Laputan Robot tattoo on my first skin ever @tarugs . Quite ambitious for my first work on a real human skin but I think I pulled it off. Worried at first but so satisfied with the lines. Next time we meet, shading and background lines. Thanks for the coaching @tarugs #art #tattoo #ink #laputa #robot #miyazaki #skin #illustration (at Cruz Residence / Big Eye Space Rentals)
Finally got to wear my Kamakura Jika Tabi shoes! Very comfortable walking like a ninja. Thanks to Kawaii in Manila and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu PH for the awesome gift! www.japonista-sole.com #tabi #japonista #ninja #shoes #kicks
Heroes are not born, they are grown and nurtured. “Before They Became Heroes” is my National Heroes Day piece for today’s AngI.n.K. Corner in the Manila Bulletin (August 31, 2013 page E-2). i wanted to show the famous heroes we come to know now were once children just like anyone else. And because of wonderful role models and being raised with good moral integrity, they rose to the occassion and became heroes. Are we raising our children today to be the heroes of the future?
Can you guess who these kids are?
Top: Ninoy Aquino as a kid loved frolicking in their family garden. He loved eating dried catfish and no one could put up with his non stop talkativeness.
Left: Andres Bonifacio as a kid sold paper fans and canes to raise money for the education of his siblings. He loved the theater arts.
Right: Emilio Jacinto as a kid was usually teased for his very humble clothing. He would use the hem of his mother’s skirt for his belt, and old rags for his shoestrings.
Below: Jose Rizal has perhaps the most well documented childhood. He was very good in drawing, so much that he can draw a passing bird without lifting his pencil from the paper.
