|My 26 cartoons in a row.|
Ranan Lurie's cartoon. Lurie was the illustrator of U.S magazine's Newsweek. He influenced' my zeal to draw since my elementary grades.
But modesty aside, I showed to all and sundry that I could draw and be at the leagues of professionals in the country ha ha ha, that's according to friends teh-heh and sanamagan I was not even a professional cartoonist, puwedi nagbubuhat ng cartoons na empty sa bodega namin noong may store pa kami.
|Norman Rockwell's painting for the Saturday Evening Post. I had a painting|
canvass of this art done by my friend Danny Oligario when we were working
at the Philippine Military Academy in the late 1980s.
Danny, a professional painter, taught me how to draw using charcoal.
