I've always been urged by my friends and clients to have my own website, now that I've been building a name around the graphic design business particularly in logo, t-shirt and layout design; and ambigram creation. I am already maintaining personal weblog sites such as in Blogspot: Perelandran Chronicles and Multiply: Perelandran Frontier, an artwork gallery through revcruz@DeviantArt, and a photo repository in revcruz@Flickr and most of my clients (both local and international) are able to learn about my artwork and contact me for requests through these websites, if not from crowd-sourcing sites which I have built quite a respectable reputation (such as Worth1000.com). It all started as a hobby but this has somehow developed into an income-generating activity.
I am now developing a website which will serve as my portfolio featuring my designs, more prominently in logo design and ambigrams. This will serve as a venue for commission requests from potential clients both local and international. Hopefully, I will be able to integrate into the website my other creative ventures such as my font foundry (I have been creating various sets of custom-made fonts), stereogram creation and paper crafts among others. It will also host all of my creative blogs, so expect most of my art-related entries here to move out to their new home. In the future, it may serve as shop for future merchandise (featuring my T-shirt designs for example). It sounds so professional, it scares me honestly. I never thought that I could get this much out of my art.

With all the radical changes happening with me (By the way I am no longer a faculty member of the College of Allied Medical Professions, but will still be working as a lecturer/professor for the UP Manila Community Health and Development Program momentarily while my papers are being processed), this will just be one of the manifest investment of my many passions. Of course, I have a lot more to think about in terms of what I really want out of my life.
So look out for it, it will be up soon! Rev Creations at http://www.revcruz.com
