Interesting cover art from Vanessa Carlton’s latest album, “Rabbits on the Run”. The illustration on it caught my attention.
I’ve been doing some experimentation with Adobe Edge this past week since it’s preview release on Monday. I figure to have a break, and do some exercises with Adobe Illustrator. Hence, the above: “ill-ocano”.
The Ilocano or Ilokano people are the third largest Filipino ethnolinguistic group. Aside from being referred to as Ilocanos, from “i”-from, and “looc”-bay, they also refer to themselves as Samtoy, from the Ilocano phrase “sao mi ditoy”, meaning ‘our language here.’ The word “Ilocano” came from the word “Iloco” or “Yloco.“1
Yes, it looks like the spelling is off, but the explanation of why it is so and the exercise is right after the jump.
