    Starting yesterday, some Filipino artists online have tweeted or shared on their social media platforms about how some of their international commissions have pulled out due to the recent Philippine election-related events. These shares include screenshots of PMs with international clients, some of which mentioned that they “don’t want to have anything to do with the Philippines” or that “it’s too risky”

    While it’s disheartening to see Filipino artists get their commissions canceled due to recent events, the bright side is that there are still lots of people from outside the country that support Pinoy creators. Here’s hoping that the situation improves for these Filipino artists soon.
