Happy Cinco de Mayo: Taking part of Fully Booked and Faber-Castell’s Summer Art Buffet with Googly Gooeys [Watercolor Edition] (May 5, 2017)

The Fam and I arrived at Fully Booked in Bonifacio High Street. | The perks of being early: Choice seats! | Looks like I killed one of the Faber-Castell watercolor pencils with the splatter technique that they taught me. | Some of the Faber-Castell products on sale during the free event. | Our finished products up for display. | #SummerArtBuffet’s schedule of activities

Call it happenstance.

Call it fate.

Or maybe I knew about the event all along.

How things went down

After a late lunch, The Fam and I dropped by Comic Odyssey in Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street to pick up some books.[i]

We then participated in the hour-long Fully Booked/Faber-Castell #SummerArtBuffet watercolor session located in the Fully Booked function room next door.

The packed class started promptly at 7 pm and although our art teacher tried to teach us several watercolor pencil techniques, we were very much contented with focusing on the heart flower designs that they gave us.

Some learnings and highlight:

a) The most important part of working with watercolor pencils is to have fun and let our creativity unfold.

b) Using a watercolor pencil allows you more control in applying color to your artwork.

c) As much as I love the splatter technique that I applied to the majority of my background–it is a pencil killer. Use it with restraint folks.

d) Bud was one of the event’s big winners when he brought home a Faber-Castell watercolor pencil set that also included two ballpens and a sharpener.

Want to have an experience similar to ours? Be on the look out for upcoming Fully Booked/Faber-Castell #SummerArtBuffet events at a participating Fully Booked branch near you.


[i] Picked up Jason Fabok’s lenticular covers for Batman and The Flash #21 as well as The Walking Dead #167. Bud came away with six issues of Godzilla. Godzilla has a comic book! I still can’t wrap my head around it!
