If my fear was a bird
she settles, nesting
waiting, penitent in her pursuit
of any excuse
to leave this life she’s made
over and over again
she coos, softly
inviting any reason to forget her home,
forget safety, identity
she presents herself as prey
but still, she remains.
the bird that personifies my fear
that fear would be a human girl.
she lies awake,
dreading these apathetic tantrums of routine
so she finds herself watching the turning of the earth,
a record player
a washing machine
and she knows her life turns in parallel.
She dreads it.
But my fear is not a bird,
Nor is the fear of the bird me.
Maybe it’s nothing,
but the product of a restless mind.
Drown Me In Your Bliss.
Sharing this artwork that I recently made for @drooogz for their band @mirage.ca . It was really fun to work with the idea and I'm glad they gave me a chance to be a part of them. Please like and follow and support @mirage.ca Thank you.
Planned to book a schedule at Stronghand shooting range last sunday but the thing about plans is, they can be changed 😝 Alda drove us to BGC instead to do a photowalk-slash-toy-photography. Didn't even think about how hot the day was and how much walk we'll do. Despite the sweat-soaked shirts and the difficulty of standing back up from kneeling down because we fat-asses can't control eating out, it feels like we spent the day and night pretty well. Ate, walked, talked, and laughed a lot. Man, we even availed 4D cinema to watch Slenderman. And boy were we entertained! Not by the movie but by how silly the idea of moving seats was feeling like a mini roller coaster, and the flashing of lights that blind you for a good three seconds. Thanks Alda, you drove to three different locations and I didn't even chip in on parking and gas 😝 This cheapass will return back the favor next time, I promise boi hahaha (*from left to right: first three pics are funko Dr. Strange taking the advantage of bokeh lights on High Street; Alda trying to win the free fries challenge at Potato Corner, apparently the promo was only valid at Makati and we were in Taguig 🤣)
It's been a long time since I last drank a good bottle of beer. So I bought six today and hopefully I can be more productive tonight and create something I can be proud of. One of the things I usually forget is to indulge on things that I really wanna do. I invest more on excuses like I do graphics for my job anyways, or I'm busy, or I'm tired. But then I remember those days when I was up till seven AM, tired and all, and I'll be up in three hours smiling because I enjoyed my night and it felt like I started my day right. Hopefully the crinkle cut fries would help me on conceptualizing for this night. Passion project, game on!
