It has been awhile since I’ve posted any of my artworks and anything creative I’ve been doing so I’d like to put a round up of my favourite small scale projects on the side since November. Love is always in the air (mind you, love is always the smell of new art materials) around my university, with the 3 art supplies store, bargains are always waiting.
Here is the threesome product of my LSS on the songs There Goes The Fear by Doves and Indak by Up Dharma Down together with my over usage of Pei Pa Koa, a very effective and famous cough reliever for the sake of reclaiming voices, fresh from the streets of Chinatown in Binondo. Also, these were inspired by the collages and info graphics I’ve seen over at Scout Magazine and through my active feed via follows at Instagram.
Literally living up the “Cut and Paste” concept from one of the pages of Scout Magazine. I love colour play and reusing overexposed and bad shots of instax films. (One of the reasons why I’d like to get the pricey Instax Share *grins*). And since the holidays always call for creative (and cost-cutting) ways to wrap gifts, magazine ads and extras have always been my saviour.
So much fear has been conquered this year. I want to see life in the better light. Yes, it is the word, that we all live to avoid. There goes the fear again...
Pei Pa Koa residue combined with a piece of Strathmore paper (a bundle for 120 pesos with 40 pieces of card stock for water-colour, yes, a steal!). I’d like to work on more infographics (Yes, still on my traditional phase) x introspection pieces. They’re actually more of the sketch/doodle type, for quick, expressive pieces during hell week at school or work.
Indak by Up Dharma Down just brings tears to my eyes. I don’t know why, but I felt the song is quite sincere, sticking to its message. One of the songs that have been lulling me to sleep lately.
Theology poster I’ve worked on for a night. I rarely cram artworks but this one came great contrary to what I expected of the output. The theme is River of Life taken from the Book of Revelations in the Bible.
Eyes peering through keyholes…
This one was made for the mood board for our Showcase of New Talents’ twin bill production for Teatro Tomasino, entitled, Threshold: Where two worlds meet, held last December 5, 2014, where I was also part of the cast as Valet, for No Exit by Jean Paul-Sartre, with the tandem of New Yorker in Tondo by Marcelino Agana Jr. And of course it doesn’t end there, we asked the question “Who would be the last person you want to be in…hell?”
(Do not fret, I still haven’t gotten over my flowers x abstract portrait phase, but yeah, I still don’t know whether its a good things or a bad thing, haha)
One of my greatest acquisitions (gifts I gave to myself) is the Daykeeper by Kat San Juan. I’m getting back on track on my casual journaling and scrapbooking. It feels great to write down thoughts again.
Working on some lettering love as well. I do not usually make formal ones, but I am making one for the sake of trying. I’m just testing the waters.
Most of all, I’m very excited to work on more DIYs and series over the weekend. I just wish the inspiration and drive I would need to finish everything before the break ends will come. Hopefully, I can come up with another set of postcards to be launched here on my blog. And finally, a form for online orders (e-mails are too tedious).
I’m finally opening my doors for commissions!

‘Til the next!
Enrich your soul, keep inspired!
