EDC BINHI, Energy Development Corporation’s environment program, commissioned me to illustrate select Philippine endemic and native flora and fauna under their Flagship Species Initiative (FSI) – a biodiversity conservation project which generally aims to protect selected threatened flora & fauna species in EDC’s geothermal and wind project sites. These species are:
📍 Bacon-Manito Geothermal Project – Albay and Sorsogon –
Flora: Mapilig (Xanthostemon bracteatus) | Fauna: Golden-crowned Flying Fox (Acerodon jubatus)
📍 Tongonan Geothermal Project (TGP) – Leyte –
Flora: Katmon Bayani (Dillenia megalantha) | Fauna: Philippine Warty Pig (Sus philippensis)
📍 Southern Negros & Northern Negros Geothermal Project (SN/NNGP) – Negros Islands –
Flora:  Red Lauan (Shorea negrosensis) | Fauna: Visayan Hornbill (Penelopides panini)
📍 Mt. Apo Geothermal Project (MAGP) – Cotabato –
Flora: Almaciga (Agathis philippinensis) } Fauna: Apo Myna (Goodfellowia miranda)
📍 Burgos Wind Power (BWP) – Ilocos Norte –
Flora: Igem-dagat (Podocarpus costalis)

The illustration process was carefully guided by EDC BINHI’s foresters which made it possible for me to render the species as accurately as possible. I chose to use a line drawing technique (as opposed to my usual painterly style) in order to highlght and define each species’ unique features. These drawings were then used on t-shirts, bags, and other merchandise (soon to be available in my webshop), and some other items for the organization’s exclusive use.

Tippi Ocampo fashion design book

Plus63 Design Group tapped me to create a t-shirt design for Uniqlo Philippines’ UTMeArtPh x Fiesta Collection, along with fellow graphic designer-illustrators Frances Alvarez and Karl Adrian Aguro / Uncurated Studio. The Philippine festival assigned to me was Baguio’s flower festival, “Panagbenga.” I chose to incorporate native flowers that grow in Luzon, such as Ilang-ilang, Banaba, and Narra, and kept exotic species like sunflowers (which are comonly used in the festival) as adornments on the dancing couple.

As someone who wears Uniqlo clothing on the regular, working on this design was a complete thrill. Many thanks to Dan Matutina and Dang Sering of Plus63 for the trust.

Googoo & Gaga shirts by Cynthia Arre

Local kids’ clothing brand Googoo&Gaga started an Artist Collaboration Series in December 2010. I was invited to collaborate in 2016 and the theme was “forest animals”. Keeping the brand’s offbeat image in mind, I thought of drawing zebras and giraffes because of their distinct patterns and decided to dress them up in colorful human clothing, posing against a background pattern of tropical foliage.
