Dark Art – Quick Batman Doodle

Quick Batman Doodle

Nothing much here, just passing time and training my idle mind to at least do something productive like drawing instead of staring at the ceiling. 

These days, I always give in to that call of silence where I just look up the ceiling and let my mind float into the nothingness… I swear, I’m not doing this intentionally, it just happens.

Lately, I also find playing MTG arena a bit boring. I enjoy building decks but I feel that something is missing… It’s just weird…

Fuck it!

Comic Art – I Miss My Hawkgirl… ♥️

I Miss My Hawkgirl

I have been a big fan of DC Comics and the characters in its multiverse. I prefer DC over Marvel because I think in some ways, DC  comics are more mature and dark compared with Marvel or maybe it’s just me, being a follower of The Batman and The Joker.

Well, aside from them, I also like Hawk Girl or Shayera Hol, I feel that she represents the stronger side of femininity and she’s a total badass in my opinion.

In terms of character knowledge, I’m not really a comic fanatic when it comes to stories. In my younger years, I can’t afford to buy comics. The closest I got to reading them was to borrow from classmates.

About the article, well, I always see her as The Hawkgirl of the family… strong, smart and beautiful… But, it’s been really a while since my wife and I talked. She works in Singapore while I’m here in the Philippines, working and taking care of our kids. It was a small petty issue that blew out of proportion to the point that we engaged into silence and apparently not conversing at all. I’m currently in mourning with the passing of my parents. Maybe it’s lame but I just wish she understood that I’m on an unstable emotional plane that moment… well up until now… I guess… I still dream of them… I still have small breakdowns and other emotional shits that I thought I wouldn’t be experiencing.

I miss my wife and all I want is that we can be together again, I need her now more than ever… I hate putting up a mask everyday like a superhero… I’m tired too… I love my Hawk Girl so much and I wouldn’t want anyone by my side when I grow old…

Something about Shayera...

Shayera Hol was a lieutenant and an instructor in espionage on the planet Thanagar, engaged to be married to Commander Hro Talak. Shayera was sent in advance of the Thanagarian invasion as a scout to determine Earths’ weaknesses should Thanagar’s enemies, the Gordanians, attack. Her cover story was that she was tracking criminals to their fortress when she was unexpectedly teleported to Earth.

Shayera eventually established herself on Earth and became known to the populace as Hawkgirl. During the Imperium invasion, she was telepathically summoned by J’onn J’onzz to assist in repelling the invaders. Hawkgirl was teamed with Superman to take out the aliens’ factories, which propelled smoke into the air to block out the sun. They were unsuccessful and were both captured.J’onn, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern attempted to rescue the two but were themselves captured. The six heroes were held for the alien invaders leader.

After Batman had successfully faked his own death and infiltrated the factory, he reversed the smoke process. The group was able to free themselves and destroy the factory and its duplicates around the world. In fact, Hawkgirl was responsible for destroying the Imperium when he attempted to escape on board his personal shuttle craft. Due to her efforts during the invasion, Hawkgirl was invited aboard the Watchtower, and formed the Justice League along with Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern and J’onn.

Dark Art – The Game. Alone.

The Game. Alone.

I guess when people
forget you…
condemn you…
abandon you…
In your darkest time…
Chaos takes over…
Madness envelops you…
While you rage war
with your demons…
They bathe by the sun…
Living in paradise…
You look up the sky…
Trying to find God…
And all you see…
All you can think of…
Is to live through…
the agony and pain…
Empty your soul…
And just finish the game…

Dark Art and Dark Poetry : Venom

Venom

False Prophets hail…
Into your church of fools…
With books of prayers…
And beads of salvation…
Teach us hypocrisy…
So we may kneel…
and silently speak…
your twisted promises…
to keep us in control…
Like venom to our soul…

Dark Art and Dark Poetry – Eye Serve You

Eye Serve You

Our screen, our mirror…
We always need approval…
From our viewers, our audience…
what they say or like…
a slave to our own image…
a servant to social media…
We neglect everything else…
our family, our life, our love…
to keep that perfect mask…
and hide in our pride…
Until we rot and die inside…

My Drug Buddy – A Short Strip

My Drug Buddy

This is a short strip… about my struggle with anxiety…

People will be there to tell you how life is good and that all of the things I’m going through is just part of life and God’s plan…

They don’t understand… they never will…

I thought I’m strong enough… but as of now… I’m not… But I will try…

I’m in the corner of my room… silent… but my mind is in chaos…

Around other people… I’m just a mask walking around with a face…

My buddy is the type of friend you don’t wanna know…

Poetry – Unmask

Unmask

Demons crawl in my veins
I hear their screams
inside my dreams
I hear their laughters
inside my brain
I need to unmask myself
Before I go insane…

Demons talk to me
I listen to the murmurs
When i’m sill
They play in my head
They moan, they groan
I have to unmask now
And claim my throne…

My Mind in Idle Mode






My Mind in Idle Mode - Poetic Dustbin
My Mind in Idle Mode – Poetic Dustbin

Lately, My mind is a bag of mixed nuts… I have a lot of things to do but don’t know where to start…

I tried to rest my mind and just watch movies and series but still it won’t settle…

I know… I know… a lot of people in this pathetic planet have far worse problems than I do but it doesn’t mean I don’t have the right to feel like a human being, rant, sulk or wallow…

2021 is a rough year for me and my family… and I’m still in the stage where I haven’t accepted everything yet… It may take some time… days, weeks, months and probably years… I lost my parents… both of them… I still have a difficult time waking up and dealing with that fact… I have kids to take care of… and I need to suit up and walk my responsibility on a daily basis…

You know what really sucks? People.

People who you depend on to be with me and understand me during these dark days. They are but they are really not. Instead of lending their ears or time… They blow the horn and yell at me like a barker in a jeepney terminal… They give me these superhero speeches and tell you that life is ok and everything will be ok… But sometimes… sometimes… all I want is someone to talk to or someone who will just listen to my grief…

No one’s like that anymore… And everyone is a social media freak…

Life sucks at the very least…

A Short Dark Comics entitled : ENVY

I’ve always wanted to create short comic strips … and ofcourse my ideas are mostly on the dark side…

This short depicts the extreme result of indulging into your envious side… where you are willing to eliminate competitions literally just to satisfy your ego.

Envy just like any other sin… is always a dangerous toy to play with…

I feel that some humans are never satisfied with what they have or who they are that they tend to compare themselves to other people who they think are better than them.

Success is not a measurement of one’s happiness… nor being better than anyone else…

Envy is a killer.

Philippine Monsters – Aswang
aswang by poetic dustbin
aswang by poetic dustbin

Aswang

Aswang is an umbrella term for various shape-shifting evil creatures in Filipino folklore, such as vampires, ghouls, witches, viscera suckers, and werebeasts. The Aswang is the subject of a wide variety of myths, stories, arts, and films, as it is well-known throughout the Philippines.

Aswangs commonly dwell at night in locations such as cemeteries and woods, as their powers are significantly, or sometimes totally, reduced during the daytime. However, despite being described as wild monsters that often live in the wilderness and outskirts of society, aswangs are also described as creatures that are capable of living within close proximity of or even within the confines of a village, leading to several reports of aswang attacks within large, populated towns and cities. Their ability to adapt and live within the urban and rural environments populated by humans while still maintaining their feral, monstrous nature is cited as a feature that distinguishes aswangs from most other monsters.Aswangs also generally have a fear of light. Wakes were often brightly lit to ensure that aswang would not come to the funeral to steal and devour the corpse. They also have a disdain for noise, but rare occasions describe aswangs attending noisy parties.

Aswangs are traditionally described as one-dimensional monsters and inherently evil by nature with no explicable motives beyond harming and devouring other creatures. Their overtly evil behaviour may be described as an inversion of traditional Filipino values. Traditional aswangs have no bias when selecting their prey and will not hesitate to target their own kin: an inversion of the traditional Filipino value of strong kinship and family closeness. Aswangs are described to be unclean and favor raw human meat to contrast the value of cleanliness and the cooked, spiced, and flavourful food found in traditional Filipino culture. The aswangs are also often described to be lewd in behaviour, with female aswangs often exposing their genitals to contrast values of traditional modesty.
