Got Featured in Mindanao Times YAY

"How would you describe your art style?"
“Like a drawing of an 8-year-old but with a quirky surprise”

I did not expect to see this article about my illustrations on the front page of the news paper lol. Thank you, Jesse, for this awesome writeup!

I thought I’d make myself a list of the things I should avoid doing before they form into a habit (although some of them are already are). But I figured I’ll probably lose that written (or mentally-written) checklist before I could even start thinking seriously about doing something about the said list. Missed out a lot of “unhealthy” stuff that should be included there i.e. slouching, not washing my hands after a forceful cat-snuggling, habitual nail biting, etc.

Sometimes I like to watch sappy romantic movies to counter the rising levels of metaphorical testosterone in my body.

elbertor said: Hello! Not sure how else to contact you, but have you considered compiling your diaries into comic books? :)

O HAI! I did print a few copies way back in an attempt to produce a zine. Wasn’t able to follow through after that as I did not have the time anymore to draw on a regular basis.

My week in a jpeg, week #20. 
MOODSWING. In the  truest sense of the word. 
Also spent the whole weekend at a new beach resort away from the city to attend a wedding. Best wishes to the both of you, Ate and Kuya! <3

Instead of wasting my time planning about how to make up for the weeks I missed on my weekly doodle (which I&#8217;m hoping to finish in the coming days), I finally decided to skip those weeks first and move on to the recent ones. 
Here&#8217;s my first make up post, week #19. 
I have been monitoring my weight since April because I was aiming to achieve my target weight before the tournament in MNL. Discipline was the only thing I needed to do it and the one thing I never had (well, except for this week). 
A lot of things happened when I was in Manila, mostly hapless ones brought about by my own carelessness. Nevertheless, I am still happy I went there as the new experiences and learning were priceless. Congratulations to all my teammates. Til the next tourney! Oss!

Awesome digital portrait made by Alben Tan. It doesn&#8217;t look exactly like me (fuller lips, unkempt hair, slight underbite) but it&#8217;s still actually pretty rad that it makes bragging this artwork mandatory.
