A Day with Styles, Strokes and Sketches Society

Friday the 13th (September)...on my way to Makati City for a a sketching session with Styles, Strokes, and Sketches Society and an Angel travel with me (left photo). Maestro Jose Tolentino Jimenez invited me for that sketching with Vince Roque at Sir Pops (Noel David) studio. I miss this kind of gathering as Vince said that we need some bonding time sometimes. 
   The theme of our sketching was  "Holy Cow" to counter the bad vibes of Pork Barrel scam. Sir Pops is the Brain of 4S and it would be our first meeting too. He had this 80 year old Hindu sculpture or idols that he want to get rid off...but first we need to create an artwork out of it....

   I become member of 4S thru Joan Honoridez on October 2, 2012. I become inactive by the end of that year due to so many factor, one is my computer bogged down. 
   Basically 4S is a Tournament site...where patience and determination is a virtue. The Master's Challenge keep the page active where member artist have to render the Photo entry from other artist...or a portrait exchange. Then there's the Monthly Tournament for real bucks in Dollars. No other group in FB can give you that....

   A single day isn't enough to bond with these people so I stayed for an overnight...and attended the Awarding Ceremony the next day. 
     Here are some of the images with 4S.
