Who’s not aware of Walt Disney films? We lived and some of us still living in fairy tales brought by famous cartoon films, enhanced by good music accompaniment, dubbed by Hollywood actors and drawn by expert cartoonist. Who would believe that behind those artistic manifestations is a Filipino.

Joe Mateo is a Fine Arts graduate from University of Santo Tomas. Some of his famous works are Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notre Dame and the Meet the Robinsons. He even launched his own comic book.

Take a look and be proud for being a Filipino.
