#41 Marry Me McQueen

Rumor has it that THE MCQUEEN SPRING2010 SHOE will NEVER BE PRODUCED! The show pieces will just be up for auction.  Whaaat?!?! NoOoOoOo! 

shoes CAN inspire an entire outfit

No seriously. Mr McQueen.  Marry me and I shall be the best husband or wife or both to you.  I wouldn’t mind dedicating hours and hours reorganizing all your past work or participating in your terrarium fashion show as a one legged horse.

Marry me or I shall run off to a Frenchie (Nicholas Ghesquiere) and we shall make gorgeous mixed-race babies by the River Seine.

I know it looks like a claw. but i love it.


#37 Have A Dream. Make It Real.

Life is short.  Have a dream. Make it real.  Don’t tell me you don’t have a dream. Everybody has one.  I have heard a lot of friends tell me how lucky I am to have a certain “talent” and a dream.  They tell me that as “normal” people who can’t draw, sing, or act, it’s very hard for them to even think of something to aspire for.  “I don’t know what to do with my life” is how they put it.

Right after highschool that was the same question that bothered me.  I ended up taking a course that I was clueless about although I don’t regret taking it.  I was already in junior year when I really told myself that I wanted to be an artist, an illustrator and a fashion designer.  But here’s the big realization:  There really isn’t a lot of difference whether you’ve set yourself a goal or not.  Some people set goals and never attain it.  Many visions remain just as it is.  What some of my friends don’t realize is, as “boring” and “meaningless” they feel their lives are, it is in much ways better than mine, or someone else’s.  God knows how much I envy my friends and their immature boyfriends, their psycho girlfriends, their homophobic dads, etc etc etc…

I have a dream.  Im working on it.  For now my sketches make them real.  Soon it will be further realized… it’s just a matter of time… just like everyone else’s dreams.

This is a snapshot of my dream…

* Today’s sketch is an illustration of Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2010 collection. His designs are not as glamorous as Balmain or Dior but they always manage to influence the next big trend.  Someday I’ll be doing that, but for now a feature illustration in Vogue will do. 🙂

#30 Falling in Love Again

I wonder how many people around the world MISS THAT FEELING right about now.  When you love each other so much every little thing seems to excite you.  You can’t wait to tell your friends everytime something barely interesting happens.  People who believe they are already “mature” will say it is silly to hold on to these things as this is not what love is.  But why does “love” seem to always start with such?

#29 The Aftermath

There is a question that I must have asked one too many times.

you wake up...

It is made up of four words that convey curiosity and stupidity. 

You realize you're naked..

It is a phrase that nearly encapsulates most of my college life.

Feeling funny



You regret some...

#27 Nostalgia & Thighs

Statement Shirt by you.

I'm Addicted to Thigh Muscle Pain

One time I told my friend that I missed those pain in the thighs that you get during a really long and hard “pounding” or “riding” session.  She suggested that I go surfing since it gives her the same feeling.  I don’t believe her.

90's music is love by you.

a couple of songs

I miss Hanson too.  Mmmbop is the happiest happy song I know.  Followed by Tubthumping by Chumbawamba.  Everyone is on the 80’s now.  The 90’s is SO the new 80’s.


#23 Crime of Passion

Bleeding Love by you.

Bleeding Love

In the United States civil courts, a crime of passion is referred to as temporary insanity.

Isn’t this quite an interesting Get-Out-of-Jail Card?

Crime of Passion by you.

That's What Love Can Do

#018 Love is NOT an Emotion

        Back in college, me and my friends refused to accept the words of Morgan Scott Peck, particularly those on LOVE.  We were young and yearning to be “in-love”, to feel all tingly and weak-on-the-knees, to feel butterflies in our stomach and then grab a net to catch some more in the meadow where they fly low!  When we read his words, our grand ideas of love were crumpled up and thrown in the basket.  NOOOOO! Love IS an emotion! Love IS a feeling!

Falling or Flying? by you.

Are we falling or flying?

          Four years later me and my friends know better.  We’re still working on it but we know now how right he is.  Now that we’ve all stumbled upon conflicts and issues and “hard feelings”, it’s no longer just about attraction and the heydays anymore, persistence, understanding, patience, and many a virtue have become essential for the relationship to survive, or thrive and grow. 

Love is not a fleeting emotion by you.

Love IS

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”

M. Scott Peck
