Art Therapy at Portsmouth, Virginia
|This was my first time with this method. I was supplied with a blank white poster paper, Indian Black Ink, a small cup, a medium length string, and an old pencil. The ink was inside the cup, and the string is tied to the middle part of the pencil. I dip the string in the cup of ink while it is tied to the pencil. Picked it up, and dragged it around the paper. Voila! To my surprise, this happened. It's fascinating because no matter how I rotate this paper, I saw something different. On this angle, I saw waves. Maybe you see something different.|
|Same art piece, but added some water colors. Another different scene with the same angle. The perspectives are endless. It is such a metaphor for life. Hah. Okay. Don't laugh at me too hard for saying that.|
|Had another blank piece of paper, and came up with this. This was just so simple yet clean/fresh. I loved every perspective of this more than the first one I did.|
|There were crayons on the table too. Why not, Godzilla taking a nap during the fall season. Godzilla likes nap breaks at work too.|
"Christmas 2015: All I want for Christmas is You"It may not seem much to the public, but to me and my family, this illustration has a lot of life to each family member that I drew. I also created this about a month from Christmas. I truly believed that I was not going to be able to go home for the holidays from the military. But to my surprise, I was able to surprise my parents at the "misa de gallo," midnight mass on Christmas eve as my vacation was approved two days before Christmas Day.
My mom would usually be in the kitchen cooking and talking on the phone with our extended family in the Philippines. My dad usually has his spot nearest to the dinning table on his laptop. My sister-in-law, sitting on the couch, would be chasing my little nephew holding his security blanket, Mono, to feed him with the right foods. My brother, sitting next to his wife and my nephew would always wear a certain shirt and will always be updated on trend alerts holding his phone at all times. My older sister, a new mommy, would give her baby boy tummy time as my baby nephew excel in this activity. Her hubby laying next to them hold a character plush, a favorite Mavericks Basketball Player to him, as he influences his son who he should root for. My little sister, always eating something and takes countless selfies as my dog, half shepherd/husky mix baby girl attempts to eat our food all the time. And of course, there i am, At the right hand corner of the drawing, just content to be comfortable back home.
"Little Caesar's Pizza"
Another koi fish tat design. An even better one:
Made it in a .gif. I should do this more often. Take a bunch of progress pictures.
*British accent* Looks even more fascinating!

I'm bored out of my mind. Can't say what I am doing now but I have a lot of time so I was looking through motivational quotes and came across this one. I also had limited items with me so all I had was a pencil, a pen, and of course, my Instragram, so I was able to choose color edits. Not much detail on this one but for some reason, it really stuck to me. I love this quote. My new fave. I just HAD to illustrate what I saw when I read these words.
ANOTHER ART PROJECT TO CREATE!
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Martinez! Gamer couple wedding. Party on!
SAVE THE DATE: AIRLINE BOARDING PASS STYLE
WEDDING SAVE THE DATE
SECOND DRAFT: Did not look like a save the date for a wedding at all so I had to make the SAVE THE DATE more prominent,
THIRD DRAFT: Exchanged the name and place / date placement as well as font and size.
FOURTH and LAST DRAFT: Ouila! Loving it!
WEDDING INVITATION: KASAL (wedding) PASAPORTE
based on a Philippine Passport, I hope I'm doing this right. Just gotta place the last names on the banner and then it should be right.
|Where There Is Love There Is Life|
Analysis of Form.. This was my first assignment from class to figure out the values and texture with charcoal. So simple! But yeah, I still need to improve on my fine arts.
These ones are from my perspective classes... These classes were one of the most challenging but the funnest and more creative classes for illustrations.
So I was looking through my art stuff in my room and I found some of my high school projects back from 2008. These four pieces were from my AP Art Final which is a compilation of twelve pieces pertaining to a certain theme. I chose Philippines!
Title: Tarsier at Night
I fell in love with stippling when it was introduced with me. It's all just dots from a Sharpie Marker. No lines. Just dots!
I had another compilation of pieces from high school. It was all WWII stuff. I can never get tired of WWII history video games and stories. This is one of my works.
Hope I find the other pieces. These pieces bring back memories.. Memories that don't need to be shown in pictures because OMG What was I thinking when I wore certain clothes lol.
