out of my comfort zone

Was asked by Brown Belly's Kage Gozun to design a bag to sell at a bazaar on Nov. 6. 

Been itching to learn how to paint and play with needle & thread again, so this was the perfect time to stretch those creative muscles --- to get out of my photography comfort zone and experiment with a different medium.  

It was soooo refreshing to create something apart from photography! I should do this more often. :)

Was commissioned by UNO magazine to cover a URCC event.

I was a bit iffy taking on the assignment but I'm not one to back down on a new experience --- men beating each other up, blood-covered faces, and so much testosterone in one place to impregnate a nun! I never thought I'd enjoy it but watching those burly tacticians with knock-out punches & lethal kicks, it was such an adrenaline rush that I found myself cheering for the Filipino contenders. :)

I'll definitely be watching again really, really soon!

Photographed famed running coach, Rio de la Cruz, for UNO magazine's August 2010 issue. It was a sweltering hot day but Coach Rio was cool as a cucumber during the photo shoot. :)
