‘If the girl had been worth having she’d have waited for you?’ No, sir, the girl really worth having won’t wait for anybody.
Two days and Two nights of beach parties, beer showers, tequila shots and dancing like crazy with eye-candies.
Sunbaked 2013 was awesome. The crowd was great and I got to do something artsy by giving friends free henna tattoos.
I don’t know if you’re in to this kind of stuff but I gotta say Flunk just makes me feel sexy.

Doodling in the office because this day couldn’t get any more tedious.
Word to the wise, if you’re a child of art do NOT take an accounting-and-finance-related job. It dulls the creativity, I tell you.
It took me quite some time deciding whether I should post something about my Frida painting being on the Tumblr radar because I didn’t want to gloat but, heck, it’s not every day that my posts make it on the Tumblr radar so I’m breaking my rules and, for once, I’m gloating.
Yeah, The Frida Complex was on the radar and had it not been for wheresburger , I wouldn’t have known it made it there. (Thanks for the screen cap, madam.)
It’s only right to thank you guys for making this happen. And I would like to greet my new followers with warm, welcoming virtual hugs. :-)
overthebosphorus asked: hey do you sell any of your paintings as originals or even reprints? I'm really interested in "The Frida Complex"
Hi. I think it’s awesome that you’d pay for it but I really have a hard time letting go of my works… So, to answer your question, I haven’t really sold a painting…Well I did a few commissioned works before but that was different. I had to do what clients wanted so, in a way, those commissioned works aren’t very personal and they were easier to let go but other pieces like “The Frida Complex”, etc which are painted without incorporating ideas of the clients are too close to me that I find it so hard to let go of them. I get too attached and that’s probably why I’m still broke. Hahaha.
the-everythingcritic asked: You are incredibly amazing at drawing!! Can you please tell me what drawing materials do you use? I also really love art and hope i could draw as good as you! So glad I found your website!! :D
Thanks. I use student grade watercolors, oil paints and acrylics…basically just the ones that I can afford. Among the three, I have a particular fondness for watercolor as it is the most affordable and the easiest to use but oil is what I really want to master.
I guess the best piece of advice I can give you is just keep on painting. A cliche but it’s really effective in sharpening your skills. :D

A late upload of the Frida painting. Working on the effect was an interesting experience…there’d been days when I wanted to stop and throw it in the rest of the pile of WIPs what with all the juggling of job-related matters and busting my ass off on this but I’m so glad I kept painting. And just looking at it is the best reward for all the troubles.
The rose could use some more improvement but… yeah, you get the point.
Here’s a sneak peek of the Frida painting. With only a couple of days left to work on this, I could definitely use Frida’s prowess right now.
