Reminiscing College

with 42 Comments

It’s been a while since I last visited DLS-CSB. I sat down at the famous Plaza V–think Boracay beach or other beaches that has huts. I sat on one of the huts and started reminiscing for a bit the good old times as a student when we were still doing our thesis in this very spot, telling stories and secrets and meeting new people. I pull out my Derwent hardbound sketchbook and my Sakura Pigma Micron 3.0 Pen and started … Read More

Drawing Inspiration

with 20 Comments

This quick sketch (in watercolor) was done during the external audit for ISO20K. I am working under the Quality Services Team. The external auditor from BSI (British Standards Institution) is from New Delhi India but he said he is currently residing in Singapore as part of his work. I admire him very much because of his intelligence, humor and stories. We learned a lot from him during his two-day stay. Whenever I look at him I can’t help but hope that … Read More

The Butterfly Effect is a wonderful inspiration by Trudi Sissons who stumbled upon a project called The Butterfly Project hosted by The Holocaust Museum Houston in Texas, USA. The Butterfly Project mandate is to remember the 1,500,000 innocent children who perished as a result of the Holocaust by collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies.

A Card for a Cause

Ever since Harmony Thoughts started last April 2011 it has been a huge blessing to me in so many ways–giving a bit of inspiration to others and in their creative endeavors as well as fulfilling my creative dreams.

I have always wanted to … Read More

Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

I created a rough drawing of a girl waiting outside the train station. I was waiting for someone while making this sketch. The colors are done digitally using PhotoShop. If you observe the drawing you can see either two things: (1) There are imperfections all around this sketch, or (2) The colors and the “imperfections” depict creativity and echo a certain personality of the artist. If you think about it I have the choice of improving my drawing such as … Read More

The Tone in Colors

with 54 Comments

I fancy architecture. I draw this piece from the cover of my watercolor pencil case. I am studying tone in colors and thought I could apply the concept in this drawing. I color this with Derwent watercolor pencils. You can see how the light and shade (tone) are created on where the sun and shadow hits the different parts of the structure. To make a tone darker, I learn to add black + the original color varying the intensity with the … Read More

Make Time for You and Art

The above is a quick sketch of a dog inside a bag at a tea shop. I did not include the man who owns both because he is soon to leave. Since I have done it on a normal paper I cannot color it with watercolor so I photographed it instead and rendered the colors digitally. Then I added some snowflakes because that idea has been in my head for a while. I love how the dog fits inside the … Read More
