Clint Barton: Make use of your waking hours.

Ladies and gentlemen I give you, Hawkeye. There is no glamour or intelligent drabble to accompany this post. I simply couldn’t sleep and thought to draw this character out of my system.

Photography :  InFoolView   I’ve always had this affinity for words, at times I write more and there will be times when I’ll be drawing more. This year and the one before it has been a whirlwind, to say the least; to say ‘whirlwind’ might even border on the side of understatement. I’ve come near…

Remnants of the Majapahit Empire

When the few sages of facebook, twitter, wordpress and (dare I say) tumblr have been exhausted—and it happens more often than not—I find myself digging for gold back in Google Books.

A Balaraw in my pocket.

When we visited the Special Forces Regiment last November 2011, I got myself an itty-bitty buck knife. They said we were going on a trek and would camp out in the mountains for the night, so I wanted to be prepared. Well… I soon found that my buck knife was better off being used as a…

…So I became a NINJA. I just thought I’d update my picture for the ILLUSTRATOR page. I’ve always had a propensity for extra-lengthy headdress tails. As it turns out, there is historical backing for this propensity; making it accurate to portray Labaw Donggon and Datu Paubari with such windswept accessories. The pudong or turban was…

The 300 workout plan: Making sure your body never hits plateau.

I have great respect for these guys. People have often left CGI and steroids to do the explaining when watching the film, 300. Just because the backgrounds have been added digitally, it didn’t follow that the ripped Spartans had left all of their aesthetics to computer animation.

How to catch a body kick.

This is how you catch an opponent who’s threatening to kick the side of your body. Hmmmm… it’s not the best representation; considering, in the frame before this, Labaw Donggon had already been hit. This is what is supposed to happen, were this an ideal Muay Thai spar session: 1. Opponent kicks to side of…
