Puked Rainbows

WARNING: This blog post has a ton of links which may cause anxiety, increase in heart rate, and mild seizures due to its heavy info filled with awesomeness.

Yep. here we go. Just as the title said, my mind puked and farted rainbows.

Yes you can use the image above as your wallpaper or whatever you wanna do with it.


Well, let me start my story… NAH i’m just gonna skip to the good part! (YAY!)

let me just tell you that I think I’ve met THE MOST PASSIONATE FILIPINA ever. EVER. No its not Sen. Miriam Defenson Santiago( but I’d love to meet her too!) Anyway, she goes by the name Arriane Serafico aka Wanderrgirl(please do check out her super awesome site <3)

why the heck is she floating!? 

Well that’s because she has this thing called the Postura Project(click the link cuz I won’t tell you any more mwahaha!)

As I was saying, we met at this enchantingly wonderful place called Co.Lab and thus began a wonderful series of collaborations which included an illustration and some design work. She embodies the pizzazz of the perfect client. Not too picky not too allovertheplace, juuust right.



Blogworthy. She asked me to design some stuff for her super spectacular 3-day blogging workshop in exchange, I can attend the workshop for free!(yay for free workshops!) Remember that thing I posted with the “Keep calm an Blog on”? well that was it.

Day 1 of the workshop, I got lost. And it went something like this,

  • LRT-MRT to Boni Avenue Station, went down and walked toward where the tricycles where at.
  • Asked to be dropped off Brixton St. They dropped me off at a Mc Donalds. Wasn’t sure where I was since the map I printed was of no use cuz there where NO STREET SIGNS.(where the F was Brixton St!?)
  • Luckily I asked a tricycle driver and he knew where it was, BUT no tricycles were allowed beyond Pioneer Plaza which was near Three Brixton(where Co.lab was)
  • Got to Pioneer Plaza, took a wrong turn, got hopelessly lost and went back t the plaza, then I SAW IT. 3 BRIXTON. THANK THE GODS.

And I am rewarded for my efforts with new faces, new knowledge, and some freebies+cakepops ❤

@Co.Lab Xchange. There are 2 branches you see, Co.lab Makati and Co.Lab Xchange(i hope i got that right)

eeep Blogworthy creative blogging kit! Cake Pops (thank u Pop Shop!) were to die for! I was too busy filling my mouth with cake I forgot to take pics of it. I will not apologize for deliciousness.

We were asked to list down adjectives, nouns, people we admire, etc. And based on that we made a rainbow colored mind map of sorts.

Here was mine.

meow. Nekko cat travels. Nekko Travels. Nice concept, hmmm.

thank u H.E.A.R.T. by Abbey + FILED for the lovely Notebooks and Customized Pencil case!

That’s about it, will post more when I attend days 2 & 3 of the workshop 🙂

Will I be able to attend the workshop with you?

Sorry, No. But maybe next time when Arriane hosts another awesome workshop. Till the next blog post then! ❤

Coloring Process

A cup of tea, some sliced apples, some nice tunes from Grooveshark. GAME FACE: ON.


I think its time again that i show the coloring process for the comic I am making for a client. And for those helping me color this. (thank you so much without you I’m dead now)


oh you know what this is. Convert it to Black and White 1st. Then adjust the threshold till the lines are all visible and almost all the specs/dirt is gone. Flatten image. Clean it up using the BRUSH tool colored WHITE.



Why is this so important? Well you can do it your own way, I personally think this can help your work be cleaner. What you do is get the MAGIC WAND and SELECT the FRAMES IN BETWEEN THE PANELS. Now make a NEW LAYER while there is still the selection. Then FILL it with any base color you want.

This way, when you start to color a panel, all you have to do is go to this layer we made and MAGIC WAND the empty panel you will color, then go make a new layer and start coloring. That way, there is no coloring outside the lines, everything is neat, easier for all of us.



this part is the one i hate and love the most.

color it in baby. add shadows. highlights.



ohohoho I’m such a cheater. Well this is how i get my work to look nicer so…THERE. Add the gradients where you think it looks the best. Adjust, experiment, play around with the SOFT LIGHT, HARD LIGHT, OVERLAY, MULTIPLY, LIGHTEN, etc.



If your’e still not satisfied with what’s in front of you, DO NOT FEAR, add another gradient overlay of a different color (to set the mood even more) then adjust it to SOFT LIGHT or OVERLAY or WHATEVER is best. Then TADA! Your’e done, now repeat process all over again for the 70+ pages to go.


have fun coloring~ *snicker*
