less snarky watercolor typography

It turns out that there is a limit to the number of snarky water typography pieces I can make. This likely means that I am much softer than I had imagined. This shouldn’t bother me but somehow, it does.

But it doesn’t take long for me to get over things that bother me. I always go back to things I love. Such as:

Also, a favorite daily to-do:

And, indirectly, the following:

For those who are not from Cebu, the words above are names of street food. The past week has been spent mainly for tweaking and reviving this local lifestyle blog that I manage with friends. It’s called Hanging Rice and it’s loads of fun to take care of. Come visit us, if you have time!

watercolor typography for the injured

Did I tell you the story of how I sprained my left wrist? You had better sit down for this, it’s a doozy. One afternoon, while the boyfriend and I were walking home from the supermarket, I decided to hang the lone plastic bag I was holding around my left wrist. The next day, said wrist was aching. I forgive you if you scoff. I really am that lame.

My wrist was not swollen or anything. My hand still had about 98% functionality.  And so I kept sewing and crafting; resting the wrist (which, really, was painful only 2% of the time) was not an option. Turns out, a sprain is not an affliction that one can work away, as I usually do with any form of illness I sometimes get.

And so here I am, taking it slow and doing something mellow. (But still rhyming).

There was no way I’d spend my resting days not making anything, though. And so I went back to watercolor.

You have probably noticed that I am focusing on typography. This is because I can’t paint everything else to save my life. Or I have no patience to make non-type subjects perfect in my eyes.

Besides, I actually rather enjoy these typography pieces. It feels good to finally have a medium where I can let my cynicism shine through.

this was wednesday

  • Woke up at 8:30AM after only 6 hours of sleep. Five if you deduct the hour I woke after a horrible dream and had to be talked back to sleep by the boyfriend.
  • Left the house at 9AM to get a haircut.
  • Came home at 9:45AM to cook and have breakfast.
  • Got ready and waited.
  • Received SMS that driver is ready for us at around 11:20AM.
  • Arrived at one of the local TV studios at around 12:30PM.
  • And at around 1:30PM, I made a fool of myself. Proof:




  •  Driven home at around 3:30PM and had very late lunch.
  • Switched AC on upon arriving home and passed out.

“Acting” is hard work, man.  I don’t have the right amount of gaiety for TV, I think.

The shirt I wore for the feature was our DIY or DIE design. We have posted it up on the SHOP, together with our new items.

The TV feature was for a couple of DIY projects, by the way. It was shown yesterday. I didn’t catch it because I don’t have the energy to process my lack of gaiety in front of the camera. Ha.
