My forgotten dreams are
like yellow butterflies,Vilda 
pastilles, wrappers of
assorted Belgian chocolates,
and summer trips with 
no photographs taken.
They float in my sepia
tone trance, flickering 
fireflies in my most undisturbed
solitude. My eagerness caught 
them, almost.

During the STORYLINES exhibit last July, many Ateneans signified interest in line art, particularly in doodle and comic art. Some even submitted their works for the exhibit. They are also asking if there will be venues for them to improve their craft, so the Ateneo Design and Arts Society now brings you KURIT: parallel workshops on Doodle Art and Independent Comic, and discussion on visual literacy, aesthetics and basic composition.

Modules for my Reading Remediation Class

Ateneo Pathways provide reading sessions for elementary schools and high schools that cannot afford the SRA program. Since SRA kits are expensive the group create their own reading modules. In our reading remediation class our teacher Ms. Julie del Valle asked us to create at least two modules. I picked two stories from the internet, which I believe are available for non profit purposes, and made an illustration out of them.

An Huring Kartero kan San Gabriel (play)

Allan's friend Jenn, who I first met during the screening of Amigo, asked me to do a poster for their upcoming play. The peg for the poster are the illustrations of the "Dean of Philippine Comics", Francisco Coching. Looking at the details of his drawings, I was damn overwhelmed. But I'm into details and fine lines, so I told my self why not give it a try. This time I used A3 glossy paper and Faber-Castell pointy pen.
