"I go by Justus Buenaflor, or simply thenakedjustus. I’m an illustrator from Toronto and I’m currently attending OCAD University for it. I hate eggplants, I eat my spaghetti with Doritos (sweet chilli pepper are the best), and I wish I was a pirate.
As for my art, I draw them with pencil, sometimes use graphite powder for an even gradation, and scan them, usually in 800 DPI. I colour them digitally, and what I like about digital illustrations are the idea that I can add in very graphic, vector additions in the illustration, which I find very attractive. I also use a cheap Bamboo Wacom tablet.
I get inspired mostly by Japanese prints, VICE magazine (articles, docs, etc), the ugly and deformed, masks, and cognitive & abnormal psychology. Also by the bands I listen to affects my work as well, and right now, its Neutral Milk Hotel, The Hidden Cameras, Little Girls, Kontravoid, The Smiths (Hatful of Sorrow) and old-school anime techno (hahaha).”
