PinoyLUG Member: Jeffrey Quillope 1978-2015

Jeffrey Quillope was a talented hobbyist of diorama and photography who is also a member of PinoyLUG who passed away early this morning.

We mourn for the loss of a talented artist whose contribution for the group will not be forgotten.

For those who is unaware of Jeff’s work he is known largely in the Philippine toy community as “Toy Photography Addict”, the talented photographer using homemade dioramas as his backdrop for some of his impressive scenes featuring action figures based on characters from popular culture has won him a cult following and awards participating in local contests held in toy events.

He is also the photographer behind the LEGO® Ideas project that Nelson Wu has created and submitted which is the Darth Vader Lightsaber a few months back. Jeff’s recent project is the museum diorama at Isabela, which he finished in eleven days that is also his last project before he succumbed to heart attack. His next project was supposed to be collaboration with PinoyLUG that would feature his works.

We here in PinoyLUG sends our condolences to his family and close friends who will never forget his invaluable talents and the legacy as an artist.

Thank you Jeff for being an enthusiastic talented fan and friend you will be missed.
