Joel Escol is a frustrated artist and 4th Year Architecture student. He didn't finish his last year in college plus some major subjects due to massive poverty. Out of frustration, he got married and gave up his talent in art and thrashed all his painting materials. Instead, he focused on his work as a Journalist and also on his family. He had forgotten his ultimate dream of establishing a mini art school and teach children all about his brand of artistry.
But the internet and YouTube opened doors to him to live up to his passion in painting and cartooning when he saw great artists and read about their lives.
Now, after 10 years, his passion in painting is here again, as he was more inspired by his over 6,000 neighbors who are survivors of Typhoon Sendong that hit his hometown two years ago and claimed the lives of over a thousand people. Their children needs help to recover from trauma and he believes he can become part of their recovery.
Si Joel Escol usa ka frustrated artist nga anaa na sa iyang ikaupat nga tuig sa Arktekto. Wala niya mahuman ang kolehiyo tungod sa kapobrehon. Sayo siya nga naminyo ug gibiyaan ang iyang talento sa pag-drawing ug iyang gipanglabay ang iyang mga gamit sa pag-drawing. Tungod kay naminyo naman siya, iya na lamang gi-concentrate ang iyang kaugalingon sa iyang trabaho isip Jouranlist sa lokal nga newspaper.
Pero ang internet ug Youtube may nakapaabri pag-usab sa iyang kaikag sa pag-drawing sa dihang iya nabasa ang mga kinabuhi sa mga artist sa tibook kalibutan.
Karon pagkahuman sa napulo ka tuig, iya gibuhi pag usab ang iyang talento sa pag-drawing, ilabina nga na-inspired siya sa iyang mga silingan karon nga mga biktima sa Bagyong Sendong, nga mihapak sa Pilipinas niadtong Desyembre 16, 2011, ug mipatay sa liboan ka mga tawo.
Gusto niya nga makatukod sa art center aron matudloan ang mga anak sa nabiktima sa bagyo ug hinayhinay niini nga malimtan ang ilang masakit nga kasinatian isip survivors sa bagyo.
Right now, Joel has no more art materials left to begin working on major artworks that will inspire kids to learn art too. So, this time he turn to the loyal supporters of Indiegogo to ask for help.
Karon wala na siyay materyales sa pag drawing aron sugdan pag usab ang pagmugna sa mga obra maestra nga makadasig sa mga bata.
