I’m Back!

Guys! Sorry for not updating for the past few months. I’ve been so busy because I am now a college student. I am taking up Bachelor of Multimedia Arts major in Animation. This is a dream for me. At first, my parents did not like this course. They want me to be an engineer or architect which is the reason why I took STEM(Science, Technology,Engineering,Mathematics) Strand in my Senior High. But that is not what I want. With all the discussions, I had convinced them that this is what I truly want.

I hope I can update more frequently. By the way, I made an instagram account. Just click the link below or type #ArtsTimeWithDen

Exhibits Working in Progress

Have you visited an exhibit? Exhibits are fun to visit because they offer you lots of eye candy. They must be visually appealing so that your exhibit won’t be deserted. We don’t want that to happen, right?

Let me share you some behind the scenes of our exhibit. This is the preparations we made for the incoming HSU Week.


And that’s all for tonight’s post. Until next time, bye!

HSU Week: It’s Time for Exhibits!

Before this week ends let me share to you guys the memories that I had this week.

March 5-9, 2018: HSU Week for University of Makati

I got really busy during this week with all the exbibits that we are in-charge of. But I made sure that before the week ends I should visit other exhibits. I am amazed with what their exhibits offer; artworks everywhere! I am from STEM Strand and our exhibits mostly offers experiments and products. I visited Filipino, English and Contemporary Arts Exhibit.

Here are some photos that I’ve taken from those exhibits:

These dresses are made from recyclable materials like newspapers, plastic bags, magazines and etc.
These works are inspired from Philippine folklores like aswang, manananggal, magayon and etc.
These crafts are really amazing. They are mostly DIYs. The one work here that I am really amazed with is with “Limit”. They turn a water gallon container as an organizer. For me, who has a lot of messed up things, this would be helpful.
This is from Contemporary Arts Exhibit. They are really cute. It looks like they built a small village there. They also exhibited soap sculptures.
Well these works are also amazing. I can imagine how much effort and patience they exerted in assembling the parts there. These kind of designs is best in making frames or borders.
These works are also made from recyclable materials. This only proves that there is no waste in arts.
This one are the exhibit for old Filipino literature that we have. I am surprised that they still have the old comics that our parents read in their childhood.
Wire Artwork of a Tree. It’s really beautiful.
Junk Artworks. They are called like that because these junks are turned into beautiful crafts.
Say hello to Doraemon and Wall-E.
This one is called coffee painting. I made something like this before. The aroma of the coffee while your doing your artwork is really tempting. I remembered passing here and I can strongly smell the aroma of the coffee.

This is from our exhibits. Our strand participated in Physics, Biology, Capstone and Investigatory Project Exhibit.

These are the things that we do on are exhibit. They are mostly experiments because of the strand we are in. We exhibited DNA Extraction, Series Parallel Circuit, Essential Oil Extraction, Flower Mounting and Fire Tornado Experiment.

And that’s all for tonight’s post. Until next time, bye!

Paper Flowers

Running out of ideas for design? This is perfect for you. I just recently learned how to do this craft from my friend and I want to share this to you guys.

What you need:

  • Crepe paper or tissue paper (any paper that resembles their texture will do)
  • Scissors
  • Compass
  • Pencil
  • Glue or glue gun
  • Sticks (optional)

What to do:

1. Fold the crepe paper then draw a circle with the aid of compass.

2. Cut the circle using scissors.

3. Prod the tip of the pencil or stick through the center of the cutted crepe paper. Slide it up to the half-way middle part of the pencil or stick.

4. Crumple each layers of the paper all in the same side.

5. If you are already satisfied with it. Take out your paper flower on the pencil or stick then seal off the hole with a glue gun. This will help the petals of paper flower to be intact.

You can also do it with a stick acting as its stem or clump them together. I just do mine without stem because I use them in decorating our panel for biology exhibit.

And that’s it for tonight’s post. Until next time. Bye!

Face Painting

Art is not only limited on paper. You can also do art on your skin. Last Thursday, I am invited to be an artist in face painting. This is for the parade for intramurals in our university. Well, this is my second time doing this. The first time I did it was very tiring. Standing for a long time and doing a lot of rounds for a lot of people. It takes a lot of toll for my spine. Well, it’s different now. I had a lot of co-artist that I worked with. Compared before that only three of us is working.

Here are some photos:

The theme for the face painting is the bird “Heron”. This is the representation of our university. I don’t know if this one still looks like a heron because he personally requested the design.
This is the other side.
This are my friends. They just participated in the parade.
This one is my guinea pig. She is the one whom I first face painted.
This one is the odd ball among the others. I am not the one did his face paint. Well this is a requested design and he said that he wants to look emo.

And that’s it for tonight’s post. Until next time, bye!

Future Evolution: Penguins

Our biology teacher told us to choose an existing organism and predict its future evolution. At first, I had hard times thinking what organism still needs an evolution. For me, they look just fine the way they are. Then I just remembered some pointers for evolution and then settled with this animal: Penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri)

This is the existing penguin we have today.


Kingdom: Animalia

Phylum: Chordata

Class: Aves

Order: Sphenisciformes sharpe, 1891

Family: Spheniscidae bonaparte, 1831

Temporal Range: Paleocene-recent


  • Leopard seals
  • Sharks
  • Killer whales
  • Skúas
  • Antartic pigeons
  • Sea Lions
  • Seagulls


  • Krill
  • Fish
  • Squid
  • Other forms of small sea life
This is my wild prediction for penguin’s future evolution.


Due to the inability of the penguins to make an offense with their predators, penguins will evolve their body in order to have features that can counter their predators. Bigger flippers and tail are for their increase in mobility in water. They can also use it to intimidate their predator birds. Longer and sharper bill and claws are for their counter offense with their enemies. Longer legs are for their mobility in land. They don’t need to slowly hop. Longer neck are for easily gathering their prey.

Nurarihyon no Mago: Rikuo Nura

Are you still familiar with the anime “Nurarihyon no Mago” or “Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan”?

This is what you call super transformation.

This is Rikuo Nura, the heir of the evil yokai Nura Clan. He transforms into a yokai at night for only six hours. He doesn’t want to take over as the head of their clan because he hates yokai. This anime is fun to watch for those who loves action and fantasy genres.

One of my oldest works. I just do some redraw on the faded parts.

It’s about Momonga, a powerful wizard and master of the dark guild Ainz Ooal Gown, who is trapped in a virtual reality game Yggdrasil. The servers went down but he is still there and also to his surprise, the NPCs starts to act on their own. With all this happening, Momonga commands his loyal servants to help him investigate the situation to uncover what is going on.

Overlord’s Characters

This is Albedo. She is one of the NPC servants of Momonga and probably the most loyal one. Maybe that’s because she is set to be “madly in love” with him. Albedo is the Overseer of the Floor Guardians of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She is in charge of the general management and supervises the activities of the seven Floor Guardians, meaning that she ranks above all the other NPCs in Nazarick. But even though she is a high ranking servant, she has this must see attitude.
