Tim Burton's "Big Eyes" plus other movies I can't wait to watch

1) Tim Burton's Big Eyes - art, scandal, controversy and paintings of big-eyed waif. The story is based on the life of artists Walter and Margaret Keane. Walter achieved popularity for the Big Eyes paintings in the 1950s...only to be brought to court by his ex-wife who claimed to be the original painter. Years of "painting custody battle" ensued.

2) Disney's Into the Woods - based on what I've read so far, Into the Woods is originally a musical and Disney is now turning it into a movie which, as we would expect, might take a different turn from the original story somewhere in the movie. Though am not very fond of the  Act II of the musical, "The once upon a time...later, am a huge sucker for anything fairy tale so let's see how much of this movie get Disney-fied.

3) The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby - because I just love everything James Mcavoy, period

My Creative Space in Katha Magazine


I love creative spaces! If I could have it my way, I'd have hundreds of them. Each room would be unique on its own. But one can only have one too many, right? Unbeknownst to the online world, two years ago my family and I made "the big move" from our home to a condo for reasons I would rather not divulge here (am kind of a security phobe, and having experiened security breaches in the past has left me wary on what and what not to share online). Thus explains the different photos of my previous workroom posts from the photos am posting now.

I moved from a whole room to a decent little corner. But I must say that I have never been more happy! New space means new decorating challenge...and I love decorating a room as much as i love working in it. Looking back at my previous workspace, it was quite evident how my work has evolved too. You see, i did a lot of sewing for House of Isla Designs but for over a year now I have been consciously trying to focus more on doing art and producing original prints. And since we don't have any plans of going back to our old home anytime soon,  I think you'd be expecting unexpected space changes. For all you know, I might've already moved to a new creative space (*wink)

Before I get lost in my own words,  this post was meant to thank the wonderful Katha Magazine group for making me part of their July-August issue with the theme "Local Colors." It was such a great honor to grace one of your pages alongside many other local creatives.

Acrylic Paintings At Last

Follow my blog with Bloglovin


These are two of my most recent paintings and at long last, after years of hesitating and battling my own will (i meant to be truly loyal to watercolor) I finally gave in and used another medium. Frankly i was clueless the entire time i was painting with acrylic since watercolor has always been my comfort zone. No intentions here of being conceited, but i think i did a pretty darn good job. The topmost one was an original concept which I mean to turn into a series of work while the other one was referenced after a vintage illustration of a peony. Can't wait for the next one!
