I got featured yesterday (September 14, 2012) on YOUNG Star Philippines as one of Manila’s Best Illustrators of 2012. *my mom took the photo of the print that came out back in the Philippines. Thanks Mom!
It’s been a great honor to be called on by Raymond Ang and Ralph Mendoza from YOUNG Star Philippines for this amazing feature that collected so many talents that I truly admired. Imagine my great joy when I got the chance to meet Tokwa Penaflorida, Soleil Ignacio, Steph Manuel, and Tof Zapanta in person as well when I got to the shoot (so sorry that I couldn’t keep my fangirl on check). Likewise featured are KitKat Pecson, Deane Miguel and Reese Lansangan. I just love how all of our portraits came out!
Great thanks are also due to Gabby Cantero photographed a beauty in me that I never realized I had; and who can ever forget Mollie E. del Rosario who was so pleasant and understanding when she applied my make up.
For the curious, here are the base drawings I was working on for my portrait.
Catching up on life: I’m back at SCAD Hong Kong. I’m incredibly dead busy at the moment but I just felt it so necessary to do this. THANK YOU. A large resounding THANK YOU to everyone who has been so supportive and believed in what I did. And for those who have recently discovered me, thank you for seeing the beauty in what I do. For those who have been there since the beginning, thank you for believing in the beauty that I can do.
Coming up, some previews of my first week in Hong Kong and previews for my work that will be at the Bloom Arts Festival back home which I am yet to finish. But hey! Get excited for the biggest art event of the year. 70+ artists are collaborating in one massive show at Cubao X this coming September 29. Will blog more about these things once time permits next week. Again, much love and appreciation for your support :)
