Finally, the by-products of my creative mind have a haven. My arts will still reside on DeviantArt, Flickr, and YouTube though, but this time everything will be spiced up when immersed into my website.
My blog was made possible by a good friend, Conrad Miguel “Mikko” Gozalo, the geekest geek in the Linux and Open Source world.
Why Project ISKO?
Of course choosing a good name for my blog was a bit difficult. First, it should suffice whatever content I post. Next, it should represent me as the author and the artist.
On a piece of paper, I wrote this site’s aims to elucidate what really I want to convey.
- To blog thru art
- To showcase communities’ culture, especially Pampanga’s
- To see art in every walks of life may it be in politics, academics, and travel
I asked Kuya Winston if he had any idea. He suggested “Artista Ako.” After several considerations, I set a dry run of a revised blog named “Artista.” Afterwards, I asked Aethen if he had something in mind, and he thought of “ArtISKO.” It’s a clipping of “Artisa Ako,” not to mention ISKO means iskolar ng bayan, which I am.
One night, before I went asleep, I stared at the ceiling and thought so deep and bum! Project ISKO was conceptualized.
A Small Orange
Project ISKO at JohnCarl.net is proudly hosted at A Small Orange (ASO) on a Medium Plan. Mikko told me how quick their support is. Not only that, unlike other hosting companies, I find ASO’s servers very fast.

Currently, there is only one series lauched: MnemoArt. Under this category, I post my artworks prior to the birth of Project ISKO. These may include childhood caricatures, drawings, paintings, high school projects, and loose creations.
Next month, the following will be launched. 03: Artist of the month, Sketching…, Photoshop Tuts, and Mr. Snapshot.
If you notice, I moved my blog posts from Multiply. They may not be part of my aims, but for the sake of memory, I want to keep them. Personal blogging helped me so much.
Now I move on to a bigger project.
