The idea of taking on projects I haven’t done before and prolly wouldn’t have the courage to try out if it weren’t for a client’s request, makes me scared but in a good way. Doing something totally foreign widens your perspective as an artist and at the same time, surprises you with the things that you can actually do. So when UP Town Center tapped me to do a ceiling mural, I knew I just had to say yes! It's going to be my first mural ever!
I made several papercuts and tested it with spray paint. It worked! I lost count of the days I’ve been working on the piece. Good thing my friend Danika of Nava is also working on a mural beside my spot. Even kuya Robert of Papemelroti has a wall to work on. I'm in good company. :)
My brother Harry and friend Fabros also helped filling in the leaves and flowers.
Thanks to Human Nature for the Rose Dew Facial Mist and SafeProtect Sunscreen (not in photo)!
The mural isn’t finished yet so if you happen to be in the neighborhood, come check out my piece at Urban Turf in the new wing of UP Town Center! :)
In other news, I’m rereading another favorite book from highschool, Einstein’s Dreams. If you haven’t read it, go here and start reading!
