Another Moleskine Project
Posted on: 30th of March 2009 | Under: Artsy Fartsy

If you’re a regular visitor of my blog, then you would know how much I love painting in my moleskine sketchbooks. My first moleskine art was exhibited at the London Book Fair last April 2008, while my second set has been exhibted around several European cities (Milan, Rome, Turin, Frankfurt) and is still currently with Moleskine Italy.

Two weeks ago, Moleskine Italy contacted me to do another project for them again. A new set of moleskine notebooks will be available in the market by mid-April, and they sent me one to fill up in time for this year’s London Book Fair (which is next month already!!).

The new moleskine notebooks (called Moleskine Folio) will come in two new sizes: A4 and A3. Perfect sizes for artists who enjoy the freedom of space. They sent me an A4 sketchbook, and at first I was a little hesistant drawing on a bigger space that I’m used to (I used the pocket size in my previous moleskine art), but I quickly fell in love with it. I like how I don’t have to squeeze my illustrations in the small pages anymore. =)

Here’s a comparison of the different moleskine sizes:

A4, Large, Pocket

See how big the A4 is compared to the pocket? =P

Anyway, I’ve been quite busy filling the pages up these past few days. Here are two of my recent works:

sc00867bd0

Done in gouache and soft pastels. I love my polaroid! Digicams are also great, but I tend to snap too many photos with my digicam. It’s probably one of the reasons why my mac’s hard drive has been suffering! I really need to clean up its memory soon. Or maybe get a new dell memory or something. Polaroids are great, because they print instant memories. Each photo is always unique and personal. <3 Save Polaroid!

sc01103aaf

Done in gouache. You can never be too full for dessert! =P This is my second edition of this illustration. See the first one here. :)

To view the rest of the pages (it’s still a work in progress, though) head on over to my flickr.

A Blab of Updates
Posted on: 28th of October 2004 | Under: Life & Love

So it seems that I’ve been neglecting this again. Who can be blamed for the lack of activity in here? I’ve just been way too preoccupied with the offline life.

A lot has happened in a span of one month.

Our exhibit that started in the first week of the month has been a success. The yearbook which I designed has been labeled “THE BEST in the history of PSID.” :) Some heart-aching words were said and painful memories were made too. Gladly, those were resolved and things are somewhat back to normal again. ^^;; Gimicks, dancing, get-togethers and heart to heart talks with friends make up for all the exhausting work.

My life was simply in full swing.

Since things are starting to slow down now, I’m probably going to update more often. Granted that I don’t get a writer’s block… something that I’ve been getting quite a lot these past few… err.. weeks!

I also made some changes in my domain. I turned the index page into an online resume/portfolio and I moved my blog to daily.optimystique.net. =)

I promised some pictures, so I’ll leave the links before I go. =)

+ exhibit booth pics
+ yearbook pics

Enjoy! ^_,~;;

Exhibit Construction
Posted on: 25th of September 2004 | Under: Life & Love

Construction of our exhibit is almost done. That means I’ll be less busy, and hopefully have more time to update this site! =P It’s seriously crying out for some attention!

An update, plus some pictures, will be posted regarding our exhibit soon. ^^;;
