How did you start in graphic design?
"Graphic Design was being taught in school so I have learned the basics there."

Who taught you drawing or graphic design?
"Drawing has been a hobby of mine ever since I was small. I have relatives who are really good in art so I think I got it from them. As for graphic design, it was first introduced in school and nurtured at work."

Who inspires you to continue your passion for graphic design?
"Graphic design is something I like to explore and it is where I can play with lines, colours, and elements. If there is someone who would inspire me to pursue graphic design, it would be my family."

How does it feel when you are drawing or sketching?
"Drawing feels natural and I could keep going on for hours without realizing I’ve already spent a lot of time drawing."

Do you sketch anything or are you specializing in one area?
"For now, I’d draw and create graphics for anything I can think about. I haven’t figured out my style yet, but I’d like to focus on making light, happy and positive designs."

What do people say about your sketches?
"Well, the comments I’d usually hear are that my works are nice, neat and detailed."

What is the most important achievement you've reached through of sketching?
"Finishing college, excelling in terms of grades, and landing a graphic designer role for a job are important achievements for me."

What can you say to young ones out there who have talents in sketching and graphic design?
"Pursue your passion, keep practicing and always be kind."

Based on your experience, what are the struggles of graphic designers today?
"A struggle would be sparing some time to practice drawing. Sometimes, we get caught up with our jobs where we earn so we forgot to do things like drawing during our free time since we’re already tired after work."

Why did you choose Merchiful to be a platform for your designs?
"I’ve seen ads of Merchiful and I thought to myself, Why not? Merchiful is a big help since I can focus more on making designs and they’ll be the ones handling production, printing and shipping."

What can the merchiful customers expect from your designs?
"Merchiful customers can expect designs that are light, creative ones that will surely put you in a good “peachy state” mood!"
