Sarimanok

Pen & Ink

The sarimanok is a mythical rooster found in many stories among the tribes of the island of Mindanao. It too is commonly depicted in the arts and crafts of the region.

This rainbow plumed bird has a multitude of stories about it that there is no one “true story”. In one case, it is the messenger of the gods, sent to punish a haughty princes who was turned into a fish. In another tale, a great warrior turns himself into the sarimanok, and flies off to save his bride. And in a story, the sarimanok was either king of the birds or just lord of all fowl.

Here the sarimanok’s illustration is influenced by the okir style of carving of the Maranao.

Maraming salamat

Sa totoo lang, itong likha ay nagawa ko noong 1997 pa. Pero ako'y naglilikha ng ganitong kabusising bagay mula bata pa ako . . . at hindi ang "talent" ang problema, kundi ang aking kailangan malagpasan ang aking pagkainipin para makatapos ng ganitong trabaho.

Ngayon, pagkatapos ng halos 40 taong ng pagawa ng mga madetalyeng sining, masasabi ko na ma'control' ko ang aking inip :)

Thanks Maria

The technique of illustrating incorporates the Moro (Philippine Islamic groups) floral art style called 'ukil' (Tausug) or 'okir' (Maranao), whom I lived with for a while and mastered the technique

Omg thank you so much <3 They are truly wonderful. I've started doing some studies on them as soon as I've saw them. Damn the Birdo is hard to do though :< But I shall not give up! No design will ever defeat me :la:

The whole idea of creating an Okkir design is to think it is like a large fern/vine growing through your design to form a new image

You can do it :)

To be honest, I've been too busy with a whole lot of things, that I haven't time to do art. I just simply uploaded some old works to share :)

But I will start with the collaboration as soon as this month ends. By that time I have submitted all grades and the semester is over and the vacation starts

School here in the Philippines starts in June (after the harvest season, which most kids don't know anymore because of the ubanization) and ends in March

Take your time, no rush, the piece I'm doing is going in it's own direction. Interpretive I would say, though you will recognize it from various elements.
