Featured Artist of the Month: February 2017
The person behind The Sab Stuff is the featured artist for this month. She’s none other than Sabrina “Sab” Escoto. It’s going to be a lengthy story of how exactly we met. It started when she was still more active in the blogging scenario and would attend events and actively wrote about things. I guess it started with a specific thread on a certain community and she saw my profile and asked something about another thing. From there on, we started conversing. First, it was about blogging then it went to the arts and eventually with calligraphy. Let’s get to know her more and her artsy journey.
Getting to Know Sabrina
What made you start this craft?
I’ve been doing lettering since I was in elementary. I always found joy in making beautiful letters. I started calligraphy mid 2014, I was going through a tough time when all I realized that I needed an outlet. Before calligraphy, I would just doodle random things whenever I’m sad (see my IG.) but I came across a post on FB, some beautifully written words in script. That’s was when I grabbed my gel pen and my paper, that was when I realized that my passion is making letters dance.
How long have you been doing this craft?
Almost 2 years
Why did you pursue it?
I pursued it because I know that day by day I will get better. I pushed through will calligraphy because I know that there are people who get inspired with the things that I write.
More About Sabrina
Did you have struggles in pursuing the craft? If yes, could share it to us please.
Yes, of course, there will always be struggles. First, I never thought I would be good. Until now, I find imperfections with my works but that just makes me want to do it more. It makes me want to get even better. Second, there will always be competition. There were people who tried to sabotage me but I’ll never let them pull me down.
