One of the things I secretly enjoy doing is go Behance-hopping. Behance? As in the online portfolio website? Yes, Behance. Why? Simply because I enjoy looking at works of people, amateurs and professionals alike. It all started with DeviantArt, when I would look for nice new desktop wallpapers for my MacBook White. I always fancied the abstract designs. Triangles. Aztec Patterns. Dreamcatchers. Anything intriguing, bold, daring, demanding. And in case you were wondering, no, I don’t put stickers on my laptop. I’m not a hipster.
While clicking portfolios like crazy, and checking the social media accounts of the different local talents, I found out that this year’s Art in The Park was to take place on April 3. Of course the inner, faux-hipster in me was screaming. Jumping. Ecstatic. I have always loved design. Art was something I appreciated. It’s something that calms me. And just liked that, booked! I wrote on my planner that I have to go there no matter what. No matter what.

I was only certain that I was craving to learn more about design, I was hoping to be inspired to get into the craft and develop skills, and I wanted to be surrounded by people whom I share the same interest with.
Having arrived at the venue 15 minutes before the expected time that the event would start, I decided to look at the Heima Brixton store. It was my first time in that branch and I can say that despite being situated in a different area from the Cubao Expo branch which I have been to, it managed to contain the same atmosphere.
