ILLUMINATI

Not THE Illuminati, but the one from Marvel Comics.

This group is made up of Professor X, Black Bolt, Namor, Doctor Strange, Iron Man, and Mr. Fantastic.

I’ll provide a link here if you guys want to know more about them.

Now, I didn’t really plan on making any blog posts about my sketches but I am extremely proud of this set that I have made.

I wanted to make three groups of two with each set having a distinct trait or the characters having something similar with each other.

In this first set, I started with the two kings first.

Black Bolt and Namor.

For the second set, I put Professor X and Doctor Strange together. Something about them makes it feel like they’re good together because of the traits that they have. A good leader, they’re powers, etc.

Last but certainly not the least, I put two of the greatest minds together, Iron Man and Mr. Fantastic.

And finally, I present to you, the ILLUMINATI 

This set actually tested my patience and determination. There were so many times where I wanted to just quit and give up on this set just because I suddenly felt like it was too tedious and a waste of time. I finished it though. I had to. It felt like I would let myself down if I didn’t. I pushed through and here we are. The biggest and best sketches I have ever made in my personal opinion.

Now, who’s next? 

Any suggestions on who I should draw next? Comment down below!

 

VANS 50th ANNIVERSARY STICKER PACK

Damn. They look so good. 

My first ever Vans and I got this bad boy. 

My parents bought this in Europe a while back during their trip there. As far as I know, you won’t be able to find this pair for sale here in the Philippines unless it’s from resellers. 

The box is a bit worn out but it’s just your typical Vans box. Nothing too special.

The toe box and heel area have this navy blue suede material. The body is just your typical material, I’m just not sure if it’s canvas.

The design is by BEHANCE and this is why they chose this style:

“Stickers are one of the most iconic items in skateboard culture. 

Every skater has its own sticker collection. Every board, every skate shop It´s full of stickers. 

For my Vans 50th anniversary pack I wanted to bring back all this sticker culture with a print built with real vintage Vans stickers and using it in the most iconic Vans siluetes like the Sk8 Hi, Oldskool and Authentic”

The sole is still the classic gum sole with honey comb pattern that every Old Skool and Sk8-Hi has.

You can basically pair this with any outfit. Besides my Chuck Taylor’s, this pair is my second favorite go to kicks at the moment.

It’s the same with Chuck’s. You can’t go wrong with Old Skool’s.

LOUD BASSTARD

NOT. A. SPEAKER.

Well, in a way, it is. It’s more of an amplifier. Imagine playing songs on your phone and putting it inside a mug or a cup to amplify the sound, except 100x BETTER. 

We didn’t actually buy this. It was actually given to us during a trip hosted by Ford and Bambike (if you guys want to know what we did during that day, click here).

Personally, I don’t always use the Loud Basstard. Why? Whenever I play songs on my phone, I usually use it at the same time to play games, go on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other stuff I usually do on my phone. The Loud Basstard requires you to put your phone in the slot and leave it there the entire time. It’s good for people who aren’t on their phones almost 100% of the time. 

Quality-wise, it doesn’t sound like you put your phone in a tin can to amplify the sound. It sounds good. Not great but not bad at all.

Love it. Like it. Hate it. To each his own. I just LIKE it. That’s it. Nothing too special about it.
