Pigtails by Jazmin Cruz

People often ask me how I draw them. The answer is, I doodle them on my sketch pad or any piece of paper I could find. As you can see, the doodle part is imperfect. So I scan it and trace it using Adobe Illustrator. Then I have to make sure that the items suits Pigtails. And there you have it.



To the Hong Kong tourist survivors and for their loved ones who passed away, I send this message to you and your family.

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.

I know I can’t draw well on paper, but that doesn’t stop me from doing what I love to do. Draw. 🙂

Even if you’re not good at drawing (look at my drawings), you can still fix it via illustrator or photoshop. (I prefer illustrator because they are vector output.)

Ideas for my next scrapbook or digital layout. Wait for the final output! 🙂

For the recipe cards I’m trying to work on. Need pots, pans, ladle, ingredients…

And I got carried away with practicing for hugs and chicks. And I did like the chubby chick though~ 🙂

You can visit my flickr to view them clearly.



hi there. They’re not very cute on my sketch pad. Please bare with me. =)


Yes I did draw them. Honestly, I’m not very good at drawing on pen and paper. I just sketch them on paper, scan it and then enhance them on illustrator.



My biggest inspiration was watching Snoopy cartoons. I feel so sorry for Charlie Brown whenever he does something and ends up in failure. Even though things may get him down, he always has his good best friend Linus to supports him. Let’s not forget his psychiatrist, Lucy, to keep him grounded.


My drawings are not perfect and that’s how I want people to know who I am. That it’s okay to be imperfect as long as it is done by you.




I have designed a lot of cute items in the past but this is my latest one, the Pigtails. It seems that when I posted this drawing on my Facebook, I did receive a lot of good feedback. I felt so happy about it and I want to do more.

To be honest, I haven’t really come up with a way to utilize them, until when my friend and I was going to visit our friend who just gave birth. My friend Mel told me, why not sell your drawings for scrapbook embellishments. Haven’t really thought of that, but I could give it a shot. Who knows, maybe this is my shot.

This is just the beginning, and let’s see how things will be. So stick around, okay? 🙂
