I showed you the process of me drawing this like a week ago here? Remember?  Anyway, it’s already open for pre orders on Arttee Apparels’ website  and will be ready for shipment by end of this month.

You can read all about Arttee Apparels’ new collection on their blog and those going for Urbanscapes 2014 festival on this coming December will get to enjoy something from Arttee Apparels if you purchase one of their new designs now and present yourself wearing it at their booth during the festival. Go read all about it on their blog or check out their facebook page.

 

The guardian of the night

Oh no, I did not drew a Batman.  That’s my Dear Darling’s thing. Superheroes are his thing. I drew random things and this is  the most recent one so far. Like a-week-ago recent. The owl was hand drawn with pencil on paper and the splashes were done using Illustrator CS6. I named this one “Hoot” because I’m so bad with naming things (like this title for example….Guardian of the night? how lame is that?).

Anyway the printed version of the blue owl will be available on T-shirts at Arttee Apparels‘s store soon.

What’s Arttee Apparels? Oh that’s another story to tell. Keep a look out for it, OK?*winks*.

Like my short update? I thought I should let you know that I’m very much alive and very very very pregnant (Opps… that too is another story to be told for another day).

*wink*

Pretty Petals

Since I’m in the right mind and mood to blog, might as well I posted something here before the feeling pass on to other things like blog hop or streaming bunch of series online. And God knows when I’ll get back to posting anything good in here. Not that this will be amazing but hey…. I’m here, alive and kicking and I’m sharing something. All is good.

I am currently on my replacement leaves after 10 days of working nonstop. Yup. I was working through the last weekend and I dont usually like to take the replacement leaves immediately. I like to keep it for longer holidays because I like my days to be well planned, but I’m too knackered. So here I am at home and contemplating if I should go to Mom’s for a free meal or not.

And before I decide on anything, I’m sharing this. These were done with watercolor pencils and I’ve posted it before. I’ve finally scanned these and made a few enhancement digitally to brighten up the colors. So here are better, clearer pictures of my “Pretty Petals”. (Oh hey… something that’s finished. Good job, girl!) hehe Thanks.

Ok decided. I’m heading to Mom’s for the free lunch. I don’t know why I took too long to decide. It’s like the easiest decision y estoy siendo estúpido. Tsk tsk.

Bye, love.

Sketching it up to date

I splurged on watercolor pencils and I went crazy with it.image image image image image image imageimage imageimage image image

Turning pages.

I have been catching up with my reading. A lot of it. So far, I’ve finish reading “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” (I immediately watch the movie too right after reading the book and caught myself listening to the song Hero by The Wallflowers a lot), Life of Pi, Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson and currently reading Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. It’s part of my thirty before 30 list and while I’m in the mood of reading, why stop now?

Hence the very little time spent with pencil and papers. That and I am constantly on the move right now. Been packing in and out of my trusty leather brown suitcase for the past 2 weeks both for work and personal. But I did try to squeeze in some sketches whenever I get some time at the office or at home. Here are the “some” sketches.

No colors. Been planning to though. For the first 2. Planning of doing a sketch up with watercolor on a series of pin up girls. I drew them in a A2 sized 360gsm grained watercolor papers. Oh well. Every great thing starts with a plan, right? The last 2 were quick sketch ups at the office on A4 sized glitter card stock papers. Other than that, here is a peek of what my new project looks like. I’m transferring my doodles on sets of crockery with gold ink.

1 Set contains 6 of flat plates, smaller flat plates, half bowls and smaller bowls. All will be hand drawn with individual patterns.So no plates is the same. Now all I need to do is to bake these porcelains so the color stays.

I’ll be putting these babies out for auction later.

So till my next entry, I’m sending out millions of X’es and O’es your way. May you have a great day.

A Sketch A Day : Day 54

Been busting my ass to be good at this. I can now draw faces. Yupe quite confident with that area but not so much with  body proportions and movements. I know. I need to work on the patience and focus. Only then I’ll get it right.

A Sketch A Day : Day 53

Finally we’re back on track with the numbering. It has been day number 80 today (yeah I used the calculator) though and I only have 53 days worth of sketches (including this one). Which means I have a gap of another 27 sketches to do in order to keep up. Fuh!

Did something out of my comfort zone and I’m got impatient towards the end. So what’s next?
