Hi, I’m Gordon.

I’m an award-winning Filipino-American designer, illustrator, and animator based in Somerville, MA. I have a Master of Fine Arts degree in Design (Graphic Design track) from the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities, where I focused on interactive publication design and visual storytelling in academic or educational contexts and minored in Moving Image Media Studies. I also have an extensive background in design and print production for marketing agencies and publishers.

I wrote and drew Multiplex, a comic strip about the staff of a movie theater, from July 2005 through April 2017. I’ve produced three collections of its early strips, including the IBPA-winning second volume, Multiplex: There and Back Again.

Shortly after the comic ended, I launched Multiplex 10: The Web Series, a crowdfunded animated adaptation of Multiplex that I produce, co-write, direct, animate, and edit. The pilot episode (a.k.a. Multiplex 10: The Animated Short) was an official selection at the Palm Springs International Animation Festival. The series has won several awards, including Best Animation/Puppetry at Minnesota WebFest and Best Web Series at the Monmouth Film Festival.
