A message that departs from the main topic       
   About the site

Excursus is an English word derived from the Latin excursus, meaning "digression" or "a message that departs from the real topic." Something to help explain the fascination that keeps me at my self-appointed task. An online portfolio, if you will.

   About me

My name is jute from Cebu City, Philippines where I'm a graduate student by day; casual writer by night; and pseudo-artist on the side. I write prose mostly but occasionally indulge in poetry. Right now, I'm trying to figure out a writing style that I can be comfortable with on the long run. As for my art, I'm mostly self-teaching digital art with GIMP as my platform. I'm also flirting with an idea for a series of oil pastel paintings on hands as a subject as well as various ideas for a comic strip. One of these days, I'm going to buy myself an analog camera to learn the rudiments of photography. If you have any questions, suggestions, comments, or whatever, just contact me. I probably don't bite anyway.
