Presenting the featured artist for December! She is none other than Ella Lama! I met her thru an event and now, I’m happy to share her story.
Featured Artist of the Month: December
This month’s featured artist has been one of my idols in the creative industry. I personally met her through Type Kita: Pass on the Passion and from then on, we became friends. There’s still a part of me that somehow fangirls whenever I get to talk to her or see her in real life.

How long have you been doing this craft?
Around 4 years
Why did you pursue it?
Because I was curious to see where it would take me, as opposed to having a definite corporate path
Did you have struggles in pursuing the craft? If yes, could share it with us, please?
Yes, definitely. As a creative, I am very protective of my work and when people started getting into lettering I kinda felt like I needed to do something else. Creative blocks come regularly, too.
“Leap and the net will appear.”
