Resurrectio by ArthurIglesias
'Akó ang Mulíng Pagkabuhay at ang Buhay.'
– Juan 11:25, Bagong Magandáng Balità Biblia

'I am the Resurrection and the Life.'
– John 11:25

Tried something new for this Easter Week. I always join the 'ng' (which is a single sound and letter or digraph in my native Tagalog) by making it a ligature and via the old practise of putting a tilde (like on the 'ñ') over both letters.
Philippine Flag for the Spratly Islands by ArthurIglesias
Philippine Flag for the Spratly Islands
Toyed around with the idea of a separate flag for the disputed Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. In the Philippines, these are known as the Kalayaan Islands, which the government claims as a municipality of Palawan.

The colours are taken from the government's official coordinates for the National Flag.

The Mer-lion from the Presidential Coat-of-Arms, which is a holdover of the Spanish colonial arms, represents the Philippines and its government, as do the three stars from the National Flag (representing Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao) that form a crest above its head, signifying sovereignty.

The ten stars represent the Philippines's territorial claims in the blue waters that the 
government calls the West Philippine Sea (excluding Scarborough Shoal to the northeast, which is subject to a separate claim). These are arranged in approximately the same configuration they are on a map.

The red border, as well as the Mer-lion's stance, each symbolises the blood and willingness the Nation is willing to shed to protect its territory.

(Merlion © original creator of the Presidential Arms graphic found on the Internet, based on the historical design by Galo B. Ocampo).


ArthurIglesias's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I've always loved drawing and sketching for the fun it, even as a child. I may be talkative but sometimes quiet things entice me. Somewhere in between those is decent conversation with people who share the same passions, or are passionate with what they like–preferably over a cup of tea and some cheesecake.
