Purple is my new color

(i took this photo from a flower store somewhere in Tagaytay City)

Lots of things happening to my life, and lots of changes too. I'm very busy fixing the Toy Con and being a one man army as the guy behind all those media creator and creative stuff for our event, the time eat all of my schedule and that's the reason of no quality content here in my blog. I'm trying to take a break for awhile,and maybe post a good one if ever I can have a spare time in blogging.

I'm still editing this TVC and looks like that I'll make it on time before our event briefing at 6pm. There's an event at CCP Harbor Square, but looks like that I won't able to make it since the distance of the place is too far from Megamall.

Purple is now my new color, getting lucky in this color and I thank the almighty Purple gods that this brings me luck and make my summer so colorful. And check it out that the Toy Con poster background is colored purple, and thanks to everyone for giving a nice feedback about the style of the poster for this year. I retired from the food and gadgets thing,and now I have this new gadget with me and I'm still having a hard time in using it. I'll post a pic of it here soon without any detail of this new toy I have.

its weird that its already 2:30am and someone texted me a good morning, and the number is not registered in my phone. I'm receiving lots spams and forward messages and sometimes i get entertained in reading all incoming messages, some are silly while others are for serious matters.

and because that purple color or violet makes my heart rolls around... I like to share this Purple hunt contest by Yahoo! Philippines, check their site and find out about this Purple craze for this month of June 2009.

Marvel and Tim Gunn's Models Inc. comics

here's my Philippine Fashion week 2009 tribute, since I didn't attend any of the show last week because of my busy schedule, will just observe the fashion week here in my blog with a dose of comic geekerie.

Marvel Comics is proud to present what is sure to be the most talked about release on and off the catwalk. What happens when the most iconic figure in the fashion industry teams up with the best-dressed hero in the comic book world? Find out when Tim Gunn & Iron Man join forces this August in a special back-up story in Models, INC. #1. Models, INC. is a limited series set in the world of high heels, high drama and high fashion, and features Marvel's Fashionistas Mary Jane Watson, Patsy Walker, Millie the Model and more. As reported everywhere from the New York Times to "Entertainment Weekly" to "The Today Show," this pairing of Iron Man and Tim Gunn is the very model of a perfect match.

The special Tim Gunn story, "Loaded Gunn" is written by Eisner-nominated author Marc Sumerak. In "Loaded Gunn," the New York Museum of Fashion is hosting an exhibit of Iron Man's armor—the best suits in the Marvel Universe. When a villainous threat crashes the event, it's up to Iron Man to save the day, but he will need help from the man best-suited for the job: Tim Gunn. As he told the New York Times, Mr. Gunn is thrilled to be a part of this groundbreaking endeavor. "To say I'm a character in a comic book is wild!" The first issue of MODELS, INC. hits stands August 26, just days after Tim Gunn's wildly popular "Project Runway" returns for its new season. This collectible comic book will be available with a special variant by AMAZING SPIDER-MAN artist Phil Jimenez featuring Iron Man and Tim Gunn, the two best-dressed men in the world who know how to make it work!

Complemented by the Tim Gunn/Iron Man back-up story, MODELS, INC. tells the tale of Fashion Week gone deadly. In this four-issue limited series written by Paul Tobin and illustrated by Vicenc Voillagrasa, the traditionally glamorous New York event proves to be murderous, not just on the models' feet but for the models themselves. It's up to some of the best-dressed detectives in the Marvel Universe, including Patsy Walker and Mary Jane Watson, to stop the killer before he strikes again!

It seems in these days of economic crisis and dwindling resources, trivial stuff like toys, hobbies and games would be the furthest thing from people’s minds. But apparently, hobbyists and collectors remain unfazed by this downturn and instead stay steady in anticipation for the next big thing in the pop culture landscape to turn collectible. They don’t have much long to wait, as the biggest event in pop culture, sci-fi/fantasy and mass media touches down in June with an explosive impact!

The 8th Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention 2009 hits hard with the most anticipated gathering of toy distributors, gamers, pop memorabilia collectors and cosplay enthusiasts this side of the planet. This year’s TOYCON will take place on June 13 and 14, at the SM Megatrade Hall 2 and 3 from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM.

Highlight for the event this year will be the launch of summer movie blockbusters, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and the much awaited GI JOE: Rise of Cobra. Transformers and GI Joe fans will revel in these two famous toy properties with a collectors’ exhibit and movie merchandising displays from the movie’s distributor, Solar-Pioneer films.
Another exciting highlight for the event is the presence of MINDstyle, an international design company that focuses on delivering unique and original works to a very exclusive market by way of quality limited collectibles. They pioneered the vinyl toy design world with such artists as Michael Lau, Kathie Olivas, Brant Peters, Ron English and Buff Monster. MINDstyle will bring in two internationally renowned toy designers: Tim Tsui, one of the hottest Hong Kong figure artist illustrators. He has exhibited his works word wide designing everything from sneakers to toys to comics. And TobyHK, MINDstyle’s creative director whose works range from graphics, illustrations, web designs, characters or vinyl figures.

TOYCON will host the Philippine leg of MINDstyle and Disney’s Stitch Experiment 626 Project Custom Art Tour, a fresh look at the beloved Disney character through the eyes of some of today’s brightest artists in the vinyl toy design field. The tour will feature hand-customized, one-of-a kind versions of a special DIY blank Stitch created expressly for the Philippine TOYCON.

TOYCON wouldn’t be complete without the annual Live Action Figure Cosplay competition, the biggest gathering of all, sci-fi/fantasy, comics and anime-inspired costume players in the Philippines. And of course the main draw for collectors is the huge retailer floor where they can hunt for the rarest and latest, most sought-after collectors’ pieces ranging from action figures, dolls, diecast cars and robots, comics and cards, artwork and pop memorabilia from all over the world.

The 8th Philippine TOYCON is sure to be the pinnacle of this year’s pop culture conventions. It will certainly have everything there for young and old alike to share and enjoy.

TOYCON is organized by Collectibles Unlimited partnered with the SM Megatrade Hall and is presented by Globe Broadband, Solar Entertainment and HERO. Also brought to you by Royal Tru Orange, Maxi Collector, Comic Odyssey, E-Games, MINDstyle, Toy Kingdom, and WACOM. In cooperation with SugarFree and Blue, Warner Brothers and Creative Voices with media partners, Jack TV, ABS-CBN, Fudge Magazine and the official music channel, MTV.

8th Philippine Toy Con 2009 production notes 8

I'm still finishing the poster for the event and I'm having some problems in my laptop for failing in loading and saving my 200mb PSD file. And it looks like that my laptop is needed to rest for an hour in order to load everything. Poor laptop is almost 2 years old and it is heavily used everyday.

My mission is to finish this poster design before lunch time. Its 4am already and I will take a rest.

My right wrist, arm and palm is badly injured. I accidentally slipped down in a wet drive way in Libis, and I feel like I'm Iceman sliding in a standing position going down for about 10 feet. And landed in the wet ground butt first and two legs in the air.

I'm watching Spider-man 2 movie in my PSP while I wait for this file to be finish, and its my favorite movie sequel for Spider-man. He almost quit as a super hero and came back to save the day, just like me when I quit Toy Con last year and then came back for this year. I'm going to watch Spider-man 3 tomorrow, this time... Gwen Stacy is around.

If you are Spider-man, who would you choose to be your girl. Mary Jane Watson? Gwen Stacy ? or Felicia Hardy (Black Cat) ?

that's the big update. Btw, Lace just update her blog post check it out.
