Born and raised in the Philippines, Christian started his career as an Art Director at the country's renowned Team Manila Graphic Design Studio in 2007. Soon after, he transferred his focus to freelance illustration, and within a year set out to build an incredible body of work that emphasizes on colorful imagery and playful characters. In that span, he took his talents overseas and collaborated with clients such as Adobe Systems Inc., Cobra Starship, Paramore, and Quiksilver.
