Christmas Gift Ideas in Pastel Tones

It’s officially 43 days before Christmas! Where did the time go? It’s a bit of a shock to realize that we’ve pretty much consumed 2017 but we’re also thrilled because the holidays are always a treat. We get to bond with loved ones, eat sumptuous treats (a.k.a....

Ayala Malls Cloverleaf Mural

It's 11:33pm and I'm actually supposed to begin working on a new project due next week but I just can't seem to bring myself to do so until I've written all everything down about the past week.  I'm currently sitting down on our couch with thoughts brimming in my head...

How to Draw Dogs

Hello Guys! 🙂 How are you? I'm writing this blog from a wake park with a view of the sunset from the mountains. *Looks again.* *Oh great. The sun has disappeared. Woops!* I'm accompanying the hubby as he works. I did the drawings for these worksheets several weeks...

9 Books for Kids & Kids at Heart from the MIBF

I wasn't really planning to create a post about Manila International Book Fair (MIBF).  To boot, I didn't bring my camera as I usually would. I didn't have planned shots in my mind. I didn't brief my family that I will be covering the event. *Woops. Now you know what...

La Union Family Roadtrip

I've been debating with myself whether I should blog or not. After all, I've pretty much documented on video a good chunk of our roadtrip to La Union. 🙂 Then again, I realized, I have so many thoughts as usual that I can't express through moving pictures. 😀 I'm...

New Workshop Format: Live Sketching

Hello Guys! 🙂 I've been receiving requests for a follow-up workshop to the Watercolor Doodles workshop. If there's one thing I love drawing, that would be dancers.  I get amused when I draw them because they're a big part of my childhood. 😀 Drawing dancers or...

Art Materials: Fully Booked Store Tour

I remember more than a decade ago when we visited the Fully Booked building, I would hang out in the 4th floor because that's where all the design books were!  I just feel like I'm transported to a new place and my mind will start bursting with ideas as I flip through...

Downloadable Drawing Worksheets: How to Draw a Bunny

Toki Doki Philippines & Googly Gooeys on Pinterest & Vine!

Ayala Malls Christmas Paper Bags

Design Lessons You Can Apply to Your Life

Last February 1, Ponggo & I, together with my sister attended the Graphika Manila 2014 and each time, we always come home refreshed and inspired with all the new lessons that we've learned from designers.  Graphika Manila is a yearly design convention.  As much as...

Being Inspired Versus Copying

This was supposed to be my post the other day but Ponggo told me that it was too frank and that I'm just begging for unsolicited reactions.  This time, it's not even about my work.  Sure, I've seen so many headless Googly comics online (i.e. comics shared and...

Colorful Days with Pens & Notebooks

Hello Guys! Hm...So what have I been up to lately?  As I'm writing this, it's still Ponggo's birthday.  I've been very consistent with putting up a social networking ready birthday greeting but today, hormones just took over my life spending most days nursing the late...

The Design Process

Finally! I can come clean about this: The Design Processs.  I mean, I've been doing design commissions for almost a decade now and I've always wanted to write about all the ridiculous requests for revisions but I can't.  However, this year (until probably early next...

Of Wanderlust and the Big Blog Exchange 2014

I Think I am Tired

I Think I am Tired

When we're out of the country, Ponggo's the type who walks like a robot.  As it seems, he never gets tired especially when it's around 10 degrees or lower.  He'd be sweet enough to go with me to art supply shops & bookstores. He'd take me to colorful furniture...

The Thing With Power Banks…

I always forget to bring my power bank.  If I ever do, it's the one that I forgot to charge! I thought was the only one then I ran a Twitter survey and got these results: Apparently, there's a lot of us! *Whew!* Hehehe. I don't know why I do this to myself.  I'm also...
