This has got to be one of the sweetest things I’ve ever gotten! Heehee I’m so kilig. I love it! No words can explain or even come close to grasping how truly touched I am. Thank you so much for this, Drei. Thank you for all the effort you put into making me this pretty! Thank you for the sweet message that came with it! Keep up the awesome artworks and illustrations! Looking forward to seeing more of them :)
The blogger illustration for today is one of my favorite fashion bloggers Raiza Poquiz a.k.a Miss Popquiz! It’s 12 past midnight when I started to draw this and finished it at 3AM. And I just realized that when I draw at midnight, the outcome becomes more beautiful or so I think? haha (like this and this). So anyway, I stumbled on to her blog a few months ago and have to say, I really enjoy it. I’ve actually been meaning to draw her for awhile now, but when i saw this picture, I just couldn’t resist. It was made to be drawn, I guess. Well I hope y’all like it!
A night of music, live art, food and friends! Chill vibes all throughout! Here’s a photodump of what I captured that night. Thanks to UPJma people for the free VIP passes :)
Hooray for another Dimensione event! I told myself I shall never miss any event related to furniture, interiors or anything related to design and lifestyle.
8 Filipino artists: Electrolychee, Farley Del Rosario, Jagnus Design Studio, Mimi Tecson, Nemo Aguila, Wesley Valenzuelas, Whoop and Tripp63
..from 8 different backgrounds: painting, illustration, design, sculpture, architecture, photography, graffiti and collage.
and 100 sources of inspiration… urban life, pop culture, generational mutation, social transformation, mass consumerism, relentless change.
Presented by DIMENSIONE in collaboration with SECRET FRESH, Wonder Puppy is an exhibition that presents 8 different artistic interpretations of the MAGIS Puppy through the eyes of 8 contemporary urban artists and their vision of today’s world.
“The most iconic piece in the Me Too Collection has become the Puppy, the abstract plastic dog available in four sizes. Puppy is designed by Eero Aarnio from Finland, one of the great innovators of modern furniture design.”

Guess which was my favorite. Hmmm. I’ll tell you later on. Meanwhile, I’ll tell you more about the whole event. When Jacob and I got there, we were immediately greeted with wine and hors d’oeuvres! How delightful! I could immediately tell it was going to be a great night. A design student such as myself would love nothing more than to be at a gallery and mingle with artists and potential buyers.
It was great to hear the the artists talk about their inspiration for their pieces. As much as I love artworks to speak for themselves, a straightforward explanation or background would definitely give others a better understanding of their piece. It makes one appreciate it more.
I fell in love with the Jagnus design. Although I love colors and the use of different materials done by the others, I liked the deconstructive/raw/simple design they came up with the most. I can see it in any part of the house and that’s something I always look for.
Thank you Lawrence for inviting me once again! Cheers to a successful event!
I wish I could have the imagination I had when I was a little kid. I’ve been looking for something simple that ties in to the rest of my bedroom decor andI just fell in love with the black lacquer and rustic feel of this accessory holder. It’s perfect! Such a great buy! The best part is, it speaks so much of what I love about life, love and art. Imagination.

An Interior Design Exhibit of Sustainable Proportions
September 24 - Beside Kotse Network, SM North Edsa
The Annual PSID exhibit! A few of my classmates and I volunteered to assist in PSID’s Alumni Night. One of the privileges we get in return was to be able to view the exhibit before it is opened up to the public. Then the other privileges would have to be seeing the alumni, the experience, oh and FREE FOOD!
Here’s what I wore that night. Oh, and cool chairs, huh?
We were in charge of arranging and sorting out the raffle prizes that night. OMG. You cannot believe what they gave out as raffle prizes! All items were sponsored! Ethan Allan, BLIMS, PSID Alumni, renowned artists, Penaso and Bienvenido, and so much more! Raffled off furniture, decorative items, etc. But only alumni & graduates were part of the raffle though. Darn. Oh well. This is actually the FIRST EVER Alumni Association gathering.
The theme revolves around the use of traditional Filipino materials. Each group was given a certain type of material to use for their room. Also, the exhibit was divided into sections and these huge words served as indicators.
Excited? Well here they are! I’d like to keep you guys more curious about the rest of the rooms so I’m not showing you all of them. The exhibit will be open for public viewing starting October 1 and up until October 31. I seriously urge everyone to drop by and take a look at all the great rooms! These photos are a personal selection of my favorite ones! Booth titles found under each photo.

The man behind Primitive Revival, Aivan Magno, spotted at his booth.
That’s all for now. You HAVE TO see the other rooms for yourself! This is actually my ultimate favorite PSID exhibit out of all the ones I’ve seen each year since 2008. Every room was just so appealing and attractive. There was not one room in there I didn’t like.
Sipped on some Spy wine cooler the rest of the night. Very refreshing feminine drinks!
A Visual Selection of Historical Structures
Totally just made that up due to time constraint. LOL
Fresh from the printing shop! Here’s our project for History of Art and Architecture! Had it printed at Dexact. It’s a coffeetable book. Photos taken by Marianne and myself. Layout and post processing done by me.
Alshiey was our organizer and categorize-r. Thank goodness! LOL
Colorful cover pages for each period in History
The structures range from classic ones to contemporary ones, hence the color scheme used all throughout if you noticed.
Budget for the project was Php1770 for 36 pages including cover and back. So I went for a minimalist yet playful with the colors to give it a vibrant feel.
Would’ve done more concept-wise if it weren’t for the time and money. But I’m happy with this one. Easy to read, coffeetable book! I hope our prof gives it back. Haha
