Hi Kat! Sorry for the late response.

Anyway, I don't use a lot of trad media, but for markers the good ones are Kurecolor, Copic, and Sharpie. Kinda expensive though. More or less P100 for 1 pen.

I haven't tried a lot of colored pencil brands though. I don't like Faber Castell's eh.

Oh wow! Thanks for the reply! Didn’t think you’d get to answer haha

Oh okay, got it! It’s too bad Kurecolor and Copic are so expensive :( Time to save! haha

Really?? I’ve used Faber Castell since forever! :P

Neutrals and Brights

My new favorite thing in my closet right now is this khaki tulip skirt I got in Hong Kong! I love its high-waist fit on me and its shape. I know it’s not a new thing around the fashion world but never have I loved a tulip-skirt as I do with this one (I used to look so bulky in them).

But more importantly, I have found how fun neutrals are! It’s obvious I’ve always been drawn to very bright colors as seen from my art to my wardrobe but now, I’ve embraced the subtler side to hues. Pairing the khaki with my bright red nails and bright red shoes, as well as my big ring, I formed a date-worthy Sunday outfit! How awesome is that :)

Peacock ring from a bazaar - my favorite ring at this moment

What are your favorite fashion combinations? :)

Arts and Crafts101: How To Make A Party Hat

Last Friday, I felt my inner kid and did some arts and crafts for my little friend. His name’s Saur-e and he’s a stuffed dino I gave last year to someone special who somewhat influenced me to love stuffed toys! I know, it’s crazy but here’s to a renewed childhood! :P

Getting to know my inner child


Saur-e taking a look at himself


Tada!

Hi! I’m…


…Saur-e :) <3


Heehee… isn’t he just adorable? :)

Take a picture of your childhood’s favorite stuffed toy and post it! :)

Color blocking in dreams!
I had this crazy dream last night (as usual). I was being chased by something - dunno what - in this funky outfit! Orange short cropped top with Aladdin-like baggy cuffed pants. Also, I wonder how I ran with those purple pumps! :P 
Did this quick sketch on my little Corona Sketch pad by pencil and Photoshop brush.

I love how this hue is not RED red, but a light strawberry red tinge. Perfect for the summer! :) See Orly’s other colors!

In Awe

Just a few minutes ago, a good friend showed me works of an all-around artist (he can use almost any medium masterfully!!) and right now, I’m just blown away! This dude is INCREDIBLE and I think he’s just 22. His technique and meticulous detailing is just amazing; not to forget, the color usage! Amazing, amazing, amazing - that’s all I can say! 

I wish I could make artworks like these one day.

These are some of Minjae Lee's works (from his marker-as-medium collection):

What do you think of the works? :)

Supergirl Wannabe

It’s my 3rd day back from vacation and I still have this freakin’ cold from all the change of weather. My immune system sure lacks a lot of those what you call Vitamin C for a few degrees to hit me like this. I can’t even do my work properly with all the sniffling and nose blowing on endless amounts of tissue! Ugh. Someone save me…

But since nothing can be done any time soon, I’m taking a few minutes from thinking up of good mandatory designs (meaning, designs with a deadline and consequences if not done) and posting up a sudden thought about… well, colds.

Yes, you read right - COLDS.

When I was a little kid, I never had the tradition of drinking up chicken soup whenever I was sick. Never did my mom cook up something exceptionally special just for colds or cough or even the flu. All that my siblings and I were taught was just to drink a lot of fluids, take our medicine 3 times a day and continue working or doing whatever we had to do. Sickness wasn’t an acceptable excuse for our family to stop and take a break from our responsibilities, nor was it a reason for mediocre work.

At that time, I resented not having a good opportunity to skip school and snuggle up longer in bed. But in hindsight, I think my parents just really sent the message of being strong. It’s like, “Take good care of yourself while you do your thing” rather than “Oh, let it pass and continue doing it next time” ‘cause next time may be too late. (Of course, if it were a fatal condition we wouldn’t force it now, would we? Haha!) And I’m grateful how this was not only in terms of getting sick but in everything else we do. They never raised us kids to be weaklings, that’s for sure!

So, in lieu of the moment, here is a work that I really love by Joshua Middleton. Stumbled on it in his site (www.joshuamiddleton.com) a few months back - with influence from @speedingstill - and I fell in love with all his other works ever since! 

Presenting the kind of girl I want to be: invincible yet somewhat human through and through - Supergirl. :)

Thanks Mom and Dad! :)
