To those whose Valentine’s day is as gloomy as mine….

(via anoukvdm)

2013 is a pretty slow year for my painting progress… No sketches, no figure studies, no art sessions whatsoever but there’s no shortage of parties, booze and failed flirtations in the hope of getting myself a man.  (SHAME!!) 

All of my efforts and “finances” spent going out for a “few” drinks, casual coquetry and the occasional groping (hahah) were to no avail. If anything, I come home dreading a nasty hangover in the morning and still miserably single rather than waking up, in high spirits, next to a gorgeous man. 

In spite of that, I’m grateful to have awesome friends; after all, nothing beats the company of good old friends. So, from my group of introverts to you and yours, happy new year!

I used to think I was tough, but then I realized I wasn’t. I was fragile and I wore thick fucking armor. And I hurt people so they couldn’t hurt me. And I thought that was what being tough was, but it isn’t.

Two days and Two nights of beach parties, beer showers, tequila shots and dancing like crazy with eye-candies. 

Sunbaked 2013 was awesome. The crowd was great and I got to do something artsy by giving friends free henna tattoos.

Title: i love music Artist: Flunk 21 plays

I don’t know if you’re in to this kind of stuff but I gotta say Flunk just makes me feel sexy.

Flunk - I Love Music.

Doodling in the office because this day couldn’t get any more tedious.

Word to the wise, if you’re a child of art do NOT take an accounting-and-finance-related job. It dulls the creativity, I tell you.

The Day I Made It On The Radar

It took me quite some time deciding whether I should post something about my Frida painting being on the Tumblr radar because I didn’t want to gloat but, heck, it’s not every day that my posts make it on the Tumblr radar so I’m breaking my rules and, for once, I’m gloating.

Yeah, The Frida Complex was on the radar and had it not been for wheresburger , I wouldn’t have known it made it there. (Thanks for the screen cap, madam.) 


It’s only right to thank you guys for making this happen. And I would like to greet my new followers with warm, welcoming virtual hugs. :-)

overthebosphorus asked: hey do you sell any of your paintings as originals or even reprints? I'm really interested in "The Frida Complex"

Hi. I think it’s awesome that you’d pay for it but I really have a hard time letting go of my works… So, to answer your question, I haven’t really sold a painting…Well I did a few commissioned works before but that was different. I had to do what clients wanted so, in a way, those commissioned works aren’t very personal and they were easier to let go but other pieces like “The Frida Complex”, etc which are painted without incorporating ideas of the clients are too close to me that I find it so hard to let go of them. I get too attached and that’s probably why I’m still broke. Hahaha.   

the-everythingcritic-deactivate asked: You are incredibly amazing at drawing!! Can you please tell me what drawing materials do you use? I also really love art and hope i could draw as good as you! So glad I found your website!! :D

Thanks. I use student grade watercolors, oil paints and acrylics…basically just the ones that I can afford. Among the three, I have a particular fondness for watercolor as it is the most affordable and the easiest to use but oil is what I really want to master.

I guess the best piece of advice I can give you is just keep on painting. A cliche but it’s really effective in sharpening your skills. :D
