my Trese Christmas Gift

It's been quite awhile since my brother Brandie has drawn an art piece like this. The last time he did something that came close to a comic book was something he did for their RE:VISION exhibit in 2010.

The very first comic book collaboration we ever did was the story PAYASO, which we did back in 1994!

So it was great to get this original artwork from him this Christmas :-)

Hoping to see him draw more in the new year!

Trese in Inquirer's TOP 10 Books for 2011

“Trese Vol. 4: Last Seen After Midnight” by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo (Visprint)
The newest installment of the wildly successful “Trese” comic-book series carries its trademark spooky inventiveness proudly as Alexandra Trese and her bodyguards, the Kambal, look into the truth behind comatose dorm mates, missing monsters, and even a certain world-famous prizefighter. Tan writes and Baldisimo illustrates with poise and polish. Like the best of its earlier incarnations, “Last Seen Before Midnight” lures readers into looking at their surroundings and finding the weird as well as the amazing.
