Fashion Illustration 5.0

Pardon for the second strokes as my pen is giving up on me.

This is a break from the flowy dresses that I’ve previously sketched as it embraces a woman’s curves in all the right places.

I’m thinking of jersey material in two to three tones.

Basketball – Topic for Week#30: UAAP / School Pride


Life is a game of basketball
It makes you play in offense and defense
You win everything or nothing at all
When situations call for common sense

Enough with the metaphorical theme
And live reality in quick reset
The cheers you are rooting for the dream team
Some grand expectations that should be met

The goal is to forfeit the five-peat drive
A battle between eagles and tigers
And never fall prey to take plunge and dive
A big and loud roar from all the members

Whichever team emerges as champions
Salute for rising over the legions

I’m Falling -Topic for Week#29: Autumn / Fall

Like the leaves of the autumn season fall
I am trying to search for some meaning
As I stare deep into your naked soul
I’ll be able to see through this feeling

By confessing my love with only you
Are you going to be there to catch me?
You must know that what I do feel is true
I guess loving you isn’t that easy

When the last leaf fades in the horizon
Extinguishing all effort and all hope
Accuse me then for a crime of treason
Cutting positivity in this rope
With the green color of hope that’s waiting
Seasons change, so do love that is freeing

Let Us Be One – Topic for Week#28: Peace-War

We are unique in our own little ways
Accept the fact that we are all diff’rent
Here’s to tranquility that lasts and stays
Coarse disparity has long been ancient

But in the track of everyday events
That initiate some misunderstanding
An impression that each of us laments
Bridge the gap: race, belief notwithstanding

Dig deeper in your heart what you desire
Bullets and weapons of mass destruction
Issues tackled in shadowing satire
A grain of salt in hope of creation

In this era, now is the time to heal
Wake up! Let us be one! It’s something real

► John Lennon – Imagine; Happy Christmas (War is Over)

Boredom Kills / Kill Boredom – Topic for Week#27: Boredom

Boredom sparks the curiosity in me
The things and places in books that I read
In all mountains and rivers that I see
It fuels my mind, something that I need

Sometimes I would let the time pass me by
My mind takes me to a far-away land
Dreams and thoughts that reach the bright blue sky
They become realities that are grand

I’d sit on a bench and wait at nothing
How am I going to make it happen?
I better start now and create something
Let lifeless ideas do awaken

A thief that robs my creativity
Something that stops my productivity

All Time Favorites – Topic for Week#26: Books / What is your favorite book?

My favorite tale

Of a damsel in distress

Waiting for her prince


Dungeons and dragons

Good triumphs over evil

Fairy tales we know


The Twilight Saga

Tells of a forbidden love

But it conquers all


Or The Little Prince

The eye cannot see what is

essential to us


Fifty Shades of Grey

In a world of lust and love

I have yet to read


Or Marley’s story

A recount of the author’s

moments with the dog


Of psalms and praises

A wide collection of words

My inspiration


Whatever story

As long as we can relate

Speaks straight to the heart

Everyday Heroes – Topic for Week#25: (Who is Your Hero?)

I’ve quite a number of super heroes

Listen and I will tell you one by one

I look up to math and all its bureaus

Numbers and anything under the sun

I do admire the prolific artist

Who creates words and songs, it is music

A beautiful soundtrack on my playlist

A love for anything futuristic

Or the author who writes sci-fi stories

and relationships and sweet baby love

Or the designer who sews cute doilies

Sketches and draws illustrations in mauve

The good samaritans we encounter

Unsung heroes we always remember

It’s the Journey – Topic for Week#24: (Journey / Travel / Trip)

I want to travel and go some places
Establish friendship and collect mem’ries
Learn a lot of things and meet new faces
A union living in peace for countries

I am at the intersection of life
A crossroad of decisions and notions
I wish for something without grief and strife
A voyage full of happy explosions
They say that it’s not the destination
But the journey of a life that’s well-lived
It’s a never-ending exploration
Hatred and animosity are sievedI know that it’s not a hard thing to do
It should just start somewhere from me to you

Fashion Illustration 4.0

Here’s my version of the kimono.

A contemporary take on the Japanese clothing.

The highlight of the garment is the obi tied in a sophisticated bow at the back.

Magtulungan Tayo – Topic for Week#23: (Bayanihan)

Ang lahat ay susuungin natin
Kahit anong unos ang dumating
Ang magkaisa sa adhikain
Ito ang nais kong iparating

Ang kawang-gawa para sa bayan
Nagdudulot ng tuwa at saya
Sa kahit anong pamamaraan
Ang pagbibigay tulong sa iba

Ang tanging nais ay maging buo
Ano man’g kulay, ano man’g lahi
At ang pakikipagkapwa-tao
Bayanihang walang pinipili

Nag-iisa lang ang ating mundo
Magsimula sa’kin, sa’yo, tayo
