About Me

My name is Mela Pagayonan and welcome to my personal space on the Internet.

In the real world space, I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in the beautiful Beach neighbourhood.  I share a small apartment with my partner and our cat in a heritage building just a block away from the water.

I was a professional artist; I am a graduate of  Sheridan College Animation School (class of ’96) and have been involved with projects such as Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, Eternal Darkness, and various animated commercials, and television shows. I’ve taken an almost decade-long hiatus from my personal art and now I’m re-training myself.  My goal eventually would be illustrating graphic novels and storybooks. This website is where I like to show off my work and progress.

I’m nowhere near where I want to be with my art, but who ever is?  If you have any feedback, or words of advice, or you’re on the same journey too, don’t hesitate to share your thoughts.
