In February of last year, Sara Blake was one of the speakers in the annual Graphika Manila, the “premiere creativity and design event in the Philippines.” It is a conference for creatives where speakers from different fields of art talk about their work. Almost a year after the event, I can still clearly remember Sara Blake’s delicate and elegant illustration art. Her wonderful drawing style is stuck in my head. From then on, I instinctively knew when a particular piece of artwork was hers as soon as I see it. The talk she gave about her work was specifically memorable for me because of how she encouraged the listeners to be brave and just draw — which was how she started in her field.
Together they make a sound much like “so,” the adverb which means “to such a great extent.” I am a person of extremes, for better or worse (most often the latter), so the ring of it was fitting, and the moniker has since stuck for good.
