Art Dump: August 2018

August being the "Buwan ng Wika" (or the National Language Month) here in the Philippines calls for another Filipino Faces Series so that is just what I did. I was thinking whose faces I would paint and we were on the second week of the month already when I realized that I still didn't have… Continue reading Art Dump: August 2018

Art Dump: July 2018

Hullo! Another month is coming to an end. We are already entering the month which is dreaded by most, August. I don't know why August got its reputation as the month na "taghirap". Do you guys know the reason behind it? Anyway, hello again! Haha. I have quite a lot of time now to make… Continue reading Art Dump: July 2018

Art Dump: June 2018

Hello magical human beings! June was, let's say, some kind of a blur. In between processing requirements for my new work and getting sick and finishing all my work here at the job I am about to leave, the month passed by real quick. It's a good thing that I was still able to squeeze… Continue reading Art Dump: June 2018

TFIOB

Have you ever read the book or watched the film based on the book called "Flipped"? It's one of those coming-of-age stories that I really love because it is quirky and light but very insightful. Anyway, there is this part in there that I love, the part when Juli was talking to her father and… Continue reading TFIOB

May Skies

The rainy season is starting to settle in and I am already starting to miss the gorgeous summer skies that the month of May had generously offered. Not just the sunsets. I also miss seeing Venus and Jupiter every night because it's too damn cloudy these past few days. I truly enjoyed watching the changing… Continue reading May Skies

Art Dump: May 2018

Hello everyone! What an awesome month! Weird but awesome. Really weird actually. But definitely awesome. And guess what? I made art! I am happy! I only made three portraits but that's an improvement compared to last month. I am slowly getting back on track and I am hoping that I will be able to make… Continue reading Art Dump: May 2018

Art Dump: March 2018

Oh March! From the start of the month, my brain haven't been really in the greatest state so naturally it affected my creative pursuits. I just wanted to walk around and space out and cry and sleep and just really wallow in the dark pit I am in. I have been writing a lot though.… Continue reading Art Dump: March 2018

Art Dump: February 2018

Okay. This is not much of an Art Dump because I haven't made that much art this month. Haha. I have a couple of unfinished artworks at home and I cannot make time to finish them just yet. Medyo layas kasi ako this February. Haha. Social Life = 1 Art Life = 0 It's proving… Continue reading Art Dump: February 2018

Watercolor Challenge (Part 1)

Hi! I have decided to join this month's World Watercolor Group Challenge. I was initially planning to join this year's Inktober but aside from not being really friendly with ink, I don't really have inkpens. Bummer! I was not sure if you guys would have appreciated me posting a different artwork here like EVERYDAY so I… Continue reading Watercolor Challenge (Part 1)

Life Saver Watch

It was July during the 1st birthday of our friend's baby (people my age are getting married and having children na wtf) when we saw this plain black watch our highschool friend was sporting and when we inquired about it, she told us that she got it from an FB page and she explained to… Continue reading Life Saver Watch

Art Dump: September 2017

Hello guys! My arm is okay already! But I had to work on a couple of commissions which took quite a lot of my time so I was still not able to make more art. Or maybe I'm just really lazy. I had to do a lot of studies (reading watercolor books, watching tutorials, reading… Continue reading Art Dump: September 2017

Architecture Illustrations (and how to find your own style in art)

Before I fully immersed myself with watercolor portraits, I also dabbled a little with doodles, handlettering, graphite portraits, anime drawings (chibi), and freehand architecture illustrations. Huhu! I miss doing those things. Recently though, because I haven't really painted and drawn a lot, I just lurked around art accounts that I love. And then I looked… Continue reading Architecture Illustrations (and how to find your own style in art)

My Parents’ Wedding Photos

In light of my parents 35th wedding anniversary today, I unearthed some precious photos from their wedding day. I couldn't stop laughing while looking at the photos. Haha. Almost everything is off-centered and some even defied the rule-of-thirds. But I love the photos nevertheless. It still served its purpose and that is to immortalize that… Continue reading My Parents’ Wedding Photos

Pastel and Fire

I used to say that I like sunrises more than sunsets. And it is because of my thinking that sunrise perfectly depicts my belief in new beginnings. That no matter how bad today is, no matter how dark everything seems to be, tomorrow will be another day. One of my favorite lines from a song… Continue reading Pastel and Fire
