I just found the grimoire in a very interesting shop outside the walls of the Vatican, in Rome, Italy. Covered in real leather and filled with around 300 blank pages of handmade parchment paper, I am very excited to turn this into a work of art.

Some answers to some questions regarding my art My gratitude to all my 'watchers' as well as to all of you have given my works a 'favorite'. In the course of time, many of you have written me and asked some questions regarding my art and my life. I have answered all of them, but individually. Now I wish to share all these to the rest of you. 1.  What is your medium? Metallic gel pen on the black (reverse) side of illustration board The brand I use is Dong-A, a Korean brand that is available here in the Philippines. It is the only one with metallic colors, other brands have glitter pens. Unfortunately, there are only seven colors available

You have some really synchronistic art, very beautiful as well.

Thank you very much

Hi! matanong ko lang po about mythology; can we safely assume the entity "Diwata" is our version of celestial maidens/apsara?

Diwata is a term derived from the Hindu term Daeva or god. The term in both Filipino and Hindu context can be used for male or female gods. However, the feminization of the Diwata grew from the adopting of local female gods into nature spirits during the Spanish era. Example is the goddess Makiling became Maria Makiling. The concept of nature gods are now nature spirits, such as the European fairies, spites, pixies and nixes. Modern translations of Diwata have further enforced the feminine imagery.

he was talking to me, not you.

Happy Birthday.
