Sweet September: MIBF

Sweet September: MIBF

September has been pretty eventful! Sucks that I haven’t been updating as diligently as I’d hoped but let’s try and fix that. Starting now. Okay! 1. 34th Manila International Book Fair (Sept. 13 & 14, 2013) This was actually the first time I got to go to the book fair, and it was fun! The first day I attended the launch of Vibal’s the new Chikiting Books, which included Ang Bonggang Bonggang Batang Beki by Rhandee …

The guy assigned to …

Personally I’ll be using this day as an excuse to add to my picture …

Ice Cream Sunday

Ice Cream Sunday

Last Sunday we went to SM MOA to watch the ADMU-DLSU game (huhu we lost) and I finally got to visit the kiosk artwork I worked on for Merry Moo Ice Cream! They mostly joined weekend markets before and this was their first mall location, so I was really excited to work with them. The painting took place last April for about a week I think(?) at night after I got home from my day job. …

Everything Plus the Kitchen Sink

Last Saturday was the opening of Ang INK’s 1st annual exhibit for 2013, A Curious Buffet. The show’s up at Post gallery in Cubao X, Quezon City.

(Check out Cha’s blog here and Iori’s blog here) I didn’t get a proper picture of my finished piece (just go see it in person at the gallery!) but here’s a sketch: The exhibit’s going …

Hello World

Hello World

So. I made a blog! I didn’t even bother changing the default post title because it was more than appropriate – hello indeed! The past year’s been pretty busy, work-wise, and I figured it’s about time I made and maintained a proper home for happy news and WIPs and such. Lots of exciting things coming, stay tuned! WordPress is quite new to me (I’ve only ever designed for it) so I’m lucky I’ve got my …
