I'm Mawee Borromeo, an illustrator and graphic designer based in Manila, Philippines.


I take a lot of inspiration from Japanese shoujo aesthetic (heavily influenced

by Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura growing up), Pop Art portraits, nature,

and all things fashion and beauty.


My choice of medium is usually digital, but I’ve also grown a passion for painting recently, both watercolour and acrylic (#MaweePaints).

On weekends, you can find me trying to fill up large canvases by painting, watching reruns of my favourite sitcoms, or enjoying an unhealthy amount of iced coffee.
