Sketchtravel – around the world, one sketch at a time

By on March 31, 2015
To say that Sketchtravel is a 'beautiful compilation,' would be a gross understatement however. It is definitely that of course, but what Daisuke, Gerald and all the other artists came up was also mind-blowing, staggering and awesome at the same time.

The Longest Way Home by Andrew Mccarthy | book review

By on May 9, 2013
The premise sounds like a heartbreaking memoir of one man who is just afraid to commit to a serious relationship. One fine morning he just decided to find his true self that probably got lost amidst a high paying corporate job or a terribly perfect marriage. That may just remind you of a Julia Roberts movie, but thankfully that is not the case here.
Brennan Mercado
The Philippines

Brennan is an electronics engineer by profession. From time to time, he gets to travel beyond his office cubicle, try new restaurants or catch up with his terribly long list of unread books. He likes museums, spicy food and talking with habal-habal drivers. For now, he's still deciding on whether to play Pokémon GO or not.
