View Resume

Hello! I'm Adrien(ne) (they/them), and I'm a Filipino sequential artist and illustrator, and graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design Hong Kong in 2018 with a degree in Sequential Art. I enjoy storytelling through art and believe its potential to change the world, one smile at a time.

I love pesto, undercuts, videogames, obscure TV shows, even more obscure podcasts, and cute dogs (not necessarily in that order).
