Moving on is with the wallpaper. Ok, so I guess I'm back with anothre melancholic wall [or as self-proclaimed fans would put, "emo"], with heart broken or two. Its somewhat in a right timing for me, with how my life is now and everything. I don't enclose "emo" to just being sad though. That's a common misinterpretation. Emotions are vivid, real and true. And they can be just about anything, from being happy and all the way to be bored and lonely.

The wallpaper is based on the music video by Keane. I mostly used the smudge tool and mixed it with ecclectic vector graphics I drew as well as stock photos from DeviantArt. It was fun making it and I don't think I have to say much at this point. I guess I'll let the art, and the MUSIC VIDEO speak for themselves.


Quoting from the band: "We've been asked whether Somewhere Only We Know is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..."


Most people who consider my work emotional as something deep. Its nothing deep at all. Its reality. You don't need huge words or a big knowledge on vocabulary to know you've been cheated, you've been wronged, or you've been replaced. You also don't need that much to know how it is to forgive. Yes, to forgive and let go of whatever became of it.

Because I need to learn how to let go and move on [even if I haven't yet]. At the same time, let people in. Art has taught me how to risk, and with the many things to be left vulnerable, its the heart that is the hardest to lose, but I realize that without those you love, that's when you really have nothing left.

The fantasy is simple. Pleasure is good, and twice as much pleasure is better. And that pain is bad, and no pain is better. But the reality is different. The reality is that pain is there to tell us something, and there's only so much pleasure we can take without getting a stomach ache. And maybe that's okay. Maybe some fantasies are only supposed to live in our dreams. While some, if you believe enough, are meant to come true.

Dedicated to my friends who once were. Things changed and so did some people, and I forgive you for everything.

But most importantly, this wall is dedicated to my friends who still are [and it includes you who's reading this, thank you for actually taking time to read it]. No price can be placed on a good friend. It's priceless.


If you aren't satisfied with my rendition of the song, you can check out some of the greatest artist of DeviantArt and see how the song inspired them in making their own versions. Inspiration drives people.

    as what I expect from a Filipino, haha. ^^ this is now different from all your designs, a vertigo. and the text seem to be your trademark. when i looked at this, i didn't think it was RahXephon, until I saw the current sight of Ayato and Mishima over there at the lower right; meaning the childhood version is at the opposite. I personally like those "gingerbread men".

    however the petals and the bubbles don't look blended well in the background. you might want to render them more.

    Very interesting image... takes me some staring to see all the details in it. I find it somewhat abstract ^^ Very well done. I think it is very creative. Wonderful colour tones and saturation as well.
