Backpacking nine countries for 50,000 pesos is the bold marketing claim of the most recent book by Robert Alejandro entitled “The Sketching Backpacker “. Published by ROX (Recreational Outdoor Exchange) Philippines, the book aims to entice local backpackers to do a circuit around South East Asia and some parts of China on a measly budget. Being a long time fan of Robert Alejandro’s graphical works, I was excited about this book, but does it deliver as it was purported to do?
It’s been almost a year since I launched this personal website. I first named the site as lightscape.net but after a while thought that it’s another branding and identity issue I have to work again on so why not bank on my own name instead, even how little known it may be? I changed the url but retained the design and content of the site. Now, I think it’s about time I refined this site to serve a much bigger and professional purpose. Not only adding a portfolio but a blog as well. I was intending to relaunch the site last Easter but had to attend to business matters first. But as they say, it’s better late than never. So I welcome you to the relaunch of ferdzdecena.com
