direction

what is the use of running if we are on the wrong side? direction is more important than speed. there’s someone really close to my heart who’s using this quote and i’ve been meaning to use this picture years ago… sige na nga, kinuha ko to nung april 2008. wahahaha. kumusta naman… and i’m particularly fond of the shoes, they’re my first pair of chucks! so ayan kinalabasan!

i guess it means that as long as we have goals and as long as we pursue those goals then it doesn’t matter how long it takes us to get there… ilang miles per hour kaya ako? hehehe.  i do have a few things i want to accomplish in life…pero saken nalang yun! on the other hand, minsan i take the quote literally. i don’t really have good direction skillz, ako na naliligaw sa mall. lol. but you know, i used to ask him for directions, yung mga pasikot sikot kung saan, and has never failed me.

so there, i hope you liked my art.

yun lang.

theskyisthelimit

the sky is the limit … this is what i want to be able to tell my future kids when we go out. hehehe. anyhoo, i’ve been trying to take cloud pixxors for the past week and all we had here were cirrus patches which weren’t what i was looking for… until yesterday, when there were some fat cumulus ones hanging low, which were perfect.

ayun, headed to the rooftop and aimed at the sky… this is actually inspired by an email from an old manager, before he left work, which had the following “if people respect you, they will listen. so be better tomorrow than you are today. the better you are the greater your value will be… no matter what the cost is, keep growing and learning.”

i’m a big fan of this manager, he’s kind, witty, not to mention super gwapo. hahaha. he’s the first person to recognize that i like art even if we deal with mathematics and numbers everyday. he must have meant a lot of things here but from what i understand , i think it means that we all have potential… sky high. that we just need to believe in ourselves and work on it.

this really inspired me, there’s a lot of things that i want to get better at, cooking for instance, although i make edible things nao. hahaha. eun, sana nagustuhan nyuuu. i’ll try to be better with my art din.

yun lang.

swimming with dolphins

swimming with dolphins … please view with firefox if you can’t see it, other browsers destroy my codes.

it’s been a while since i made typography art… super busy lang sa work and all. anyhoo, this is because he really likes the band, swimming with dolphins… hahaha and it’s my rest day and i was just thinking of him. hihihi. ang hirap ng kinikilig. wah. i do weird things when i have a crush… fatawad.

i’m not into synth music pero… i find swimming with dolphins really cool. my current favorite song from them is happiness, which sounds really pretty. love the part that goes… so if this is making you happy, then this is making me happy~ so eun, i hope you liked it. wheeeee~

ikuzo!

Posted on: March 5, 2011

i’ve been meaning to catch up with my typography… i haven’t done anything in ps in ages. so… naghahanap ako ng inspirasyon, pero after ten million years wala talagang pumapasok sa utak ko, hahaha! anyway, i was cleaning and i found the free drink stub from miming’s twinkle twinkle event… eh i thought why not make one for ikuzo, miming’s other band, aside from moonlight avery.

so here’s a little something for ikuzo, please view with firefox, other browsers tend to destroy my codes.

ikuzo

let’s go! … i think that’s what it means. max keeps saying ‘iko’ every now and then. it means ‘that’ though in korean, which makes me look at something when she does say that. i wasn’t requested to do this unlike the one i made for moonlight avery. gusto ko lang… i like both bands though so no frontin, dun even! hehehe.

anyhoo, you can like them here.

yun lang.

the first time i saw max, aba… kawaii! hanggang ngayon naman eh. tapos tinabihan niya ko sa training namin dahil akala niya magka-age kami. hehehe. so eun, isang taon na pala kaming magkaibigan. so ibig sabihin, isang taon na kaming nagwiwindow shopping sa sm, lumalamon, nagkukulitan at nagduet ng mga kanta ni taylor swift. heeeee~!

at dahil birthday mo ngayon bebs, otanjoubi omedeto! diba, napangakuan kita ng typography art noon, and i used the purimonyorori2 font which you liked! heto…

happy birthday bebs … at more birthdays to come! thanks for showing and teaching me how to be happy even in little ways. ayusin na natin mga adventures natin next year! rabuuu always. at si boa nalang papakantahin ko… dahil di ako marunong maghapon. hehe.

yun lang.

ang product specific training namin parang jonin exams sa naruto. nyahehehehe. even though i’m familiar with the product already, it’s tough and kind of too serious. so i try to find ways to make it more bearable… lolz. so pinapagawa kami ng name tents nung mahigpit naming trainer. and i came up with this…


caramelai

typographers have their own special font. well, everyone loves helvetica. hehehe. but i just found mine! it’s called caramella. i just thought it was pretty and it’s a version of my name too. hihihi.

yun lang.

demon fist

this is kind of long overdue kase i got really sick… at heto na nga! this was inspired by one of my wavemates in si-bee-gi, paul, who also goes by silverdemonfist. eh naglogin kasi siya bigla sa ym. hahaha.

what makes this one really special is that i’ve finally mastered lining and shadowing when i did this. i know it’s easy… i mean super dali but it just feels so nice when i envision something and i could really make it already in ps. the closest to this one is the one i made for moonlight avery. anyhoo, i’ve decided to turn this into a shirt, so please say hello to my model, ark.

kaya lang mukhang maamo … hahaha. cute boy is cute. ahaha! kind of looks like miming in person, except with bigger eyes. has the same energy level too. more pixxors soon at our n00bcakes store. i’m looking for far more appropriate brushes other than blots. hihihi. and yes, i have a short cutesy ‘credits to’ chervams post to follow.

yun lang.
