Shrink Plastic Workshop at Hey Kessy + Callalily’s 10th Anniversary Album

A photo posted by Cynthia Bauzon-Arre (@arncyn) on

I’m teaching my first ever workshop and it will be on Shrink Plastic Crafting! If you’d like to learn how to turn your doodles into wearable art in the form of necklace pendants, bracelet charms, pins, and earrings, I will show you how to do it and share some techniques and tricks I’ve learned along the way. It will be on November 21, Saturday, from 1-4pm at Hey Kessy (31 E. Abada, Katipunan).

The workshop fee already includes shrink plastic sheets and all other materials, design templates, a take-home zine, snacks and refreshments. (Additional shrink plastic sheets can be purchased from me at a discounted rate if you’re a participant. 🙂 )

See you there? Please go to www.heykessy.com/register to reserve your slot!

Callalily’s 5th album “Greetings from Callalily” was released last Friday, October 23, and I’m very happy to have been part of it! It’s been a while since I’ve designed a full-blown album because almost everyone prefers buying MP3s, right? But then this is Callalily — I heard that their albums’ sales can hit Platinum — so I wanted to design something that a fan would love to have in his/her possession. I’m happy with the end result and I can’t wait to share it with you. Please see the portfolio to see what we came up with. 🙂

“Greetings from Callalily” Illustrations & Album Design

Project: Callalily’s 10th Anniversary Album “Greetings From Callalily” Packaging Design
Tasks: Watercolor portraits, illustrations, art direction and graphic design
Date of publication: October 23, 2015
Client: Soupstar Entertainment

It was my first time to design a fully-illustrated album in 15 years (the last one was for Ely Buendia’s “Wanted Bedspacer” in 2000) so working on this was a treat. We had already agreed on a watercolor look — it was what made them get in touch with me in the first place — and when the guys told me that the title of the album was going to be “Greetings From Callalily,” I immediately thought of those retro “Greetings from Las Vegas” etc postcards. I suggested a rectangular envelope design containing actual postcards featuring portraits of the guys along with letters from them to their fans. We corresponded via many DMs on Instagram and I was so glad that they were all for it! (Side note: how convenient is it that everyone’s on social media now? Back in the day I had to go to midnight gigs to present my concepts. :D). Here’s a peek of the postcards with each band member’s personal note:

For the back side of each card, I asked the guys to send me gut-wrenching lines from their respective songs so that I could make some typography art for them. All incorporating the calla lily flower. 😀

Watercolor Artwork for Callalily’s 10th Anniversary Concert + Album Art in-the-making

callalily band 10th year watercolor illustration

Delighted to present my artwork for the band Callalily’s 10th Anniversary Concert (although some of you might have already seen this floating around on Instagram 🙂 ). This is also my first time working with them and I’m very touched that they chose to work with me on the occasion of their 10th year.

The guys are celebrating the milestone with a special show tomorrow July 28 at 12 Monkeys in Century City Mall in Makati, 8pm, where you’ll be able to avail of this limited edition t-shirt:

I think only a hundred of these were printed so better go early. Admission is free.  🙂

AND! I suppose you’ve already guessed that I’m working on the art and packaging design of Callalily’s 2015 album. I can’t reveal specific details yet but you can follow the design process and development on my Instagram where I’ve been sharing sneak peeks via the hashtag #CynxCLcollab.
