Doodles, Watercolor, and Other National Bookstore Finds5:19 AM
Last Saturday was one of the best days ever. I was in my favorite store (National Bookstore -- don't laugh, I know you guys love it there too) in my favorite mall (Robinsons Place Manila, where I lived during my internship, aka the best year of my life) with my favorite person (my bb, obvs).
NBS Robinsons Manila is one of the better-stocked branches, despite being in the vicinity of a busy university (unlike NBS Katipunan, ugh). I was so happy to come away with this mini haul. (Bookstore hauls, hey, those exist.)
Sachiko Umoto's Illustration School series (Php 545 each). Slowly because of availability -- if all three were available at once I'd have snapped them all up, but usually only one title is in stock at a time. That Saturday I finally found the book I'd been missing: Let's Draw Happy People. Which is the book I most wanted! These are really cute step-by-step how-to illustration books perfect for beginners. It's actually more of doodling, which is my favorite thing to do
I was not aware of the smirky "nihilistic mouth." *insert nihilistic mouth here*
This is my favorite page because it reminds me of J as a clerk, heehee!
A page from Let's Draw Cute Animals.
It even includes the zebra's butt, hahaha
Now to make a dent in all this crafty stuff... *rubs hands eagerly*
