soul drawings

Someone once told me that on some subconscious level, artists tend to put themselves into their drawings sometimes. Since I cut my hair, I found I'm always drawing females with short hair.

hm. Interestinggg...

Hop Skip Step

My favourite Filipino dance: Pandaango sa Ilaw (dance of the lights)

Scene from an episode of One Tree Hill (before I stopped watching). Cookies if you know what I'm talking about.

Funky Animals.

My friend from work. I love her clothing style!
More doodles, trying to find my style.

Dragon Trainer

I was watching How To Train Your Dragon and then Harry Potter Goblet of Fire, and I had this crazy idea of international Dragon Trainers all over the world coming together for some sort of tournament just a few years after Hiccup and Toothless' story. I had fun looking at different cultures' versions of dragons.
This is Chiba, and her dragon Pochi from Japan.

Gonna explore more cultures soon! Wait for it...

Legend of Korra. Gotta love her design!

When I still had long hair, I wanted to draw myself in "Ghibli" style. 

Barongs (filipino dress shirts for men) are weird because they're see-through.

House near my house.


On the run doodles


ramen and starbucks.

My design take on Korra. How I wish I could work on this series!!
