Abbey Sy, My Calligraphy Hero

"Passionate about both art and travel, Abbey is best known for her hand-lettering work and travel illustrations. She is also Founder and Creative Director of ABC Magazine, a magazine for artists, crafters, and makers. She has written best-selling books on hand lettering and journaling, and continues to explore ways to make art and share stories through her own eyes."

-From her website,

Abbey Sy is one of my calligraphy heroes. She has inspired me in ways I would only know... and it means a lot. Her slogan, "Be Creating", was and is still a motivating force when I'm losing the mood to write.

One very memorable experience was the Colors and Calligraphy Fair held last March 25, 2017 at SM Baguio City. Abbey Sy was there for live demo. I was at the Faber-Castell Philippines' booth. It was awesome. After Abbey Sy's book signing, I also took the chance to have my notebook signed. It was wonderful to be seated next to an "icon". She was very down to earth, and very kind enough to accommodate yung mga humabol.

Abbey Sy has written books which were already launched internationally. Wow.
