Trying out my #Aquarelle cardinal #watercolour cotton sketch pad. I forgot how much it was when I bought it, but i reckon it was a bit expensive considering it only has 10 sheets. The paper though is really thick and sturdy, so I like it. It’s a good pad if you’re into textures and inking. Note that when the watercolor dries it leaves a nice hard edge, too. I think the only problem I can see here is that the pad absorbs the water quite fast so you have to hurry if you want those drip effects. Other than that it’s a really good pad. :) #monicarize #doodle #sketch #art #artwork #flowers #illustration #painting #woman

Quick sketch of Tear Grants from Tales of the Abyss
My friend from college let me borrow his copy of the game about a few months ago. I’m still not done w/ this game, cause I’ve been alternating between trying to read, trying to paint, and trying to actually play this game. Haha! It’s really nice - I’ve died quite a few times. lol.
Anyway, here’s Tear Grants - my ultimate healer of the group! She’s a great character methinks! Hoping to finish it soon… I think I’m almost done. @-@ *cries in advance*

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
Since they were matched, these two shared a secret fan in which they write poems about substantial events in their life. They used a language/script called, ‘nushu,’ which is considered or derived as the women’s language. It was their way of communicating without having to relate to their husbands and in-laws what they’re plotting. It was their private little thing.

So I went to Art Fair Philippines 2014 @ The Link on Friday with some of my office mates and I’ve found some pretty amazing artworks by some of our own countrymen. I’ve also spotted a few familiar faces too, while roaming around the exhibit! If you haven’t checked it out, today, I think, is the last day! Better go! :) It’s pretty nice! They’ve used two floors of parking this time! Haha!
