My husband Arnold and I attended the much-awaited 2022 reunion concert of the Eraserheads, “Ang Huling El Bimbo” last December 22 and it was pretty amazing to see them take the stage again after all this time. (Here’s an IG reel that I posted the day after.)┬á I’ve said time and again that I’m very grateful to the Eheads and, post-disbandment, Sony BMG for the many times they asked me to design their albums and other side projects in the past, but there is no documentation in the current online landscape of the designs I did for them so… *pop* here it is! A compilation of album covers and related whatnot – in photos, text, and links to old blog posts for some backstories. Wish I could share all of the surfaces and pages of the inlays but that would require so much scanning since I don’t have the app for opening the files anymore.

  4. Pepsi Megadrive Eraserheads Promo Poster – 1996. I was an Art Director in Ogilvy handling the PepsiCo. account and this was one of the campaigns I worked on. Neal Oshima is the photographer. Someone uploaded the incomplete TV ad here, Direk Raymond Red is the Director. We filmed it in Filmex for 2 straight days and did the post-prod in Hong Kong.
  5. Pepsi Eraserheads Calendar – 1997. I was the Art Director for this poster too, and Neal Oshima is the photographer. I asked Ogilvy’s studio artist Jun Dablo to illustrate a crowd scene so that the Eheads will appear to be crowdsurfing. :’D
