Some examples of my lettering work. Most of these were in participation of letterer Lauren Hom's super-fun #HOMwork assignments! Click through the gallery below for detailed descriptions.
For this piece I took the popular phrase "Spread love, not hate" and replaced 'love' with my favorite thing to spread onto food. The goal of this #HOMwork challenge was to put a playful and surprising twist on a familiar phrase. And since I'm Filipino, you know I had to do coconut jam!
What's it like to work a full-time design job while making your own art and hustling on the side, do freelance work, run a small business solo, learn to play new instruments and sing in a band? Let's just say my calendar is full. I just have a ridiculous amount of goals so anything I create seems like it's never enough. I wanna do everything and there's not enough dang hours in the day!
Remember to take time to rest in between the action and the anguish. You are not alone. Keep creating, being kind, and fighting. I'm with you. We're all in this together.
Manage your expectations. I tend to be really hard on myself because I put so much pressure on my mind and body to complete a ridiculous amount of goals in a short period of time and eventually I crack because oh hey look at that I'm an aging mortal human being with lame-ass limitations. Anyway if you suffer from the same dumb brain I do, you're obvs not alone and it's probably time to book a spa day.
