February Hand Lettering Postcards

I can't believe it's February already!  And of course I've got to greet everyone:

Happy Chinese New Year!
On to some other postcards:
White and Gold in Black Paper

I think it's my first time to post a non-colorful art?  In this case, the filter is just black and white. :)

DIY: Upcycled Tin Cans

Just a commercial break from all those comics, illustrations and hand lettering stuff I've been doing.  I'm currently in a non-creative mood OR maybe I'm IN a creative mood; just not with regards to all those stuff I've been doing for years.

So I just jumped into the washi tape bandwagon.  I know, washi tapes have been here for years so I'm late into the game.  But one of my New Year's resolution is to upcycle more so I got inspired to "prettify" those tin cans I have laying around my room.

Disclaimer: blurry, at the same time, overly-filtered camera photos ahead.

This can is cute but (1) this is Christmas-inspired and it isn't Christmas anymore and (2) I got tired of seeing "Swissmiss" in the cans-- I mean, I  DO have three of this!
Just bought these washi tapes from Miniso at Php118 (around USD 2.25) per ten tapes.  As this is the first time I've bought washi tapes, I have no idea if the quality is good or if it is a good buy.  But hey, these are cute tapes so why not?

And I just looped those washi tapes around the cans.

TADA!  The finished products:

I think I could have made the execution neater but I have to admit, I love all the colors!

I have a lot of little things in my room so at least the mess looks a bit pretty.

I hope everybody is having a good 2019 so far <3

The Mean Girl in Fairy Tales


My panels have always been vertical as I've always thought they will show better in the blog.  In the past, whenever I try to have it in a horizontal manner, the comics always surpass the blog margins!  Thankfully, I think this one turned out well.

Pygmalion's Sculpture


Pygmalion is a gifted woman-hater sculptor in the Roman Myths.  He eventually fell in love with Galatea, a sculpture he made.  In the end Venus, the Goddess of Love, made Galatea human and she and Pygmalion got married.

Happy 2019 everyone!
