Kicking off 2013 right!

Got two exhibits lined up this January so I’d say 2013 is definitely off to an awesome start!

chroma

My Greek Myths x Circus series, along with the works of Ana Isip, will be exhibited at the Galleria Volada (Corridor Gallery) of the San Beda Alabang Museum.

The exhibit opens this Friday,  January 18 at 10:30 AM and will run until February 12.

Yes, in the morning. I know it’s a weekday morning and all, but I hope you can drop by! 😀

I’ll also be part of the 3rd Instant Doodles Drawing Exhibition with a whole bunch of awesome artists. Will update when they’ve released a poster. Will also update when I have work in progress because OMG I HAVEN’T STARTED ON ANYTHING YET LALALALALA

Dia de los Muertos

A Dia delos Muertos-themed shoot inspired by the paintings of Frida Kahlo.

On Photos: Pola Castillo and Gabrielle Lopez
Photography, Concept, Art Direction: Katrina Pallon
Make-up and Styling: Gabrielle Lopez and Katrina Pallon
Corsets by Pola Castillo

This is probably my favourite shoot so far. I had so much fun with the make-up, even if symmetry was a bit of a problem.

The corsets were awesome. Pola made them herself and took about an inch to inch and a half off my actual waistline and made me stand up straight for once in my life. My back did hurt for a couple of days after, but what is pain in the name of beauty hahaha!

And what I find particularly awesome about this shoot is that despite the heavy Mexican influence, these photos still have a very Filipino feel to them.

Because you know, I’m nationalistic like that.

Tim Burton Photoseries

I am a big Tim Burton fan. So when Pallon asked me to help out on her latest shoot — a stylized recreation of scenes from our favourite Tim Burton films– I was stoked. These photos are the product of a little over two months’ worth of love, sweat, and weekends. It also marks one of the rare moments that I am in front of the camera rather than behind it.
