It has been a while since my last post. Been out for a 5 week holiday that made me realize some things. Upon my return to the #jmtejido studio, i knew that changes had to be done before the year ends. Now i am ready to go interstellar as i prepare my intergalactic preparations for 2015. :)

My newest book series: Jepoy the Jeepney

National children's book day is just around the corner. And what better way to celebrate it than launching a new book series. For anyone who has been to Manila , a distinct vehicle we have is the jeepney. Used by most people for public transport on a daily basis, the jeepney, locally termed as "dyip" has become a popular Filipino icon. (Jepoy is a common street nickname for those named Jeff.)

Jepoy the jeepney is a little dyip who is so eager to drive in his small town of Pag-asa. But what will happen to Jepoy if he doesnt listen to his mechanic's advice. Roll out yo new adventures soon as he earns his stripes as the town's first school service. More info and pics coming soon!

Hello world, this is Jepoy!

TGIM: Illustration Monday

TGIM: Book illustration. Part of a 6-book series. 
Can anyone guess what just happened here? 

My favorite part to illustrate is the center spread of a saddle-stitched book. I know the image will never be disjointed. Here's an excerpt from what i am doing now. 

Cheers and happy Monday (once again) from my studio!

Transluscent bug!

The great thing about working in a hone studio near a mountainside city is the amazing insectlife that surrounds us. Since this house was built in the mid 90s ive spotted lots of strange creatures, but this one tops them all. My wife found this ladybug- like creature with a transcluscent outer shell that looks like a contact lens/ helmet thing. It reminded me of how much i wanted to have a mini camera in my hands all the time when i was little. Now i do. :)
