Hello! I am part of this fundraising drive. As we all know there are a lot of areas in the Visayas region that were badly hit by Typhoon Haiyan and because of this the people from the children’s lit industry came up with an idea to stage an event that would celebrate children’s lit, plus generate funds for the victims of the typhoon. This is also for you to get to meet your fave illustrators and authors. Not bad, huh? :)

I will sell 3 of my artworks from the books, “Rizaldy” and “Masaya Ako!”
Hey look, dental floss! :P
Here’s a map to the place
Do drop by! :)
Twine! Lots and lots of them.
Still working on these gifts. I have exactly 3 weeks to get them done before I deliver them so that’s go, go, go for me.
Magnets and Badges to go
Decided to use materials that are budget-wise yet effective. The only challenge for this was I needed to use these materials in a way that when combined, the over all look will not look too “homemade.” Hope it worked.
Unfortunately, I won’t accept further orders because of the little time left for production. Hope ya understand. :)
New stuff I made for the coming art fairs. Please do drop by this coming friday and sat, aside from our usual wares, we will sell some of our merch together with stuff made by our friends in benefit of the Typhoon Yolanda victims. All proceeds will be donated to the Philippine Red Cross.
Also! Speculiars member Fran Alvarez came up with a blog and she’s compiling a list of local artists / art groups who are holding fund drives. Visit artforhaiyan.tumblr.com.
Our group, Speculiars will be around this month; do drop by and say hello. :D
See you tomorrow!
On the 15th! See you at The Collective!
The last one was postponed so we’ll be at Mercato on the 16th.
Anyone knows where I can purchase a durable yet lightweight folding table? The ones sold in malls are way too heavy (Seriously, they could at least added some wheels to make things easier) and it’s pretty hard to find those street peddlers who sell foldable wooden tables. Where are they when you need them?
Working on something that has to do with these 2. Still in revision phase and I’m thinking, I might as well scrap this.
Oh well, we’ll see.
Hah. Almost done. It took me ages to reach the last part of this project. All I need to do is push myself more to make that possible. Speaking of 10A Alabama, you may also drop by during the arts and craft fair to give donations for the survivors of Typhoon Yolanda (International Name: Haiyan). Stay warm and dry. Take care!
Artwork I made for “Manimalaman” Zine for Ang-INK.
A portmanteau of man + animal + halaman (plant). By combining the three, we were able to come up with unique creatures.
As seen here, the creature Vanus, commonly found in the urban jungle is in the process of self-destruction. It is important in their life cycle to commit such act. Such creature thrives on other people’s praises in order to survive.
The title of the artwork was taken from the latin word, “vanus” meaning “empty, without substance.” This latin word serves as an origin for the word, “vain.” (www.oxforddictionaries.com)
New set of brooches made from Apoxie Sculpt.
New set of handmade pins for an upcoming bazaar. September was an awesome month. I will blog about it soon. My blog to-do-list is getting longer, I better start working on the posts when sched clears up. Whew.
Do drop by this coming October 12 at the Artesania Arts and Crafts fair at BGC.
