Behance Portfolio Review Cebu Recap

Last May 16 and 17 Cebu had its first ever Behance Portfolio Review. To everybody that's new to this review thing, Behance is a globally known online portfolio platform for designers, illustrators, photographers, and arists. Behance has a biannual portfolio review where young designers, illustrators, photographers, and artists are given a chance to present their portfolio to a set of panelists who are professionals in the industry, the panelist will give creative input about their portfolio after they have presented. In other parts of the world the categories per review are much more vast ranging from installation art, music, and many more, but this year for Cebu there were three categories for the reviews Graphic Design, Illustration and Photography.

The event also had various speakers like Inodoro, Happy Garaje, Dexter Bongo, and Anjo Bolarda. There was also an art market where local artists, and crafters sold awesome artworks and merchandise.

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone
