Oh man, it's been so long since I've actually drawn something. I feel like I've forgotten how to draw! Feel free to laugh at this one though. I obviously don't draw animals very well. Haha! This is based on a rather interesting conversation I just had with my sister about imagining our dog in a beret and a French-themed outfit. Alas, here is the finished product. I personally am not a fan of dressing up dogs in real life...but illustrating them? Love it!

I also feel bad because I haven't been blogging lately. Yet, I'm just 4 followers away from 100! Thank you all for supporting Spaceship to Infinity and bearing with my extreme awkwardness. You all are amazing! *cyber hugs for you all*

These past few weeks have been very very busy for me. Just yesterday, I completed my classroom sessions for scuba diving! I absolutely can't wait for my checkout dive and to get certified. Hopefully, I'll get certified before my beach trip for this summer.

Also, I finally am a proud owner of a Minolta XG-E. Last Sunday, my family and I had an unplanned trip to Hidalgo, Quiapo, which is known for selling cameras: digital and film. We were able to get ourselves a deal with a Minolta, which came with 3 lenses! My sister and I decided to name it Kodie. Can't wait to have our first roll of film developed! 

So that's it on my end for now. Again, thank you so much for continuing to read this blog! It really means a lot!

The Truth About Artists

photo source

As I was doing my annual art bloghopping spree, I came across this comic which instantly made me scream "Yes!" I could relate to everything it says. Sometimes I find myself wide awake with ideas swimming around in my brain. I also find myself doubting a finished work I've done. Art materials are everything in the world to me. I get too preoccupied with an artwork that sometimes I forget to eat. I have this fear of getting bored, so I try my very best to be productive every second of the day.

How about you guys? Do you have these unusual art-induced habits too? If you do, welcome to the club.

P.S. I know I haven't been posting in a while, but do not fret! I am currently working on a new drawing post for you guys to enjoy!

13 Reasons

I'd like to write about a very dear friend of mine, Isabel. I met her last year, at Camp Dream, and we've been the best of friends ever since! But today, I'd like to make a very special post about this wonderful girl and 13 reasons why she's the best ever!

  1. She understands my language, and by that I mean my fangirl language. We both mostly like the same things which makes our friendship 10x awesomer!
  2. Whenever I'm feeling down, Bel knows how to get me back up on my feet! She's always there for me when I need her the most.
  3. We have the best duo name ever: Isabrielle
  4. We're both the chatterboxes in our barkada. {Barkada is the Filipino term for a close group of friends}
  5. She's like a sister to me.
  6. She's very supportive of me as I am very supportive of her. 
  7. Bel's always full of fun and is always game for anything! 
  8. She's one of my closest friends from CISV.
  9. She doesn't make me feel left out when talking about school.
  10. She introduced me to Pitch Perfect which eventually has given us an ambition to be acapella singers.
  11. She accepts for who I am.
  12. {This is my favorite part of our friendship} We started talking because of One Direction. Hahaha!
  13. She turns thirteen today!
Happy happy birthday to you, Isabel! Thank you for all those memories we've had together! I'm really glad I've met you. Here's to more memories! Happy 13th! God bless!

Cover: On My Own

Okay, so this is the first time I'm ever posting a cover of mine on this blog......and I'm pretty hesitant about it. Enjoy?  {Also, yes, I still have the Les Mis fever. And my mom has been requesting this from me for a while now, so I thought I might as well share it here.}


Here's a little sneak peak at what I've been interested in lately: watercolor typography!

I've always loved reading quotes. They're one of the things that inspire me the most with art, especially those of Walt Disney. There's something very motivating about his words. 

I was feeling rather paint-y {yes, I do have terms for these moods} yesterday, and since I was having the day off from school, I decided to bring out my watercolors and test out my typography skills. It was fun getting to do something else with those paints. I even tried to paint the alphabet in Helvetica! {Ha ha ha} Definitely one of my new "in things" for this month!

What do you guys think?

The result of playing around with brushes and all. Planning to make this my header, but the loser me can't figure out the correct proportions for it to be fixed. In the mean time, opinions please? Would love to get some feedback!
