Hello! It’s been a while since I posted something here. 

So yesterday, me and my friends went for a hike (it’s my first time!!) . That was about 3 hours of hiking from the starting point (Ternate, Cavite) up to the peak (Mt. Pico De Loro, Maragondon) Good thing the weather cooperated so the hike went well. Reaching the peak was a liberating feeling and after taking a few photos (and selfies, of course) I was inspired to draw the peaks from the campsite. 

The first one’s the well-known Parrot’s Beak monolith (it was called such because from the monolith’s top, it actually looks like  parrot head). I denied myself the chance to climb the monolith (ew, loser) because it started to rain and I was afraid that I might slip off the cliff, so I drew it instead.

The second one was drawn from the campsite. That right there is the monolith and the peak itself. Climbing up the peak was so tiring because the mountain slope was too steep. It’s an unfinished sketch because my friends were rushing me to finish already because they needed to climb up the monolith already. 

The experience was awesome, too awesome, we’re already planning our next hike—Mt. Pulag!!!!


DAGITAB x Starry Night 

A long overdue (fan-made) movie poster painting of one of this year’s entry in Cinemalaya 2014 - Year 10,DAGITAB - Sparks directed by Giancarlo Abrahan, starring Eula Valdes and Nonie Buencamino. 

"…it’s not about letting go or moving on, because they never really leave. They leave a void, and you carry that void with you, always. It’s a matter of growing up, you don’t move on, you just become a bigger person until that void doesn’t feel as big."

The movie’s 10/10  I hope I get the chance to watch it once more.
 


"Every shoe has its own story."

A fan-made movie poster of one of this year’s New Breed Full-length films in Cinemalaya X, Maruquina; a film by Milo Sogueco, starring Mylene Dizon as Imelda.

This entry is one of my favorites alongside with Dagitab. It’s nostalgic, it’s cliche-free and it really just hits the spot. 

Kudos to the director!


Congrats!Ang galing niyo po :)




D’aawww thanks, miss! :^)

Hello guys! It’s been a while since I’ve said something here. 

As y’all know, last week was Cinemalaya’s 10th anniversary in hosting a prestigious indie film festival here in the Philippines. And as they celebrate it, comes a whole new line of full-length new breed films, and director’s showcase films as well as short features. 

The 1st poster attached along with this blogpost is one of the short films that belongs to a cluster of short films (Shorts A), Asan Si Lolo Mê? , a film directed by a UP graduate, Sari Estrada. I made this poster a while back while she was still doing her thesis in UP, and was surprised that it was one of the finalists for this year’s Cinemalaya; and finally, yesterday, it won the best short film.

I was lucky enough to have made two paintings/posters for two short films that were finalists for Cinemalaya X. One was entitled Mga Ligaw Na Paruparo, directed by J.E. Tiglao.(2nd poster).

Both were really really awesome films so props to the directors.

To have these two works hanged along the Cinemalaya poster gallery was already too much to handle. I was really freaking out to see these two beside each other so I took a “selfie”

And yesterday, a news came to me saying that one of these two made it to the top 3 best posters for this year’s Cinemalaya X, my poster for Sari’s film, Asan Si Lolo Mê?

I. WAS. FREAKING. OUT.

AND. I. STILL. AM. AT. THIS. VERY. MOMENT. 

because it actually happened. My poster, a finalist and one of the top 3 best posters for Cinemalaya. I was too basic to handle the spaz. HAHAHA! I went rushing to my mom, ugly crying, telling her the news that I surprisingly made it as a finalist. Asintado got the prize for the best poster, but it didn’t matter because seeing my posters hanging on the walls of CCP is already something, and having one as a finalist is already gold for me. 

As i’ve tweeted yesterday, it’s a milestone in my freelance painting hobb. And I would like to give my thanks to the directors for trusting me with their movie posters. Thank you so much, you guys. God bless your beautiful, colorful, and cinematic souls. 

Cheers!

"OKAY?"

A long overdue painting of The Fault in Our Stars

I suggest you listen to All I Want by Kodaline or All of The Stars by Ed Sheeran while looking at the painting. 

I believe y’all know what’s next after “OKAY?”.


progress painting: OKAY?
