Illustration Friday: “Beard”

Years ago, I was able to build my portfolio by joining the Illustration Friday community and submitting my illustrations. The last time I submitted an artwork for IF was November 2011! I can’t believe it’s been almost 3 years! It’s a really fun way to challenge yourself and interact with fellow illustrators.

This week’s topic is “Beard”.

For the “Mind Matters” article, I had to illustrate a left and right brain diagram. I originally drew the girl with her brain showing, which might have grossed out the Total Girl staff (I totally understand!) haha. I had to revise it and just drew a normal head (with the top of the head intact). I still love the one with the brain showing, though! I enjoyed doing it and it took me a while to figure out how to draw the brain.

Climate Change and a White Horse

Summer is here and so are two of my new editorial illustrations for Total Girl Philippines’ March issue!

I illustrated a drought scene for a climate change article. I have to say, this is one of my favorite works I did for Total Girl.

Total Girl Philippines, Christmas Issue 2013

For this month’s “Totally Embarrassing” story from Total Girl Philippines, I had to illustrate a girl’s face smashed against a glass wall. This was one of the most challenging faces I had to draw and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!

Two Years of Total Girl

Oh yes, it’s been two years since my first illustration for Total Girl has been published. 2 years! Time certainly flies too fast. I’m more than thankful for the awesome people from Total Girl for allowing me to be a part of the magazine. This experience helped me grow a lot as an illustrator. To celebrate this, here are my two illustrations for the August issue of Total Girl Philippines.

I’d feel great if even one of you would be able to figure out who this local celebrity is from my “Totally Embarrassing” illustration! (ha!)
