Still here! And it's the Holy Week so most of the city folks have started the exodus to their provinces. My family is hardcore city folk so no provinces to visit (sadly also no fields of green to run in and carabaos to ride).
Dayjob duty was left on the doorstep when I came home last Friday. I thought it would be an easy slip into the wildforest but I was wrong. First there was the mess that was still the leftover from the last pop-up that I had to put aside because the dayjob was cruel and grueling. Layer that with the mess of the dayjob itself -- piles of paper and the chaos of frantic efforts to find missing supplies and the occasional tantrum of frustration when no one's looking. Second was the list of life chores and errands put on hold for weeks that need tending to -- grocery shopping, updating bills, reviving the art shops, cleaning up and decluttering long neglected home spaces.
So the first three days of my supposed break from work was still work. And it looks like it's still spilling over today, the fourth day.
I had to grit my teeth and go through a long tedious process of putting all my art shops in order. There are the online shops (Etsy, Society6, Redbubble) and then there's the small setup at home that people can visit and purchase from directly. Since I do not have large inventories I must keep track of what's sold, what needs to be printed again, etc. I need to have price labels so my mom can tend to the shop even when I'm not around. I have to fix the display wall.
I've freshened up and been updating this website especially the artwork gallery -- each piece that is available leads to a shop link. I've uploaded new designs in both Society6 and Redbubble (there are designs shared by both but many are exclusive to each). I've started a week-long sale in my Etsy shop with new and selected listings.
Local buyers : if there is anything you're interested in or if you have queries, please leave a message here.
For everyone, please visit and check out the following:
REDBUBBLE has apparel, scarves, hardbound journals, drawstring bags, and acrylic blocks which Society6 does not have yet. I've activated selected apparel for selected designs.
