I've been getting inquiries about the sketchbook I use so I thought I'd show a video :) .
This is my new Monologue Basics A5 Softcover Sketchbook, which I ordered online from @_fullybooked. It arrived the day after I filled up the last page in my previous Monologue sketchbook. Great timing! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Monologue (@ilovemonologue) is my current sketchbook of choice. It's a Malaysian brand and I like the thick and smooth paper of their Softcover Sketchbook. It's thick enough to hold light watercolor (the paper warps a little bit but I don't mind). I like the A5 one for its handy size and I appreciate that the pages are perforated along the spine :)

Finished up a sketchbook!!! This is only the second sketchbook I've filled up from beginning to end, evaaarrr, and it's the first finished sketchbook in my goal of filling up 20 sketchbooks within 7 years. Hahaha. 19 more to go ๐Ÿ˜‰

Had some unexpected downtime while waiting for someone. Doodled on my @cbtlph receipt with my new watercolor brush pens from Tokyo Finds. Leaving this for the next customer to find, or for the server to throw away ๐Ÿ˜œ

As a former/recovering workaholic, I used to be so passionate about and so preoccupied with my work that I would feel guilty during the rare instances I took the time to rest. When I came to know the Lord, I started to intentionally set aside Sundays as a day of rest; a day when I can veg out and lounge and not feel guilty about being a lazy blob doing nothing. Sometimes I'm tempted to do "light work" on Sundays but as much as possible, if it's not crucial, I put off any work until the next day and just slow down and enjoy my intentional day of rest. I hope you're enjoying your Sunday night! :)

Gouache and pen doodles.

My morning routine: I wake up, and 1) I do my daily Bible reading and devotional time. Then, 2) I put in the work on a sketchbook page while having coffee. These two habits are my "untouchables," my "sacred time." I try not to let anything or anyone interrupt this time to myselfโ€” I don't read any FB chats/emails that came in overnight and I don't reply to text messages, etc until after I finish these two things.
.
Then I get on with my day and I never get back to responding to text messages hahahahahaha

Enjoying my orange Muji pen. Goes well with my teal pen ๐Ÿ˜Š

"It's amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit." Saw this quote online. So true.

I often get asked what sketchbook I use. Currently, I'm using an A5 Monologue soft cover sketchbook that I covered in plastic. It's a Malaysian brand. I like its handy size, the thick paper that's perforated along the spine, and it's priced reasonably as well (P400++). I got it from @_fullybooked Alabang Town Center. They run out of these sketchbooks fast :( I'm down to my last four pages in my current book and I'm hoping I'll be able to get a new one very soon because I don't want to use a non-Monologue sketchbook :(

I love Muji gel pens. They're what I've been consistently using in my sketchbook. The gel pens write like butterโ€” so smooth! I hoard the pink and brown pens in particular and I really use up the pens until they run out of ink. I love Muji stationery in general. @muji_ph, please sponsor me! Lels!

Sketchbook spread. I try to be disciplined about my sketchbook habit but I'm not STRICT about filling up a page per day. I don't want keeping a sketchbook to become an obligation and become stressful. I may miss a day or two (or three) when I'm really too busy, but I always return to it as soon as I can. I get antsy anyway when too many days go by and I don't get to draw in my sketchbook.

Making travel gouache tinsโ€” I got the tins from Landmark Makati and the half pans from @_fullybooked ATC ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
