A very special collaboration. Artwork for the cover of Daryll Delgado‘s novel, Remains (Ateneo de Naga University Press, 2019).

I am very grateful to the author for her total confidence in my work.

The novel is an amalgamation of spliced recollections by a narrator named Ann, and other characters, about Tacloban City’s devastation in the wake of megastorm Haiyan, locally known as Super Typhoon Yolanda. Tacloban City, the author’s hometown, is part of the province of Leyte, one of the two Philippine islands (the other is Samar) that bore the full brunt of one of the world’s deadliest tropical cyclones, in the catastrophic wake of which roughly ten thousand people died.
