The Weirdest Birthday Card by Ashley
Recently, my friends held a competition called “The Weirdest Birthday Card by Ashley”. Alright, alright, perhaps it’s high time I started learning how to doodle and colour from scratch… And guess what? That’s when “An Everyday Life Colouring Book – #2 Geoff McFetridge” (published by apartmento & A.P.C.) popped into my browser. Amazed though I was, I decided to “go with the flow” and regard it as my “Doodle 101” to follow and imitate!
After colouring dozens of pages and filling up my pencil sharpener with colourful scraps, it comes to my realization that the most crucial element for illustration is persistence. To all the illustrators out there: I definitely feel you when the doldrums hit but I believe it’s also that sense of accomplishment that sparks joy!
While we’re having a ton of time at home, why not try cultivating a new interest like me? It might be the best breather during your work-from-home period! Just hang in there, we will eventually evolve into a better version of ourselves!
