✨NEW STUFF✨ . It’s been a while since I’ve made new button pin designs - my old ones are more than a year old. 🙈 While I can force myself to draw and make, my mood plays a big role on how I get things done. So say hi to my mood pins! 🤗 Mood swings are welcome here. They’re now available in all @commonroomph branches! PS: There’s an ongoing mid-year sale in Common Room! Got to let go of old stuff to make room for the new, lowkey #pressure. :)))
I have my usual playlist on shuffle as I pack pins the. whole. day. Posting old drawings here because I badly want to draw more songs. ♫ (May hiwalay na kong sawi playlist and boyband hits na nakaline-up lol). Factory mode work is still work but I’m happy the idle time gives space to (over)think 😅 and brew new things. #idrawmyplaylist
#idrawmyplaylist: Tatay Hits edition Someone noticed last week that my work playlist had a lot of tatay songs and natawa ako because TRUE. I am at that point in life na hindi ko na alam yung mga tumutugtog sa 99.5 😂
The one where I draw songs from my drawing playlist 🎶 #idrawmyplaylist
Busan in film. I thought I wanted to write after ate @maanagsalud's “Caption This” workshop for @makespacetoday yesterday, but got stuck staring at a blank screen for most of last night. 😅 So instead, I drew on some photos and wrote on those. Still managed to write a few words (or just really word vomit) and posted a film photo diary from Busan. Link in bio. At ang init sa Pilipinas, I miss cold weather!!
A late thank you to everyone who said hi, bought stuff, and generally just came to @stickerconmnl last weekend!! I had very few new stickers but you still gave them some love huhu 💖 ang bagal ko kasi gumawa lol. Nwayz, I have more WIPs na di umabot ng con & I’m excited to work on those, esp the 🇵🇭 version of the landscapes polaroids!! These transparent ones though will be in @commonroomph soon! 👀 Thank you thank you again, yun lang talaga, I’ll go back to fake werqin on commissions now, masyado nanaman akong nagenjoy magcollage.

After x years of this being neglected in my to-do list: finally redesigned my website! 💻 Pero nag-enjoy lang talaga ako gumawa ng maraming graphics bec ~extra~. There's still a few bugs but I have no more brain cells to code so hayaan ko nalang sila. Link in bio. @commonroomph's webshop will also be relaunching soon! 👀 New merch by other artists will be there!! 💖
Keep close what fills your heart with light! This little illo is inspired by so many things: my love for travel, the stars 💫, horoscopes, trusting the universe, an escape, finding balance ☯, and lowkey Woojin’s line in IPU Propose ver. 🙈 . Drew this early last year but it took me a while before I had them made. This pin is a visual reminder to keep chasing the light, day & night, and know that someday, you too will shine! 💖 . Will be bringing this next week in @commonroomph stores!
Write more 2019 starter pack. ✎ This year so far from both my paper and digital journals.
Dreams are better when you’re awake 🌈 (aka things I say to myself kasi gising pa rin ako at 3 am)
🎵 I ain't got nowhere to go 🎵 . So I gave myself a day off — ang kapal ng mukha ko sa gitna ng holiday rush di ba? But hun, if you need a break, take a break. Today I cleaned the condo, went to the bank, reprinted stickers, bought myself coffee, drew this, wrapped gifts, and watched a lot of Wanna One and Netflix. It was still productive when I think about it. Taking it slow isn’t the same as stopping. Also, background is a film photo from Busan!! I stopped myself from booking a sale flight back - achievement unlocked. #idrawmyplaylist
While I wait for my film rolls, here’s my 🇰🇷 trip in faux film. . /TLDR journal excerpt ahead/ Last week was just amazing! I wouldn’t say this trip was life changing, but you know how you find left behind cash at the pocket of your jeans or in the corner of your purse - it felt just like that. I may have re-learned a few things about myself that have long been forgotten. Like I like watching what people do in their daily commute. I like iced coffee even if it means freezing my hands. I like waking up early and being the first one up in the room because I hate sharing a bathroom. I like being asked by strangers. I don’t like asking strangers. I like looking at maps. I love the beach! I like sitting down to write things like this -- and mental note to do it more often. And tbh, everyone rn is just trying to be somewhere or be somebody that we forget about where and who we already are. Always running, never caught up. We don’t realize that we already get to do things we like or have long wanted to do - be it mundane or big steps. I initially planned this trip to list down things I wanted to do and learn in 2019, but instead, I listed down things I liked and am thankful for this year. Things that are easily missed and forgotten. /Wew. Ang sipag mo if you read my long-ass mema speech. Sorry, napaaga yung year-end drama ni lola./ . Note to self: I hope that while you are “becoming”, you don’t forget to see how far you’ve come.
Snippets from an old Korea photobook I printed earlier this year. Was checking out this trip because I still don’t have an itinerary. Anyway, I can’t wait to be back to the land of my many oppas 😂 Recommend new places in Seoul & Busan? Full photobook link in my bio (my last post was February 🙈) I’m uploading the Japan film set right now too pero mabagal ang net.
🎵 I’d like to tell you things that I think you never heard, but there are no words 🎵 I’ve been making a lot of playlists again lately and made a postcard out of it. Dedicated sa lahat ng ginawan ko ng mixtape pag may crush ako, lol #TATBILB x Nick & Norah’s. 💛 I don’t like drawing backgrounds and this was supposed to force me to try. Small steps. Also, the guy lowkey looks like Minhyun heh I swear, di ko sinadya. Swipe for a hs feels mix and process vid.
