After hanging out and talking comics with *scrotumnose
's friend Mihk Vergara (~juanquestions
), who writes for Project Runway Philippines, I ran across Katipunan to meet up with an old friend Dan (~sirom
) who, as it turns out, joined forces with Rhea Alarcon, Dang Sering, Berns De Leon, and Marielle Nadal to form Ideals Creatives, Inc.
Which IMO is way cooler than Voltron.
They're a non-profit design studio offering graphic design services for other non-profit organizations and advocacies. (I hope I worded that right...)
Me and Dan
Dang and Dan
Marielle and Berns posing with the porcelain kitty. (I forgot her name.)
They also designed these removable vinyl stickers that's seen around the office:
Trinkets found around the office:
Dan and his sisters. This is a prime example of my bad photography framing skills.
Doodles I got from Dang, Berns, and Marielle. thanks, guys! My apologies for all my relentless badgering while you guys were busy.
The whole Ideals Creatives Inc. crew.
Anyway, after that I still managed to run along with Dan to UPCFA and bumped into our figure drawing prof Cesar Hernando.
Sir Hernando and Dan.
Got this doodle from him:
And I also found Tracy Monsod
It's just like in her dA pics. Awesome fashion sense. 8)
Got this doodle from her:
I might have dragged her away from an important org meeting for this. She was very nice about the whole ordeal.
Sadly I wasn't able to catch ~kiksology
and it kinda rained hard so I had to bolt out of UPCFA. I then headed off to check out the hotel bundled with the flight I got, and to my surprise it was in the middle of a red light district in Makati. After spending a night, I bailed out of that place. One of the cards on the night stand even warned the hotel guests to beware of "unscrupulous" people posing as hotel attendants. I'd say that's a clear sign I was somewhere I wouldn't want to be in. 8|
Anyway, that's it for now. I still have a week to be human and do human stuff so I guess there's more pics and stories to come. Thanks to everyone for chatting and doodling for me! 8)
