Feeling the Holiday Vibes

Unlike my past Christmases, I decided to decorate my work station with Christmas lights earlier this year. I also plan on buying a small Christmas tree for my desk, but I wonder if I even have space for it. Haha.

Today was a weirdly calm and productive sort of day. I was able to do some typography using watercolors and acrylics, and used a sketchbook which has been around for more than a year (but barely drawn on). That’s for another post though.

Christmas is only 38 days away, and I’m feeling it so much already!

Illustration Friday

Yeah, regardless of the title, this isn’t an official submission for this week’s Illustration Friday. Still haven’t gotten back to joining their weekly challenges though I hope it’ll be soon.

There’s a funny story to this artwork that I want to share with you guys. You see, I remember sketching this last 2012 on my sketchpad but never planned on finishing it. It was supposed to be a random teenage girl on the bed talking on the phone, but recovering it 2 years later made me want to change everything. It’s weird how you find old art and be able to finish sketches or improve finished art.

So there. Finished a few days before Halloween came. :)

Ciao!

Handy…and Pink!

Hello again!

Things have been extremely slow the past 2 days (due to a long weekend/holiday caused by the annual Teacher’s Retreat at the university), and the things I should be doing are (sadly) lost in the numerous priorities on the list I made. Seriously! With my “chores”, you’d think I’d be burning my eyebrows studying and doing homework. But no, my determination has a mind of its own, and it isn’t even showing itself. *Sigh.

Well, I did finally do something my mom told me to do, which was to take better care of my art stuff. Don’t get me wrong, I have two, extremely full cases on the shelf, but the ones I use often are either making a mess at my study table or swimming with one another in the outer pocket of my bag.

So, I bought this:

IT IS PINK. Yes, it sure as hell is. It’s one of the reasons I bought it. Oh, and did you notice the cute (though simple) graphic at the front? Adoorable! Here’s a better view:

Sooooo lovely! (Imagine stars in my eyes.) Hahaha. If you didn’t take the hint at the previous paragraph, I’m talking about my pens, pencils, and markers. Doing what I do best (i.e. look for cute but very handy things), I managed to find this at the department store at SM this evening.

Here’s how it looks inside:

I love the chocolate brown touch it has inside! Greatly compliments the tone of pink used as well. :)

Those pens are what I always use when I’m drawing lineart or sketches. I have a whole box of those type of pencils, a pack of sign pens my dad brought home from abroad, a fountain pen (far left), and two metallic markers my aunt brought from Germany. I’ve been digging traditional art lately, and I’m sure this new holder would make me want to do more art.

I feel so excited to draw again! ^_^

How about you? Where do you store/keep your most used creation materials?

Is it time yet?

Another drawing during MAth class! But hey, I passed with flying colors in the subject so… :D Haha.

Me – pouring out my boredom through drawing during the final 30 minutes or so before lunch break. Happens every time! Do you guys get bored too, whenever you know something is about to end? Do you perhaps lose interest in listening?

Or am I the only one? *gasp*
