From the dust bin: old character sketches for “Taguan”

These drawings will never see the light of day if I don’t post them here. Back in 2007 I was tapped to illustrate a Filipino graphic novel published by Adarna and written by Don Valdez. The book was entitled “Taguan”. Unfortunately, I couldn’t meet the deadlines because of my day job in advertising.

They asked Robert Magnuson to replace me as the illustrator on the project. Strangely enough, the book hasn’t come out yet. Here is a teaser for the project done my Magnuson.

Here are my initial and very rough studies for the some of the characters in the book.
