Meteor Shower



I remember seeing a cartoon similar to this one a few months ago.  Here you go:
I'm not sure who the original author is so I could credit but I got the image from here.

Hand Lettering Postcards

It seems like I'm interested more in hand lettering than in comic-making these days so I'll probably be uploading more of my hand lettering postcards.  Or maybe I've just been looking more into instagram nowadays so those photos-which-show-a-story is rubbing off on me.






I'm always jealous of those who not only makes great illustrations but takes great photos as well. Both illustrating and taking photos do not come easily to me; although I honestly think I've improved my illustrating skills throughout the years.

Room 203


I was thinking of creating a comic strip with Hades in honor of Halloween.  But I thought there might be some other death-related Greek Mythology Gods which led me to Thanatos.

Thanatos is the Greek God of Peaceful Death, the personification of death itself.  His touch is gentle and he carries off humans to the underworld when it is their time to go.  I think it's cool that he seems not to be a scary god and that he shows that death could be non-violent and peaceful.

There are no Aliens Here


So at first I wanted to make this an alien short story.  Alas, it turned out to be a comic strip again. :-S

The Seal and the Shark


This was inspired by all those shark Youtube videos I've been watching recently.  I know, I'm such a nerd.

The Sleeping Princess


This isn't the first time I've done a Sleeping Beauty-inspired comic strip.  It's just such an iconic Fairy Tale that I always think about it whenever I'm in the mood to create something fairy tale-ish.  Here is the first one I created a long time ago!

Cattle Herding


And on to some blog news:
So I finally succombed and got a new domain name.  I guess I just grew tired of my old domain (www.homemadecomicstrips.com) and thought I don't want it to seem like I just post comic strips all the time.  And since I've had "Snippets in Colors" in my mind for a few months now, I went ahead and got that domain.  So www.snippetsincolors.com it is!

Selene and Endymion: The Reality


Sometimes "reality" does not meet expectations.  

Backstory of this Greek Myth Cartoon:
Selene is the Goddess of the Moon and she had a crush on Endymion.  She asked Zeus to let him sleep forever in exchange of eternal youth (in other stories, it was Endymion who asked this).  And so Selene visits Endymion every night while he sleeps, contented with just having a glimpse of his "beauty".

Ouija Connection


I rarely inject dark topics in my comic strips (I reserve my short stories for that) but there's always a first time.

The Gloomy Underworld


So I know I depicted Persephone in a not-so-good light in this comic strip but in reality, she and Hades are my favorite couple.

A Modern, Short Story of the Pandora's Box


I was going through YouTube videos of vloggers who bought Mystery Boxes the other day.  Since I'm currently in a minimalist living phase, I'm pretty sure I'll regret buying something like that.  But I have to admit, it's a super fun concept although people most of the time just get trash.

**Stars**

A very random post.


I got very sad when I learned that Stephen Hawking passed on.  I'm not a big science fan, I haven't read any of his books (but I'm planning to) but he was always such an inspiration, a person who was completely immersed doing something he loves despite difficulties.  I'm jealous of people like these  because there are days when I think I'm not doing anything significant that could change the world and always have respect for people who do, not because of money, but because of love.

RIP Stephen Hawking, may you find happiness amongst the stars.

**"Art" was made using a random black paper I have, a white Uni-ball Signo and a gold Gelly Roll Metallic.  Ahh... pens are making me soo happy nowadays!  I'm a bit into minimalism and I consider them clutter but I can't help it!

Where There is Love


Trying my hand on lettering again and came out with this piece.  I loved how the letters were created but the drawings of the aliens, not as much.  Also, the quote was from Mahatma Gandhi.  I wasn't able to put his name in the illustration since in the beginning I thought it was just a random quote.

And of course the reason I made this illustration is for this special day...

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY everyone!
