Candy School Diary 2014-2015

March 2014  |  5.5" x 8"  |  Watercolor on Canson watercolor paper

Opener illustrations I made for Candy Magazine‘s School Diary for the academic year 2014-2015 (Philippine school system). Client emphasized the use of bright pastels in place of the desaturated tones I was normally comfortable with, in order to appeal to younger girls. I absolutely loved working on 12 of these, because it gave me the chance to come up with a good number of detailed watercolor illustrations to be published in book form.

Boathouse

Boathouse

October 2012  |  4" x 6"  |  Watercolor on cold-pressed watercolor paper

Artwork commissioned by Heima Home & Lifestyle for their 2013 limited-edition notecard collection featuring designs by local artists. Here's what I had to say about mine: "When I visited Amsterdam last year, I was both in awe and inspired by the quirky, colorful home facades, boathouses, and shop exteriors lining the city's ring of canals. Laid-back yet alive with art, the soul of the city is a reflection of the everyday life of artisans and crafters making a joyful living out of what they loved doing. I imagined what it would be like living in one of those boathouses and taking in a different sight each day. Then again, one doesn't need a boat--just the courage and a dream to take one places."

Macaron Café

September 2012  |  8.5" x 11"  |  Watercolor on cold-pressed watercolor paper

November 2011  |  8.5" x 11"  |  Watercolor on cold-pressed watercolor paper

Two of six illustrations I made for Candy Magazine‘s Breaking Dawn Special. I was ecstatic the moment Candy commissioned me for the issue’s fashion/beauty editorial. This was my first watercolor project for a magazine.

Ladurée

Ladurée

November 2011  |  18" x 24"  |  Watercolor on cold-pressed watercolor paper

There are not enough words to express how I feel for this French patisserie. I completed this painting before I got the chance to visit Paris for the first time, and this is how I felt about it: "The moment I set foot in Paris, I know one of my first stops will be Ladurée. I’ve even told friends, if I had all the money in the world, I would collect all their boxes and packaging. It’s how pretty they are! And let’s not even get into the macarons they’re famous for (which connoisseurs have time and again named one of the best in the world). I’ve had the opportunity to bite into a few of them, but I imagine the experience to be even more amazing when done in Paris."

Kitch’ Café in Paris

Kitch’ Café in Paris

October 2011  |  18" x 24"  |  Watercolor on cold-pressed watercolor paper

This is a whimsical rendition of Kitch’ Café–a place that grew close to my heart in 2011 for many reasons, but mainly that it’s got that European charm and prettiness that hadn't been matched by other cafés in the city. I decided it’d be fun to transplant the shop to Paris, where I think it rightfully belongs!
