www.bongredila.com is online

As you noticed I changed the color of my blog and the head as well. It is because of my Website.
There are still some minor adjustment that I have to tweak such as the missing captions and some additional images on "Gallery 1". And for some reason there's a bit of a script problem that when viewing at Safari the gallery images opens up in odd sizes.

But for now, please visit my online portfolio at www.bongredila.com. Thank you.

Background by the way is a sketch I made called "The Selfish Giant: The Discovery" (by Oscar Wilde), the sketch of course was inspired by one of my favorite cartoons when I was a kid. Check its IMBD -> here.

A Collection of Poems by Brandon Avery Clarke

I enjoy doing illustrations and artwork to accompany a poetry - working and illustrating poems by Brandon Avery Clarke is a pure bliss... and a pain in the cheek muscles I must say. His work is so brilliant that you'll realize the ache on your face is caused by you smiling from beginning to the end.

I started illustrating this project in the early part of September (I think). And all's well and dandy collaborating with the bright minded Mr. Clarke.

You should watch out and remember this gentleman's name. Just a word of advice.

Image below is when I worked on one of his poems called "O'Me O'My". I'm so much in love working at nights 'til dawn. The world is sleeping and peaceful, just me sipping hot coffee while listening to NPR podcast and perhaps Ennio Morricone. I always try to make sure I'm not that sleepy enough to dip my pen on my coffee cup instead of the inkwell.
