If you asked me last year what I envisioned my art to become in the coming years, I’ll honestly (and blatantly) tell you that I have no idea.
Fast forward to this year, and it feels like this is probably where I’m meant to be. The universe may not have plotted it out this way from day one (neither did I), but I’m holding onto the hope that wherever I am and whatever I am doing now are just go signals for *possibly* better opportunities for me to grow as an artist. True enough, I’d like to think that with the right amount of passion & determination, good things are always bound to happen.
I met up with Mariel & Maura (the wonderful ladies behind Vela Manila) last week for a quick chat + interview and it was great to hear their story on how the brand started. Coming from an interest to weave both traditional and modern aesthetics through their versatile line of bags & accessories, I found myself inspired with the beauty of how the duo culminated their brand to what it is now. In turn, I also shared the ABC story and did some kwento about my passion + process for lettering for their blog.
