BY MADS BAJARIAS | Arnel Telesforo's poster for the Palawan Bird Festival, an event organized by the Wild Bird Club of the Philippines, to popularize birdwatching and raise the public's awareness about Philippine birds and their habitats. The splendid bird featured is the male Palawan Peacock-pheasant (Polyplectron emphanum), a creature that can only be found in the lowland forests of Palawan.
Telesforo's illustration-poster for the Cebu Bird Festival. The feet seem more polished and nicer here than those in the Palawan poster. Aside from being an artist, animator and filmmaker, Telesforo is also a teacher and a keen birdwatcher.
