A box for my materials

"Here lies a magical box
that contains everything
you need.
P.s. Or so I hope
Good Luck"
That's the phrase in top of my new box, where I put all my materials. Since I noticed that my scissors, little rulers, pencils and brushes were roaming loosely, I decided to make a little box to keep them together. I used fall leaves that I collected to celebrate the fall season. This box can not only be a material box, but a memory box as well. A little side note, I used glue to add protective layers. I recommend that at the end to add also a varnish layer so it last even longer. Also I recommend to put the leaves ( that you'll have fun collecting) inside a big book so they flatten the leaves. It will make the job so much easier. Remember in order to see the big picture, click on the small picture :)

New ecollustration, New town, New life.

The reason as to why I haven't updated as frequent as I usually do, is because well I was packing literally my life to move to a new town. So here I am in a new town: Houston, Tx. Yes, I was sad to leave behind a good place, good friends and family; but sometimes you got to see where life takes you with a positive attitude. I am excited to explore this city and see what it can offer me. I already yelped a couple things to check out. So when you are not completely settle in, but you have your sketchbook paper, watercolors, a pen and color pencils within your reach what can you do? ta-da!, we have today's ecollustration. Which is of course inspired by my recent move. I loved the idea of this quick ecollustration, so I plan to make a bigger painting to put it in one of my walls in my room.
