I work primarily in print creating packaging, posters, magazines, books, book covers, and branding material. My work centers around identity–broken down into three categories: duality, history, and sexuality. As a gay, transracial Filipino-American in white, heteronormative America, these three aspects of identity are the foundation of my self-initiated graphic works. Through exploring these concepts, I hope to start a dialogue between me and the viewer, gaining a greater perspective of myself.
