From the earliest known komiks created by Philippine national hero Jose Rizal to the contemporary Filipina superwoman Darna, the local komiks genre has established itself as a staple Filipino cultural phenomenon that constantly reflects and explores the intricacies of society and culture.

Take this opportunity to join award-winning komiks illustrator Kajo Baldisimo, the artist behind the gorgeously Manila noir-esque visuals of comic book series and Netflix show Trese, for a fascinating workshop where you’ll get to explore illustrating in the Filipino komiks style for yourself.

Kajo Baldisimo is the illustrator and co-creator of the award-winning comic book series Trese, the story of a detective unravelling criminal cases of the supernatural kind. As a devoted doodler of fun worlds and dark realms, Baldisimo has worked for local Filipino komiks publishers to maintain his addiction for books, and in advertising to sustain his biological functions. He is currently based in Davao, Philippines, residing with his family and his army of overly excited canines and feisty felines.
