I was doubtful of my cools and warms. I muted the subject. The foreground and middle ground are noisy.

Toodles X Florals is a project that I made last 2017 when I was coping with my bipolar weathered emotions dealing with heartbreak.

Toodles. Doodles that look like noodles.

Toodles are swirls that I got addicted with. It’s a graphite tonal range training. That’s another talk. I’ll feature my Strathmore journal next week. 

I later on fell in love with colors. Faces were forever a joy.  It paved way to self discovery, an instant f*ck boys immunity, and a priceless learning season.

“Rise” I was observing how colors moved. I tried Holbein, Winsor and Newton Cotman’s, Shin Han, and Life After Breakfast Handmade Watercolors in one piece. I have seen how each pigments reacted to each other to build one workable piece.

What Eggs Do You Like? 
Remember that Runaway Bride Julia Roberts scene when she made a lot of egg dishes to find out what she really wanted? The metaphor is the same as picking what you are most passionate about. Experiment on materials. This is the season of give-no-f*cks. Enroll in classes that expand your horizons.

Black and White 

Learn from the darkest darks and lightest lights. Above all find the light in everything that you do. Identify the cool and warm tones. Push every time you make your work.

I forgot what I titled you but I can feel how happy I was when I made this.

Have A Role Model

Why not be an apprentice for someone who is so damn good at what they do? Motivational Life Coach Les Brown recommends to align yourself with people who can empower you. If you go with a bunch of losers you’ll unconsciously acquire their habits. You don’t want that deary. 

Immortalize your self at a certain period in time. Don’t wait for another tomorrow for your yesterday. Make your now.

Let’s warm up our toes. 

Get back to work.

Sh*t Happens

Major major careers have grown and flopped with #MissInternational2017

Past 12 hours awake, I got tied with the colors instead of the quote. Sleepy to the core,  I made a beautiful hot mess. 

I left “u”. Epic.

I remember the film Pursuit of Happyness with a Y.  It felt like a crown that I never had. I have even uploaded this to my Facebook feed for hours. A friend noticed. He was the only one who caught me. Indeed it triggered people to STAY CURIOUS

Adulting is hard. Laugh harder.

Yes, I have wasted a block. I forgive my self. Lettering is expression. It’s a challenge on how I can view and reshape things. 

These dumbfounded moments are our passes to creativity. We should never felt shameful about it. Fuel that sh*t to pump you further. 

#Relatable stuff? What’s yours?

A Letter To The Goal-Getter Self

Dear child,

You’re beautifully imperfect. 

Yes, you are. 

You will never say that to your self because you’re thoughts are faster than your walking. 

Slow down. 

Breathe in every move. Feel your heart beating.

You felt that your decades away from where you should be. Don’t be. 

Time is your best friend.

Time that you don’t need to spend on carefully curating your social media feed.

Clouds
“Clouds” in Acryllic.

If you’re gonna die today you don’t want to spend this day feasting on someone else’s life. 

Every destination has different paths, carve your own in this Earth. You’ll get there. 

You don’t have it figured out yet you keep on going.

The Art of Moving On

Eyes Scream
When it rains, indulge.

Snooze you lose yet you do. An hour passed, you can’t even lift a finger till you see it is really time to get up. You grab yesterday’s socks. The floor sort of aired it. Wearing whatever is left in your closet, you tied your hair up and go.

One eight o’clock stormy morning, a leftie was born in the Manila suburbia. guess that’s how my name was from Ara means rain, Sacha means warrior.

Clueless. Life is more exciting when you don’t have it figured out. Right?

Life’s a fight. I kept on toiling on and off with the arts, just like you drifting in life mindlessly. Yes, you. Our encounters may be just a stolen glance from a local gallery, a one night of dabbling on paint and wine, or a short-lived personal project -started, but never ended.
