Kneil Melicano is a fresh graduate of Visual Communication and Design major in Advertising and works as a multimedia designer in the Manila. He retires every night in his humble apartment to a night of psychobabbling and sarcasm, accompanied with coffee or dimsums and beer for most of the time thanks to his roommates. If he's not arguing with them how the world would end, he's probably slumped on his sketchbook, lost in the space of time and the fractures of his imagination.

I probably spend too much money on good wine and chocolate. I would rather watch cartoons than sit through a ceremony of any sort."
