Different Responses to Flowers for You!
Flowers for you!
While I was doing the first frame for this post, the idea for this entry just popped up out of nowhere & I had to type it down somewhere very quickly! The last time I heard Ponggo use the line “Flowers for you” was more than a decade ago. He used to give me purple Tulips. Well, I tried drawing purple tulips for this post but they just didn’t go with the background colors I wanted to use. (OC mode!) He knew they were my favorite so he kept on buying them until he discovered that I didn’t put them in a vase. I’d just leave them somewhere to wilt. I didn’t even press them. So Ponggo started to complain about how I didn’t take care of the flowers & told me we could just use the money for a nicer date somewhere. Haha.
The inspiration for “The Sheltered Child” is actually Ponggo. Last weekend, we went out-of-town for some errands & to meet up with some friends. I saw this spot: it was a blank lot with green grass against the blue skies & I asked him to drive towards that place.

Take note that we didn’t step out of the car. We just rolled down one window so that we can take pictures & he started coughing & making these choking sounds. He has pollen allergy so we had to leave right away. The last frame’s mostly me. I think all my happy sappiness & positive energy is captured by the colors that I choose for the cartoons I make, otherwise, my default mode is somewhere between cynical & doomsday scenario. I always have questions like, “So, did they die?” or “What do they need this time?” Hehe. Maybe I just got tired of having to deal with people who turn into the sweetest human beings in the world whenever they need something & go return to their old default selves when they don’t need anything from you anymore 😛
In the end, one question will always have looooots of answers and the answer will always reflect what the other person is trying to say or trying NOT to say 😉
Nuffnang X was launched today! 🙂 For me, it’s like the Instagram app but for all your favorite blogs. If like me, you ever had thoughts like,
“Did Blogger A upload a new post?” or
“Shucks! I really love this blog. I hope I could bookmark it properly but I’m afraid I’ll forget about its existence forever” or
“I really want to find more (insert category here) blogs but I just don’t know where” or
“I’m bored. I really hope I could just catch up on my favorite blogs on the go instead of being stuck with all these overused apps on my phone.”
then Nuffnang X is the answer for you! I actually downloaded it today and started following the blogs that I truly love. I’m also lovin’ the fact that it’s now easier to comment on blogs & reply to blog comments because it’s as easy as sending SMS when you’re on the go. Finally, I’m forever on the search for new design inspiration blogs. I always do this by Instagram account hopping when I have the time. Well, I don’t have to do this as often anymore because Nuffnang X made a blog directory of blogs per category per country 😉 How awesome is that?!
