This blog is still alive, yes! I’ve expected December to be super busy, but not THIS busy. I’m keeping track on things at Instagram though.
Made stuff like t-shirts and moving scale models for our office Xmas party. It’s my local Lantern Parade tradition (aka stating up really, really late at work).
Made some prints and the wall for My Apt., Heima’s new store for men with taste. Even with the limited time they gave me do these, I enjoyed working on these! Follow them in Instagram @thisismyapt. Blog entry soon!
I attended the Lantern Parade yesterday! It was still super fun even though I didn’t see a lot of friends, and the floats this year are awesome.
In notebooks news, I’ve just delivered the last batch for Xmas. Jessica Zafra also featured my notebooks in her blog (with my batchmate AJ’s and Noel’s hilarious comics series, Crime Fighting Call Center Agents) after I attended her book swap. It still feels surreal to be featured, though.
Wait, what? It’s halfway through December? But there’s so much to do!!! Aaaagh!
Hello guys! I have been busy to sit down and blog but I do get to post on tumblr and Instagram, because it’s an instant gratification thing. So let me make up for it by posting stuff with my phone!
I got myself a really affordable smart phone, and I’ve been using it lately because it’s pretty convenient (Google apps are great!) even though the camera’s not so good. All of our cameras have broken down and are under repair, so I got to rely on this cam, and although I’m really not satisfied with the photos, it got me posting in Instagram quite a bit. So, to the updates:
Super secret Heima project! Heima’s new stuff this fall will be so great, can’t wait for the release! (Reposted from @heimastore, of course.)
So happy to do more, proper layout when we get our camera back.
Made a Saul Bass-inspired poster for Person of Interest just because I saw the SDCC poster and it makes me giggle and point at how, uh, mind-boggling it is.
Also, WHO’S LISTENING TO WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE? Guys, it’s ridiculously good, and it makes me doodle things.
I got featured and interviewed in Mabuhay DIY! Mabuhay DIY is super crafter Drea’s blog, which chronicles her arts and crafts journey. I wish I can make time and craft religiously like her. Thank you so much Drea! <3
There are so much stuff to do this month and I hope I can blog more about it!
Wooh! Talk about busy! I have been doing things for work that I almost forgot my resolution to write more. So I’m here to recap at what had been happening this month – and it’s pretty much haphazard this month so I hope I would still sound comprehensible.
I rarely watch movies in the cinemas, and I try avoiding watching 3D movies (headaches for inflated prices), but when I saw the trailer for Scorsese’s Hugo, I told myself that I should watch it.
Have you seen that scene at the end of Cinema Paradiso when the lead character couldn’t handle his emotions while he played the roll of film? I was pretty much like that when I saw Hugo. It is a love letter to films, and it was so beautiful. I haven’t seen anything like it in Scorsese’s movies, but there’s the same passion running into it.
Or maybe because I am a movie geek and I salute George Melies’ giving birth to fantasy movies and paving way for most of my favorite directors and movies (shoutout to Terry Gilliam, forever). Or maybe because I’m a big fan of the setting – Paris in the 1930’s. Or maybe because they graciously gave a shoutout to Louise Brooks, one of my favorite actresses EVER. I have so much reasons to love this movie that I didn’t really mind the 3D glasses constantly slipping down my nose. Sabi nga sa Tumblr, so many feels.
My Sherlock poster earned almost 1,500+ notes in Tumblr, and I wasn’t even done with the series! I will work on John again because I’m still hesitant about his pose, and I’m torn about including Mycroft and Irene Adler in this series… but here are the nearly finished Molly Hooper and Inspector Lestrade WIPs.
Because people in the office were going to Japan, I asked them to send me these:
A Pentel Brush Pen (3), which costs 3X in Deovir the last time I checked. I want a more free-flowing drawing style so I’d be practicing with this in the meantime.
A DIY GAKKEN film TLR camera (4)! Don’t you love it when you assemble stuff? Haven’t found 35mm film around this town (what) so I’m still excited to test it!
It’s been an interesting month for me, and I’m happy that I’m keeping things together in this new environment:
As in real life.
