I started my third moleskine sketchbook a year ago, and well, these are all the sketches I made in one year…
I think I definitely need more free time ! `___`
sketchbook inspiration :D
Reblogging from last year because they’re currently on display for our anniversary exhibit running til the 30th. I wish I took the time to apply fixative spray and frame these up right after I finished. The watercolors and the pressed flowers really lost most of their color hung up with clothespins in my room for more than a year :(
Tzaddi Esguerra 2013
Three key pieces from my first mini art series, Summers Ago. The collection took shape from a sudden nostalgia for deadbeat summers in front of the TV as a child when I used to fantasize about being a Discovery wildlife photographer.
We used to keep this encyclopedia set (another thing I rather miss as well) in a rickety cabinet that I was off limits to because I was deathly allergic. I remember always flipping to the same pages that had illustrations of the entire dog breed and drawings of odd looking critters like the duck-billed platypus that I marked every time I had an excuse to hit the books. I may have had a little influence on my illustration style for this series from there.
Also incorporated into the pieces are my personal collection of pressed flowers and quite possibly, shyly mature and porridgy sentiments from the more recent summers.
Available on Etsy.
In these spaces
where I sometimes think of few,
I get a small gladness;
like a look at my first dancing shoes.
Best shake it off,
but nice dreams keep me
in constant repose.
Sorry, I let this question sit a while, janetheraven. I haven’t actually thought on what I find nice about myself yet. Now. Dear, this is a really weird thing to be writing down. Haha.
I think it’s nice that…
1. I’m not a picky eater.
I believe I may have the acquired taste for… everything. HAHA.
2. I sometimes get these little bursts of hyperproductivity.
One time in my freshman year, college, I memorized right around ten french songs on a whim.
3. I am not a particularly affectionate kind of person if left to my own devices, so any remote form of ‘lambing’ is always a conscious effort.
That I make the conscious effort bit is what I find nice.
4. I actually understand a lot of things about my faith.
5. I can learn stuff on keys and guitar/uku by ear.
Those riffs and licks and clumsy chords come in really handy in power interruptions.
Haven’t tagged favorite followers yet but I already have people in mind. I’ll get to them after work. Good morning!
Q:why do some people call you ted?
Only family used to call me that but it caught on well with guy friends since High School. I don’t know. It’s definitely easier than Tzaddi, for one. haha
Filling up forms at the surf shop too early in the morning for any average Sunday tush to even be seen out of bed.

Never made it to the exhibit opening in time for the press thing but the relatively long caption they wrote does it for me. The giant ear in an exhibit about existence called for some explaining and justification, I realized. haha.
Also, I find the last line really cute. haha.
ellami said: I know a lot of people have probably told you this pero ang galing-galing mo talaga, Tzaddi! :D
Nawww, thank you, Ella :) At di ah, novelty kaya yan! And I always enjoy your replies and random messages. xx
The view from the quay at Toledo City where I pretend it’s Australia - only better because of the no-fail suman, sikwate and fresh mangoes there at 6 in the morning. Now one of my favorite route stops, but I still always forget to bring along my camera and for this recent trip, my phone, to top.

Hold your head up, you’re a beacon
You pull me northward in my car
You don’t have to hit the big time, baby
We know who you are
Homegirls and patio love.
