Why is it only now that human rights issues are coming up when all these killings have been around and rampant even under Aquino?

The Philippines strongly affirms its respect for this milestone decision as an important contribution to ongoing efforts in addressing disputes in the South China Sea. The decision upholds international law, particularly the 1982 UNCLOS.

One of the challenging things about watercolor is how to do shadows. Watercolor is about light and making colors with minimal strokes. Shadows take more paint than usual and can make something look dense. A single layer can make it look flat. So there has to be a balance between color, paint and technique. That is something I am still trying to learn and teach myself. #danaerys #gameofthrones
I don't normally do fanart. Perhaps I should do more of it as a way of practising techniques since most tv shows and movies do dramatic lighting. To help train myself in doing 'different' styles of portraiture in watercolor. I've always wanted to do Danaerys. I already drew images in my mind of ...

I wanted to capture the smile in her eyes and how another one softly played around her lips.
I created two studies of this precocious child and I believe I was finally able to catch her smile with the second one. It was a challenge to paint the first because it had two light sources. It was taken from a pic that gave the photographer her ready smile. 2016-08-07 06.01.27.

Watercolor Portrait 82 of 100: Tony Perez
There was raw energy captured in the photo. Something that I wanted to reproduce in this painting. Which is why I didn’t want it to be a ‘typical’ nice rendition. The brush strokes were fluid and sometimes even shot off the panel. That’s how the photo was. That’s how he is. That’s what I hope this painting illustrated.
What makes a good portrait picture? I can't repeat this enough – it all depends on the photo you give the artist. If you give the artist thumbnails of your ID pic, don't expect it to look like an Amorsolo painting. If you give them a pic that's been blurred and beautified by an app – do expect ...

I wonder if this is the first time we've had vocal and active crusaders, not politicians in key government positions.

A moral victory is like winning a medal but not the game. Or is it the other way around? Either way, the Philippines cannot take pleasure in the triumph. A moral victory is like winning a money judgment against a bankrupt loser. We win but we lose.
On 12 July 2016, an international arbitration panel in Hague, Netherlands meted out a decision that China has no historic title over the waters of the South China Sea and has breached the Philippines' sovereign rights with its actions. What does it mean? Simply put, the islands west of the Philippines in the sea once called “South China Sea” cannot be claimed by China as theirs. In effect, the new title of “West Philippine Sea” has been confirm...

Carlos “Sonny” Dominguez III is not new to politics. He served as Agriculture secretary under Cory Aquino's administration. He also headed the finance committee of Duterte’s presidential campaign. He also contributed in forming Duterte’s 8-point economic agenda.
What makes him stand out is the fact that he speaks our language. He doesn't talk about GDP, Growth Rates and use statistical percentile values to measure his department's achievement. He speaks by using our own experience as basis for this government's goals. Almost half of your (income goes to) the government. You think that's smart? I don't think so. Our administration is not in favour of a system where people cannot plan their lives, cann...

Story
Tagline
Digital Graphic Artist, Webmaster, SEO-Trainer, Multi-media Manager
Introduction
People have asked me what do I do? I tell them I am an artist. My medium has changed throughout the years. I've picked up the mouse and wacom pen after I've discarded my charcoal pencils. Using the computer I've created 3D animation, ads, audio-visual presentations, graphic novels, print ads, marketing collaterals and websites.

For a time, my mind got tired of the technology and my hands turned to wireworks. I created wire-wrapped jewelry for a year to soothe the stress brought by keeping up with the times. Now I turn to another medium. Words. The human mind is my paint and my blog is my canvas.

I shall take it to where I need to go...where I need to be, then I shall move on.

I was able to buy their Mineral Hydrator and I simply love it! It's light enough to wear even in the most humid of weather (I live near the sea) and it gives your skin a natural glow that lasts for hours. Perfect makeup specially during summer!
