For Romy Tarini, illustrating comics is his speciality and first love. He enjoys drawings which tell a story. Romy has transferred that same love of story telling to painting scenes on jeepneys, each a picture of the Philippines. The endless possibilities and the infinite beauty of the Philippines offer opportunities for Romy to showcase his inspiration on the jeepney – the national Philippine symbol.
Physically limited to a wheelchair since birth due to cerebral palsy, Romy is not confined in his creativity. His wife and young son inspire Romy to use his artistic talents to recognize the scenery around him. Often times, his young son, who has inherited his father’s creativity, makes requests for the jeepney collection. “My family inspires me to create, to paint,” Romy proudly explained.
