WHAT IS PETRIFIED DESIGNS?
Well, this is the business I started while I was a college student in 2005. It was first called "Petrified Heart" (Ahhh... the emo days), I've been doing Flash full sites, logo design and sticker design for bands at that time. Then I changed it again to "Petrified Art", this is where I started to expand and improve my designing techniques and genre, And lastly I changed it again to "Petrified Designs".

ABOUT ME
I just love to collect some toys, do some artwork and graphic designs. My action figures serve as models for some of my character's poses. I also use these figures to practice my photography skills. I do graphic designing, photography and artwork commissions for a living. It's a slow business, but I plan to gradually increase my reputation using the power of the internet and yes, also the social media so that I can get more clients (I don't like social media sites that much btw). In my business point of view, I want to give people quality designs, photo manipulations and character artwork commissions. Oh yeah! I don't bite so feel free to talk to me about anything :D

Other than my home business, I also have an actual job that is just the same as my home business but it's boring because of the lack of freedom.

AS A BLOGGER...
I started blogging when MySpace added a blog (journal) feature on profiles. My blog entries back then are personal and random posts full of nonsense. Then I moved to Multiply. I posted a few game and stuff reviews (just like here on Blogger) there but the site died. I managed to retrieve some of my blog posts there 'till they shut down.

I blog so that I can express my opinion on stuff. So what the heck am I blogging about? Like I said earlier, I blog anything random that I've encountered. I blog and share anything that comes to my mind, I blog my concept/finished artworks, graphic designs and photo manipulations and I blog to review stuff like toys, video games (HCF) and rarely, tech and geeky gadgets.

When it comes to reviewing stuff, I always try not to be biased as much as possible. I will review items fairly like so that there will be no fanboy stuff and trolling.

AVERAGE TOY COLLECTOR
I collect mainly Square-Enix toys (Play Arts, Trading Arts) and not aiming to collect them all, just figures from Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts and other titles that I personally like, or figures that looks cool.

I wanted to try other brands, someday I'll buy some selected NECAs, Figmas, Revoltechs, Bandai D-arts figures (and other toys that piqued my interest) :D

A LITTLE SOMETHING AND A WARNING
I mostly take and use my own photos and I make and use my own artwork, graphic designs, audio and video. I credit the person/company that owns any media that I use. Other stuff I use and didn't own are used fairly. Any resemblance or similarities to my characters, photo and my other works to other people's work is purely coincidental. Using and/or copying any of my works and blog posts without my permission is called PLAGIARISM. It's bad and punishable by law, meaning it's a CRIME. So please, don't do it.

Happy Reading! :D
