(I am adding my old artworks to my shop bit by bit before making new art.)
This artwork is now available as prints on different products! 😀
Yesterday. . .
I was only supposed to be cleaning/organizing my drawer and probably the rest of my room when I found a piece of fabric I had cut off when I was upcycling some old “home shorts”.
I took out one of my old Barbie dolls and wrapped the fabric onto her the way I always did when I was a kid.
Yeah, I guess I missed dabbling into fashion. . . but I can never call myself a fashion designer because I do not have any formal training. It was sort of tackled a little back in college but it was more like a preview, for me. It wasn’t enough. I have to learn how to make clothes if I want to really do it. (That, I do not have money for, yet.)
But at least I have one client: Barbie!
Barbie was unhappy with her wardrobe and she wanted to wear something different. I gave her two options, since the fabric I found is a bit versatile.
I’ve been busy for a while so I haven’t updated my blog for so long.
Here is a poster that I designed for the Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta Foundation, Inc‘s 2015 Aviator of The Year Awards.
I updated my Behance portfolio, see the rest of the images here: https://www.behance.net/gallery/25532093/2015-Aviator-of-The-Year-Awards
You may also check out the PIHABF website, I think my poster is still there. 🙂
