I love the new Naruto Shippuden ending credits! Ichiraku Ramen ftw! :D…
Shinha Akatsuki No Yona by Nick-Ian
Shinha Akatsuki No Yona
I've already uploaded this in my Tumblr account here -… So I placed this here in my scrapbook.

It's cause somebody needs this artwork to be here in my DA account for easier access. 

This is the blue dragon of Akatsuki no Yona by the way. The name's Shinha - or was it Shinwa? 
Oyasumi Punpun by Nick-Ian
Oyasumi Punpun
Never have I encountered a manga that has spoken so much truth and so much life.

"Oyasumi Punpun" - in spite of surreal things that happen in this story, it's the most real manga I have ever read. Reminds me of Haruki Murakami's books. I'm taking it slow on the reading, don't wanna reach the end too quickly. It's the story of a boy's life by the way. But he's shown as a bird. It's one of many strange things in this manga.

Originally wanted to upload the scanned version of this drawing, but I like the photo more. It's because I'm in it. And the real world is in it too.


Oyasumi Punpun does not belong to me.
Trust And Betrayal Again by Nick-Ian
Trust And Betrayal Again
"Human feelings are capricious."

"The emotional distance between the darkest hate, and the deepest love is no more than the width of rice paper."

Rurouni Kenshin: Trust and Betrayal. The quotes, they really get to you. Hard. I'm watching this masterpiece again. After all these years.


Watercolor and pens.

OMG. Final Fantasy VII remake. I. Need. A. PS4. :explosion: I cry!!!

Just returned from another summer trip! But it's different this time 'cause I spent it with a group. Travelling with company does have its plus sides (the most important of which is that I can save a lot on lodging). I don't know how I managed to pull off being with other people on that vacation - I guess it was just a lesson of tolerance.

I was with students doing their on the job training in companies at Cebu. Cebu, though industrialized and filled with buildings growing ever higher, is also famous for its natural wonders and pristine beaches, and with the help of a very good friend, he was a Jesuit brother and a true Cebuano, we were able to go on a boat tour around Mactan - an area known for white sand islands and underwater sanctuaries that are perfect for snorkeling and diving.

The best thing about that trip to Mactan is that I finally figured out how to use a damn snorkel! (Thanks bro!) And I've become confident floating on deep water now and I can somehow maneuver along the surface, well, as long as I have a life jacket. I actually don't know how to swim (and I really should learn it!). 

It was my first time seeing a real underwater coral reef scenario. Prior to this, I only saw them in nature shows or in books. There's such a difference seeing the real thing. I don't know how many hours I floated on the surface just staring at the busy spectacle below me. The fish were fearless of humans. They even approach you expecting food. Guess they're so used to getting fed, it was a marine sanctuary after all. And we did feed them. We just put out scraps of bread, and they'd swarm you like the paparazzi. Haha! 

I did do some solo wandering in Cebu too. I visited far flung Oslob for the white sand bar in Sumilon Island and the majestic Tumalog Falls. I should've gone whale shark watching but I didn't know how to snorkel then. It was only during the Mactan trip that I learned it. And that happened the day after my Oslob trip. Isn't that funny? 

So yeah, pretty awesome trip. And as usual, I've posted all the sketches I made and also some paintings in one deviation - here: Cebu May 2015 by Nick-Ian :D
