A collaboration with CraftMNL‘s Marielle Nadal-Reyes, the Philippine Forest Blooms Embroidery Kit which features flowers of the Banaba, Salingogon, Katmon, and Amugis aims to help raise awareness for the importance of Philippine native trees in forest conservation through the leisurely and immersive activity of creative stitching. It was Marielle who had the idea of coming up with embroidery kits using my native flora illustrations, so I gave her a pencil sketch of a floral arrangement which she then beautifully brought to life using needle and thread.

The floral embroidery can be reproduced through an accompanying stitch guide (included in the info sheet) and a series of tutorial videos.

This project was implemented with the support and guidance of Forest Foundation Philippines.

The Philippine Native Produce Market Tote is a project with Slo Store‘s Aryann Avenido. Constructed by a local bagmaker following Aryann’s design, each tote is made of carefully-sourced sturdy canvas and features several compartments to make carrying groceries and other essentials a breeze.. We also had my illustrations of six food-bearing native plants, namely Himbabao, Tan-ag, Pako, Roselle, Niyog-Niyogan, and Libas, silk-screened on the bag as a way to communicate their nutritional value as well as showcase their beauty.

The project was implemented with the support and guidance of Forest Foundation Philippines. Orders for the bag can be placed through the webshop. A portion of the proceeds from the initial batch will go to Philippine Parks & Biodiversity to support underequipped forest rangers in Ipo Watershed with their patrolling & operations.

UPDATE: A total of Php 8,220 from the 1st & 2nd batch sales was raised and donated to PPBCSI. Here’s the link to the transparency report.

The Philippine Forest Blooms Jewelry Collection is a project with metalsmith Janette de Veyra of Blue Flame Handcrafted . For this collaboration, I made vector graphic illustrations of flowers from Philippine native trees such as Banaba, Katmon, Ilang-Ilang, Malabulak, and Siar which Janette etched on brass jewelry. Each delicate piece is made by hand from start to finish and due to this meticulous process, we could only release a few pieces for each design for the initial batch, with no piece looking exactly alike.

The initial batch composed of 33 pieces was produced through Forest Foundation Philippines‘ support and got sold in just two days. We were then able to quickly transmit 50% of the proceeds from this batch ~ which amounted to P25,000 ~ to Philippine Parks & Biodiversity‘s Support-a-Ranger Program to aid the operations and patrolling of underequipped Ipo Watershed forest guards (read more about the program and also donate to the guards directly here.)

* #ForestBloomsPh Jewelry can be pre-ordered through this Google Form. This collection was initially produced under the #DrawNativeTreesPh initiative. A portion of our proceeds will go to the production of more items that can help spread the advocacy.

A collaborative project with writer Chinggay Labrador of Practical Magic, the Tanim Filipino Botanical Oracle Deck features 40 cards printed with watercolor illustrations of Philippine native shrubs, vines, trees, and fruits, along with Tagalog and English guide words that invite the user to carve out a mindfulness practice as they get clear and concise action points with every pull — at the same time immersing themselves in Filipino flora.

The decks, offered with matching rolls of washi tape in a special launch set were announced in September 2020, and got completely sold out three days later.

More information on the cards are on the Practical Magic website.

Many thanks to Chinggay Labrador for the trust, and Pierra and Toto Labrador of LabTeamPh for the product shots on this page.

Tippi Ocampo fashion design book

Plus63 Design Group tapped me to create a t-shirt design for Uniqlo Philippines’ UTMeArtPh x Fiesta Collection, along with fellow graphic designer-illustrators Frances Alvarez and Karl Adrian Aguro / Uncurated Studio. The Philippine festival assigned to me was Baguio’s flower festival, “Panagbenga.” I chose to incorporate native flowers that grow in Luzon, such as Ilang-ilang, Banaba, and Narra, and kept exotic species like sunflowers (which are comonly used in the festival) as adornments on the dancing couple.

As someone who wears Uniqlo clothing on the regular, working on this design was a complete thrill. Many thanks to Dan Matutina and Dang Sering of Plus63 for the trust.
