"Material Fool" is a pen and ink drawing on Pinoy mall culture. The artwork focuses on the Pinoy's sometimes excessive predilection for malls: sale, entertainment, shopping, etc., as represented by a fool dancing mechanically to the motion graphics in a video monitor and the beat of loud music. It was adjudged Best Entry during the 57th Art Association of the Philippines (AAP) Annual Art Competition in 2004, held at the GSIS Museum, Pasay City.
