Hello! It’s been quite a long time since I last posted something here. I’ve been meaning to share with you guys some new stuff I’ve worked on for the last few months, but school always seems to get in the way -___- I’ve been terribly busy with my thesis and all sorts of other things lately, so I haven’t had the time to update. I really appreciate those who’ve been sending me messages, despite the scarcity of art posts. Huhuu. I promise to get back to your questions and messages once I get rid of all these schoolwork.
Anyway, just to break off the silence that has fallen into my blog these past 3 months, here’s a photo illustration that I made for Young Star. I was recently featured as one of Manila’s most talented Illustrators of 2012! Yay! *happytears* Feels so surreal to get published alongside other amazing illustrators! Just imagine how nervous I was when I finally got to see Soleil, Tokwa, and all the other featured artists in the flesh for the first time! asdfghjkl! I was seriously stunned, guys! It felt really weird because I only used to stalk these people online. The moment I saw them I was like, “Whoa! What the flip am I doing here?!” Hahaha! I barely talked to anyone in the room because I was too chicken to approach all of them. I swear, my heart was pounding the whole time I was in the studio. Good thing I was able to control my fangirl feelings. Haha!
I really had fun working on this! I was actually a bit surprised the photos came out this big.
For those who missed the paper last Friday, you could still check-out the article here.
Huge thanks to Sir Raymond Ang, Ralph Mendoza, Roxy Valencerina and to the whole Young Star team for making this all happen!
