Miriam College and First Academy Hold a Digital Arts Fair
If you want to talk about Digital Arts, the best thing to do would be to ask the experts. That's exactly what our longtime partner, Miriam College, did for their first Digital Arts Fair held last February 7. First Academy helped out Miriam's Applied Arts, Humanities and Foreign Language Department chair, Dr. Lourdes K. Samson, as she organized this very successful event.

Digital Art: Unleash Your Inner Creativity
I have been always drawn to digital art. It started with 2d and 3d characters on the games I played and eventually moved on with adoptables and pet site art. I still spend a lot of time browsing through finished digital artworks in DA and wonder how people can do them. I spend some time each week trying to learn more about the tools of my trade which consists of Photoshop and Paint Tool SAI. I still feel that I need to learn more and I am considering applying in a digital art school once my budget allows me to.
Inspirational Talk by Tony DeZuniga
For any hardcore comic geek and illustration fan, Tony DeZuniga's name brings chills. He has worked on Marvel characters such as Conan the Barbarian, the X-Men and Thor. He is the co-creator of the long-running DC Comics series Jonah Hex and Black Orchid. He is also a Filipino, and a pioneer artist who helped Filipino talent to become recognized in the US in the 1970s.
Manila Design Week 2010
Big Top Media Productions and First Academy of Computer arts collaborate for the video launch of Up Dharma Down, SinosiKat and Greyhoundz at Manila Design week's Manila Sound Vision held at Cubao Expo.
NU 107 Jock Off Awards
Greyhoundz's "In Subtitles" was essentially a twisted take on love and double-take. The team took its cue from the angry feel of the song, coupled with singer Reg Rubio's in-song insistence to "Read Between the Lines." The result is a dark noir-ish story on authority figures and a seemingly-innocent harbinger of doom.
