“My experience with Cirilo Bautista was interesting. I don’t have a lot of experience reading poetry, so it was a bit intimidating at first. One thing I like about Cirilo Bautista’s work is it’s rich with imagery. My strategy was to do automatic drawings based on the first images I think of when I read the work. I didn’t force myself to exactly depict what he was saying, rather, I tried to add another layer
of abstraction on top of his metaphors.”
