For those interested in the visual arts in general, or children’s book illustration in particular, beginning this Friday at 6pm the Ayala Museum will be hosting a preview of selected artworks by Jon Jaylo for the children’s book, “Here Be Dragons” by Victor Ocampo. Victor’s a Filipino spec fic author, and when I asked him about the book and the exhibit, he described the story as : “a children’s fantasy story (that happens to be set in the same universe as all of my short stories)… Jon Jaylo… is known for his very surrealistic Rene Marritte-inspired works. His art is a strange blend of dark mystery and humor.”
The exhibit should be open for around two weeks, so if you’re like me and can’t make it on Friday, you can catch it on another day. The book itself will be launched on a later date.
