Brand New Day

Hello, and welcome to! My name is Gab Madrid, and I love to draw. I made this blog so I could have a personal place in the cloud where I can share my thoughts and ideas on various things related to the work I do and love.

I will be writing about (mostly personal) projects that I am working on. I have a lot of ideas lined up in my head just waiting to be created and developed, and I’d like this blog to be a place for that.

I also plan to write about events related to the industry I work in, such as Graphika Manila (happening next Saturday!) or Form, Function & Class by the Philippine Web Designers’ Organization.

There are also a lot of things I’d like to cover, such as other people’s work but I’ll usually focus on:

  • Illustration
  • Graphic Design
  • Branding and Identity Design
  • Comics
  • Animation
  • Concept Art

This blog is still under construction and will be subject to some more changes in the coming weeks, so please bear with me! I’m also open for link and art trades! Just send me an email at or tweet me up at @gabmadrid.

Note: The title of this post is a reference to Lie To Me’s opening theme “Brand New Day” by Ryan Star.
