So overwhelmed with the people I got to see during the event (missed you, guys!). Thanks to all my readers who had their books signed, and to everyone who participated in my demo! :) During downtime, I helped out at The Googly Gooeys‘ live art area and launch because ~intern duties~ (lol, just kidding). Congratulations also to fellow Summit babies June (A Year of Positivity) and Asa (Hue Can Do It Manila) on their new books! :)
Free Downloadable Coloring Sheet
I made a special coloring sheet for my demo – it’s from Coldplay’s Fix You. Anyway, I whipped it up just a few days ago and it’s free for download for all you coloring people out there. :)
(You’re welcome. :D)
I know you’re all wondering what material/s to use for coloring – well, I suggest trying out Faber-Castell Pitt Pens for this. I swear by it and I use it for both lettering and travel illustration – and now, coloring. The ink is pretty lightfast and versatile – they have transparent & opaque variants, which are great for shadows and vibrant hues.
You can check out all the color swatches here on their website.
During my demo, I drew inspiration from color schemes I used for my Letters from ABC postcards – and believe it or not, it’s actually a great way to start plotting out color schemes. I’ll share more tips on choosing colors on my future posts.
Anyway, I’ll leave it at that. Enjoy coloring, and let me know what you think! :)
Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens are available at selected National Bookstore branches, Scribe, and Craft Carrot.
Letters from ABC Postcards are available at major bookstores and newsstands nationwide for P350.
