Ganito Pala sa Maynila, Fernando AmorsoloThe National Artist Fernando Amorsolo, while known more for his countryside scenes, was also an illustrator for novels and komiks. In fact, he provided the illustrations for the popular comic strip, “Ganito pala sa Maynila,” which satirized the social issues during the American of occupation of the Philippines, serialized in the Bagong Lipang Kalabaw magazine from 1922 to 1924.

Some of Amorsolo’s illustrations from 1909 to 1924 are showcased in “Tell-tale: The Artist as Storyteller, Amorsolo as Co-Author” at the Lopez Museum.

As an illustrator, Amorsolo had collaborated with early twentieth-century writers like Tagalog novelists Iñigo Regalado and Severino Reyes, editor Lope K. Santos, and writer-educator Camilo O. Osias.
