Elmer Damaso is best known for his artwork for the title “One Day, Isang Diwa” and his own title, “Cat’s Trail” in Culture Crash Comics.
After years of closing CCCom, he has independently published Cat’s Trail to the delight of old fans and new readers. Not only that, he has been awarded a finalist in the finalist for the International Manga Awards in 2007 plus he currently works for K-Zone locally and in Australia and for DC-Lego’s Hero Factory. His most inspiring words for artists who want to go into comics are “Huwag mawalan ng loob kung hindi niyo afford yung mga mas mamahaling gamit na popular sa mga makabagong artists ngayon. Hindi ito hadlang sa inyong pag-unlad. Ang mongol pencil na nasa kamay ng magaling na artist ay kayang matalo ang Staedtler na nasa kamay ng artist na hindi kayang gamitin ito”.
