Let Me Paint You A Picture

*Neil Buchanan’s voice* This is an Art Attack. THIS is an Art Attack. THIS IS Art Attack!!!

Hi there, reader! So, somebody called me a little crazy last time for reading an Accounting book this vacation. She’s somewhat right at some point, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I really should pay more attention to making the most of my remaining vacation days.

I’ve always loved painting book covers ever since  that day last year. I was reviewing for a test in the midst of a strong typhoon when I got bored and remembered that I still had Acrylic paint from my Humanities project. It was fun, I must say. Now that boredom usually kicks in, and I’m not in the mood to read anything (I don’t know why, though), I started painting book covers again. I know these aren’t all pleasing to the eyes but forgive me I just love doing this. It’s funny how most of my favorite books have minimalist covers and they were not being a pain in the neck. I’m not really into painting but because of these books that have a big part in my heart, I’ve come to love the brushes, colors, mixer. Just everything.

ImageDespite the messy look my room had achieved, it gave me that sense of fulfillment. It’s weird but for once, it felt like I’m a part of something big. Weird.

ImageThanks to Jerry Spinelli’s book designer for making such easy covers. Plain but immensely adorable.

Also, John Green’s movie adaptation of TFiOS’ release is getting near. How near? Oh I don’t know, but both Gus and Hazel’s role were revealed. Shailene Woodley is playing Tris while Ansel Elgort is playing Gus. Being Tris and Caleb Prior in Veronica Roth’s Divergent, I hope we won’t feel awkward watching TFiOS and then Divergent. Either way, we’d love to watch both movies ASAP. A collaboration between two wonderful authors wouldn’t hurt too!

ImageNow this is by far my favorite painting. Hihi. Like Craig, I like making maps. Close enough to the original, isn’t it? 🙂

ImageThere you go! I can’t wait to get myself an album so I can neatly keep them there. Yikes!

Asdjhjahdjlkl okay guys I can’t believe this. Jerry Spinelli tweeted me!! All along I thought it’s not possible to see your tweets if they’re protected but I don’t know how it happened. I didn’t mention him directly! All I can remember is that a week ago, I posted a photo of my new Stargirl copy as an addition to my collection and then now ajdsgkjhajs. I’m the happiest human being in the world right now. My favorite children’s book author tweeted me! Even though the chance of him writing a third book for the Stargirls series is remote, I still wouldn’t mind waiting even if it means waiting in vain. But seriously. I love Susan “Stargirl” Caraway. She’s one of my favorite literary characters ever! If only there is more Stargirl in this world, I’m hella sure this place would be so much brighter.

I just can’t… ughhh. I almost fainted when I got to read this tweet.

Until next time!! DFTBA! 🙂
