Top Draw’s Francis “Kiko” Lerma in action

In a pre-event launch held at Top Draw Animation Theater at the PSE Center in Ortigas last Tuesday, media people were given the chance to learn the techniques of drawing Finn and Jake, one of the things that will be taught in the workshops. We were asked to draw, something I was hesitant to do, because I wasn’t gifted in this area, but I did it anyway because Kiko showed us how to do it the easy way.

My not-so-good attempt at drawing Finn and Jake

Kiko said, “We are really looking forward to meeting the students and teaching them about art. And with Cartoon Network’s huge fanbase in Manila, we’re sure to have a fun time drawing the zany characters at the Adventure Time Art Fair.”

There will also be different art booths during the art fair where kids can create their own Adventure Time character from the series’ magical Land of Ooo. Workshop participants will also be given a mini-manual containing the step-by-step process of drawing cFinn and Jake and some exclusive items from Cartoon Network and Adventure Time.

We’d like to thank all the schools that have agreed to participate in the event, and for allowing us to help supplement the curriculum with a big dose of fun.”

Of course, the Adventure Time Art Fair will not be complete without Finn and Jake. This unstoppable duo will also be there to join in the fun. Plus, watch out for surprise games and contests with corresponding prizes from Cartoon Network.

Our young man finally got his wish to have his first pair of Nike shoes. This was actually the reward he got from his Dad for doing well in in Grade 3. He was Top 3 of his batch (bronze medalist) and was awarded two more subject medals for Math and Science during the LSGH Undergraduate Ceremonies held recently.

His Dad helped him choose the Nike pair that’s right for him. This Nike Lunarglide 6 (GS) was his final choice. We bought it at the Nike Park at Bonifacio High Street a week before the opening of classes.

He wears his Nike shoes on Mondays during their FMAC assembly and on Wednesdays when they have their P.E. class. When I asked him what he likes about his Nike Lunarglide 6 (GS), he said he likes the color and style and the fact that it’s lightweight and highly flexible.
