What about some sketchbook tour?

I am really getting worse at keeping up with all these channels. But a sketchbook tour? That's an achievement isn't it? Enjoy the video. :)

Dear Diary

I've seriously started an art journal and diary last year which explains my absence from the world wide web. Thank God I am not a famous person so the internet does not break when I am gone. Though at some points in my life I felt that I was. :D

Staring at the digital screen for hours at work has made me want to use my dinosaur-aged laptop less at home. I feel that it takes forever for it to boot and the AC supply has to be forever connected to give it life. Imagining that before I even think about opening my email is dreadful enough. So the watercolor paints and colorful pens come to my rescue. Those thick unused journals I have hoarded also give me enough motivation to use at least one page a day.

I also think that not many people read blogs anymore these days. The attention span has shorten significantly which is unfortunate. I have been imagining a much simplier life where I would go out into my garden and pick flowers then paint them later. Ironically, I had wished for this highly-urbanized life when I was much younger. I think too much artificial light has had me seeking for more sun.

Writing in this blog is a dilemma in itself. Today, I had written in at least four pages in my softcover journals. I still dispise my handwriting but I am convinced it is because I don't like some of the papers at all. On another note, I wanted to start to feel like a real person in my instagram account. It seems I have presented myself as a heartless artist if there is such a thing. But I am really just a simple girl with a complex mind and tons of hobbies.

First Communion Invitation Card

My young cousins had their first communion and I could not refuse to create an invitation card for them. I've decided to go with my usual brush calligraphy and some pencil and watercolor illustrations. They have blue and pink candles for the event so I decided to match the colors on my artwork.

The Process
My original artworks were converted to digital images which I have processed in Photoshop. The hardest part is coming up with an idea. Images online may be used as inspiration. And like most things, original ideas always turn out to be the best.
