Betsyโ€™s Sanctuary

It’s not everyday you see a cow sitting comfortably reading a book.

In Betsy’s case, her collection of books are the ideal entertainment for when she feels like escaping from reality. With so many worlds to explore, Betsy always felt amused and excited with each page turned.

Made with Arteza Real Brush Pens. Edited on Procreate app.

Ahh…books. Glorious, precious books.

Regardless of genre, I find books to be a source of happiness and comfort for when days become stressful or if I needed a moment of solitude.

Growing up, I’ve spent my time lounging around at my local Brooklyn Public Library. Usually after school, I would take a walk to my local library and borrow some romance and thriller literature to occupy myself once I was finished with my homework (Sweet Valley High were my guilty pleasure book series ๐Ÿ˜…).

I didn’t have a lot of friends back then, so having books near me was my own little piece of heaven. I found myself lugging more books, which was an acceptable form of baggage for me to carry rather than participate in nonsensical high school drama ๐Ÿ™ƒ. At least reading books kept me out of trouble, for the most part.

As I’ve gotten older (and silently thanking technology for the creation of the Internet), I found myself hoarding even more books, this time in a digital format. Still, nothing beats like the actual physical copy of a book. The scent, touch, the presentation, etc…

I remember visiting City Lights Books during my trip to San Francisco on a whim as I’ve discovered it was not too far off from where I’ve stayed.

You can imagine my excitement where I was able to stroll around for an hour in checking out the shelves and being immersed by the plethora of books that were hanging around the walls. Highly recommend this book shop, by the way ๐Ÿ˜Š

At the moment, I still have a couple of books I’m currently reading.

Life is better with dairy-free ice cream

With summer approaching, Betsy couldnโ€™t help but think about dairy-free ice cream ๐Ÿฎ What are your favourite ice cream flavours? ๐Ÿฆ Colours are inspired by @universeofmarkers #ColorsoftheMonth using the hexadecimal codes for orange, yellow and green. Used @procreate for this quirky digital piece.

Judging a book by its cover

Hey friends ๐Ÿ‘‹ I’ve decided to try out something new with Betsy as I’ve been experimenting with the Arteza Real Brush Pens on actual paper before making the final edits via Procreate. I’m actually digging this style in combining both traditional & digital art techniques into one image ๐Ÿ˜Š I wanted to capture a storybook feel and I think I got it right!

Let me know what you think ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
