Highschool Sweet Art

Sunday, April 22, 2007

Last night, I met up with MJ, one of my closest highschool buddies, who I haven't seen for ten years, literally.

Back in the days of uniforms, assignments and extremely thick textbooks, we had hours of fun just doodling on the edges of our notebooks. Give us a pencil, a black ballpen, a red ballpen and some relatively blank paper and we'd have a marvelous time engulfed in our twisted little daydream world filled with cliffs, steam rollers and cartoon versions of our classmates and professors. We had a twisted sense of humor even before pubescence.

We liked defying the laws of physics...

And the laws of anatomy...

Among other things, Disney characters were a staple in our doodles. That is the Little Mermaid amidst a chemistry computation.

This is an ad for a sequel we had in mind...

For some time we were obsessed with Pocahontas. We would re-write the script and make her Kenny-like, dying in every scene but magically resurrecting after a few cels. There was this serene moment when Captain John Smith and Pocahontas meet. A waterfall-induced misty atmosphere, orchestral music, a dramatic head turn with wind blowing in Pocahontas' hair, John Smith awed by her exotic beauty...

We've always had a thing for cliffs...

And for utter stupidity...

The best doodle MJ ever made in my opinion was this...

Don't tell me you don't remember Mara Clara and the show's title card with the main character's pictures in frames with the squiggly letterings on top... this was his interpretation of the final breakdown of the martyr known as Mara.

MJ now works as a segment writer for a hit noon-time show on local TV. It's funny how things work.


I absolutely need to clean my room now. I turned it upside down just to find these ten plus year old artwork...


I saw this on Carey's blog and I'm all for it.

One Day Blog Silence

Silence can say more than a thousand words.

This day shall unite us all about this unbelievable painful & shocking event and show some respect and love to those who lost their loved ones.

On April 30th 2007, the Blogosphere will hold a One-Day Blog Silence in honor of the victims at Virginia Tech. More than 30 died at the US college massacre.

But it´s not only about them. Many bloggers have responded and asked about all the other victims of our world. All the people who die every day. What about them?

This day can be a symbol of support to all the victims of our world!

All you have to do is spread the word about it and post the graphic on your blog on 30th April 2007. No words and no comments. Just respect, reflect and empathy.
