Happy Father's Day from Bugoy Jr. to Bugoy Sr. @ponggo_googlygooeys--chief negotiator and manager of Googly Gooeys and friends when we all get too emotional to decide for our lives ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ Father's Day family bonding involved an intimate lunch, plant shopping and bonding with Lolo Pops, our very hard working and humble dad who was the one who taught me how to color, draw with a ruler and the one who generously shared with me his lettering stencils, tech pens and ink bottles back in the 90's. He was the one who sent me my calligraphy marker kit too when I was 10. He was working abroad and he wanted to help me improve my penmanship grade then. He also showed me the value of hard work. He would let me tag along in his office and client visits. I remember having to visit a manufacturing plant in the middle of the night just to make sure the barcodes on the packaging were readable. Barcodes were new then ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Sometimes, he would leave me with the art department where people would make mock-ups with poster paint because computers were rare and expensive then. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š Didn't realize how much of these experiences is weaved into my work today. I love you Pops! Happy Father's Day to your dads too! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

How do Watercolor Pencils work? ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ You might have tried these watercolor pencils at one of our workshops but to those who missed it, @kesteroo shares with us how she effortlessly draws and paints flowers with these highly pigmented @fabercastellphils Albrecht Dรผrer Watercolor Pencils ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š The brush you see here is the Faber-Castell Water Brush which you may fill with water ๐Ÿ’ง when you travel. You may also use it as a regular brush if you're looking for something firm and bouncy ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜.

I honestly still haven't processed Kate Spade's passing and now there's Anthony Bourdain. I don't know if I have the right words but every time I think about Kate, I always see the phrase LIVE COLORFULLY in my mind. I guess 'colorful' doesn't just mean vibrant colors: it just stands for a the presence of various hues including a spectrum and assortment of all the dark ones. I thought I had an idea as to how widespread this ๐Ÿ’ญโœ–๏ธ๐ŸŒฉ๏ธ was but I was wrong. May you rest in peace Kate Spade & Anthony Bourdain.

A couple of friends took their own lives a few years ago and it's always painful and shocking...It leaves a deep hole in your heart. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ข

I almost forgot this phase in my life but when I was 17, I had cuts on my wrist and my friends would take away my cutter but I always managed to buy a new one. However, my college friends made their presence felt which made me realize there's so much more to life than feeling stuck in my situation. -
May the passing of these people's lives serve as a message of how much we have to reach out to family and friends. Check on them and know that some of them might put on a strong and A-OK facade, their status updates might be perfect but they might be the ones that really need a lot of help.๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜“

P.S. I also feel so so sorry for Frances Valentine. She's only 13 and now she has to deal with this. 13 is a transformative year and a very challenging time even if you had your parents present. ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ˜ข Photo taken in 2015
