Illo Friday: Moon

i started blogging back in november of 2004 as a way of therapy. and looking back.. woah! it has been almost 3 years indeed and so much have changed in me! for my old readers.. you have seen me in my worst and best. thanks for sticking by through it all..

i know this is an old illo and i posted this before back when illustration friday was just a page where posts per week hardly reached a hundred, and i havent even heard of flickr yet. but soon as i saw this week's topic i felt the urge to go back and in going back and seeing, reading, my old posts.. it's like flying to the moon and back indeed..

this is for you old and new IF artists.. it was fun and will always be fun learning with you all..

yeah i havent posted during my exact blog anniversary but ohh it has been a long time and i have learned so much and changed so much.. from a demented pessimistic aloof loner (well i couldnt even describe it more) i can say i have changed my outlook in life in so many ways. the blogsphere is one of the big factors that have helped me.

At first I thought I'd never get a computer (a last hold out) and now I'm blogging. I have to say it's been a great experience so far thanks to people like you. I don't know what I'd do without IF folks!
BTW, I love your moon post :)
And thanks for letting me know Lolo means Grandfather. You wouldn't believe some of the things I've heard it means ! My Grandfather that I was named after was an artist. I like to think he'd be proud of me.

i found what i wrote december 2, 2005

"it would only be a waste of space if you believe that 'we' are the center of the universe.. if you think of 'us' as a passing virus to that same universe it looks quite different... :)

but this painting of yours is really beautiful, no matter the thoughts.. :)"

the last alinea is still valid.. so is the first but very off topic this time..
this painting of yours is really beautiful, no matter the thoughts.. :-)

Lovely post. All those nostalgia you must be feeling great. I have recently started blogging and to have it is like having a small baby. You have to nurture it and take care and its really fun playing with it. lol

rrramone.. its actually making me nervous.. you might have a beautiful one and mine is erm.. hmm.. hmm.. (well, better you judge it when you see it)

sandy.. yeah, creating a blog is like nurturing a child indeed. before it comes out, you have nine months or so of creating and adding delectables then as it comes to its first year, it attracts friends and continues to grow and learn with its environment!
