merry xmas poo

This is what happened when I spent an afternoon in a coffee shop on a colonized tropical island listening to xmas songs that talk about snow, fireplace, and reindeer.

Still, I swear, like "Wu-Tang," JiMMyComix "is for the children."

punk sketch

well obviously this isn't a straight-edge kind of punk that I drew.
... there're so many different kinds of punks out there, just like there're so many different kinds of everything, and that's what makes the world worth living in in my opinion. I like punk because even "Be different" is redundant: Diversity shows when everyone is simply being their punkass self.

anyway, when you have a chance, go watch this punk-doc, "From the Back of the Room":

random bitz of rock n rolling in Manila

bye bye Manila, hell on earth, a place where I worked for less than a year as an underpaid oversea foreign worker (yes, be proud, Filipinos, consider this your payback time, for my motherland doesn't treat its Filipino workers that well, either, not at all). Granted, Manila isn't very pleasant. but there are definitely things I like here. for the most part, the friends I have been lucky enough to make. and then, those metal (with a bit of punk and even hippie spirits) shows in small, dark, sometimes smelly bars, where I have learned that those mean-looking, middle-fingah-waving people in black shirts not afraid to name death and destruction are actually living and feeling, neither of which an easy task here, in Manila, if you know what I mean...

anyway, so here's my final random shits of Manilan lock'n lolling. (and I do hope to come back for many more gigs in the future, as a visitor.)

oh yes, Manilan metalheads, of course you can use any image here in this blog in your zines for free but please if you are doing it at least mention my name and/or the link to the blog... I mean, come on, you always credit the bands and musicians featured in your zines, so why not give the guy who draws only black and white a lil' love, eh?


surprised to see my doodles in a local zine. nays, nays!

sketches from Boracay: featuring Oliviatopus and Sofia the Snail

1. The Adventurous Adventures of Tito Jimmy's Nose! - by Olivia the Amazing Octopus
apparently, my nose was running all the time :)

2. Birthday Card for Lola. - by Sofia, Olivia, and Jimmy
Basically the girls' little cousin Tomoki was skinny dipping in the ocean and so Sofia wanted to give him a naked license (ticket?). Olivia was being her amazing octopusious self.

 3. Butiki (domestic/house lizard)

4. Dogaroo (kangaroo dog, according to Tomoki) and Harry Otter

ma vie...



just learned that in Tagalog "lonely" and "sad" are the same word - malungkot.
(or, "lonely" and "sad" share the same meaning.)

then i understood why it's so hard to get some alone time here in manila.

well my Filipino nieces saw this and said "ang ganda."
I guess it translates to "what a beauty!" (in Steve Irwin voice). hm... I don't really know to which creature they were referring.

was at Maude's cafe in Gainesville, FL.

Longneck vs Big Mouth

This is for my bro Birdhan, who passed away this day last year, at age 33.
Birdhan, Longneck, LuBird and I have known each other since junior high. Birdhan, whose mouth was kinda big (and lips, thick ^_^), liked to fight with Longneck, and Lubird would always tease them. Hence this "Longneck vs. Big Mouth" piece, which imitates old-school Godzilla posters. There're some hidden details that bear meanings for us, and for those who know Birdhan, a.k.a. Owen. They - the meanings & the secrets - shall be preserved for those to whom they belong(ed). R.I.P. my Big Mouth bro. miss you.
