Pattern: Happy Birthday!

Pattern Design by Marie Abegail Castro

Belated Happy Birthday to my one and only Nanang ❤

First pattern design this year. Still thinking of uploading it on Zazzle, though. We’ll see.. And yes, after seven long very dry months, I am back! Hello guys! I’ve got loads of plans for 2013 so keep in touch 😉

New pattern : Hot air balloons!

Hot air balloons!

Hot air balloons can’t get any cuter than this, yes? 🙂

A new pattern is on its way to my online store! I really had a lot of trouble with choosing the color scheme and the arrangement of the balloons but after a few hours of tweaking everything into place, I’m finally satisfied with how it looks. Hope you’ll like it, too. I’ll upload it tomorrow so keep checking on the upcoming custom items 🙂

You’re adorable!

I don’t think I’ve introduced my orange friend to you.  He’s got a message for you..

Available on various products. Check out what’s on sale here.

Happy online shopping! 🙂

Greeting from friendly monster

Hello monster by Abby Castro

Hello there! 🙂

I’m trying out drawing new random characters. I was also going to upload the rough sketch of this cute monster but now I’m too embarrassed to show it to you. The final draft turned out to be so different from the original one and I didn’t even notice it until it was finished! Maybe next time, I’ll upload it. But sorry, guys, not today :p

Will soon be available on cards, posters and wrapped canvas!

You give me daydreams…

Oh, how I wish someone would send me this sweet adorable greeting card 😉 But alas, I am still single at the age of nineteen. What’s a girl to do? I absolutely have no idea but go on and try to make me smile today. I’ll be glad to see you lurking around my Zazzle store although you won’t buy any of my goods. It would be entertaining to see someone viewing my products for more than just a few seconds hehehe 😉
God bless, my friends! 🙂

Quit work and make art

 

I’m not yet employed so this statement might not literally be applicable to me. But it is true for most of us. Unless you are some lucky dude who gets paid loads of money to do something you love. Fine, we are all jealous of you. But for us beings who have failed to become what we dreamed of when we were little kids; for those who did not become astronauts, spies, ninjas, fairies, princesses or Superman; and for those who did fulfill their dreams but realized that it was not what they really wanted; well, good luck to us. Because we will be stuck with the harsh reality that we might never obtain the job that we have always aspired to get. Only a minority of us possess the luxury to actually postpone life and go after their dreams while the rest are obligated to live through their boring daily routine just to earn enough and survive.

I am currently taking up finance in college. Finance! I am sorry Wall Street guys. The movie was great but finance will always be only my second love. My great love is graphic design and that I cannot change. Don’t get me wrong, finance for me is wonderful and dynamic; a bit scary but exciting. I accept that my future will include something like that. However, I can never stop myself from adoring and drooling over the works of numerous artists, most specially vector ones. That is why every once in a while, I let my assignments pile up and I work on little projects. I design clothes, mugs, binders, and other things that you can find on my Zazzle store. And so, although reality tells me that I can never really be a world-famous artist in the near future, at least, I get to taste the dream a bit. Feel it. Experience it. I even think that this actually preserves my craving for art because the feeling of fulfillment which I receive from doing my projects does not really last long. It just makes me want to come back for more. As they say, it feels great to taste the things that you are forbidden to taste. Well, it’s not a famous saying but I’ve been told that is the case most days.

I did not write this post to tell you literally to quit your jobs and go after your dreams. Because, let’s face it, we can’t. But I do want to suggest that you take some time away from your boring job and just enjoy life that way you have always wanted to. Take a vacation. Create art. Learn to play an instrument. Dance. Make love. Travel. Drink. Be merry.
