comic art by Nestor Infante

Nestor Infante was a comic artist from the Philippines, also known as Ernesto Infante and Tor Infante. He studied fine arts and commercial arts, and took a course in comics illustration at the Nestor P. Redondo studio. Infante's first stint as a professional artist was with the East Asian Parish Institute, illustrating scenes from the Bible. In 1974 he stepped into the comics world through Mars Ravelo's RAR Publishing house, for which he illustrated Ravelo's 'Sisid, Dyesebel and Sisid'. Outside of RAR, Infante teamed up with R.R. Marcelino for the adventure fantasy story 'Tiny Tom', which was published in Funny Komiks.

Like many cartoonists from the Philippines, Infante has also worked for the US market. He was a contributor to the DC mystery titles 'The Unexpected' and 'House of Mystery' in the early 1980s. Then in the 1990s he drew 'Ms. Mystic' and 'Megalith' for Continuitiy, and some work for Acclaim Comics. Infante's style was greatly influenced by the works of Nestor Redondo. He was also a big admirer of Howard Pyle, Frank Frazetta, Alex Toth, and Alex Niño. He was also active as a painter.
