sometimes, something as vain as a pedicure – with flower design, no less! :p – can be as good a cure as any other.

Roll With It

Day ten of A Drawing A Day.
So far, so good, so cool that the kids are drawing too!

Here’s The Mommy Series featuring Sol, 10; Oona, 8 and Joshim, 7 doing their impressions of me at the breakfast table today.

Sol is greatly influenced by Jeff Kinney’s work. If you’re familiar with The Diary of A Wimpy Kid series, then you’ll know exactly what I mean.

Joshim is pure Joshim w/ a touch of Kuya. (Sol) He was in a rush to start his “first set” of 30-min video DS games. To keep him from running off and away from us, I made him doodle.

And my ‘art teacher to be’ Oona is pure Oona! Her strokes are and have always been bold and fearless. Just like her. Ooh, look at my plump, collagen-esque lips!

I am so into my daily draws that even “there” (please refer to drawing below) I’m doing it!

Here’s to rockin’ and a ROLLIN’ and creating everyday!


stack ’em up

I absolutely love journals. I’ve got a whole collection of them from when I was ten years old.

Mr. A always jokes about how I get a bigger smile on my beaming face when receiving paper over getting clothes or jewelry. Hmmm…maybe the “over getting clothes” part’s true. But nothing beats jewelry, Mr. A. Besides, I can pawn those anytime in case I wanna get my hands on the complete Moleskine collection. ^_^

Made this pencil drawing in our backyard last weekend after strawberry picking at Al Ferri’s with the kids. Shamelessly (and with permission!) copied from her work HERE.

Thanks for the sweet reply to my email, Ms. Andrea Joseph. You rock, AJ!

funky socks are for drawing

These are my husband’s socks. For Jack, the more colorful, the better.

And here’s more of the less…um…funky ones.

Except for the single-starred number there. And here’s my feeble first attempt – halfway done – at pulling an AJ…

Endlessly inspired by her. Do check out her cool creations HERE.
