JEDPUNONGBAYAN---KAGANAWA-PUNK

I made an advertising campaign thesis about a certain rock-inspired footwear brand back in college, where I took Advertising Arts. When I graduated, the company then expressed interest in hiring me as a designer so I started working with them professionally for more than a year. I eventually left to work with a new company which also have the same rock-inspired sensibilities on their products.

JEDPUNONGBAYAN---TYPECAST-CAMPFIRE

I have a certain duality on my works, the goofy, trippy side and the more visceral, brooding pieces on the other. It all comes down to my first love – comics. As a kid, I was exposed to the works of Jack Kirby, John Romita Sr. and Steve Ditko early on so that goofball side will always have a special place on my drawing board. But as I grew older, I got fascinated with surreal artworks both comics/illustrations, low-brow art and heavy music so that resonated with my later works. I let my two art styles be their own entities, occasionally colliding one another depending on my mood.

JEDPUNONGBAYAN---DOOM

Usually, when clients pitch their ideas, simultaneously my mind goes frantic with images, like searching files and references from the massive catalog of my brain. I always try to nail the basic idea from the initial rough sketch the client and I agreed upon, then I inject it with my own style for the finished output.

I mainly use Adobe Photoshop for my digital art. But I have a soft-spot for pen and ink on paper.

JEDPUNONGBAYAN---DUALITY

For my day job, I currently design for Macbeth, a company founded by Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge. As for my studio, I do have a small set-up at home for my freelance stuff and personal works, although I believe a larger, comfy studio would be a big help to pump those extra creative juices. I usually get to work after midnight (I’m a nocturnal person) or after I’ve had my coffee.

JEDPUNONGBAYAN---MACBETH-NIGHT-POSTER

Because of the nature of my work, I get to hang-out with rock musicians, build connections with them and go to gigs and concerts, which I’m fond of because I get to see people, including musicians that I listen to, wearing my designs. It’s kind of surreal and flattering at the same time and it drives me to create more stuff.

JEDPUNONGBAYAN---PUNK-KIDS

I’m really interested with the idea of expanding my illustrative catalog for rock bands outside of the country.

Besides illustration, I do photography and I take interest in film. I’m also playing guitar in a band called Phosmonauts, a post-rock side project, with my friends. We’re currently on the process of creating stuff.
