StickerCon preparations

StickerConMNL 2019 is done, but I still haven’t blogged about the preparations. And there were a LOT of preparations.

What my desk looked like the past few months.

We got the good news that we were accepted for Stickercon 2019 last late October. So we had enough time to create new artworks for the con. I was thinking of venturing out of my floral comfort zone, and my attempts with food illustration seemed like a good idea. 

Almond croissant.

 

Salmon bagel.

 

Totoro cream puffs.

 

Strawberry taho.

I did a bunch of food illustrations from December to February. But not all of them made the cut. I was thinking of food illustrations that aren’t similar to my January Maker sister Monique’s style and theme. Something uniquely mine. That’s when I thought of dessert stickers. The way I paint is very loose and chaotic compared to Monique’s insanely detailed and perfect food illustrations.

I went with that direction and am very happy with the results.

Dessert stickers (and a salmon bagel).

 

The complete set. ♥

Thanks to my officemates, I finished cutting my stickers a week before StickerCon. It was a good thing though, since Monique needed help cutting her stickers. Hannah and I helped her after work.

Her best selling chichirya set. ♥

 

Her biscuit set. ♥

 

2 new sticker sheets. The Handaan and Kakanin. ♥

But I was known as a flower artist, so I created new flower stickers for the con. Thankfully, I had a bunch of new works last year that I could use. I chose some personal favorites and some popular works. This time, they are circular and with a fancy laminate.

The circle sticker set. ♥

 

They look so pretty when laid out like this.

 

Limited post card prints. ♥

Next up would be the Stickercon art tambay after the pre-con meeting, and the Stickercon event itself. I promise to blog about it soon. ♥

Recent SW Art Tambays

Catching up on blog posts. In our office, we attempt to have weekly art tambays every Tuesday. Unfortunately, only two pushed through (and two where my team were the only attendees lol).

January art tambay participants: Louie, Anjo, Me, Me-al.

I was in the middle of preparing for StickerCon during this time. The matcha parfait was the one I had in mind for watercolor practice. I did the large peony while waiting for the parfait to dry. It’s still not done, though.

February art tambay.

The second art tambay was in February. This time we invited more people and finally, somebody remembered to bring their own art materials HAHA.

Paint by Numbers by a lot of people, Bird artwork collaboration by 3 people, my sakura flower, Louie’s digital artwork, a girl painting by Von (Get well soon!)

We didn’t organize a March art tambay due to my stickercon preps. I hope we could organize an April one with more members!

Art Tambays

I’m in the middle of preparing my products for Stickercon 2019, so I don’t have much time to blog recently. But I know I have a bunch of stuff to blog about still. One of those is my art tambays with my closest friends.

At our usual Banawe place with Hannah and Aira. I painted an apply blossom that day.

I also bought a bunch of post cards from Aira. So proud of this girl! ♥

Took these photos at my office LOL.

Waiting for Christmas eve at Inggo’s relative’s place. I had an impromptu art tambay with his cousin.

CBTL Art tambay with Clair, Hannah and Aira. The peony artwork is the most photogenic artwork that I made. It was used in different promotions lol.
