Summer keeps rolling along and I have been super busy. I have been working on a lot of projects that will help people learn more about Copic markers. Yes, that's my job, to help people feel creative and discover their own talent for coloring.
I hope you have also spent your Summer being creative. Whether it is in art, gardening, home decor, writing, or teaching. There really isn't anything I'd rather do than be creative or teach others how to be creative. Like this doodle I made this morning, I am here to be creative!
