So a crazy thing just happened over the weekend.
Pia liked my animation so much that she reposted it on her Instagram account!!!
As a result, I basically woke up to an explosion of notifications on my Instagram.
I’m honestly so, so honored that Pia Wurtzbach liked my animation, let alone REPOSTED IT.
I have to thank Bb. Pilipinas 2015 1st runner up Ms. Hannah Sison for this. She was one of my professors in college, and she’s the one who showed my work to Pia!
The reason why I haven’t shared this GIF in my blog yet is because I’ve been planning to post it alongside a speed animation vlog. Well this Instagram surge and all the questions asking how I made the Confidently Beautiful GIF prompted me to finally sit down, (re)shoot, and edit a new vlog!
Here I show and explain how I made this GIF from sketch to animation.
Also, another opportunity came from this GIF when an editor from The Philippine Daily Inquirer saw my work. They commissioned me to create an illustrated logo inspired by Pia’s win which was printed on the Lifestyle section of their newspaper:
I’m so incredibly grateful that these things have happened, and I’m so thankful to everybody who followed me, liked my posts, and even took the time to leave the sweetest messages on my Instagram! It looks like 2016 is off to a good start!
Thank you so much for watching and reading this (long overdue) post!
If you’ve got any questions or video requests, feel free to leave them in the comments below. Meanwhile I’ll be sure to keep recording all my art and animation for future vlogs.
