Icons of a typical workday

Inspired by a skillshare project from the noun project, I made handdrawn icons describing a typical workday:
Instagram, tea, a bit of exercise, art before breakfast, check the time, I might be late, make more art if there’s more time, read a bit if there’s time, walk, buy coconut juice, walk, wait for the light to be green, underpass, walk, admire the flowers, stairs, powder my sweaty self, toast my bread for my second breakfast, work, listen to music, sneak artmaking during lunch break 🙂

My first pen meet!

I was able to join the 3rd pen meet Manila last Saturday at Project Pie, and it was one of the funnest events I’ve attended. I didn’t know what to expect, since it was my first but I loved the energy and super enjoyed the time I spent with everyone–mostly friends from instagram and the local arts/crafts scene 🙂

I’m planning on joining the next one! Thanks, Sienne of inkcatcher for organizing this fun event! 🙂

I went to BGC after for the art mart and bought the following:

Teach What You Know Pampanga

I ticked off another item in my bucket list: Teach what I know in a workshop setting!

We commuted from Manila to Pampanga (some hijinks involving more than four hours of waiting in line for a bus ticket and for the actual bus to arrive ensued, but that’s another story) and arrived late because of it, oops-sorry! But we still got to make it and teach others what I know about fashion illustration.

One of my first “students” haha, Cora, a friend since college.

Group pic! Was happy I was still able to make it and share what I love with new and old friends. Thanks to Kat and Katha magazine for this photo!

Falling in love with brush calligraphy

image

I think I’m more in love with brush calligraphy than pointed pen calligraphy because I like it messy. Treated myself to a zig no. 22 brush from my recent Japan trip and I now get why a lot of people are crazy about this brush. The flex and control you get is amazing. 🙂

In other news, I treated myself to a leuchtturm 1917 notebook because I’ve bee caressing this one each time I see it. I believe the “free engraving” was the perfect excuse for me to splurge, and so I got one. No regrets!!

I’ve always wanted to experience having a thing of mine engraved. 🙂
