I am Gino Roberto J. Cobarrubias; or Gino for short. I am an aspiring Illustrator who graduated with from Information and Technology Academy in the Philippines with a degree in B.S Animation in 2012. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, often doodling in class and making amateur comics as a hobby.
I’ve been mostly inspired by Japanese anime and Western comics and cartoons. My real life inspirations, however, are two of my art teachers back in high school, one of whom is Hubert Michael who’s now one of the lead pencil artists for Dynamite Comics.
I work digitally since it eases a lot of the work process and has tools which aren’t available in real life. Recently, I’ve indulged myself in doing fantasy art inspired mostly by Dungeons and Dragons and other fantasy books like Lord of the Rings and Wheel of Time. I also like to draw science fiction mostly inspired from the mecha, cyberpunk and dystopian settings such as Warhammer 40k and Gundam.
