Little Boracay Beach Kids

Here is another illustration I am working on for a resort in Boracay , an  island in the Philippines located approximately 315 km (200 miles) south of Manila which is considered one of the best beaches in the world. 
The client needed some images to be printed as postcards , T-shirts, and beach bags that they can sell in the souveneir shop of their hotel.

Below is my idea of a line of characters called " Little Boracay Beach Kids".
Here is the first Little Boracay Kid I created.
Little Boracay Beach Kid #1:" Kelly who loves to Snorkell"

More characters for the "Little Boracay Kids" coming up!!

I will be exhibiting one of my " Traveling Scroll Series" entitled: From Manila to New York.
My  mix-media scroll paintings were inspired by the different countries I have lived in and visited. These scrolls are a combination of digital, linocut printing and traditional painting methods. My works combine mythological symbols and urban icons in a playful fusion of modern Western and Eastern motifs, such as skyscrapers, zeppelins as well as snakes and volcanoes. Arranged in thematic series, my works include paintings, watercolors and prints that offer rich tableaux of both primitive and modern forms.

In these scrolls, I draw upon numerous motifs, which are native to the Philippines and other Asian-Pacific cultures. Some of these works include autobiographical exploration of the subconscious through dream images and fantasy with playful juxtapositions of Eastern and Western motifs

My work was included in a Symposium on The History of Philippine-American Art and the Swiss Artist Events from the Swiss Consulate Cultural Section in New York City and has been reviewed by a Washington Post art critic who wrote, ”Of the thirty three works on view at the Foundry Gallery, I liked Maria Madonna Davidoff’s mix-media scrolls..."
