Creator of "Marianing"

Doing these sketches aren’t just my means of killing time. It’s good. I continue stimulating my imagination, creating personalities and characters from my pencil and ink. With every sketch I finish is just another way of saying to myself that I’m one step on expanding my mindscape. And I know that this can go on forever.

"Marianing Comics"Upon Opening the Marianing comic, you’ll see the symbol of the “Snake Witness" on the first page. This is to Remind the audiences that once you flip to another, you are no longer in your "real world". You are detached from your reality and now you are entering the universe of the "Snake Witness". -Snake Witness-The Snake Witness is a brotherhood of the sons of the celestial serpent “Time”. These are their stories of what they’ve seen throughout eons and eons and they start it all out by telling the life of a young man who joined the Cape Society to help mankind, Marianing.

And So, The process video on my Ink Painting, “Scumbag Hyena”. :)

A series of Ink Paintings I did months ago.

From top to bottom

1.  Portrait of a Tiger

2. Growling Waves

3. Scumbag Hyena

I had fun experimenting with my Chinese ink again. Last time I painted with this was when I was still working with Marianing short-film Backgrounds. Having nothing to do during the vacation of last July, I purchased a couple of brushes and recorded myself painting one of the piece (Scumbag Hyena). I had fun over all and I’m considering doing it again when I get an extra time. 

Here’s a link of the video:

Part 1 of the Marianing Comics Update. 

I don’t know guys, you might wonder why I look, sound and feel like a goofy narrator. It all seems like I’m not serious at all. Forgive me, I’m always like this. I’m trying my best anyways. *goofy laugh*

Anyway, forgive me and enjoy the update :)

FLASH BACK THOUGHTS 2012-2013 ( Doors Theory )

So recently  2012 and 2013 has been a crazy enlightening ride for me. Almost the same feeling as Riding a roller coaster with a naked prostitute beside you and Barney the dinosaur operating the damn thing. I’m totally different now from who I was back then. But the only difference now is I am able to speak my mind more now and express what I really feel. One can hate how I transformed but personally I love it. I can’t blame them anyway. Sa’ll good. I made decisions that a lot of my group of my friends back then hated me and it seems they can’t talk and look at me the same way again. But I’m just thankful that Brotha Jesus gave me the gift to understand their thoughts about me. 
My beastly transformation has been another door opener for me. Just like flipping through another interesting chapter. My brother taught me once his original theory of “THE DOORS”. It’s simple, we are all just walking in a hallway full of doors and one way or another, you’ll have to open every door to reach the last one. So you know, It’s just basic, open every damn door so you learn a lot of stuff and realize things, quit being hypocrites, understand more about the world around, hustle more, “Dates” are legal prostitution and work hard to be on top. So basically, this journal is a first round rap up of my thoughts about the past two years. I’ll be writing anothe later. Thanks.
