Selling my original illustrations

As part of Cattski's big TEN celebration, i will also be selling the 7 original illustrations (blue lead on paper) that were inspired by Cattski's music. All my artworks will have a free journal from Papersandtschai when purchased.
It will be a mini exhibit at The Outpost featuring my artworks and photos from three photographers, Archie Uy,  Aileen Siroy and Malou Pages.
Here are the featured artworks:

Cattski TEN premiere version

Cattksi will release two versions of her album, the regular and the limited edition premiere package. the latter will include a dvd with all her 12 live demos and a 12-spread photo/story book. this was another challenge for me. designing the 12 spreads wasn't easy but sure is so much fun!

i played around with the songs so i can come up with artworks to go with the pages in the spreads. that is the fun part actually, a very collaborative thing to do. so i made atleast 5-6 illustrations based on Cattski's songs. here are a few spreads on the PREMIERE ALBUM.

this spread showed old band pics of Cattski. she also wanted me to put a doodle wing on Anne.

i really love this spread. it's soft yet brutal. the huge text says:" I'm free." while there's a tinie-winnie text thats says: "To hell with you."

the spread with the lyrics of Me and Tsaeh.

the spread with the lyrics of Genius. yeah Cattski's a genius. this one's also a favorite. :)

The Cattski TEN Album

here's what's been keeping me busy last month and has been keeping me excited for march 20 to come.

cattski espina will be celebrating her 10th anniversary as a musician. ten years of creating & sharing beautiful music to the world. and it was a challenge when she asked me to design the cd sleeves. 

she wanted me to think of "growth". cattski wont stop at ten, there will be more of her to come and more creative juices to flow even more after ten. so, i had to show that in the album. 

i decided to use lots of colors - a palette of vivid & noisy hues and use of actual brushes for the texts and other elements. this for me, would actually give a feel of being fresh, raw and a never-ending flow of growth.

it's always fun working on something like this. i get to be really resourceful and have fun while working. i did a lot of illustrations for this album. will be posting more. :)
