In a few days, it’ll be Christmas! I’m a bit panicky since I haven’t shopped for presents yet, but I’m thinking of ways to use my existing materials for making handmade gifts this year. Any suggestions?
I’m happy to report though, that I haven’t abandoned my #create365 challenge on instagram. Yay!
Here are some things I’ve been making:
A quick Frida sketch using watercolor (no pencil drawing because I am stubborn and impulsive and sleepy):
A washi fashion collage with chinese ink:
I drew CJ De Silva’s cat, Tomas:
I’ve been practicing calligraphy and brush pen lettering too–and I still have a lot of other stuff I want to play with/use. I’m happy my day job ends at the office, which gives me some time to pursue things I really, really love. 🙂
Last night, I drew some fashion-y figures on my fashionary notebook (generously donated by Allie–thanks so much!:)).
It was my first time to color these with watercolor pencils, and I loved the precise lines they generate and the messy bleeding washes as well.
These are inspired by the ice cream combo ube and cheese:
These are inspired by gemstones and origami:
Happy Sunday! 🙂
I’ve been drawing on this black sheet that Nayna found from Divi. I like the surprise colors I get when I begin scratching the surface. I recently was able to buy Vogue Paris for dirt-cheap from Booksale and I’m using it as reference:
I also tried to write a fave poem in it:
The mag also inspired me to make quick fashion sketches, prada-inspired:
I splurged on a chinese brush you can fill with water, and with the leftover ink, made a quick sketch of a rocky cliff with the sea:
I couldn’t get the amazing fashion illustrations with dresses made of flowers by @grace_ciao from instagram out of my mind, so I decided to try and make some too!
I used the wilted, fallen blooms from a bouquet given to my mom, fallen gumamela flowers from our hospital visit to my tita, and during lunch today, I picked up some fallen petals from the fire tree at the park near our office.
Made some fashion illustrations using the fallen blooms, I think I’ve got a new obsession!
Happy weekend! What have you been up to lately? 🙂
Since I can’t have a cat of my own because of my asthma and house restrictions, I’ve opted to wear stuff that are cat-themed instead.
