we had a centennial show for U.P. last weekend here in Cebu and guess who graced the occasion?
it's been ages, since i graduated from art school in U.P. Diliman and last weekend i participated in the show put up by the alumni. the show opened with the oblation dramatically coming to life @ center stage. this model jeremy was a perfect choice for the role; tolentino, the original oblation sculptor would have approved.
"I've never tried wearing a thong, i've turned down BENCH before. i don't know why i actually did this," jeremy told me.
i retorted that there was nothing wrong with it because he wouldn't keep that form forever and this was all for the alma mater.
speaking of my alma mater, i had been looking for some brushes and oil paints for the commissioned mural i'm working on and i chanced upon some discarded sketchpads from the early 80's.
impressionist suede suit, denim jumper with poet shirt, new romantic purple suit
these are some sketches from that era... when i was an idealistic art student who dabbled in fashion design.
high waisted pants, frock coat and pleated shirt.
