From August 2nd to 6th, my colleague Freely Abrigo and I were thrilled to be part of Gamefest 2023 at Glorietta 2 Activity Center. We spent these days creating wonderful caricatures for the event attendees. Drawing for four hours daily was a new experience for us, and we were excited to connect with so many people. Witnessing the happiness on their faces as they received their custom cartoon portraits was truly heartwarming. On average, we managed to complete around 40 portraits each day, maybe even more.
We used traditional tools – just pen, paper, and ink – and it was amazing to see how art can bring joy. One of the highlights was when we were asked to create caricatures of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Philippine team and CBM of Glorietta. We extend our gratitude to Erwin Nieto for the referral, Bluespark for their incredible support, and Glorietta management for making this event possible and enjoyable. We’re excited for more collaborative opportunities in the future!
