Updates

Hullo Folks! Just some updates cause the site almost has no other posts than the Feature Friday! ones.xD 

I'll have to go and say that there will be no Feature for the month of April. I'll be reaaaally busy at the moment. I'm going home to the Province for the Holy Week and I know I won't be able to give it full attention. But who knows, maybe I could find a way but don't expect too much. xD

Hope you're all having a wonderful time wherever you folks are.

Here's some pictures to satiate your eyes! Enjoy!
Please do visit my Deviantart for more of my silly cartoons. :D

CY VENDIVIL

Cy aspires to make comics and games and is a member of Kyusi Kompanie and a partner for Studio Salimbal.

• What are you working on right now?
I have a lot of projects! I'm mainly working on two comics, a personal one Monokuro and an upcoming comic series which I'll handle art for a few issues or something. Hoping to put out a lot of comics this year.
• How and when did you discover that you wanted to do art?
I've drawn since I was a kid, but the decision to be serious with it came to me in my 20's. Despite this, I've made a lot of comics (but not enough!) , and I look up to my cousins Russel and Jay-Jay  for making A.R.C.H.O.N.
• If you weren't doing art, what would you be doing?
Computer science researcher or profressor!
• How has your practice changed over time?
I half regret the way I approached art in the past didn't really push me forward, but thankfully I've grown better. Right now, I'm focusing more on studies than making a lot of output. In addition, I'm going to do my best and learn making comics traditionally.
• What work do you most enjoy doing?
Putting ideas on paper and soldifying concepts. Yup just the drawing part. I'm learning to love lining and rendering tho!
• What art do you most identify with?
I really love art that tells or shows a story or a message. Usually styles from french or canadian artists that have a certain dose of manga in them resonates with what I want to do. Indie styles are so cool too!
• What's the best thing anyone has said about your work?
Not sure about about compliments, but the best thing is when they want more of your work. But who am I kidding I think it was cool I've made people cry once. HAHA
• Who is the biggest influence in your work?
A big influence to my recent direction in art is all because of a friend I've collaborated a lot with writing and art for two years. We've drifted apart recently.
• What is the single work of which you are most proud?
I don't have any but I'm really proud of how Monokuro's shaping up!
• What is your dream project?
An rpg of my own conception!
• Who do you dream of collaborating with?
A lot of great people out there, so it could be anyone! I'll tell you one thing, I'm already collaborating with one of them.
• Tell us one of your guilty pleasures
I really love researching about a particular thing or better yet an artist.
• If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be?
Can I be a dog???
• What's the strangest thing you have in your house?
My house doesn't have any when I'm not around.
• When was the last time you were truly frightened?
Whenever I get dem panic attacks.
• What music are you listening to these days?
Game music (recently: pokemon, bravely series, dj max, ragnarok.) In general, I like rag time and jazz.
• What is the worst advice you've ever received?
"Don't think, just do it." I'm sorry I'm too much of a thinker to work this way haha.
• What is the best advice you've ever received?
Pain is necessary, but suffering is optional. -- Haruki Murakami
Another one is to pick up Robert Henri's The Art Spirit.

WEBSITES: FACEBOOK WORDPRESS | INSTAGRAM


• What are you working on right now?
I am currently learning how to make clothes so there’s that. Illustration-wise, I found an old w.i.p. Just the usual, I guess - hand drawn, detailed, highly ornamental but this time, with colors.
• How and when did you discover that you wanted to do art?
I’ve been doing it all my life. People at home said I’ve been doodling long before I started attending pre-school so I can’t really remember when exactly. I took up Fine Arts ‘cause I figured it’s the only thing I can do hahaha
• If you weren't doing art, what would you be doing?
I don’t know. Provide home for stray pets? Cooking food for a living? Running some kind of business? Holy wow this question’s  hard as fuck!
• How has your practice changed over time?
I think I was subconsciously limiting myself back in highschool throughout my college years. Got too fixed on learning “what is right”, using the “proper tools” and shit. But I hardly give a fuck now and I just do what I like when it comes to my work. Hell, I hardly even use those “proper tools”!
• What work do you most enjoy doing?
Inking detailed stuff at my own pace. I kinda like the whole getting lost in my work then finding myself again thing but that’s hardly possible when  you’re rushing it. Time pressure’s a bitch.
• What art do you most identify with?
I have a strong affinity for Van Gogh because of his life story. My works rendered in felt markers obviously reflects this. Dunno about my usual illustrations, though. Did I answer this properly? Figured I tend to give out off answers ‘cause my mind drifts off a lot haha!
• What's the best thing anyone has said about your work?
“Parang panaginip.” (It’s like a dream). I can’t remember who said it to me, though.
• Who is the biggest influence in your work?
The universe, nature, and most importantly, my pets hahahaha
• What is the single work of which you are most proud?
T’was an old plate. Freehand perspective. I thought the way I rendered it was kinda sick. Can’t believe I’m the one who actually did it. Surprised myself back there.
• What is your dream project?
Anything that’s officially related to Harry Potter!
• Who do you dream of collaborating with?
Boticelli, Van Gogh, Muha and Bernini because he’s a sexy beast.
• Tell us one of your guilty pleasures
 Binge-watching series, floating around a pool instead of actually doing laps, and lying on the floor when shit goes down.
• If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be?
 Doraemon.
• What's the strangest thing you have in your house?
 This antique, butt-baked Santo NiƱo wooden sculpture encased in this glass cylinder. We don’t pray to it or anything. Just for display ‘cause it’s art.
• When was the last time you were truly frightened?
 This portfolio critique event. I had to stand up front! That was hellish for someone with anxiety issues but I survived haha!
• What music are you listening to these days?
OST of films/series
• What is the worst advice you’ve ever received?
"Di bale ng tamad, di naman pagod”. Not really and advice but some kind of philosophy I guess.“
• What is the best advice you've ever received?
Do what you love and do it as often enough. Something like that heh.
