So, according to a promise I made five months ago (to myself mostly), I would begin posting original content everyday from my DeviantART gallery. Starting with the oldest.
Here’s one to start things off.
A plate for Art History back when I was still a Fine Arts - Advertising major. The art movement assigned to me was Surrealism. This was my understanding and interpretation of it.
I was also just beginning to get the hang of Adobe Photoshop.
Do you ever notice that when the church gets insulted (by Mideo, Celdran etc ) all hell is raised in the name of morality , but when a person from the church does something truly terrible like rape a child, the world is relatively quiet?
People get mad & righteous over couples taking crass pictures in graveyards but hardly care about raping priests.
Nasaan ang galit ng masang Pilipino? Nasaan ang mga hate page at death threats para sa taong ito?

“All efforts are being undertaken to abort the impeachment of Gutierrez because in effect it will be GMA (Arroyo) on trial,” Sen. Franklin Drilon said in an interview, referring to the former president, now a Pampanga lawmaker.
Betty: Did you have a nanny? I’ve never asked you that.

Betty: I don’t know. We’ve never talked about it.

Don: Jesus, Betts. It’s like politics, religion or sex.
Why talk about it?
Betty: Hmm. I see your point.
