Hi. I have been self-taught all my life. I post my unfinished sketches, finished personal works, amateur bad poetry, some snippets of my professional work, and music from my friends from the Cebu indie scene. I am a children's book illustrator by day, dramatic improv actress / bad poet / time traveler / master couch potato by night. I bare to you my heart, my soul and all that is passionate of me. Please handle it with care.
It is unethical for me, in practice, to reveal my personal life from my art. Yes, I draw my friends and I draw with my friends, but there is only very little to know about me in my drawings except my fondness for Greek mythology.
However, this year, my boyfriend and I will be celebrating the 7th anniversary of our relationship. So I decided to dedicate the week into drawing him. Okay, I really want to explain myself that I DO NOT normally do any drawings of him. Mostly because of the fact that I feel inadequate as an artist to capture him as a person. As he was my former drawing teacher (mentor) in college, I also feel that I have not yet become the artist he and I expects me to be. Although he insists I have come a long way when I was 16 when we first met, I still think I am not very good.
