My thank yous to the organizers of Legends of Sugarlandia, you have shown the world that the artists and performers of the city of San Carlos must be recognized.

The artists in action.

The Other Side of Tragedy

Nothing is permanent in this world except change itself. This is a phrase almost all of us have said once or many times in their lives. It is a quote that has been plastered in our brains like "Honesty is the best Policy" or "better late than never" nd the list goes on and on.
These are words that guide us, challenge is, and make us understand life better so the road to whereever we are heading to is easier to follow...

It is our eight after the first bodupainting in 2001. We, the organizers of only three people, have wanted the bodypainting to grow with the 2000 millenia but 2007 wasn't a lucky year for us. This year, we are trying very hard to keep the fire burning, the fire that ignited the passion of many San carlos artists, gave hope to the younger ones who want to become artists.
It is always a hard trek for us to keep the bodypainting running on its feet because of the main concern of budget. We have to ask for more private individuals to support us because they are the ones who keep the art of bodypainting alive. The City Government of San Carlos have been a huge help in presenting the Bodypainting for six years(2001-2006) and we owe them our existence.
Last year's ENGKANTADO was a success but the road to the end was a very strenuous one (frankly, it was my first time to play lotto hoping to get the money and add what the whole budget lacked) but inspite of the very hard time, as artists, we sighed and smiled and said "we did it!".
This year, we again want to make it. To all San Carlosanons, we ask for your support to keep the bodypainting alive because this is an art medium that we can call our own. Bodypainting celebrates the art of our ancestors of Negros, it celebrates the new era of the PINTAFLORES and it celebrates the beauty of the minds of the artists.
We fervently hope that you and your organizations can help us in our endeavors and help create one page of our history.

A week from now, VIAJERRO will be lauching the new summer 2009 collection and with it comes a new face and a new personality that will portray the identity of VIAJERRO which is one that stays low yet fulfilling its goals in life without abusing the goodness of others. After almost three years of existence Viajerro has become a name that us synonymous to adventure and never fearing to become a trailblazer.
The new image model is Joshua Navarro, a shy yet adventurous individual who never is afraid to try newer horizons but always tries to test the waters before diving. After the first pictorials, Joshua has learned and is never afraid of the camera anymore. This is the new Viajerro persona.
