Hi, I’m Gordon.
I’m an award-winning, Filipino-American illustrator, animator, and designer based in Somerville, MA. I have a Master of Fine Arts degree in Design (Graphic Design track, Interactive Design emphasis) 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 run, including the IBPA-winning second volume, Multiplex: There and Back Again.
Shortly after the comic ended, I launched Multiplex 10: The Web Series, an animated adaptation of Multiplex that I co-write, produce, direct, animate, edit, and even act in. The pilot episode 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.
I am actively seeking illustration & animation commissions and other freelance/short term contract work—but I would consider long-term contracts or full-time position for the right company. You can review my résumé here or check out my full employment history on my LinkedIn.
