About Art and Finance

Founded in 2014 by Ramon Rodrigo Cuenca, CFA, Art and Finance is a multimedia venture that provides vlogs, comics, and fine art for global urban professionals:

  • Vlogs on Business and Lifestyle: We produce videos that explain and analyze businesses and economies in an understandable, informal, and entertaining manner. For example, our video on the Japanese economy combined Japan’s economic history with a travel vlog on Tokyo.
  • Webcomics: Our ongoing web manga, Ilusion, tells the story of a group of financial analysts as they learn about business and the economy. Occasionally, we also produce shorter comics, such as Yoga Quest, a comic strip about yoga.
  • Fine Art: Ramon creates fine art based on our comics, vlogs, and other projects. Mediums he works in include acrylic, colored ink, and watercolor.

Here’s some press exposure on Art and Finance: here and here.

You can access our online store for merchandise.

We’ve also launched First World Manila, a sub-brand of Art and Finance that focuses on educating readers about what can be done to improve the standard of living in Manila, Philippines.
