The static of your arms, it is the catalyst You’re a chemical that burns there’s nothing like this It’s the purest element and it’s so volatile An equation heaven sent, a drug for angels (Florence + The Machine, Strangeness and Charm)


Volatile Mixed media / 7� x 8� / march 2014

Sketched and lined traditionally on blank MUJI paper in A4. Manipulated and coloured digitally on Photoshop. I started this last year, but I only had time to scan and color it earlier this year. I was trying to grow out of my phase of drawing girls and flowers, but failed.


Strident Mixed media / 210MM X 297MM / NOVEMBER 2013

Sketched and lined traditionally on blank MUJI paper in A4. Manipulated and coloured digitally on Photoshop. I submitted this to Heights. It didn’t get in.


But there is really nothing, nothing we can do. Love must be forgotten. Life can always start up anew. MGMT, Time To Pretend


I make all that I believe I set myself free So take all the time you need And let yourself be Metric, Artificial Nocturne


Transpire Mixed media / 10.5” x 11” / NOVEMBER 2013 Sketched and lined traditionally on blank MUJI paper in A4. Manipulated and coloured digitally on Photoshop. I submitted this to Heights. It didn’t get in.


Dark Again

Mixed media / 210MM X 297MM / JULY 2013 Sketched and lined, and painted (with watercolour and acrylic paints) traditionally on blank MUJI paper in A4. Manipulated and textured digitally on Photoshop. Abortion was mentioned in my Lit13 class one day. Ma’am asked the class to show any personal art or written works that could depict the idea of it. I wasn’t really prepared, but I had this on my iPad. So I showed it off. #shamelessplugging I was actually thinking of the red string of fate in Japanese culture, though.


We’ve been living with the lights out Been moving in the night Keep swimming through the white wash We’re losing sight. Gold Fields, Dark Again


Two feet standing on a principle Two hands longing for each others warmth Cold smoke seeping out of colder throats Darkness falling, leaves nowhere to go Daughter, Still


Di/chotomy traditional art / 210mm x 297mm / NOVEMBER 2013 Sketched and lined traditionally on blank MUJI paper in A4. Coloured with black ink using a bunch of different black markers, because I kept running out. Something different.


Fixed

Mixed media / 210mm x 297mm / may 2013 Sketched and lined traditionally on blank MUJI paper in A4. Manipulated and coloured digitally on Photoshop. Birds, bat-like butterflies, and flowers. I was a bit lost.


You, you hold my heart You, you won’t let up after I am caught, touch turns into fisticuffs it’s all in your head, wonder if I’m fixed to cut. Stars, Fixed


Two feet standing on a principle Two hands longing for each others warmth Cold smoke seeping out of colder throats Darkness falling, leaves nowhere to go Daughter, Still


De L’autre Côté mixed media / 210mm x 297mm / may 2013 Sketched and lined traditionally on blank MUJI paper in A4. Manipulated and coloured digitally on Photoshop. I was still a bit lost here. I was playing with the concept of death.

painted using Photoshop.

Trees fascinated me. I used this as practice for digital painting. I also remember making this so that I could have more works on my portfolio for a scholarship grant in the School of Design and Arts in De La Salle College of St. Benilde.

“People think dreams aren’t real just because they aren’t made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.” Neil Gaiman, The Sandman

Wall

Digital art / 8.5� x 11� / February 2013 Digitally painted using Photoshop. I was trying new things with regards to my painting style. I also wanted to make something more meaningful.


Untitled I Photography / 4” x 4” / January 2014 Taken with a Diana F+. Experimented with double exposure and a color gel. Lomography is fun.


Secrets I have held in my heart Are harder to hide than I thought Maybe I just wanna be yours Arctic Monkeys, I Wanna Be Yours


I’m not sure if I should show you what I’ve found Has it gone for good? Or is it coming back around? Isn’t it hard to make up your mind? When you’re losing and your fuse is fireside Arctic Monkeys, Fireside

Tea with T Photography, Editorial design / 8.5” x 11” / april 2014 Shot with a Nikon D5300 (without a tripod!) on self-timer. Coloured and edited on Photoshop. This was part of a homework for a basic Fine Arts - Information Design class. It was fun, but really tiring. I’m pleased with the results! The colours are great (they’re my favourite).


And I heard your voice As clear as day And you told me I should concentrate It was all so strange And so surreal That a ghost should be so practical Florence + The Machine, Only If For A Night
