So much alliteration on this post’s title. πŸ˜€ Anyway, finally an update! I was able to work on several projects last year/early this year pre-lockdown, and I’ve chosen to showcase these three. Please click on the titles to learn more about the projects.

Philippine Forest Fruits Set of 30 Postcards, another collaboration with Forest Foundation Philippines featuring native fruit-bearing trees (an their fruits) this time.

(Can’t say enough how grateful I am to be working with such a wonderful organization that does a fantastic job of empowering people and organizations to take care of the country’s forests.)

The third project is different, but in a way also the same:

I was roaming around the Sakuya Konohana-kan by myself in Osaka when I received the messages from Tricia and Pierra of Hinhin, saying that they wanted to feature me on the site. I love the clothes and the general mood and idea of so, powered by my pocket wifi, I chatted with themΒ  in between attempts to take photos of papyrus leaves and desert candles. πŸ˜€Β  It was also my first time to be photographed modeling a dress (from Hinhin’s 2019 collection), and that was quite a treat. πŸ˜‰

Ending this update with some free downloads for you. Here are mobile and desktop wallpapers starring a few native flowering and fruit-bearing trees. I’ve uploaded the low-res verions here but you can go to Forest Foundation’s site to get the high-res. πŸ™‚
