2015 Calendar for a Cause

/ 30 December 2014 /

Since 2014 is almost over, I wanted to do something in return for all the blessings that I've received during the past 12 months. I've always wanted to donate to animal welfare groups like CARA; I think what they're doing is really amazing and I hope to be able to help them in any way (because obviously our government has very little care for our furry friends but let's not talk about that anymore).

But to make it more special, I've decided to work on this simple 2015 calendar, so we can all help raise money for our pet friends at CARA. I've partnered up with my friends at Illumina Digital Printing (who are pet lovers as well!) who will provide the printing of the calendars at no cost. Yay!

The size of the cards is 5in x 7in and printed on 300gsm paper. You can use them with binder clips and hang them on your walls! So cute hihi. I also added some words to live by for our daily inspiration fix.

The calendar will be up for pre-ordering starting now until January 5 (i'm limiting the time so I can give our donation as soon as possible). 100% of the sales will be donated to CARA.

Thank you in advance for your support, hug your pets today!

Happy Holidays everyone! Let's all start the new year with a good deed!

Edit: This is completely a personal project and is not affiliated to CARA in any way, I just happen to choose their organization among many others. :)

October Workshops!

/ 15 October 2014 /
Hi everyone! Since my last workshop was a success, I'm excited to tell you I'll be holding another set!

It'll be on October 25 and 26. This time, i'll have two different classes. One is the Fashion Portraits just like before, and now, a class on drawing the whole body! My past students requested that one a LOT (aside from drawing hands! hehe). And also, to accommodate more participants this time, I'm gonna do 2 batches per day. See below for more info!

 In this class, students will learn the basics of drawing a fashion portrait—meaning stylized instead of a realistic one. I'll be sharing how I do my faces, from eyes to the lips to the hair. Everyone will also get a face template with the anatomy I use for my face drawings (because I don't follow the basic face anatomy, hehe). Medium used will be mostly pencil, but I will also teach how I add basic watercolor (black color) to my drawings. Output for this class will be 2 portrait illustrations, one using the face template and the other one completely freehand.

This class will be on drawing the whole female body. Students will learn the basic anatomy, how to start sketching the body, balancing the whole figure effectively, and adding simple outfit structures. Aside from the body, I'll lightly go over how to draw hands as well. Medium used will be pencil.

All classes will include materials, snacks, and lots of fun hehe! Oh and did I mention Zenutrients, our host, will give all participants freebies and 10% discount on all their products! So, come join us? :)

For any questions, just email me at maps.ignacio@gmail.com. See you there!

EDIT: I forgot to add yesterday! I'm giving SPECIAL RATES for those interested in joining both classes. 10% discount if you join both!
