Shortlisted Interview #9: Butch Mapa

I had trouble finding Renato Mapa on Facebook but thankfully, Karla Tricia Magno of NBS lent a hand in contacting some artists. We started exchanging e-mails and, after he sent me some links to his works, I’d say I quickly understood why Cebulski was impressed. The dude’s a fantastic penciller! Get to know “Butch” and see some of his samples below! Mark Rosario: Tell us...

I’m taking a quick break from posting interviews for the 34 Pinoy artists that made it to Cebulski’s shortlist. In the mean time, let me just tell you how much I love it when 3 of my favorite things combine namely comics, movie, and rock and roll!
