This is a peice of work I produced by drawing the large star onto a blue carboard background with pastel pencil and white marker pen. I then cut out the silhouettes of the people and the hills. Finally I scanned it into photoshop, added the other stars and tidied it up quite a bit.”

LOOK: Mara Lopez poses nude on Playboy cover

MANILA – Mara Lopez, the daughter of beauty queen-turned-actress Maria Isabel Lopez, continues her streak of daring outings, this time as the cover girl of the latest issue of Playboy Philippines.

The 23-year-old actress appears completely nude in a bathtub on the cover of the May-June issue of the men’s magazine, which also marks Playboy’s sixth anniversary in the country.

Mara, who is also a professional surfer, started acting when she was only 9. At the time, she was a cast member of ABS-CBN’s “Ang TV Kids 2.” She went on to join Star Magic Batch 13 four years later.

Only recently did Mara get recognized for her acting, however, when she won Best Actress at the 2012 Cinema One Originals film festival for her role in Ato Bautista’s “Palitan.”

Her portrayal of a wife forced to perform sexual acts in front of a camera also proved to be controversial, as it had her do scenes with frontal nudity.

Similarly, in 2013, Mara bared skin in another independent film, Alvin Yapan’s “Debosyon” co-starring Paulo Avelino. The film competed in the New Breed section of that year’s Cinemalaya.

mara: "there's more into it than meets the eye?" haha. the answer: PASSION FOR ACTING.

ABS-CBN AIRS NONITO “THE FILIPINO FLASH” DONAIRE’S FEATHERWEIGHT TITLE MATCH IN FEATHERWEIGHT FURY
 
Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire Jr. will showcase an improved and more focused version of himself as ABS-CBN airs the special telecast of Top Rank Promotion’s “Featherweight Fury” event held in Cotai Arena at The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel on Sunday (June 1) at 10:15 AM.
Donaire (32-2) will challenge World Boxing Association (WBA) featherweight champion Simpiwe “V12” Vetyeka (26-2) to co-headline three featherweight title fights in the return of Top Rank to Macao.

Not only is Donaire physically ready after going back to his roots, inviting his father who introduced him to boxing as his new trainer, his loss to Guillermo Rigondeaux and close fight against Vic Darchinyan has given him renewed purpose as a boxer.
“The second fight with Darchinyan made me realize that I wanted to be here,” said the 31-year-old Filipino in a recently held press conference. “With injuries in my body and injuries on my face, I still realized that I want to do this. This is what I want to do. I live for the joy of people watching me and that’s why I want to be here. I want to give everything that I’ve got for my fans and for my country and for the people that love boxing.”
