January 2017 Cat Doodles

Doodles, Drawings, Instagram Updates, Updates

I have challenged myself to draw/doodle just cats on this month.

Why cats?

Because I love cats. And I really want to see how much people like cats as well. . . since my best-selling design has a catty theme.

I usually can’t finish anything I do for myself, that’s why I tried challenging myself.

Today is my last day and I’m happy to say that I did not skip a day!

Here’s my daily cat doodles from Day 1 to Day 31!

Day 31


Can’t believe I finished a personal challenge! This is a progress for me. haha.

I also found that the best time for doodling is during the day. The doodles I did during the day that I included here looked a bit better than the others.

I don’t have any doodle challenge planned for February, I’m taking a break from that.

I have a lot of personal tasks I plan to do next month. So far, my Hobonichi Planner is working perfectly in making me more productive! Next month, I might use some of these cats and incorporate them to designs that I’ll make available on my print on demand shops. I think I have a drawing challenge for March. 🙂

New Year Post!!!

Doodles, Instagram Updates, Thoughts and Opinions, Updates

(New Year Post that’s late for a couple of days!!!!)

Goodbye, 2016! Hello, 2017!!!

Goodbye, Moleskine.. I’m gonna try Hobonichi this year!! XD

So I thought I would make challenges every month.

Days before Christmas, I started planning my 2017, although I can’t plan until December because I really don’t know what this future will bring.

There’s this thing I want to join and I really really hope I’ll get in!

And of course, I am hoping for nothing but the best for Saturday-AM. Not just because I’m in it but because they’re very hard-working and passionate people who deserve to be successful.

(by the way, Issue 60 is out now! Please check it out and subscribe! 😀 quality diverse shonen manga!)

Back to what I was saying. . .

I plan to challenge myself every month!

Hmm… well every other month, because some months, I will be busy with some important stuff.

This month of January, I shall be doodling CATS!!!!

Day 1

Day 2

Day 3


So far, Day 3 seems the nicest. Haha. I was busy cleaning my room when I did the first 2. Almost forgot to do it, too.

Stay tuned?

Hehe, I’d do my best not to miss a date! 😀

I mean, my “Artwork-A-Day” died. . . there’s just some things that would come up that makes it really hard to follow up. Let’s hope that this time, nothing gets in my way.
