Haruki Carlson has never been offered a limelight before, so to celebrate this milestone, I used her to thank all who have supported me with this endeavor. The only skit I could think of her to be exposed is to use her as the exaggerated, eye twinkling, bewitching, diamond eyes of fascination. This is the perfect situation for her, I tell you.
But then again, as I was painting, I realized it took me for more than 4 years to have finally decided on the four characters that will play the role for my upcoming book project. I know this is such a huge dream, but you know, I’m still learning. I feel like a moron right now.
The next thing I knew, I was doing some extra mile marketing. Never have I ever thought about making this blog as my peanut butter and jelly in the morning. I’m not a celebrity, or I don’t have any assets that I could be proud of like men with huge boulders of muscles which they can show the world and gain instant followers. I don’t sell sex. But if I did, I would not also think someone would buy it. I’m not saying I’m an ugly piece of crap that’s just not my thing. So much fucks in this world right now. I’m begging them to stop.
Let me take you back to where I thought I could make less of what I already started.
I began to operate my then sole owned Facebook page with the purpose of collecting my friends, workmates, acquaintances and my family’s caricatures, the cartoon versions of themselves. At first my goal was to reach 100 viewers or more commonly famous as Facebook like. For over a year, I realized I was not doing well with my craft that nobody even cared to offer a single click with it. It’s actually not that big of a deal right? But for me, I took it as a challenge. So I never stopped creating things that satisfies my soul. If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you don’t have any reason where you cannot improve. In my case, I continued to draw and create artworks even if nobody would even care.
For over those years, I finally realized where I am comfortable with. It’s as simple as accepting who you are, with that, I naturally discovered my own style. Not being influenced by the streaming art style that you will see else where. If people know who you really are, they will then accept it for what it is eventually. No, I am not talking about 500likes, I am talking about you being incorporated to something that you are good at. In case that’s sketching and drawing.
I honestly don’t know where this will lead me.
Tomorrow, September 15, 2016, I will be attending my first Korean Film Festival the Free Admission edition at SM Lanang Premier, Davao…wait, I also feel awkward telling or writing events in here. Anyway, I will be there tomorrow at 6PM and will try to see what I can do to recuperate this blog if that’s what others think this is.
