I am Cj de Silva. Some might recognize me as the Promil Kid. I love to paint and illustrate. Advertising is not just a day job for me. Film, moving pictures and music are my escapes.

BLOGGED: 10 Gifts I Got As I Turned 25, + a new Eraserheads inspired wallpaper collection, FREE TO DOWNLOAD!

Since 2007, my birthday has been life lectures more than actual celebrations. I always attempt to drown it out with loud music and booze, but for some reason, life always manages to feed me its bitter (but very useful) pill, filled with substances that activate me to finally grow up.

But now, I discovered that strength also comes in the form of humility.
