Illustration Friday #5 “Old-fashioned”

One aspect of life constantly changing is fashion. Not just because of its root word, I guess a whole lot of you would agree that fashion would best represent this week’s Illustration Friday theme “Old-fashioned”.

I accidentally messed up the ink here. I always tend to forget to keep avoiding the wet ink. Here it is anyway.

Rainy Days

There are only two seasons in a tropical country like the Philippines, the dry season and the wet season. I’m loving the cold weather lately. It’s a lot harder to wake up on days like these. The rainy season would be over soon, so I better enjoy it!

By the way, I visited the art store last weekend and purchased dip pens and a bottle of India ink. I’m enjoying using them so far for my ink works. It’s quite difficult though to use them at first. Having these new tools makes me think of learning Calligraphy. I’ll find time for that. In the meantime, here’s what I’ve done for the week.
