“Young cat, if you keep your eyes open enough, oh, the stuff you would learn. The most wonderful stuff.” - Dr. Seuss

Hello again, it’s me.

Wow, in four days it will be a year since I last updated this blog! Where did the time go? I don't even know what to write about here anymore. *sheepish grin* There are actually TWO things that prompted me to post an update. 1) A conversation I had with my friend ...

Summer rain, dripping down your face again

Sigh, my only excuse for not updating except is that I've been preoccupied ((With this, this, this, this, and this.)). Anyway, here are a few notes: - * It's been out for a while but here's a plug nonetheless: our mag Wedding Essentials came out with the annual Beautiful Weddings issue last ...

There’s a silver lining in the corporate cloud.

Sorry for the lack of updates, too many things IRL ((in real life, lest you've forgotten)) were keeping my hands full. Most notably, our bi-annual labor of love: The new Wedding Essentials (July-December 2007) issue is out, and has actually been out for a while now. In case you haven't seen ...

Can you feel it? (Turn up your stereo!)

I have a confession to make: ever since Twitter invaded my life, I've been too lazy to update the normal way. But rather than let this webspace go to waste ((And yes, it's been paid for til the end of the year.)), here's one big fat update coming up. So ...

Riding around in a Volkswagen van, thinkin’ ’bout the people upside down in Japan

Halloo, Arn and I are back from a brief vacation in Japan ((Obviously we love the place, that's why we keep going back. Add to that the fact that my Papa always invites us over and generously sponsors our trip. :))) with my family. This time we took a Shinkansen ...

The past is a parade of countless days.

Sigh, vacation's over. Arn and I are back from Japan but it hasn't quite sunk in yet ((I bowed and almost uttered "arigato" to the customs officer at NAIA. This is what happens when you spend two weeks in Japan. (You just gotta love the Japanese, they're such a polite ...

I got your picture of me and you.

CSB and Cebu.

Thank you, Getty Images. Gorillaz + Madonna: what an audio-visual feast huh?? *** About a week ago, our good friend Earnest invited Arn to talk to the students of CSB's School for Deaf Education and Applied Studies and what an experience that was. About 50 Deaf students (and a handful of hearing ...

I apologize for being in a bad mood today but a certain "Totally Creative Graphic Design Studio" totally ripped off one of my original artworks and is selling it on notepads, journals and other stationery in their store "Invitation House".

I don’t have a reason, but I live like I do

In an alternate reality, the Eraserheads actually released an 8th final full-length album titled Waltz This Knee containing 8 new tracks by the Philippines' fab four. This is the album's wraparound sleeve that I designed: In this reality however, the revolutionary team of Uno Magazine invited me to illustrate a piece ...
