The Alfonso Mucha Art Book

I went to Czech Republic last 2010 with the whole family and bought my first ever European art book. Luckily I got an English copy so I don’t think it’s necessary to have it called “european.” Haha. Anyways! You all know that Alfonso Mucha has been one of the greatest Art Nuevo painter…and in his country you can see a LOT of his paintings in the streets of Prague, Vienna, etc. The locals respect the great painter just like Mozart and everyone KNOWS him like some kind of “god like creative genius.” But he actually is ♥

OK! So here are some pages from the art book! It’s very detailed and tells the story of Alfonso Mucha starting from his early plates (yes he did plates!), paintings, commissions, and even photography. Although the art book lack quotes from the man himself, the author however preserved the legacy of the artist through detailed historical facts.

TRAVEL: Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas Cruise 1

AHOY MATES! YO HO YO HO a pirates life for me! My family and I decided to take a cruise trip in the Caribbean for a change! So we heard that the Allure of the Seas, (biggest ship in the world), was the perfect choice for a cruise getaway. We were aboard for 7 days and enjoyed all the activities inside like theatre shows, thematic parties, bar performances, mini parades and yes swimming! Our cruise destinations were Labadee-Haiti, Cozumel-Mexico and Falmouth-Jamaica. 

The cruise ship has almost 6,000 employees and everyone was really friendly and welcoming. There were even 700 filipino workers inside so I really felt at home when we were given free drinks and sinigang for our meals! Hehe! Mabuhay!

You can take surfing lessons, zip line activities, rock climbing, basketball, dodgeball and even go night clubbing every night for free! (Although they had to check my Cruise Pass twice to see that I’m really 22…they think I’m 12 and I’m not complaining hihi).

Yes, they have Starbucks inside their lobby and an art gallery in their garden. I frequent the gallery because the people inside were really knowledgeable with the cruise ship’s resident artist BRITTO. 

This is my view from our deck room. We were three people inside the deck room so you can imagine how spacious it was! :) and the whole ship has 17 floors! 

At night, if you’re fed up with all the clubbing sounds from the 80’s tweens like me and my sister would just hang out in the garden grounds or better known as Central Park and listen to some jazz music.

So if we’re not doing anything, my siblings and I would roam around and watch the various activities inside the boat. Here in this picture, we were watching some afternoon news in their LED projector. 

MAC Cosmetics for Cinderella

YUP! Even my artworks use MAC Cosmetics for their make up! Haha I love this! I just noticed that I use a lot of color pallette from various make up brands and mostly from MAC! Hopefully after this artwork, MAC still has some stocks left for their lipstick inspired by the upcoming Cinderella film! I need to buy it!

I’ve been trying to create this fashionable character for my personal blog and out of 5 concept arts, this one clicked. Although it’s a bit simple and the hair isn’t my signature style (the good ol super-duper-lineart hair), I prefer to explore more of her movements as I progress on what i’ll be writing about in my personal blog. ♥
