Linya Linya – Witty Products You Are Sure to Love!

What happens when a couple of friends, a class clown and the block artist, becomes frustrated and wants to find their lucid interval in the traumatic injury that is life and it’s reality? Well, they go back to the basics. ;)

Out of all of the booths at the Global Pinoy Bazaar, the beauty of this urban art store is what really caught my attention. Linya Linya is basically a collection of doodled puns, catchphrases and misquotations usually scribbled down in blank notebooks to be seen by classmates and to be kept away from the prying hands of college professors.

They sell an assortment of things from t-shirts to mugs (tara, MUG MOMOL na!) and even bookmarks, but what made their products so significant are the really witty puns and comebacks and the visual interpretations behind said puns. Of course, what makes them even more special is the fact that you can totally relate to the frustrations behind each misquotation, served lightheartedly with a real funny caricature and some chocolate on the side. The price is pretty reasonable, as well: bookmarks for 35Php,coffee mugs at 200Php and t-shirts for 495 Php.

Although Panch Alvarez and Ali Sangalag only started Linya Linya 3 years ago, the ideas were already brewing in the confines of an Ateneo college classroom well before that when Panch was doodling caricatures of old boring profs and Ali was making his natural witty comebacks.

Si Ali, automatic sa kanya yung puns eh. Yung mga hirit, natural na sa kanya yan. Sakin naman, automatic yung pag may mga meetings nag du-doodle. So yun, napansin namin na, ‘balik nga tayo sa ganito’, kasi masyado na kaming nalulungkot sa mga nangyayari, na yung outlet na dapat nagpapasaya samin at nag rerelieve ng stress ng dayjobs namin, di na masaya kasi may expectations na. So bumalik kami sa masaya, at the same time may mga tao din kami na nakikilala at natutuwa sa mga gawa namin.– Panch Alvarez on where the inspirations came from and what started Linya Linya

What they usually do is check if a certain design will be marketable by posting it on  their social media sites and networks first. If it receives positive responses, then they go on to turning it into something like a t-shirt, mug or bookmark. I personally would love to have accessories, bracelets or pendants, bag tags or notebooks that carry their misquotations and doodles.

Everyone loves guys with a great sense of humor. (I know I do! :D ) They’re fun, exciting, and it also adds to their sex appeal. Hahaha! The point here is that the brains behind Linya Linya are not only great at what they do, but they’re also fun to be with. As to what this doodle says…

And boy, do they have a future with this!
