How My Brother Leon Brought Home a Wife

I was absorb the whole day rereading a book that once inspired me to write. First read it when I was in High-school as part of our English class literature material. Manuel E. Arguilla to me has remained one of those Filipino wordsmith that has used English as if it were a Philippine dialect. 

 And back in College I was able to acquire this First edition 1940 Collections of his short-stories.... it was that time when the so called modern era we now experience was slowly  seeping in....yet there was that simplicity...the raw and rugged imagery....something that I barely knew and experience.

   The journey to life isn't a walk in the park. Memories flooded from a half remembered past. Vivid carelessness which focuses on scamp details. 

Would be releasing a bolder-braver-more open red-pill giver person soon. It has to be, it must be done...time draws near.

Better gear-up, the release and unleash is almost here.  

Non-conformist to the system due to conscience and to stand up for what you boundaries that limit where to go...only within the norm...mostly conservative with a bit of liberalism in the sense that you does not hermitage your self without humor....anyways, as I was saying, would you still be allowed to flourish as a creative individual...compensated fairly or get promoted?  

 Some of the words may not actually mean to you now...but it will. Does anyone still read. I trust there will...people would be searching...for they knew something wrong is going. 
   There will be individual would Care...late awakens. Their last chance...

As an Inspiration

A definite goal...what is success to you...not from anybody else? For obvious reasons the "means" have become the pinnacle of success instead of what we really wanted in our life. Gold is simply an object or the means where we could trade them for other things or as beautification....or simply put to fulfill what we a vehicle to reach goals but others have made the automobile an end it itself....and so I have to do another thinking. 
   So, okay although I have set my path on different perspective which is living by the beauty of the moment....with lots and lots of common sense actually. 
   I'm just very grateful that I can still paint...have you realized the values of these art materials?  Just the ability and having the opportunity is enough to be cheerful for...some people don't have that privilege or luxury of time. 

So I just paint...maybe to become at least as an inspiration from the hassle and bustle of this crazy world. 
   But are you going to have a fair battle? 


   And yes we know that it has always been the push and pull between the good and the bad. We are in the world but not of the World.... constantly press from all sides. We carry our own....yet Yahuah God will never forsake us, those who believe and trust in behalf of  Christ Yahusha's name who redeem us. 
   How could the inspired lose hope? It's my goal to inspire people. 

I don't wait for inspiration...I create inspiration.

Overwhelm them with Positive Things

Open rebuke is better than secret love. -- Proverbs 27:5

What's going on? I couldn't believe what my senses are experiencing. Good things are being ignored now and sometimes worst, those people who share good news are ridiculed. Most people have lost their sense on what is good...because we let it happened...and maybe because over zealous God loving people pester us with too much of love and faith...Darkness hate the light, and the world have embrace darkness unknowingly. 
Well I'm not going to nag you on these,  but as usual I feel compel to speak out

What does human produce...The number one is armament, next liquor and cigarette, third is pharma...on the internet is pornography. What kind of people have we become? 

“In the scientific world the question of pornography effects is no longer a hot issue. It’s really not debated anymore. The scientists and professionals are no longer ‘pretending not to know.’ The new pornography commission is almost redundant. Everybody knows that pornography can cause harm, it can also change people’s sexual appetites, values and behavior. . . . It’s a power form of education. It can also condition people into deviancy. It can also addict. There are too many articles in the scientific journals as well as current books reviewing research attesting to this for anybody to deny its effects anymore.”-- Dr. Victor Cline

The solutions already exist.

Welcome to my Love-hate relationship with paper. The story starts during the first day of our summer visual art workshop at Cultural Center of the Philippines, when our teacher crumpled the paper and asked us (the work-shopper) to draw them...and that begun to re-awaken my dream as an artist.

The Values of Value

Image may contain: 1 person

It really surprises me that I can still surprise myself. By merely focusing on tonal values I can now create better likeness with ease. It started with that trial on a Jordan Peterson painting that I made....basically the blocking technique where I manipulate the surface to copy the subject came from a method of Andrew Tischler but the importance of values came from every other videos who seems to talk mostly about it. Me too, I casually talk about it but never really taken that into serious focus until Stefan Baumann's inspirational and conceptual lecture brought me into its utmost importance...specially the lighting. 

   How to divide the image into chunk and the relative surrounding shape, shade, and simply looking at the shapes of tones and not really minding anything else I could actually replicate complicated images. 
   Still trying to adapt on this method...will be another journey to follow...

The magnetism is coming thru as you command all the water to follow...
