I discovered my interest in doodle art around May 2012 I was a “newbie”
back then. However drawing has been my hobby ever since I was a child.
Where do you get your ideas when
working on a piece?
I got my ideas from experiences, emotions and people-especially the ones I
love. I channel these thoughts and feelings into art. I have been influence
also by foreign artists and other doodle artists.
How often do you work on a doodle art?
It depends on my mood, I can doodle for 10 straight hours when I’m fully
inspired or dedicated on a certain doodle (esp. when there’s a tight deadline
on a client haha) .When I’m bored during class I just grab my pen and notebook
and start to doodle.
I personally am impressed with how detailed your pieces are. What tools are
When I’m doodling I first make a draft or sketch on how the elements and
characters of that doodle would look like, using Mongol #2 or 4h Faber Castell pencils.
On the outlines I use sign pens from Dong-a, M&G, Titus Pens, Unipins. But
any pens will do the job as long as you can squeeze it to its potential and for
finer details smaller tips pens from Unipins. On colored doodles I use
different kinds of coloring pens, pencils and markers. The Faber Castell and
Lil hand’s brand are my most used, for it gives wide array of bright beautiful
colors and it blends in easily.
Aside from doodling, are there other crafts or things you wanna try or you
wanna start practicing right now?
Hmm, I want to pursue my interest in watercolour painting and calligraphy.
Your best/most favorite doodle artwork.
There are a LOT of doodle artists in tumblr back in the days. Now, we
only get to see a few of them and their artworks. Do you think doodle art is
No. I have a lot of doodle artist friends in tumblr and I could say that
doodle art is not dead . We could see only a few of them and their artworks
because we are only choosing to prioritize a certain aspect of our lives, and
in my case is to finish studying.
Your dream doodle art concept.
My dream doodle art concept is a 3D doodle art around
5X5 ft where in the characters and designs will be all about cookies and
galaxies and the parts and characters will all pop out of the frame . HAHA ! A
little weird though, but why not combine the 2 things you love the most.
Artists you look up to and why?
Jon Burgerman, Tokwa Peñaflorida , Mas Shafreen , Agnes Cecile and Lei
Melendres . I really look up to these artists for they have a distinct style on
their works wherein you could always identify their works from other artists
for their uniqueness.
5 things we don’t know about you.
1. I’m an only child
2. I love to buy art materials but I just hoard them instead of using them
3. I’m afraid of pregnant women.
4. I appreciate the little things that people do for me.
5. I’m a crybaby
Words you live by.
Art is not what you make people see, it’s what you make them feel. It
enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same. Art is the gateway
of our souls to the world. So grab your pens and paper, draw, express, create

Those rather superb vocational art students excelled themselves yet again when they undertook a project for a children’s residential centre in Oldham. ASFC were contacted to help brighten up their well, rather drab children’s bedrooms. The team - headed up by Michaela Harrison headed off to Oldham , armed with paintbrushes, inspiration from Jon Burgerman & a whole load of enthusiasm. The results are fantastic & the residential centre are hugely thankful & impressed (you can see the before & after pics here) . Brilliant work guys. Well done.
