Paranormal Philippines by revcruz Paranormal Philippines by revcruz
This is greatly inspired by a sold-out Threadless T-shirt design by Aaron Hogg entitled "Para-normal US"... but knowing it can only be appreciated by Americans, and though I love the concept (which I think is also inspired by the typographical map work of Paula Scher), I can never wholeheartedly have this shirt. So I decided to create something by borrowing the concept yet adding a little twist of my own (see the little drawings to illustrate some of the mythological creatures): a translation using my country's very own folklore and mythology (I did painstaking research!).

I will be printing this on my own for a limited run, here in the Philippines. Will hopefully be available by latter October, in time for the Halloween season.

Nice work sir, thank you for posting this

Hi. my name is Jovencio Jimenez and Im a researcher about Philippine mythology.. I would just like to ask if you could participate in a survey that I made for my thesis, this involves the effect of an innovation of Philippine Mythology, by applying illustration from culture mapping. "Culture mapping", a method created by the author to create distinction of the gods over other cultures. for more information you can visit my page at at www.facebook.com/mitopilipinas…;

the survey only consists of 13 questions, and would take only 3-5 minutes of your time. 

hoping for your response

salamat

My family apparently had some type of experience with something related to tikbalangs/dwendes. I gave up trying to ask them about it, they won't give me any straightfoward answers.

Anyway, magaling yun picture na yan!

You should have your own experience or at least listen intently to stories about them. It doesn't men you have to believe them but just to hear these mysterious tales is rewarding enough!

Ooh cool! This reminds me of that American book series coming out this fall called The Aswang Wars. Hopefully the author will have done enough research...maybe there will be some of the other cool monsters in your piece. -tries to read them all- What is a mameleu? Is that kind of like bakunawa?

Thanks! That would be an interesting series and hoping it stays within the lore, and not just a Filipinized Twilight series. I hope it finds its way to the Philippines so I can critique it. Yup!

Wala pa for selling. As I'm writing this reply, I'm actually wearing one already! It's just that I'm not yet satisfied with the printing, so I'm afraid of selling it yet. I'm still looking for a printer who will handle the graphic perfectly.
