurt.

Drawn Together is an installation of series of drawings by artists with backgrounds that range from comic book illustration, graffiti, painting, design, etc. on a collaborative wall drawing, bringing together several ideas, drawing styles, and conceptions as a single art piece.

Manila Sound Vision Exhibit


Rock gods from 70s collaborate with contemporary graphic designers and redo album art from the Manila Sound era, when Filipino music had something to fight for and nothing to prove.

I'm so happy to be part of this collaboration! :-)

See you there!
