New Products + Recent Collaborations

So I finally got around to populating this site with new products. 🙂 Been diligently updating on Instagram and if you go for a quick check, you’ll see that I decided to expand my product line from just postcards and stickers to note cards, notebooks and even gift wrappers early this year. It was a big decison because selling my art was really just a hobby in the beginning. I didn’t want to shell out money for producing and stocking inventory… but I took a leap, just to test the waters, and now I guess you could say I’m in pretty deep. The initial investment has been rewarding and it has even led to collaborations I probably wouldn’t even land if I didn’t put my art out there. Here they are, so far:

Bahay Kubo postcards and notebooks - Cynthia Bauzon Arre
Bahay Kubo postcards and notebooks, exclusively designed for DTI’s GoLokal

1. “Bahay Kubo” postcards and notebooks for Go Lokal shops at DTI’s Buendia Showroom and NAIA Terminal 3. Never would have guessed that I could have my work accessible to tourists in the international airport, no less! Such an awesome opportunity and I have Roma of Common Room to thank since the opportunity was offered to 16 artists from the store. Lucky to be among them. 🙂

2. The Filed! “Garden Bloom” Pen Capsule. Was thrilled to have been given the chance to design for Filed!’s best-selling pen capsule because I use the product myself and love it! The theme was “Garden Bloom” so I drew a Philippine Trogon along with local garden staples kalachuchi, sampaguita, and a wax flower. The drawings were converted to embroidered illustrations which decorate the surface of the pencap. Such a fun project!

3. A Philippine Fiesta Food-themed Washi Tape for HeyKessyThis project was a collab with a fellow illustrator and friend Megan Dino. Megan and I met at BGC Art Mart in 2015 (the first time I joined) and we’ve been friends since so it was a treat when Mansy of Hey Kessy tapped us to make a washi tape featuring hand-drawn illustrations of food we love to eat at Pinoy fiestas. Warning: it may make you hungry! :p

What’s next? As of this writing I have just formalized an agreement with a forest conservation group (!) and I can’t wait to work on the many projects we’ve lined up for the coming months. 🙂

And here are some morebrand collabs from the past three years.

4. Giraffe & Zebra Designs for Googoo & Gaga. I’ve always loved AJ Dimarucot’s hip designs for his & wife Audrey’s brand of edgy kiddie clothing Googoo&Gaga so when they asked me to collaborate, it was an instant yes. I drew a Giraffe and Zebra in trendy clothing in watercolor and also made a tropical safari background to go with them.

5. Phone Covers for The Diff. My animal postcard designs were turned into iPhone & Samsung covers in 2015 for the now defunct brand.

*If you would like me to design for your brand, just send me a message. 🙂

I’ll be sharing do’s and don’ts + other techniques I’ve learned along the way. The fee is inclusive of materials, templates, and snacks. (Additional shrink plastic sheets can be purchased from me at a discounted rate if you’re a participant. :))

Now open. :)

Hello, I’m glad to see you here. 🙂 The shop is still under semi-construction so please bear with the clunkiness for now, but the shopping cart should already be working. Please take a look around and see if there are items you like. I will also update you on this space if you’ll be able to find me at a bazaar.

Thanks and I hope you can drop by from time to time to see what’s new. Meanwhile, you can check my main blog or Instagram account for almost-daily updates and artworks-in-the-making photos.
