Noly Panaligan was 16 when he met Francisco V. Coching, who immediately became Noly's hero. Noly believed that Coching was the Philippine's best and greatest komiks illustrator. Recognizing Noly's talent, Coching took the young artist under his wing and he became his student.

Coching was responsible for giving Noly his break by recommending him to be one of the artists on the Philippine's very first serialized comic book, Halakhak Komiks.

He would continue to work on Liwayway, and on comics published by ACE Publications including Tagalog Klasiks, where he wrote and drew what eventually became considered his masterpiece, Payaso.

Noly eventually moved to advertising, accepting Mauro Malang Santos's invitation to be a part time editor and artist for Chronicle Publications. He worked next for Admakers where he won an Art Director's Club award for Ad Illustration.

Noly then ventured into animation, doing title and scenic illustration for two documentaries with Lamberto Avellana, produced by Dean Alejandro Roces. Both films were entered in two Bilbao Film Festivals in Spain, winning awards each time.

He never fully left comics, having worked through Tony DeZuniga and Nestor Redondo to illustrate Jonah Hex, Ghosts, The Unexpected and House of Mystery for DC Comics and Vampirella, Sherlock Holmes, etc, for Warren Publications.

Noly Panaligan passed away on June 23, 2004 of heart failure.
