Freely Abrigo is the artist for funny characters Kulas, who appears in the Manila Bulletin, and Kapitan Tog, who made his first appearance in the late Funny Komiks and later appears in comic books he independently produces.
He encourages other independent artists with these words: “Isa lng ang masasabi ko… wag matakot. I mean wag matakot maglabas ng komiks na nais mong gawin. Walang limitasyon, walang bawal. Kailangan pa rin magmagmasid sa kapaligiran. Maging aware sa nangyayari sa buhay. Hanapin mo kung ano pa ang kulang mo. Kung san ka mahina.. magpraktis. Maging unique (kakaiba) ang komiks”.
