I used my new Sakura Pocket Field Sketch Box (which a friend brought from Manila since we don't have it anywhere in Naga) for the roses and leaves, and though I know they're far from perfect, I'm quite satisfied with the way it turned out. I used to beat myself for not being able to do it perfectly the first time, but I've come to terms with the fact that beautiful art doesn't happen overnight. I have to work for it and make sure to hone my skills to get better, and I'm doing that right now.
I want to start a 30 Day Challenge for lettering, but given my history with these things, I better hold back for a moment longer. I might do a different one instead.
A lot has happened since my graduation, but some things are best kept private. You can be sure though that I can cross out at least one thing from my bucket list again. ;)
