VIRAL: Surreal Crayon Portrait of Apo Whang-od

60-year-old painter Antonio Empleo of Lucban town in Quezon province spent over a month to finish his masterpiece.

"Na-inspire 'yung father ko sa mga gawa ng living legend na si Whang-od sa kanilang lugar," his son Jemil tells CNN Philippines. "Na-challenge rin siya dahil sa details noong balat ni Whang-od."

The younger Empleo is hoping that his father's artwork would also inspire other local artists to pursue their passion for art.
