Hi! This is my contribution for the Renaissance Charity Event poster campaign.
The event, which will benefit the victims of Typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng, will happen on February 21, 2010 at the SM Megatrade Hall 3, SM Megamall. The book of the same title will also be launched at the event, featuring artworks from 60 Filipino artists of the past, present and future.
I drew Captain Barbell with his very first costume not just because I was told to but because it also shows how creative Mars Ravelo is. The costume was based on the strong circus strong men! It also shows the size difference between him and his alter ego, Enteng. Also, a TV company sucks at doing costumes, even the movies.
And now my character. For those who don't know, Gwapoman's reason on why he is topless is because of Captain Barbell. It's not just because he is overly arrogant and boastful. More on that next time.
I also made Captain Barbell look a bit old for the age difference, hence the theme!
Thanks again, Wan!
