I'm Dan Matutina, a designer/illustrator from the Philippines. I create, design, illustrate socially driven works. People say my illustrations look acidic and I agree. I've always been fascinated with simple lines, shapes and textures. I lecture graphic design at the University of the Philippines (College of Fine Arts, Visual Communications Department) and I find the interaction with students exciting. I also bend forks into bracelets... that's how I got my online name.
