August Hobonichi Wrap-Up! (ほぼ日)

Hello everyone! We’re half-way through September already, and I thought it would be a great time to post my August Hobonichi wrap-up. Last month was one of the most important months of my academic life since I submitted my thesis and defended it a few weeks later—I’ll talk more about my thesis in a future blog post (there’s just so much that happened!) For now, please enjoy my wrap-up:

Submitted my thesis and watched the new Mission Impossible movie to celebrate—a great way to start the month!

R: My aunt had an operation and I stayed overnight in her hospital room to watch/assist her.

R: *Ako (or A-ko): the elder sister of your father; my aunt

L: Went back to Taft to do a few errands (and claim my graduation photos! 🙈)

July Hobonichi Wrap-Up! (ほぼ日)

With August more than half-way through, I thought it would be a good time to post my Hobonichi wrap-up from last month! July has been a memorable and busy month for me—aside from balancing my thesis and internships, I also had personal achievements and attended different events! (If you’d like to see the start of this series, click here to view the January wrap-up.)

I’ve been working on my high school yearbook as the editor-in-chief for four years already (there were a lot of complications) and it’s finally ready for distribution! July 2 was a memorable day for me, for sure.

We finally decided the names of our puppies: Pepper and Oreo!

Two back-to-back events: an ABC book launch and a spoken word poetry show by Phil Kaye and Sarah Kay!

January Hobonichi Wrap-Up (ほぼ日)!

Hello, everyone! 💖
It feels great to write here again after so long! As usual, I’m busy with my academics and my thesis (so excited for this!)

Aside from those, I’ve also been busy filling up my Hobonichi every day! What is a Hobonichi? Well, it depends on the person using it, but for me – it’s my ‘life scrapbook’/ art journal. 🙂 I record the day’s highlights on it and practice my calligraphy, lettering, and illustration in it, too. As the title suggests, here are my January spreads!

First spread of the year! I wrote a letter for 2017 as a good-bye and my resolutions for the new year.

On the left, I wrote down some encouragement for the month. The right page officially starts the first Hobonichi day!

Storybored: Artistic Progress

A few weeks ago, Wingstop Philippines announced that they were holding a contest:

When I saw the phrase: “win P 1,500 worth of GCs from Wingstop“, I knew I had to join.
I started sketching my idea:

(So, basically, it’s a basket of wings with smoke coming out of it, an iced cold drink beside it, hands reaching out to get some wings, and a brush lettering of “Wingstop” on top of everything.)

It started out so well:
