New Year

by Wiji Lacsamana January 31, 2013

“This is a very delayed New Year greeting but, Happy New Year. There’s something I realized before that I sometimes forget, but now I do and I want to tell you this: everything starts with a dream.  Years, years, years ago, especially after college, I felt a little lost as most newly grads do. And I realized I felt that way because I didn’t know where I wanted to go. I mean, how can you find your way if you don’t know where you want to be, right? Everything really started when I found out what I wanted to do, when I dreamt of it. I woke up one day and realized hey, I can probably paint for a living, or maybe tattoo too and I just did what I can to achieve exactly that.

So this year, let’s dream big things! Or happy things.  2013 you will be my best friend, my sister.  I already have a couple of exciting things coming up. Being a Breo Hero, for one, is awesome. It was one of the awesomest things that happened to me last year, and it continues to be so this year.  I also have a nice line up of tattoo clients these coming months—I love that I get to meet so many interesting and kind-hearted people with tattooing! I have an exhibit with Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan (the Philippines’ first and only organization of illustrators for children) is also coming up. It’s called ‘A Curious Buffet’; incidentally, I embroidered the poster for this one. I’m really excited about it.  Also this week, I have three of my original paintings up for sale at Ava.Ph ( http://ava.ph/shop/190-wiji-lacsamana.html) , please check it out if you have time.

Next dream is to have the opportunity to travel while making art or tattoo! I guess when you say it out loud to the universe, maybe it’ll hear you. :) Good vibes.”

Tomorrow I depart for The Picos de Europa; a somewhat forgotten area of Spain, located just 20km from the North coast it boasts huge Limestone walls and mountains over 2600m … Continue reading

Change Is The Most Natural Thing In The World

by Elaine Abonal September 12, 2016

It’s funny how we are told that people are naturally resistant to change, whereas the most natural thing in the world IS change. These past few months have all been about change for me and although in my brain I know it, my heart doesn’t seem to be ready. Until now, where I have taken a break and have been … Continue reading

From Trail Running to Paddle Boarding

by Sarah Morton August 22, 2016

    As ever, I’m not sure where the past while has gone – summer definitely seems to have disappeared in the blink of an eye! I started off the trail running season on a really positive note and was ready, and very excited, to get my first ultra-race of the year ticked off nice and early in April. But, … Continue reading
