Halloween 2014: Sugar Skull Face

In a few hours yuppies from Manila will be out celebrating Halloween 2014. Its Friday and what better way to start the weekend with friends and a few bottles of beer below zero.

And me? How am I celebrating Halloween? Well, I’m in the condo, at my art corner, happily typing this post and having a conversation with the Hubby. Simple. Happy. No fuss, no frills, no preparation for costume parties, no loud music and not putting on a happy and cheerful face just because its a party. Don’t get me wrong, I love going to parties but not Halloween parties. I most likely would put on a scary movie later, so Hubby and I could sit in our little sofa with popcorn and ready to be scared out of our mind. Its seems to be a boring thing to do on Halloween’s eve but, that’s us.

And so, to cap my Halloween “celebration” I made another sugar skull face, this time on my leather 5×7 journal, happy to assign her as Pencil Girl # 14.


Enjoy the Halloween everyone!


Halloween 2014

Since its almost Halloween at my side of the world, I thought of making something for it. I’m in a country that does not have any festivities around  Halloween, but I won’t let it stop me from having a ball when tomorrow comes.

I’m feeling brave today and did my first skull candy on a 12×16 paper canvas. She was inspired by Brigitte C. at Deviantart.

The Documented Life Project – Week 43

This week’s challenge was to sketch what you see right now. Really?

I have been following and making the weekly challenges to the best of my creative self. But this week’s challenge was not sinking at all. Its not that I don’t have a good view, I do,  but I’m just not into the challenge at all. So,instead of sulking,  I played with my art journal/planner and put in a quote that is inspiring me this week.

Hopefully next week’s challenge will be more ‘challenging’, like a new technique to try, or a new look at an old tool, or something that is not so weak as in the past weeks.
