John Paul Uy, also known as Jepoykalboh, is a concept artist from the Philippines. At 21 years old, he started his career as a book illustrator in a publishing company in his country. Amazed and inspired by the beauty of concept arts, he found himself improving his skill in digital painting. Eventually, he decided to embark on a new career path where he could improve his CG skills. He was hired as a concept artist in Softnyx , a Philippine-based Korean online gaming company. There, he has found more avenues to exercise his skills in creative expression by designing characters, painting posters and texturing UV maps for 3D models.
Jepoykalboh also does some traditional artworks such as charcoal, pencil, and color pencil portraits while sipping a venti of frappuccino blended coffee drink (green tea frappuccino is his favorite) at Starbucks. He never stops from learning, because for him learning, just like creativity, is endless.
