EVENT: Bill Murray x Baybayin – San Francisco, 8/8/14

Bill Murray Baybayin art

This is a weird one…..Bill Murray X Baybayin! I’m taking part of The Murray Affair: A Bill Murray art show in San Francisco 8/8/14. When I first heard of the show, I thought it would be interesting to see how Bill Murray would look like in Baybayin. “Western” names can be challenging to write. I tried it using the modern method using the vowel killers but it looked too “busy”. I decided to do it traditionally as Bi (Bill) Mu-Re (Murray). I could’ve also done it Me-Re as well but artistically, the composition looked better with the kudlit at the bottom for the Ma character. In the pict, the red marks are the kudlits.

Based on what I’ve seen, most of the art will be portraits. It will be interesting how this pre-Filipino piece goes with the rest of the artwork. To see pix of the event this Friday (San Francisco, US time), follow me on FB/Baybayin.
