Artist Guest Announcement: Birdy

Posted by Ai Kon on June 5, 2023

Bertrand Crisologo, also known for his art moniker Birdy is a canada-based filipino artist that literally draws inspiration from his childhood interests, which includes the proverbial saturday cartoons, classic video games, hot wheels and japanese subculture of anime. Many know of him for his Car Vlogs and the countless Pokemon wearing Onesies of their evolution illustrations. It’s all about cute mash-ups and unlikely anime crossovers for this one. If you were to sum up the artist’s particular style, it’s fairly ranged in medium, but the mainstay is in his pencil works and sketches and predominantly deals with wholesome anime imagery that plays on nostalgia and feels. At the conventions, you will most likely find custom hand-drawn art, original fan art prints, anime accessories like keychains and decals, and 1-off apparel.
