And if you’re trying to tell someone you love them, what better way to do so than coming out with an illustrative book than chronicles cherished moments from your relationship?
That’s exactly what city-based illustrator Alicia Souza had in mind while working on her first book, Dearest George, slated to hit bookshelves in January next year.
“I call the book a ‘love notebook’ because all the drawings are love notes of sort,” explains Souza.
I may not say these things upfront but I’m always thinking such things and find it easier to draw instead,” she says.
“I’m working on a book that answers all the questions I get as a freelance illustrator,” she says.
