January 19, 2017

This is the first video that I’m posting this 2017. It’s sort of a vlog. I do hope you’ll get to watch until the end!

First Hugot Night for 2017

It’s a come back for me since I’ve been MIA during the last weeks of 2016. I used to do blog posts with hugots all over and calligraphy. I somehow took a break and doing those and tried something else. Now, out of the blue, I just tried shooting a video and talking about it which another first for me! I don’t usually talk on videos and just let my hand do the talking for me.

Hugot is a Filipino word which literally means to pull out or to draw out. Most of the time it’s related to emotions (like when your partner leaves you).

Pens used (in no particular order):

  • Pilot New Brush Pen (Fine & Medium) — costs Php 215 each
  • Sakura Pigma MB — costs Php 115 each
  • Marvy Uchida Le Plume II — costs Php 99.75 each

Paper:

  • Journal given by Stephen

      Madam!! Thank you! Actually, yung pakiramdam ko awkward talaga. May mali pa nga ako diyan, yung sa “fff”. Miss you!! <3

    Awesome of you to start a vlog. I guess that’s one of the solutions to vary up the content. Especially that yours involve a lot of calligraphy and visual arts, we enjoy taking a sneak peek at your process. More vids please!

      Thank you, Sam! 🙂 It’s challenging for me since I really feel awkward talking in a video. Haha! I will have to do a schedule for doing videos since post-grad studies is such a jealous mistress! Hahaha.

    Good job, Maria! I’m always fascinated with your lettering and now you have vlogging. I have to ask you how you do your vlog? Haha! That’s a big move and keep pushing yourself. 🙂

      Thank you! 🙂 For the vlog, I use my phone/s and D90 and edit through an app. Before, I used VivaVideo on my phone and edit it there. Now, I use iMovie. 😀

    I love my Marvys too!!! The video reminded me of my own awkward try at doing something similar. Yours isn’t as awkward as mine though, haha! Have you tried Tombows? Love ’em. I could gush over brush pens for hours, haha. Really nice work! 🙂 Your friend Christian’s right haha. Collab naman jan some time!

      Marvys are simply amazing. I mean, they’re good for beginners then advanced then experts. I’ve tried Tombow as well but I seldom use them because of my experience that they frayed easily after how my scribbles. 😀

      Wait, Christian Binamira? Yes, we’re high school chums! Sure thing, collab as MQ and as ML pa! 🙂

    Wow to see those letters written by you is so satisfying to watch!
    I would love to order a paper with text written on it! Do you sell that?
    It would be so nice to have something like that for the baby room 🙂

    This a nice video! You really got talent. Good job on vlogging too. It’s not obvious that you felt awkward as opposed to what you said. *clap clap clap*. Galing!

    You got me with the title – hahaha. Pretty clever. You are so talented Maria! I love how you make calligraphy look so easy. I was aso literally hypnotised while watching the video. It’s somehow soothing seeing you form all those letters. It’s nice to hear your voice too – now I can imagine you talking while reading your entries. Anyway make more videos please! It was incredibly satisfying to watch! 🙂

    Great, I really admire your work, I wanted to make a design as my banner logo and decided to kind a personal thing, I wanted to design it, and wanted to learn the way you do it, I wish I could learn it.

    Congratulations, as you continue to get into vlogging. You started with a short video, but now you are doing voiceovers. Sa dami ba naman ng HUGOT e love life pa talaga e no? Di bale, marami kaming sasamahan ka kahit iwanan ka pa ng kung sinumang *** na iyon. LOL!

    I love your strokes and your flourishes! ^_^ Calligraphy is something I would really love to do but the brushes are giving me a hard time. Kaya practice pa ng sobrang dami! Hopefully, one day I’d be able to make something as pretty as this! I will look into these brushes you mentioned when I visit the bookstore next. Also, a lot of people are into vlogging these days, so kudos for joining the fun! Looking forward to more of your calligravids! 🙂

    Hihi. This is fun to watch. May pinanggagalingan ba ung hugot? Ehehe. But really love the way you write and the use of different colors. And nothing’s awkward.

      Wala po. Purely for fun yung hugot. Thank you! 🙂
