Mark Nino Balita
Nino loves to draw cute, funny cartoon illustrations of people and animals. Nino prefers to draw something positive and lively, his art style is sketched and very loose. It actually makes him smile when people say “Oh, this one looks like it was drawn by a kid” because he believes that is the best way to approach artwork for children. Nino always wants children to feel inspired and confident, he hopes that when they see his work, they can say, “I can do that, too!"
