Esquire Philippines turns five
It's Esquire Philippines' fifth anniversary, and we’re celebrating with a special all-illustrated issue. This October, we have five covers by five different artists across different mediums: Annie Cabigting, Carlo Vergara, Gary-Ross Pastrana, Blic, and Derek Tumala.
Inside, we explore the nature of art in its various stages, forms, and functions: Manuel Ocampo talks about the ruin of the local art scene and society’s new drugs; Noel Pascual and Sarge Lacuesta face fear in graphic fiction for our Notes and Essays; comic book artist Whilce Portacio talks to Butch Dalisay about the full potential of Filipino illustrators; Clinton Palanca takes stock of the Duterte administration after the first 100 days; Carlo Vergara imagines contemporary punk fashion in the far future; Krip Yuson discusses the false death of books; Costantino Zicarelli, Sheen Ochavez, and Joseph Tecson paint the muse.
Read all these and more in the October 2016 issue of Esquire Philippines. A digital edition is available here.
