Be aware of the Mirrors Ladies!
Top: 2 way glass / Bottom: Mirror
When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., how many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror (i.e., they can see you, but you can’t see them)? There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms . It is very difficult to positively identify the surface by looking at it.
So, how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of mirror we are looking at?
Just conduct this simple test:
Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is GENUINE mirror. However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE! IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR!
“No Space, Leave the Place” So remember, every time you see a mirror, do the “fingernail test.” It doesn’t cost you anything.
Well this is interesting…

Whew! Finally Graphika Manila is over. :) I was extremely nervous a few days before my presentation. I hope people who came to the event learned a lot from my talk & from the presentations of the other speakers. I had to talk fast and restrain myself from explaining the other slides in detail because I had only 35minutes to present.
Here are some of the slides of the tools I use (for illustration work) and the process of creating my textures. It’s really easy.
Making the texture using ink & tissue
Applying colors and enhancing the texture in PS

With the present generation and the quick rise of technology, most of today’s children do not grow up with toys like lego blocks and barbie dolls instead even toddlers know how to operate an itouch, cellphone, gameconsoles and even computers. Whatever happened to coloring books? There is nothing like the old days, coloring with crayons and feeling bad when you break one. Now the makers of these crayons returns to claim their former glory with the Crayola Crayon Maker.

Dead At Seventeen by John Berrio
Agony claws my mind. I am a statistic. When I first go there I felt very much alone. I was over-whelmed by grief, and I expected to find sympathy. I found no sympathy. I saw only thousands of others whose bodies were as badly mangled as mine. I was given a number and placed in a category.The category was called “Traffic Fatalities.”
The day I died was an ordinary school day. How I wish I had taken the bus! But I was too cool for the bus. I remember how I wheedled the car out of Mom. ”Special favor,” I pleaded. “All the kids drive.” When the 2:50 p.m. bell rang, I threw my books in the locker…free until tomorrow morning! I ran to the parking lot, excited at the thought of driving a car and being my own boss.
