    Illustration Friday: Edge

      When I saw the week’s Illustration Friday prompt, this scenario immediately came to mind and I just had to draw up a quick doodle. It’s based from a compilation of hilarious and supposedly true Filipino beauty pageant answers I read years ago. English is widely spoken in the Philippines, but with over 150 local dialects (and accents), it still gets misheard, mispronounced, and misinterpreted quite often 😀 Check out some other hilarious, laugh-out-loud beauty pageant answers here! (note: some of it is written in a mix of English and Filipino)

    Illustration Friday: Lost

    San Francisco, May 2012. It was my first time to really be alone while traveling. I was in San Francisco the month before, but only for a couple of days and with friends. Now I was back for some unfinished business and I didn’t bother contacting my friends in the city since it was a short and quick weekday visit. Sometimes I draw myself as a cat. Meow. Now I don’t mind traveling alone and in some ways, I prefer being alone so I can do anything I want without having to consider the other person’s needs/wants (ha, I’m selfish). Fun! What’s NOT fun, though, is getting lost alone. But…

    Illustration Friday: Suspend

    It seems I only post Illustration Friday drawings if I happen to have work that fits the week’s topic. I know that’s not how it’s supposed to work, b-b-but… *incoherent mumbling* This week’s topic is Suspend. I worked on this image recently:   This reminds me of someone I know who told me about her ex-boyfriend’s reason for breaking up with her. “I think he wanted to be an astronaut,” she said. “He said he needed space.”

    I’m baaaaaacccckk!

      Sorry for the long absence on this blog, but I’m back from my 2-month US trip! I like to lie low for a few days after a trip and keep it a secret from people (even friends, heehee) that I’m back in the country already (some people don’t even know I left, thanks to my stealth Facebook filters 😛 I’m a secretive Scorpio like that). I like having a few days to myself to recover from jet lag, unwind, and settle back into a routine. New posts to come soon! Glad to be back home in the third world 🙂

    Illustration Friday: Fluid (and visual puns)

    For this week’s Illustration Friday (which I need to make a habit!), I thought this illustration I happened to be working on was a fit for the week’s topic, which is fluid. It’s part of an ongoing set of visual pun illustrations, inspired by a pin I saw on Pinterest (are you on Pinterest? Find me there 😉 )   Watchuteenk? Any other suggestions? 🙂

    Illustration Friday: Messenger

    In an effort to get back to Illustration Friday, I am shamelessly re-posting an old drawing as it’s a fit for this week’s topic, Messenger. I drew this a year ago on Odosketch, a simple, online drawing app with limited, muted colors and no undo function.   Throwing in an unrelated, just-finished drawing also made on Odosketch. It’s a drunk cat! No particular reason for the drawing but I did just buy a couple of bottles of San Mig Light just waiting to be opened (which I will get to after I post this) 😀   The interesting thing about Odosketch is that you can replay your drawing stroke by…
