    Villamor Cruz was born drawing. You could find him making up entire worlds with whatever objects he could find. A salt shaker became a robot. The table cloth became a vast desert. All the notepads and napkins in the house would be used up to store and record the stirrings of his mind. Despite his parents' wishes for him to become either a doctor or a priest, he has been able to make a living by simply drawing and playing.
