wind and water

A peek of something I finished while waiting for the floodwater to get out of our house last night.

Crazy weather we’ve been having! I am happy to report that our ref is now already standing in an upright position on dry ground, and the house and our street are flood-free already. Thank you for all the warm messages yesterday! I hope everyone’s okay and safe now, also.

Manila International Book Fair 2014


The Manila International Book Fair starts today! Drop by the SMX Convention Center today until Sunday, Sept 21.

(My awesome publisher Adarna House is giving away tickets to download and print…for free! Right here!)


The National Book Development Board also has talks lined up for the duration of the book fair.

And here are Adarna House book signing schedules! I will be at the book fair on Sept. 21, Sunday, at 1PM at the Adarna House booth for signing.



Bring all your favorite children and get them off their iPads and get them some books! :)

See you there!

Where You’re Planted

Something I made during Ang INK’s super fun Fabriano Art Day last month. Prestige Papers is bringing in Fabriano Fine Art Papers soon, and they got INK to test the different kinds of paper. This one is on Artistico Traditional White, Grana Fina, in glorious 640gsm. I tried to test as many materials as I can: watercolor, gouache, pencils, and printmaking ink.

Fabriano’s Fine Art lines include paper for watercolor, drawing, printmaking, and acrylic and oil. These will be available locally in about 3-4 months, according to Prestige Papers, their distributor.
