ABOUT THE ARTIST
Madonna Angeles-Davidoff is a Filipino, American and Swiss rolled into one whose artistry have become pervasive in three continents with a stroke of a paint brush or pencil. This New York-based artist was born and schooled in Manila. She considers famous Philippine artist Larry Alcala (way back in her college days in UP) and New York artist Matt Madden (School of Visual Arts in NYC) as motivated to boost her skills in cartooning.
Madonna created Little Mado, the cartoon series in 2011 after having been inspired by grade school friends whom she reconnected through social media. The amusing memories they shared online actually gave birth to the cartoon Little Mado.
The artist in her got inspired and illustrated those shared memories and posted her own personal experience on social media. Interestingly, it got a lot of positive feedback which prompted Madonna to take seriously making a graphic novel or comicbook.
OSM! features weekly the Little Mado series starting in this issue.
