KRING Demetrio is a self-taught illustrator based in Cebu City, Philippines. She mainly draws images based on local folklore or popular myths. Her main inspiration comes from reading old legends, visiting history museums, and obsessing over grotesque art.
Deeply embedded in her drawings, are markings made from empty ballpoint pens, wooden skewers, and invisible ink; usually depicting lines but sometimes, other decorative images or hidden phrases.
She works well with either traditional or digital media, frequently a blend of both. She creates interior or cover illustrations for tabletop games, children's literature, general fiction, album covers, etc.
When she’s not drawing, she can be observed living other lives through books and video games, talking to her plants, or shooting with arrows.
She lives with her partner and their three cats.
