About Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan

Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan (Ang INK) is the Philippines’ first and only organization of artists dedicated to children’s illustration. 

Ang INK was founded in June 1991, the offshoot of a Children's Book Illustration workshop sponsored by the PBBY (Philippine Board on Books for Young People) and the Goethe-Institiute Manila which was conducted by visiting German book illustrator Reinhard Michl.Ang INK strives to enrich and elevate the visual art of illustration while contributing to the continued professionalization of the industry. 

While primarily illustrating for children, Ang INK has claimed its place as an organization—creating art not just for children but for all who are young at heart!
