Have you guys heard of ‘Sketchy Stories’? If you haven’t, you should check it out – especially if you love doodling. The artwork posted on SS’ social media accounts are especially stunning: with its child-like creativity, meticulous attention for detail and quirky subjects.

Anyway, imagine how excited I was when I heard that the man behind Sketchy Stories – a 23 y/o Filipino illustrator by the name of Kerby Rosanes – was in Kuala Lumpur for a meet-and-greet! I headed to the meet at Tropicana City Mall and a little late coz of the massive traffic after work. There was already a crowd of fans milling about at the cafe, where Rosanes was giving out souvenir postcards.

How cute is it!? 

Rosanes is self taught and after catching the eye of several big organisations, has doodled for companies such as Nike, Mazda and Ford.

How I wish I could make a career out of something I love – I hope I can find the courage for it.

I was such a fangirl, lol – I started stuttering and couldn’t do anything beyond asking for his signature T-T

Nevertheless, it was great being able to meet with him! I feel a little more inspired to start working on my own drawings again.
