Jap Mikel is a freelance illustrator and designer based in the Philippines. He has illustrated for both local books and magazine editorials.
He calls his art style “geometric impressionism,” where shape and color are subtly arranged to create light and shadow, depth and movement. His works are inspired by Philippine history, folklore, and pop culture.
The initial process of imagining and building worlds, exploring its inhabitants and their battles, enables his visuals to tell tales on their own.
