Boo, I'm still unhappy with my super crappy slow internet connection. I keep getting booted EVERY 3 - 5 minutes, argh. My net makes me so frustrated. Yey, I finish my last two big pieces for the Gallery Nucleus group show. They look more vibrant, just like my previous work, I see you, Cheshire. I really enjoyed doing my new color scheme. I'll post my new paintings in December. Ohhh... This November month, I'm busier with other plans (my uncle's wedding event, mural painting in my sister's internet cafe business, travelling to Davao City, etc.)
Anyway, I'd love to share my story with you about my closest cousin Dyanne, who is a vocalist of EVEN. She requested me to do a sketch for her new tattoo so I said "Sure sweetie!" Dyanne really loves beach, sea, sand, fishes, clouds, sun, corals, etc. Indeed, she's a beach lover. Here's my sketch.
After that, Dyanne shared a lot with me about the first female professional tattoo artist in Philippines, Racquel Natividad ( hands down! ). She has her own business, Rakel Tattoo. You guys must see her professional tattoos on Rakel Tattoo, they are wickedly detailed, wonderful colors and tones!
Then Dyanne said, "The design contained nature-inspired bio organic artworks from Racquel, her hubby Macos and me for me." Awesome collaboration!
Here are Dyanne's images. Oh amazing! Wish I could have my own FOX or TIGER tattoo on my back or arm, huhu!
Please visit Dyanne's blog entry about her tattoo experience. I must say, Racquel is crazily amazing & talented! In time, I'd love to meet her in person! I can't wait to see Dyanne's full finished tattoo! Go Racquel Go! To be continued. . .
