To Trash Or Not To Trash

There is a saying that goes: One man’s art is another man’s trash. Okay, maybe there isn’t such saying, but you know what I mean.


For the past few weeks I’ve been reorganizing my possession and that’s when I rediscovered all my old artworks. These collection of drawings and collages are dated from about 8 years back, and most of them are quite ugly. So I asked myself, “Self, are these art? Or are these junk?”, and I couldn’t seem to come up with an answer.

Part of me wants to treasure them for memento’s sake, but the other part thinks that’s beyond ridiculous. Hence proceeds all the hemming and the hawing. At the end I’m deciding to trash them anyway, but I promise I will make myself take a complete documentation before I bid them adieu. Fair enough, yes?

And how about you when it comes to your possession? Are you a hopeless nostalgic who hoard everything? Or are you ruthless and practical and the dumpster is your bestfriend?

Remind me to vacuum them later.

If All The World

After so many full moons passed by and the sketchbook laid await in its dire state of idleness, I finally defeated evil and broke the curse. I finished a drawing!

You guys have no idea how exhilarated I am. I haven’t drawn anything in such a loooong time, I almost forgot how it feels to create those tiny ink strokes [It’s theurapeutic! Really!]. And I tried, trust me I tried. I started at least 6 drawings in the past 9 months, none of them succeeded. So this drawing right here, albeit a small step in my artistic history and despite all the flaws and mistakes I made – for me it’s already a victory in itself.

I can’t believe I forgot to post this one. Coraline!


Though I think the book itself was just okay [As in… “it’s good, it’s exciting, but it’s for kids” – type of okay. A Narnia type of okay], but so far the previews of the movie have been keeping my hope afloat.

Stop-motion has always amazed me and with the tag-line of Coraline being “the biggest hand-made movie”, how can I even resist? I hope Selick will avoid the curse of most adapted movies and make the story his own.

And don’t forget to check the website!

Tentacley Jewelry

Blame it on the recent Pirates of The Caribbean DVD marathon that we did, but boy do I want these! (Both from OctopusMe.)

octopus earrings

octopus ring

I think I’d like 2 rings, one on each hand.
I would name one of them Kraken, and the other one… Takoyaki 😀
It’s too bad I’m allergic to silver, now isn’t it?
