Dropped off my giveaway loot yesterday for @commonroomph's 3rd birthday! From paper to paints to pencils to posts-its!! (Morning coffee not included) Excited to see what different hands can do to the same things. I thought I was living the marie-kondo-sa-condo lyf well, pero magaling lang pala ako magsegregate ng art materials into boxes 😂 Y does everything colorful spark joy? #CommonRoomPHCelebrates
🇯🇵 in #fauxfilm Barely have any photos in my phone except for artsy places because I wanted to try documenting with real film this time. I finished up a roll already and excited to have them printed when we get back. Also, I can't feel my legs na 😂
Because a little rebellion every now and then can be a good thing. Happy Independence Day! Reference photo from one of my IG muses for portraits, @double3xposure
Things I've been obsessed with lately: Color Eno pencils, scanning paper, pressed flowers, my bed, and Jeong Sewoon's 'If You' 💫 (Been trying to upload this with audio since 9am, but IG keeps crashing on me, I give up)
Faux Film: Museums. Been feeling off lately and am never satisfied with anything I do. Lowkey wishing to teleport back to happy places like these and take in all the inspiration I can. Maybe it's just the weather, but this too shall pass.
Fact: I hate drawing bodies because I suck at anatomy. That's why I almost always just draw portraits. This is me trying to swerve out of my comfort zone because in one way or another, you'd have to do so to grow. - (I love seeing how clothes fold though even if I can't portray them well! Also, #tb to high school me wanting to study fashion design after making 50 costumes for the class for Intramurals 😂)
Faux film: #FinallyCommonRoomPHxRockwell Still gawking over the fact that the past week is over. @commonroomph's new branch in @powerplantmall is now open! 💕 Come through at level R2 (hehe rhyming kbye)
Faux film: illo edition. I woke up pretty early today to draw, and god did I miss making collages.
Faux film series bec I’m back to editing and printing my long overdue photobooks. Can we fast forward to the second half of the year when I get to leave again please?
What do you want to be when you grow up? ✨ I don't know. I want to go on adventures I think -- not get stuck in one place. ✨ Same, Suzy Bishop. SAME.
Thankful for early mornings when I get to write and actually be home when the sun's up. 🌞☕ I love aesthetic coffee shops but my messy bed is still my favorite workspace. Been updating my 4 notebooks (life-work-ideas-art) for a quarter round up since 5am and m happy giddy as I write down Q2-3 plans. Even more excited because #FinallyCommonRoomPHxRockwell is a part of it! @commonroomph keeps me creating (and sane throughout the 8-5 monotony lol) and I haven't expressed it enough kaya naman nobela yung journal entry ko kanina. 📝✨ This is late, but 2018 Q2, let's do this! And singit #artvsartist because I also plan to ~ahrt~ more again. Hi, I'm Louise, and I draw whatever while watching kdramas and wanna one. I like writing down lists and LOL-ing as I try to make 'em happen. #Summeriswhatyoumakeofit
It's my first summer as an entrepreneur, allbeit small. And tho the coming months are considered lean months, I'm not in any way sad. Having to juggle the creative work with 2 actual jobs, I'm actually glad and thankful for a little break on the personal biz. After the 8-5 is spent browsing through Pinterest boards for personal projects, online art classes, drawing whatever, fanart, and sometimes 😴😂. My experimental art differs every night, but they all make me happy, and somehow, helps me learn a little something more about the process and with myself. I just love how non-overthought art works better than ☕ in refueling the energy lost. Pang-ready sa last quarter hustle. #summeriswhatyoumakeofit #CommonRoomPH
Story time. Throwback to stress free days when I can still marvel at sky. I spent the wee hours of today editing photos while streaming @wannaone.official's new album. So good mood ako like I can't explain how happy I can be even when I lack sleep pag it's something u love that you're doing + duh I'm listening to my sons. Pero plot twist si universe. I spilled coffee on myself before heading to work (should've taken that as a sign) and got into a car accident na rin kasi the world loves me so much talaga. Like happy birthday bitch! So I spent my bday talking to the police and insurance and I hate growing old. Thank you to all those who greeted me tho, and sent me #2park GIFs. Best gift are GIFs lol. Looking at the bright side, the rest of me being 23 def would be better than today 💕
I almost always bring a huge bag, mostly because I just like to throw everything I have inside, but also I want the extra space if I ever buy anything along the way *coughs i love groceries lol domesticated tita coughs* I try to skip the paper bag whenever I can, one for the 🌏, but let’s be honest, I’m OC and hate unnecessary home waste. @commonroomph’s upcycling drive starts this weekend! We’re using just old bags for packaging for the next month and you can help by donating your own pile of paper bags!! You can also BYOB when you shop! Small steps together, yes? #Summeriswhatyoumakeofit #CommonRoomPH
Whipped up new stickers just in time for @stickerconmnl 2018! Products of late night movies as productivity background noise and ofc, microwavable popcorn 🍿🎞 . Catch me and lots of artists (i can already feel my hoard tendencies) tomorrow at Bayanihan Center, Pasig City. I'll be at ✨Booth 40✨ with @marie_lama and ate @ella_lama!! . comment edit: I have no consistent art style smh #stickerconmnl2018
Sketches of random faces from IG/Pinterest, aka I forced myself to draw a face a night last week and I still can't draw hands. (Spot #2park)
