My latest publication, Kulay : Baybayin is now available for pre-order via Kickstarter! Click here to order. If you order via Kickstarter, there’s some specials like free shipping (US only) and discounted custom Baybayin Calligraphy art. The book will be launched on October 4 at the Festival of Philippine Art and Culture in Los Angeles.
Coming in early October is Kulay : Baybayin coloring book. I’ll launch this at FPAC on 10/4-5 in LA. This simple book will have each of the 17 basic Baybayin characters that can be colored. Also included are the basics of the script. Each one will come with a link where you can download a FREE digital copy you can print at home for more fun coloring.
In an ongoing effort to teach my kid Baybayin, I’ve tried worksheets, tracing, magnets and the other usual techniques. Here’s something I was thinking of last year while brainstorming with my festival partner, Ray from Malaya Designs. I eventually made a magnet Baybayin characters for the workshops we did at the Pistahan Festival last year. Here’s an early shot of the work in progress.
