Man: The Destroyer

Man destroys earth

I’ve observed since I was young that each and everyone is a destroyer. I’m not insane or anything it’s just that I’ve seen people build and destroy things. A smoker perhaps doesn’t know that he’s destroying his lungs and killing himself and the people around him too. Loggers who cut trees and abuse our natural resources are destroyers and killers too. People kill animals for food. Factory dump their wastes on our rivers thus destroying them and making them uninhabitable. So what’s my point here?

The earth is dying and thanks to us. We’re all part of it. We don’t realize it but the sad truth is that you and I contribute to the earth’s demise. And who gets affected? Not the trees nor the rivers but we, the people. We’re killing the earth. Yesterday was Earth Day but there’s nothing we did to celebrate it. We just made it suffer more. And I think no one even remembered our planet’s holiday.

I’m No StarStruck Fan but I love Kris Bernal

Yeah, you’ve read the title right. I love Kris Bernal. My friend Robert told me he’s seen this pretty lady before she’s even joined StarStruck. Robert showed me photos of Kris from friendster and I was struck. She’s cute so I made a vector cartoon art of her face. I know I’m not gonna be able to meet her or talk to her. So what? I’ve got her photo. Well here she is in vector!

Kris Bernal

If you’re gonna download this photo, feel free to do so but please don’t modify it. I spent more than 3 hours making this so the artwork deserves some respect and credit. Thanks.

Back to where I came from

Just a few minutes from now, I’ll be leaving the office and making my way to the bus terminal. Yeah I’ll be having my 5 day vacation. I’ll be heading to Baguio and La Union for a time to relax and spend my time with my family and friends.

I miss my hometown. It’s been almost a year since I last visited our old house on the top  of the hill. I miss my old dirty and messy room. I miss my old PC. And yeah, it’s hard to admit, but I miss my family.  It’s holy week and well, on Saturday the beach will be filled with lots of people but I won’t be joining them. I’m sure the beaches will be dirty again. I’m just gonna stay at home and try to finish my newly acquired PSP game, Prince of Persia: Rival Swords. I have written a beginners review about it on the newly re-themed Stylemo. Check out the screenshots.
I also have other stuffs to finish too. Like the kavatars, yeah that’s what I call those avatars you can see on my recent post.

Maybe you noticed the new look of this blog

Is it your first time here? If not, I’m sure you’ve noticed the new cool look of my blog. yeah I changed the layout and added a custom header. I’ve been doing vectors lately and yeah, I made the whole header thing on Adobe Illustrator CS2. I’ve been vectorizing faces since last week and a lot of people, mostly my friends at Yahoo. They want a vectorized face and they’re like demanding it like it was so easy to do. Well it ain’t easy like you think. It’s not like a filter in Photoshop. It’s more complicated.

If you want a vectorized face just contact me and I’ll do it for you for free but don’t be so demanding coz it’s free already.

Here are samples. Enjoy the Scanner Darkly Effect brought to you by Stylemo. That’s me!
