Illustration Commission and Blog

These are some illustrations I did last November. It’s for a book revolving around a puppy. I haven’t seen the actual book yet. But I am pretty sure It will turn out great. All these were done digitally using Photoshop and SAI. I quite enjoyed working on these.

Short Blog:
Today, I am going to draw commissions. I haven’t drawn much last weekend because of the Graphika Manila 2016. I really enjoyed listening to the talks, they are all inspiring. I would love to attend again next year.

Commission Illustration and GM Day 1

Helen Family
Helen Family

This is an illustration I did last November for Helen. Here’s what she said: “Can you create an illustration to represent a busy mom that is pregnant with three kids, she is a super-mom (so dress her in a type of superhero outfit) but at times life is hectic. She should be holding the baby and her other two children should be by her side, perhaps one clinging on to her leg and one pulling at her arm. This cartoon needs to show her beauty and resemble her as well as the children, but it should be fun with some humor showing supermom within a chaotic life! This should also be colorful.
I need text within the illustration to read “Mommyhood Survival Guide”
The illustration needs to include:
1. Helen (the pregnaznt supermom)
2. Oldest son – Jeffery
3. Youngest son – River
4. Baby girl – Betsy
This image is being used as an icon for social media. It will need to fit within a square shape to display as facebook profile picture. FB’s specs image is at least 180px by 180px. It’s displayed at 160px by 160px. Twitter needs Profile pic to be 400 x 400 px.

I do want to have the image in a larger format to utilize for other things and to print with a high resolution not just for social media.”

Graphika Manila Day 1

Day 1 was a blast, It was my firt time attending such an event and I feel like I wanted to attend yearly. The speakers are very talented and have diverse works and so young! I’m excited to attend day 2 today.

Graphika Manila is today, I am excited to attend since it’s my first time. I am going alone but I have some friends going there too. I’d like to meet new artist friends there, just like what happened in the 3DSense workshop.
