‘MATANGLAWIN’ on TV recently featured Harvey Tolibao, Pinoy international comic artist. He is known as a penciller, illustrator, and one of the artists of HMT Studios based in Quezon City.

Harvey has drawn for DC’s Green Arrow and Green Lantern. His first DC projects were “Star Wars,” “Iron Man,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” and “Psylocke.”

“Psylocke” was the book that placed his name in the comic book industry. His latest project is the cover for Marvel’s “Uncanny Inhumans” that came out in August.

Harvey’s advice: “Show, share what you can do. Dun mo makikita ang capability mo.”
