Not only for ourselves

It’s only a short video, but gives action steps on what we can do as individuals.

WE can all contribute towards helping save and restore our planet not only for ourselves, but for our children, grandchildren, the next and future generations!
Maikli lamang po itong video, pero nagbibigay ng ilang halimbawa kung papaano tayo makakatulong.

Kaya nating iligtas at panatilihin ang ating mundo, hindi lamang para sa ating sarili kungdi pati na rin sa ating mga anak, apo at susunod pang mga henerasyon!


A Tree & Shrubs at Chinatown

“A Tree and Shrubs at Chinatown” 21x21cm. A sketch in watercolor & ink.

I sketched them while waiting for the bus, then today I experimented with watercolor using Burnt Sienna, Sap Green and Yellow Ochre.

If you look closer, at the background is the palette I used to paint Rhythm by the Bonfire XD

I do feel that watercolor is perfect for me because I love its spontaneity, and the surprises it gives you if you just let it run its magic!

Rhythm by the Bonfire

Feeeeel the rhythm coooming down! 🎵
TITLE: “Rhythm by the Bonfire” 9x12in watercolour . FINISHED!

Early in August the annual Tenrikyo Picnic was held at Kapiolani Park. 


I was having a fun chat with my friend Yuki-chan, who’s also a creative (she designs nail art), about what I want to do in life.

Out of the blue I blurt out, 


“Did you say you wanna draw?” someone said behind me.

It’s Big Jay!


I said “Yeah!” and showed him my travel sketchbook. “You draw everyday?”

“Yup at the bus stop, while waiting for the bus!”

“Ok cool, I’m looking for someone to draw my album for me, do you wanna do that?”

I listened to his song, “Rhythm Going Down” and closed my eyes.

I saw people…some dancing, some just standing around a bonfire. At the beach.

There’s this one girl, who really gets into the groove.

At first I thought I wanted to just show that camaraderie.


Later on, I looked at it again and felt like something’s missing. It’s so flat.

So I added a backdrop of the sky, the moon and the ocean. I also wanted it to look like, the viewer can join in, too.



It’s not just the people, but also the ambience of the surroundings –

in Nature, one can also feel the rhythm.
