Hi friends! July has been a pretty productive month, so far! I’m learning watercolor via a book by Yuko Nagayama. The first lesson is painting apples which I thought was easy. 2 hours later, and I almost gave up haha:
Have you watched Ghostbusters? Please do and have your kids watch it too. It passed the Bechdel test and is pretty empowering and just plain fun:
Obviously I love Kate Mckinnon so I had to have that funko pop. 🙂 I’ve been making more comics too!
Here are my memories of NY via washi collages:
I also tried painting flowers using gouache for the first time! I enjoyed the process:
Painting in my travel journal a lot, and painting flowers more. I wanted to try that beautiful loose airy Yao Cheng style but I guess I’m just more a messy, cluttery type of flower painter. Lol. I am accepting this, Universe! 🙂 For more of my adventures, see you on instagram! @mabuhaydiy 🙂
I started this project since Ella and I saw a book at National with illustrated bookshelves. I’ve been thinking of doing something like this for the longest time but seeing that book gave me that push. So I started this personal project, featuring books I love. It made me realize most of the books I love have been given away or loaned to friends though, so I’m making do with existing books here.
