Guest Art by Freely Abrigo

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Thursday, December 1, 2011

This delightful guest art of Dr. Rianne is by The Manila Bulletin cartoonist, Freely Abrigo!  Here she dons a Cal Duck hat, which is cute in itself, but what stands out to me is her expression of utter glee!  It truly makes you feel her joy while it has you wondering what in the world has her feeling so great.

Such is the talent behind such beloved comic series as Kulas and Kapitan Tog.  I am very honored to have Rianne taken form from Freely's drawing hand!  You can certainly appreciate the classic strokes of his work and I feel a lot of it shows in this illustration.  It just speaks volumes even without words.  In a prior interview with "The Blurb", he cites wonderful cartoonists like Sergio Aragones and Antonio Prohias and even the cartoon Cow and Chicken as influences!

Be sure to check out his Multiply page and watch out for his cartoons in The Manila Bulletin!
