Artist’s Note: Why did I not think of updating this part of my blog with stuff like this during the past 2-3 years?

On second thought, I think I know why now.

Also, this is the first time I posted under this category with art I made on a PC drawing tablet. So yeah, yay~

And of course, honest constructive feedback is highly encouraged and will be highly appreciated~ \(^o^)

Modern Artists Capture the Strength of St. Joseph

I hadn’t thought about the strangeness of Saint Joseph doing a move with his family to Egypt until you mentioned it! God certainly works in strange yet amazing ways, indeed… 😀

joy of nine9

St. Joseph was a worker, strong, capable but spiritual enough to see and hear messages from God. He was courageous enough act on those commands even though they went against all common sense.

His young betrothed pregnant yet a virgin?

A move to Egypt, the place of slavery in the minds of the Jews?

How many of us could obey such ludicrous messages?

Modern artists reject sappy images of St. Joseph, choosing to capture a strong, loving man but supported by divine strength.   He was a man married to a beautiful girl, yet he remained celibate even though celibacy was not a virtue to the Jewish people

Tobby’s Freestyle Rap Practice Compilation 4

I’m back with my longest freestyle rap practice compilation so far, with a big chunk of it being me trying to freestyle over a certain song by Bruno Mars…and I just realized that I had some little slip-ups with the chorus lyrics.

But eh, I don’t care. Send me your honest constructive feedback, anyway, yo.

Also, sending thanks to my sister for them shades~ \(^o^)

Oh, and as for the first two clips, they’re in Filipino. So yeah. 🙂

Cynical Romance – or Why Love Sucks

Not as cynical as it seems, alright~ 😀

From A Clogged Mind

You know you’ve said it. More times than you care to admit. Even in marriage. Hey, we all go through it. No one is immune. Those who say they haven’t are lying, delusional or scared to face it.

But that’s ok. The trick is to get through to the other side. Cynicism doesn’t have to cloud the happiness that true love gives in return.

Here’s a poem to ponder when love sucks and you just don’t want to believe it.

Cynical Romance

Moira said to me

And in no uncertain terms

That she loved me

I was taken aback

I never had love

I mean

Love was glitter

Unicorns and BS

Yeah it’s a cynic rant

That’s just how I feel

Telling her I felt

The same way was

A sucker move

She’d leave anyway

Like most do

It’s in their nature

For people to tell you

what they want

You…

Milestones, Turning Points, and Activity Updates – February 2018

I think this is quite a good time to say “The struggle is real.” orz

But hey, I also think I shouldn’t take not having posts this month as a big deal. Especially with me facing my emotional and spiritual issues (e.g. oversensitivity, fame-lust, self-loathing) more along with facing them IRL responsibilities. Thank God Almighty that my loved ones have been helping me there, indeed.

Still, I managed to write up some poems and lyrics for Tobbyworks. I can’t guarantee quicker processing, especially with how I am right now, though.

Also, I managed to write and submit a short story for a contest in my university. Along with that, I’ve been learning a lot of interesting stuff about literature and creative writing in English along with Japanese stuff through the struggles of homework and discussions. Special mention goes to my Non-Realist Fiction Writing Professor who’s like a nerdy doctor dad, along with my Japanese Language Professor who’s a real hilarious blast, too~

I also have a Spotify Premium subscription now, and I’d like to share my general faves playlist to y’all~ (Note: Also includes explicit content, so yeah, you’ve been warned~)

Ah, and I’d like to plug the Steam release of the Strange Men Series as well. Linking the Bundle Details here, yo~

Anyway, I can’t promise lots of updates here right now, so yeah, upcoming releases will be more like surprises as usual. Still, honest constructive feedback is highly encouraged and will be highly appreciated.
