As a graphic designer and illustrator, I realized I have yet to incorporate my mixed heritage into the things I love to do: Draw and Design. Kain Tayo! (Ka-inn Tah-yo) literally means, "Let's Eat!" another strong passion of mine, hahaha. This project is the embodiment of the underrated Filipino heritage I come from; if you haven't already, go try some Filipino Food! The goal is to have everything ready for the ever-growing PHX Night Market Spring show 2019, because you know, it's matchy-matchy with the theme and all that jazz.
During the illustration process I realized my character looked like the homie Kevin at Good Fortune Kitchen (Phoenix, Arizona). So we've kinda partnered on this project a bit.
Tees should make a statement and showcase your fandom! Why not have a giant Food Beast with yummy noms on your chest? Say it loud, say it proud, and always be prepared to eat delicious food. (Tees are not food repellant, do not use as a napkin for longer shelf life).
THE WHOLE PACKAGE
Cover your body with an amazingly soft tee and cool illustration! Love food? Here you go! I didn't just want to give you a tee by itself because that would be rude. Here's what's included:

OTHER COOL STUFF I'D LIKE TO MAKE (It relates, I swear)

THE BRAINS (loose term) OF THE PROJECT
I'm a parent of a future politician (just kidding! she's going to be Queen of the world, duh!), In-House Senior Graphic Designer from 9-6, and Freelance illustrator/designer somewhere between this crazy schedule. It seems I always have fun ideas for swag and apparel, but I think my family was cursed due to some unfortunate gambling from the past, so I never have the funds or resources to make these things come to life.
This is my 2nd KickStarter for myself, I've aided with other people's KS Campaigns and made some fancy graphics for them too! Let's hope I know what I'm doing by now, hahahaha. I've been in the graphic design world for a very long time, but professionally (degree and recommendations, freelancing and in-house), 7 years. Video games, street art, comic books and the 90's fuel my design and illustration passion. Maybe it shows? HA!
LOOK MA! I'M ON THE INTERNETS
- Here's a rad interview I did for VoyageLA
- I think I won some awards or something from AAF Metro Phoenix (The cool guys in Advertising)
- These awesome peeps at Phoenix NewTimes also chatted me up
- I like to make pretty photos with my illustrations on them
- And some other obscure location online, google RevengeLover or Raven Cruz? No, I didn't write that story on Wattpad, I'm working on having that person remove my logo :/
