Featured Artist: Illustrator & Animator Kenny Tai

I've been wanting to continue featuring artists on this blog but this time, through a video.   Still in the spirit of sharing what makes me happy like how this blog started, I was really hoping that I can share with you the people who inspire me to create. 🙂 I first...

Letters & Colors Iloilo

Two things I wished for this year that I thought were so far from happening: (a) be able to hold workshops in different parts of the Philippines 🇵🇭 (b) participate in an outreach program, specifically the one wherein I get to actually be the one to teach. I'm writing...

Make Your Schoolyear a Colorful One!

This lay-out of all green school supplies takes me back to my college years. 🙂  My stuff then was mostly this color.  I also remember how I would cut out letters from my favorite magazine to decorate my own notebook.  Come to think of it, when I was in grades 4-6, a...

My 10 Favorite Talks, Speeches & Interviews

Get ready to be inspired! 🙂 *Okay, that may have been too big of a promise.  Haha.* I've been wanting to do a compilation of my favorite talks, speeches and interviews of all time. When I work on my projects, so many thoughts fill my head and I have to battle with...

SM Stationery Art Fest 2017

Design Dept & Team Manila Studio Tour

I've been wondering why I'm into making videos lately.  Then, I realized that our blog, my supposed side project of so many years has now become my full-time work.  So, in the spirit of story-telling that started this all, I am back to being constantly looking out for...

Summer Art Buffet with Watercolour Pencils

I promised to stop myself from opening my blog posts with a comment about how time just flies!  😀 It's been a couple of weeks since the Summer Art Buffet, one of the events I was just really grateful to have been invited to teach. Yep, that's how it looked like after...

Art in the Park 2017

I was supposed to start working already today then I realized, "Wait! I must blog about this!" I'm still on a high from yesterday's Art in the Park event.  I've been waiting for the day that I could create a vlog about it, but yesterday afternoon, my lizard brain as...

Have a Summer to Remember with Rustan’s

One of my first few jobs after graduating was in Sales, Marketing and Trade Marketing.  As much as it probably means supermarket or mall hopping on the outside or driving all day, it also meant doing things such as: 1. visiting supermarkets via the back door entrance...

Hey Kessy: The Place that Washi Tape Built

The date was January 31 in 2012 & I wrote this online shop an e-mail that said: Hello! 🙂 I really love your tapes. I'm just wondering though if you still have blue diagonal lines (instead of horizontal lines) as a tape and if the white polka dots against blue are...
