Total Girl Philippines, 2014 Anniversary Issue

September 2014 marks the 10th year of Total Girl Philippines. Celebrating the anniversary means a new layout!

For the “Totally Embarrassing” section (which I do monthly illustrations for), the TG team chose their favorite stories from the old ones. So I don’t have a new illustration for this month’s “Totally Embarrassing”, but 2 of my old illustrations were used for this “Best of” feature.

Here are some work-in-progress shots. The illustration doesn’t look good at all without the details!

I usually start by choosing a color palette, then I tweak the colors along the way.
