Ang Sabi ni Nanay, Ang Sabi ni Tatay
Watercolor and Pencil
“Ang Sabi ni Nanay, Ang Sabi ni Tatay” (What Mama Says, What Papa Says) is a story written by Sacha Calagopi and published by UNICEF Philippines under their Children First! Storybooks series. The book was first published years ago, with illustrations by Paolo Lim. I was asked to re-illustrate the story and give it my own take, for re-release in 2015. The story is about gender stereotypes and teaching kids that they don’t have to stick to traditional conventions on “what girls should do” and “what boys should do.”
