New Home, New Journey
As some of you may know, I am slowly moving to a new tumblr account, which I will use in the next few weeks or so. Yep, you read that right, I will leave this soon.
Don’t worry. I will still be the same j-joe you once knew. That pseudonym is going to rest for now and will be replaced by none other than.. me, Jereek Espiritu! Haha. Lately I’ve been thinking and thinking a lot about this movement.. maybe you could help me with this by reading my latest post on my new account?
Thank you for the awesome 4 years with j-joe. All of my followers will forever remain in my heart. Aha! I am about to leave now, so good bye everyone. Hoping to see you on my new home!
P.S. If you don’t have any idea of what’s going on, I suggest you to read this first post on my new blog.
A Brand New Start
Four years have passed and here I am, still running this blog. Started from being a maker of wordarts, flashy-hipsterish gifs to dynamic typographies and vivid illustrations. Never did I expect to see this growth of mine when I signed up for tumblr. There was only one clear thing on my mind back then. To have this “blog” as my visual diary.
But as time went by, this so-called diary has been deteriorating in a dreadful manner. It may not seem like that to some, but for me, it was.
Two years ago, 2012, was really my year. I was blessed and grateful enough to be part of such an amazing journey. I won a bunch of contests, went to a couple of events and seminars, and most of all, met a lot of artists. It was such a surreal experience every time I remember those moments. And for this year, I want to set things straight and put it back where it is supposed to be. I want to fix myself, my vision, my goals and my dreams.
As we enter this new year, I’d like to share my visual diary in a more creative and appropriate way wherein you get to feel the artsy vibe in perusing my blog. For the next coming months, you would see some drastic changes, maybe on me, but more on my blog. Don’t worry. It’s for the better. I wish that this roller-coaster ride would be awesome once it starts. Hopefully, you’d come and ride with me! Haha. Cheers and thanks for the wonderful 2013!
Merry Christmas: 2013!
So far, college has been quite a great journey for me. I never thought I would encounter difficult yet fun challenges. Hopefully, as I go along, I’d keep my face and chin high up, knowing that God is with me.
Merry Christmas everyone! Wishing you a lot of joyful thoughts!
InstaQuote: Personalities 2
Not so long ago, Paul Walker and Roger Rodas, his friend, left an event for Walker’s own charity for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. Shortly afterwards, the car crashed on a tree which caused their death.
As for Nelson Mandela, he suffered from a respiratory infection which marked the end of his life.
These two people had shown a lot of dedication and compassion for people who are in dire need of something. Sadly though, their lives had ended soon enough. But hey, they had left inspirational words for everyone, so I thought of sharing them. Be inspired!
Animo La Salle!
Here is the sample mock-up of the shirt design I made for a contest ran by the organization, Moo Media, I really love. Apparently, just like the usual contest you see on social media, the design with the most number of likes will have a high chance in winning. So, if you find mine worth winning, then you could help me by simply liking this photo here (comments are highly appreciated as well). Cheers and thank you!
Say Yahoo, with Yabu!
Ever since this Japanese restaurant that serves deliciously oozing food in the city opened, there seemed to be a lot of raves. It was only then last week that I was able to eat there because the first time we tried to line up, we were at the 26th! No one would want that unless you have this so-called ‘patience’ which I lack. He he. I know of course that food is an exemption but we were there on the mall for an errand so we had to eat immediately. Haha such reason.
For an avid fan of crisp yet lip-smacking appetizing food, Yabu is a big yes! From the unlimited Japanese rice to the mouth-watering Miso soup, you will surely love them all. It is really a good place to dine in if you want to get your money’s worth! All you can just say is ‘Yahoo with Yabu!’ (naks slogan #advertisingmajor)
