I have a story to tell you. 17 years ago I taught myself how to use Photoshop. Unlike today, videos or websites that teach people how to use the program were hard to find. Youtube was not an option. It was tough to learn it on my own, but I managed to do it. I sat for hours making stuff for my blog/website. Changing layouts every 2-3 days. Figuring out HTML and CSS was a real headache but I never got tired of it. My offline people would ask why do you spend so much time in front of that computer. Do something else! At that time I had no idea but I really enjoyed it so I kept on doing what I was doing. Now it makes sense to me. I know why I did all that. I was following my path. If I did not spend hours trying to learn it, there is no way that I would be publishing my own book now. I wouldn’t know how to do it. I truly believe that there is a reason for everything. :) So now, I’m about to self-publish another coloring book. It never gets old. The best part is when I’m at the final stages and that is when I’m designing the cover. I love trying different themes, working out what looks good and what doesn’t. So enjoyable. :) So yeah, that’s my story. 😅 #selftaughtartist . . #kcdoodleart #drawing #doodle #doodleart #doodleartist #ink #inkdoodles #inkdrawing #inkdoodle #art #artistic #artist #artjournal #artjournaling #journal #journaling #lineart #visualart #illustrations #illustrator #zen #zendoodle #zenart #zenartist #zendoodles #zentangle #zentangleinspiredart #illustration

We got an AirBNB at the Gramercy Residences next to the mall. I forgot what floor we were on, but it was pretty high up there. Out on the balcony, there was an interesting view of the city. A thick blanket of fog covered up most of the buildings, except for the Rockwell area. During the holidays, these buildings sport some shiny gold trim, which can be seen from far away. Only Rockwell stood out from the fog, shining in all its glory, as if to show off its collective opulence like a beacon of hope in a dark sea of poverty. Thought it looked cool. #nerdwaffles #journal #drawing #draw #diary #travel #vacation #christmas2017 #creative #Philippines #pinoy #manila #rockwell #filipino #city #citylife #art #artistsoninstagram #grayscale #storyboard #story #storyart #daily #picoftheday

Finalized what I'm buying on 08/31 for the 9/1 @hobonichi1101 release. I already know what works and what doesn't in the past 3 years since I started this journey to finding the planner for me. This time I'm taking a leap by upgrading my journal to the Cousin however, just in case I chicken out last minute I'll get the Original. 😂 Looking forward to using @take_a_note_planner for my personal planning (because weekly views in vertical is essential to my system but I can't find a planner with grids that's also in A6). #planner #journal #hobonichi #hobonichitecho #cousin #original #takeanote #jetstream #accessories

Day 1065. I shed my predisposition for isolation and spent a much needed social evening hunkered in the bunker with my bestie, Jason, listening to The Commodores. - I'm fairly certain that the only thing that would have been more #bromantic is, if we shared a tray of brie and triscuits, by candlelight - which we, sadly......did not. Since I quit smoking, I'm pretty fu*kin' snacky. . . Jay's started undergoing chemo. He's lost a tonne a weight, but he remains in good spirits. The other night, I sent him a picture of my face ridiculously swollen from a wasp encounter whilst he was in the midst of a medical marijuana high. I looked like the product of a torrid love affair between Patrick Stewart and Mufasa the Lion. Evidently, the combination of his mental state and my photo nearly broke his brain....in a very good way. He told me that he hasn't laughed harder in several months and that made me very happy. I mean, he's done a lot for me, was there right from the moment my life went to shit. He's the reason I quite smoking. He barely ever drank, didn't smoke. He was a healthy guy, took care of himself, but his sudden Cancer diagnosis served as a brutal reminder of our mortality. It's a pretty shitty lesson, but not one to be ignored. . . Tonight, I had a sober Saturday evening with my best friend and despite of the countless opportunities to cry, we laughed...like we always do. I'm truly blessed to have him. . . #peteonrepeat #sober #sobriety #recovery #smokefree #life #mortality #laugh #cry #family #friendship #cancer #fuckcancer #brother #friend #love #blessed #album #vinyl #theresabrightside #smoking #healthy #diary #journal #photography #writer #writersofinstagram #iamthestorm #JAYISTHESTORM
