Hi there! Just wanna inform you guys that I’m on a hiatus right now, forcibly. Last month (July), locally named Typhoon Glenda (internationally known as Ramassun) ravaged our lands and destroyed houses, crops, animals, roads, and one of the things I can’t live without: electricity. I always wondered how it would feel like to live in the TV show Revolution, and now I live in it, and I don’t want it to happen again. It’s terrible, a life without electricity, I realized, is like living in the medieval times. Brownout? Yeah, I can handle that, but weeks of it? Kill me already. It was informed to us that the electricity in my town might come back in November or December because the whole Region (like a State in the US) is in need of a general fix and it might take long for them to reach us, all the electric posts are down and it will require a lot of manpower to put them back again. I totally understand this but I can’t imagine a day without opening Photoshop. So, sadly, there won’t be any artworks for me to post. It might take a long time before I post another one. But fear not, I’m totally inspired despite these “dark” times. I have lots of ideas that I can’t wait to design, I’ve been keeping notes, and the first thing I would do when the lights come back is give them life.
Right now, my only source of entertainment and the thing that keeps me sane are books because it’s one of the things that doesn’t require power to work. I started this personal project I dubbed as “The Book Run,” because it’s a book-reading marathon. My goal is to always read a book every single day and not miss a day without reading one. I want to create artworks for almost every single book I read and you’ll see them soon. Okay, maybe next year.
During the storm, I was tucked on the corner of the room with my phone in my hand reading Guardian by Alex London, my “Book Run” started there. Right now (8/4/14), I’m currently reading Pawn by Aimeé Carter. My only wish is that I don’t run out of books to read before the lights come back. Wish me luck!
P.S.: If you ASK or message me, I’m afraid I won’t read it as soon as possible, due to my current situation. But if I do, I’ll reply as soon as I can.

-It’s not all the time that I like a pop-rock album; I’m an EDM and House music kind of guy. But I really really love this album. I considered it my favorite pop-punk/pop-rock album, next to All Time Low’s Don’t Panic album. I really love their sound, the lyrics and their voices. I like that they all get to sing. The songs are really catchy and sure to take you out of your seat and send you some good vibes. This album is legendary. I’ve been playing this all week!

-One of my favorite books ever! One of the most unforgettable and chilling twists I’ve ever read. The reason behind all of it was genius! I love the writing, too, it was beautiful.
Two of legendary horror film figures in their own shows! How awesome is that?! Who’s your favorite?
Yay! My agents are complete! #SkyeWard #DontArgue
These are the earlier versions of my Dualed cover. What I would always do is rest my eyes for a few hours and look at it again with fresh eyes and I would always find that something’s wrong and I would have to change it again and I usually repeat this cycle until I decided that it’s enough. I made five versions, decided there’s something wrong about them, and changed them again until I finally decided a better version (the solo version).

-I started this at night and finished it at 12 in the morning, the edited it for the last time at 8 in the night. Mostly, it’s the experimenting and coloring that took all my hours. In the cover is an eye and West’s assignment number encoded on the pupil. Assignment numbers also spread across the whole cover. I know it said “black spiral of tiny numbers” in the book but I don’t think the number would be seen against the pupil’s color so I made it white with a dramatic blue glow. There’s also the Alts and behind them is a silhouette of a DNA strand symbolizing the genetic engineering or creation of Alts and also Level 3. I also added flares just because I love them (shhh… this is a secret but flares also make empty spaces look unbelievably awesome. heehee hee!). I hope you like my spin to the Dualed book cover. *This is fan-made.
