Pic-to-Comic with the Samsung Galaxy Note

Pic-to-Comic-ed version of me by Kajo Baldisimo for Samsung Galaxy Note

Pic-to-Comic version of me by Kajo Baldisimo for Samsung Galaxy Note. Thank you!

So, Samsung Philippines collaborated with Pinoy comic book artists for their Pic-to-Comic promo. I came across this last week and submitted a photo just for kicks. With the volume of submissions, I didn’t think I would be picked. This afternoon, I saw my face, no make that my sketch on their social media sites. Isn’t it the coolest thing, the accuracy and details of it all? The sketch somewhat shows my “intense” side with the accent color (or at least that’s what two wise people told me upon talking to me for the first time, separate encounters at that. I still haven’t figured out if that is a good or bad thing).

Before you buy your next gadget, think of when and where you are gonna use it, and if are willing to bear the weight (for some devices) when traveling. More importantly, which of your devices would you bring while in a long-haul flight? So the PSP can be used to play games but it is also an excellent device to watch movies. Oh wait, I can do that on an iPad too! And I can Draw Something… But wait, my Android phone is smaller but I also want to listen to my entire CD collection, which is on my iPod. Okay, I’ll bring the music player instead but it doesn’t take nice photos… You get my drift.
