If you’ve noticed that my post and page titles are now customized, using my very own 1-year-old handwriting, then good for you! Because you’ve noticed it! Hehe. I created a custom font for this blog inspired by my handwritten logo. My handwriting looks terrible because I’m using a mouse with my right hand, and I’m left-handed. Continue reading
I was inspired to make a new business card design after reading Mica’s article about the importance of business cards. I admit it was not that good, but I think it was better than my old business card. This design was inspired by my very own ugly blog header. I know that it sucks but please don’t say it twice coz I might get hurt. Hehe. I did all my best, but still, I’m no good in Photoshop. If you want to criticize my design, just leave a comment below.

If you’re keen enough to notice that my subscribers dramatically increased from 300 to 500 (498 to be exact, as of writing this post), then you’ll be very curious of HOW did my RSS readers rapidly augmented in a short span of time. For just one week, I have earned more or less 200 subscribers in this crappy blog. Continue reading
I missed the days when I can scribble with my brush, mix colors from different oil paint tubes, and having so much fun unleashing my artistic skills (nyahehe…). But now I have no time to waste for this oil-painting-on-canvass-hobby, because I spend too much time catching radiation of electromagnetic waves generated by a computer monitor. I wish I can warp myself back to the old times, where I can play with my good old dog “TJ”, feed my good old Goldfish, “Goldy”, and ahmmm… that’s all, I just missed the good old days.
Let’s go back to painting. Painting. Painting. Painting. Oh my, I don’t know what to say, but painting. All I can remember is that it was inspired by Melbourne plastic surgeon. Just observe the painting, and see for yourself why it was inspired by such. I think, my painting skills are deteriorating as days pass by. I can’t even imagine myself holding a paint brush, holding it with my left hand (yes, I’m left handed), and thinking of something to paint. Someone stole my painting skills, and I don’t know who, who… whoo.. is he? or she? or it? hehe.. , I can’t even make a good header for this blog. I just suck on almost everything. I suck on blogging, I suck on SEO, I suck on drawing, I suck on programming, I suck on web designing, I just simply suck. I don’t know if my brain is still present inside my skull. How can I regain my skills, how? I don’t know how. I don’t even know who the hell am I? I don’t know my name! and, I don’t know why am I writing this stupid post in my blog. What happened to me? I don’t know what, and I don’t know why, and I don’t know almost everything, I don’t even understand what I am writing right now. I just don’t know. All I can remember is I made that painting, and I can’t imagine myself how did I paint it, or how I came out with it, or ambot? hehe… Waaaah! I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know. I don’t know what to say. I just really don’t know.
I have another design request, and I have finished it right away. My 38th T-shirt design, 2nd T-shirt Design for Ateneo de Davao University. For 1 hour and 46 minutes I have conceptualized at the same time made a layout and final design of NS & Math T-shirt. This is the preview of the T-shirt Design.
I really can’t figure out how to render a design in a light green background, (I usually create T-shirt designs in black, white, and other neutral color backgrounds) that’s why I tried several images and vector drawings to match up with the background color. I have tried to collage some science and math related images, (microscopes, test tubes, rulers, pen) but it doesn’t look good. I also did simple drawing of atoms, microscope, DNAs and other figures that is science-related, but I didn’t like the output. That’s why I scribbled my brush in random strokes to see what are the results of another chamba-chamba design (just like my AELEXS Front T-shirt Design that I accidentally distorted and forgot how I did it, haha!). That’s it! I made another design that doesn’t look very odd and it doesn’t suck so much (But still sucks for expert designer). For professional graphic artist and designers, I know this one will be graded 1 from the scale of 1 to 10, setting 10 as the highest rate. I’m not as good and as pro as other graphic designers. I’m just a newbie graphic artist, so please, don’t laugh at my work. I did my best, and that’s all I can do for now. I know there are so many Photoshop Wizards out there that will rate my work as poor and mediocre, just leave a comment if you want to criticize my work.

Whew! At last! I have finished the design request of Daniel Unno H. Hiquiana, a TABS member of Ateneo de Davao University. Thank you so much for your patience. I’ve been thinking for this design for so long of how to generate it, implement it, and construct it in Photoshop. My idle time in making this design is far more greater than creating this in Photoshop. But, after wasting a billion milliseconds of thinking, hehe.. I’ve come up to a great design, for me, and for one of my critics, Winston Almendras. He said that the design was incredibly awesome! It was such a complement for me, to make more T-shirt designs. I hope TABS will like this one.
This is my 37th T-shirt design, I think, from my first T-shirt Design, the 2003 DOST – Scholars’ Association T-shirt. Every design for me is such an achievement to be cherished! Naks naman! hehehe.. This TABS T-shirt design, is simple but elegant, it shows an abstract-like, (but not so abstact) figures of biology, like the DNA, Benzene Ring, and the Atom. The font used in this design was Space Age font, thanks to the creator of this font, whoever you are, because it really fits my conceptualized design. I was looking for a font, that is compatible with the bio images that I created, and I finally found one, the Space Age Font! YihEee! ^_~ More designs coming soon! ^_^
For a FREE T-shirt design, or design consultation, just e-mail me at [email protected]. or leave a message on my CBOX. I’ll be very happy to make one for you, or help you surmise a graphic design that you want, just be patient. (kasi sinisingit ko lang while working, hehe)
Teka, pahabol, special thanks to Ituloy Angsulong! For its continues movement to define the importance of SEO in the World Wide Web, and of course, in the Internet Market of the Philippines. For PHP, for a very simple, yet powerful programming language, to AJAX for all of the very awesome AJAX powered apps, like gmail, yahoomail beta, google maps, and all google’s API, it was pretty fascinating and astounding! Thanks to Ruby on Rails, for a web development that doesn’t hurt, and most of all, thanks to Tim Berners Lee, and to all the geeks out there, in making this impossible World Wide Web, come true!

This T-shirt design is a granted request of Mark Aethen Agana. The Honors’ Society T-shirt of the Notre Dame of Marbel University. I just want to post it here, so I’ll have an archive of my newly released T-shirt designs. I’m also planning to post my past designs, but I think I’ll post it in my Portfolio Website, that is still underconstruction (in my mind). I really don’t have time to make another one, but I’m planning to make a portfolio site with blog, and another site for graphic tutorials. Hehehe.. dami, I really do hope na magagawa ko lahat yan isa isa. Oh my, I should post more english than vernacular, so that my google adsense can show advertisements, because it will not show more links when I post in vernacular. I should mention some famous search topics like PHP, ituloy angsulong, Ruby on Rails, Photoshop, Corel DRAW, COBOL, Programming, etc. Basta common tags, at common search topics pwede na. Okey mag mention pa ako, ahmmm… PHP Libraries, CMS, Content Management System, Science, History, Mathematics, English, Coldfusion, Dreamweaver, Flash MX, Swish Max, Studio 8, Actionscript 2.0, Apache Server, Apache, TomCat, Java, Java Beans, J2EE, at wala na. I’m really sorry for this nonsense post of mine, just wanna post something to help my google adsense display ads, hehehehe…
This Honors’ Society design is purely from my creative mind, it’s not plagiarized from some sort of graphic design from other websites or other online resources. It was created by me and only me. The white version of the design is just an inverted design of my original black design. I created the black shirt design first before the white one. Then I inverted it, and saved it as another file. After it, I just filled a blue color to the human head, because it turns yellow as I inverted the image color. I sketched some graph and equations in Corel X3, and imported the saved JPEG file to photoshop, added it as another layer, then merged all the layers after finalizing the design. That’s it! hehehe.. hay.. kapagod talaga mag english, pero kelangan, may $3.00 dollars na rin me sa google adsense, konting tiyaga nalang at $100.00 na yun.. kelan pa kaya? Maybe someday… Someday soon, soon someday… hehe.. ^_^ Ituloy Angsulong Singit ko lang to para may mabasa din na Ituloy, hehe.. mabuhay ang SEO sa Pilipinas! Whew! (Anong connect?)
I really love this painting that’s why I re-posted it here, in my blog. This was my painting, ahmm.. I think it’s about 4 years ago, when I was a 4th year high school student. I’m a noob oil on painter that time, until now, still a noob! wahhehe… I think I’ve improved a little bit, about 10 bytes of additional skills in oil painting. I have no time to paint on canvas nowadays because I’m in to IT, Computer Graphics, Flash Animation, Video Edition, Web Designing and Development, PHP coding, Programming, etc.
I miss does days that I can scribble with my brush, mix colors from different oil paint tubes, and having so much fun in unleashing my artistic skills (nyahehe). But know I have no time to waste for painting because I spend so much time on my job, as a Web Developer and a Project Research Specialist (naks naman! hehe) I love painting, but there’s one thing that I really hate of it, I can’t undo! I really have a hard time in tapping my bad, nasty and unwanted brush strokes. One mistake, and my painting will get too dirty and not pleasing to the eye, unlike Photoshop, you can just move back, CTRL+Z, and your tidbit mistake suddenly vanishes. You can browse the steps you’ve made, and correct it one by one, every single move is recorded in this quite complicated, but incredible graphic software! I think, it’s not that complicated to the PSD veterans and experts, but for me, my brain squashes and prompts a 404 error while playing around with Photoshop.
I don’t know how to end this post, all I can say is, Photoshop has a vast contribution in the improvement of Fine Arts and Graphic Design. It helps professional artists a lot in developing such masterpiece, improving it, and making it more and more,, ahmm.. I don’t know, hehe.. Next time ko nalang dugtungan, my head kasi is near to paranoia na in extracting this brain cracking english words! Hay… ^_~
La magawa kaya may ginawa nanaman akong walang kwentang abstract sa Corel X3 para may ma ipost nanaman sa walang kwentang blog ko.. hehehe
