Editorial Project: Total Girl PH, April 2015 Issue

I’ve been incorporating textures to my illustrations little by little and I’m pretty happy with how these turned out. I’m still trying to learn the right technique so the learning and experimentation continues!

These are so far my favorite bunch of editorial illustrations. All these three illustrations are from Total Girl Philippines’ April 2015 issue.

Editorial Work: Total Girl Philippines, October 2014 Issue + WIP

Last month was just a collection of past “Totally Embarrassing” stories, so in this month’s issue of Total Girl Philippines, my new illustration will get a taste of the magazine’s new layout.

I was able to incorporate some details on the illustration’s background. I just love how the contrast of colors turned out here, with the background color being bright, yet making the characters’ colors pop.

AND here’s the final illustration! I edited the colors since the original would look too dark when printed.

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.
