The past few months have been a rollercoaster of a ride for Sheena Jacobo, and things don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Having snagged the win at the National Finals of Red Bull Doodle Art, Jacobo will be packing her bags of artistic creativity to Amsterdam for the World Finals of Red Bull Doodle Art and claim her spot as the best doodle artist in the world.
Jacobo’s work, which revolved around unity among all life forms, was selected among the hundreds of doodle art submissions received at the National Finals last March 25th. With her win set in stone, Jacobo is now given the opportunity of being the Philippines’ representative in the World Finals. With the country’s pride on her back, part of Jacobo’s preparation is ensuring she is well-equipped with the proper repertoire of creativity, innovation, and sheer resourcefulness to pull inspiration from imagination.
“After reading the Red Bull Doodle Art World Finals criteria, I started thinking about my ideas, such as what I’d like to portray in my doodle with Burnt Toast’s icon. I began to draw the themes that I’d envisioned. My doodle depicts the Filipino people during the Summer season. Activities that Filipinos enjoyed, our culture, and what Filipinos can offer the world,” said Jacobo.
“I really want to inspire artists like me that anyone, regardless of background, can do anything if they believe they can. My ultimate goal is, of course, to win the top spot. I know my competitors are really amazing, and winning the World Finals will truly be an honor,” she added.
The theme of this season’s Red Bull Doodle Art World Finals revolves around the evolving landscape of cryptocurrency and NFTs, encouraging full creative reign for the competing contestants. With Jacobo’s motivation at an all-time high, the graduate student from the Masters of Arts program at Naga College Foundation, Inc. is confident she will be on her A-Game headed to the world stage in Amsterdam.
