Happy August! This month our featured logo artist is none other than Dopechè aka Cheryll Dela Cruz.
The first time we got glimpse of Cheryll’s DOPE artwork was at the Kehlani concert when she made her way to the front and handed her artwork to Kehlani. She even made a sick Cup Noodle themed artwork for Kehlani’s hype-woman and tour DJ, Noodles aka Noodz.
Awesome experience. All I want to do is to share my artwork, regardless of the recognition. I believe my art is meant to be shared and inspire everyone island and WORLDwide. Do Dopechè! Thank you to all my supporters and to the kind strangers who paved my way onto the front so I can give my pieces !!!!!! And video credit to my number one supporter @justineleilani 😘 Kehlani: “this is fire” 😱🤪🤪 #kehlani #kehlaniliveinguam #noodles #guamart #guam #noodlesliveinguam #randb #music #art
