A Nostalgic Christmas Experience

            It has been far too long since my last Christmas in the Philippines. I am very grateful to be able to experience it this year.
            In my opinion, no other country celebrates Christmas better than the Philippines. Though, the Philippines cannot experience the more familiar "White Christmas", Christmas in the tropics is still fun! I don't remember the last time I celebrated Christmas with my relatives here in the Philippines, but I can still remember the great fun times we had, the laughs of the children, the caroling neighbors, and the nonstop pops, booms and whistles of the fireworks. And now, I get to experience all of it again! Though the fireworks have lessened greatly, as the city government has ruled it dangerous but we still get to see the amazing light show from the star rockets in the night sky during Christmas Eve.
            One thing I do know that differs the Philippines from the other countries I've been to in celebrating Christmas, is that we start early. Christmas decorations are put up as the 'ber' months begin. All the radios begin playing Christmas tunes. Everywhere you go in the country, you will feel the Christmas spirit from everyone you meet, the places you see, the atmosphere itself. To spend Christmas with the relatives after a decade or so, truly is a wonderful and nostalgic experience.
            Thank you God for this opportunity! Happy birthday to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and a very merry Christmas to everyone and a Happy New Year!

University Life is Tiring!!

Me (4th from the right) and my basketball team.
Not only does the academics in my new school time-pressuring and, of course, quite exhausting, I also am a member of my division's basketball team. The practices are very tiring but nevertheless fun! We played a game during the school sportsfest but lost. We are playing another game next year, and the tournament will be even bigger so practices continue.

Other than the basketball team, I am also representing my division along with my friends and classmates in the cheer dance competition. Boy, it is tiring! My body still aches from the practices and workouts! Anyway, that's the update on me and school for now. Stay tuned! :)

Another Manga Drawing!!!

Another recent manga drawing I made. In fact, I drew this guy yesterday. I left him uncolored for lack of good coloring materials. So if you do have some, you can print this drawing and color it. You can even name him. :D 

Hope you like it!

My Most Recent Manga Drawing

I drew this guy only last night. I might color this soon though.

I've been drawing more and more manga lately after months of experimenting with Western style comic art. 

This is my post for now as I will have to find the other drawings I made these past six months. 

What a mess! 

Hope you like it!

Art And Me!

I've neglected my blog for almost six months now but I have never stopped drawing! 

Starting from today, I will be posting more of my artworks of the past six months. I hope you enjoy them. 

I know some of you might already know that I was enrolled in an art school. Well, I've been really busy drawing and I learned a lot from my time there too. They taught me basic drawing skills far from the manga and cartoonish art style that I usually do. And here they are! 

This one is not finished yet but I just thought I might as well share it with you.

This one is my favorite. It took many hours to finish. This is the hardest and most complicated art work I have ever done. Hope you like it!

This was one of my first works during my time in art school.

There will be more drawings posted soon!
