The Evolution of Omni

Note: “Omni” is the name I’ve given to this blog’s mascot, the wolf.

I’ve always had a thing for wolves and drew them differently from how they are usually perceived. Although these sort of animals are known to be very fierce, I drew the kind of wolf that appeared rather gentle and kind.  The reason I did so was to symbolically explain my dislike for stereotyping both in physical and personal aspects. This later mirrored the idea for me to come up with a graphic novel (pretty sure this will take a while to come up with) based on my personal life using the story of Omni.

A lot of pressure from studies, feelings of isolation from class during high school and family problems had kept me for a while thinking about the impossibility of this project plus the idea that artists could not profit much came pretty daunting to me due to my dad’s doubts. If it were not by God’s grace, I would not have bothered experimenting on the wolf character design at all. Continue reading “The Evolution of Omni”

Goodbye Cruel World

Disclaimer: This article is for the struggling Christians undergoing seemingly unreasonable situations. It is my hope to encourage them not to lose heart despite the struggles. If you happen to have questions about this topic or would like to discuss, feel free to drop me an email (see contact page).

Life in many ways can be undeniably cruel and unjust. With the access of social media, it’s very easy to get torn by all kinds of news all over the world aside from that of the personal lives of your friends. In fact, if you ask me if it’s possible to evade the harsh realities of life, I’d say that would be unlikely. Turning to alcohol, smoking, entertainment as such to forget these realities for a while doesn’t necessarily make things lighter permanently because unexpected troubles are yet to come and be faced. These outlets also may relieve stress momentarily only to face it once again the next day—a countless unpredictable cycle of relieving and being overwhelmed.

The Space who fills up our matter

Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall. —Psalm 55:22

It’s understood that school, home or even office work can wear us down. In fact, we want it over so badly that it seems that is all that “matters”. And suddenly life becomes meaningless.

Matter is space occupied and has mass.
It is no wonder we humans would do anything to fill up our “spaces” in the stuff we think “matter”. Remember how God’s love filled you and your “spaces” up? Our “spaces” are the things we yearn like attention, time, love, peace, and all that keeps us moving, happy and the things we think is life worth living for.
