A Day In My Imagination.

For the first time, I'm giving this little corner of mine a much needed upgrade:


It took me three weeks to finish this doodle project. I got the inspiration from this illustration book called "Illustration School Let's Draw Happy People" by Sachiko Umoto.

I got the book as a Christmas gift from one of my best friends, Sol. Instead of getting a black hoodie that I have been wishing for, I told her to buy this as soon as I found it among the packed shelves of SM Naga's National Bookstore. There are two other books in the Illustration School set - Let's Draw Cute Animals and Let's Draw Plants and Small Creatures. I believe there are more copies in other bigger branches.

I decided to doodle for the blog header because I love to draw. I took some of my previous furniture concept designs and imagined them being used by people in doodle fashion. Using GIMP, I painted all the furniture and treated everything else with airbrush and patterns. I was really happy experimenting with the colors!

Who knows? Maybe someday I'll get to turn my designs into real ones and see real people use them. For now, number 4 in my list of goals is out. :)
