Take another little peach of my heart now, baby

Hullo, blog. Haven't seen you in a while. In the time that I've been gone, I went and sat for my 6th tattoo! I'd been mulling over getting a peach for a variety of reasons, (favourite children's book growing up, favourite fruit, favourite movie, I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier) but … Continue reading Take another little peach of my heart now, baby


My year with the Angry Ice Game

When Leng suggested we try watching hockey last year, I did not expect to suddenly adopt 20+ giants in knife shoes as my sons. Leng and I caught the tail end of the Stanley Cup finals series and I got really into it. Surprising, considering I usually find spectator sports a step below watching paint … Continue reading My year with the Angry Ice Game

If at first… pt. 2

I had a watercolour commission due end of January and how do other artists do it? I haven't used watercolour since I got my tablet and it's been so jarring to switch back after working digitally for a month. I'm still going through old doodles and abandoned sketches to re-do or continue digitally and I'm … Continue reading If at first… pt. 2

If at first… looks like shit, try again. Last November, I did this Bombshell Big Barda piece. Somewhere between the pencils and water colour, it transformed into this static thing with a weird face. I've been wanting to re-do it for a long time, but doing it traditionally is such a pain in the ass. I was having … Continue reading If at first…

Gab, Currently XIV

Hausbands: Y'all sick of me drawing hockey boys in love yet? Well, too bad because the Check, Please! Year 3 finale was a doozy and it will take me months to get over it. Co-captains. Hausbands. Because it was bugging me every time I scrolled past it, I also re-painted the Nursey and Dex piece … Continue reading Gab, Currently XIV

Quiet Down

This was one of my first few sketches after getting my tablet, but somewhere during the colouring, it just looked wrong, I scrapped it. But I really liked how the face turned out, so when I found myself still keyed up after a fairly stressful work night, I decided to rework it into a new … Continue reading Quiet Down

Saved by Fandom 2017

About two years ago, I was in a bit of a strop over the art world, which resulted in me not painting or drawing anything. I tried easing myself back into it in 2016, but it really wasn't until mid-2017 that I found my stride again. And I found it in fandom. I've been lurking … Continue reading Saved by Fandom 2017

Gab (vs digital art), Currently XIII

I don't think I've ever been this productive. But It's easy to be able to squeeze in practice time when you don't have to set up a bazillion things to be able to paint, in my limited workspace. I've wanted to try this thing where I don't outline. I mean, I like my lines, but … Continue reading Gab (vs digital art), Currently XIII

Nuestra Señora de Alderaan

Braved the Manila Christmas gridlock to catch a screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi last Thursday. A year after her death, I am still mourning Carrie Fisher. There was only one way to deal with all these sads that I've been sitting on for over a year, of course. So I spent most of my … Continue reading Nuestra Señora de Alderaan

Like XO

My tablet arrived early this week, so I've been spending a few hours a day trying to get used to it. Drawing while looking at the monitor instead of your hands is such a bizarre sensation to get used to. While I'm still not completely sold on it, it does make some things easier. I'm … Continue reading Like XO
