Like what I said on my Instagram post yesterday, I rarely post my works but this is something I REALLY need to post. There's no specific reason but simply because I'm proud of this!
I've been making book covers for almost a year now and I can see the difference between my the first book covers I made and the ones I made just recently. Yes, there's a HUGE difference but thing is, I'm not satisfied with it. I want to improve more. I want to learn more and there's no other way for me to learn but to keep practicing and working hard. I may come across some hardships and mistakes but I know it will help me to be better and that's what I learned since I graduated college.
For most people, they were able to figure out what they really want in life during college but for me, I found what I really want to do after college. All the hardships I went through taught me how to be stronger, to be better, to work harder, to keep the positive attitude and most of all, to have stronger faith. I've met a lot of different people in my life and I have to say they taught me lessons in life but the person who really inspired me the most is really Jay. I really have to give it to him. Watching him work his ass off, without even complaining, he inspired me to work way harder in order to achieve my dreams. Like what he always say "Work Hard Play Hard". It's a principle that I didn't only learn by words but by heart as well.
Thanks to Jay, I learned to work my ass off that I'm where I am now. Marian was the one who convinced me to start this but I know if I didn't worked as hard as I did, I wouldn't be where I am now either. I've never seen myself work this hard. Sometimes, I too am surprised by myself. I never thought that I'll be working on book covers but here I am and I'm happy with what I do and it's something I'm really thankful for. I'm so blessed to have such amazing people around me and most of all, to have God in my life.
From a student who was one of the students who belonged to the 'lower level' of her batch, I'm now here. Standing in my own feet and feeling proud about my works. I know this is just the start. I still have a long way to go. I know I would still face a lot of obstacles in life but as long as I keep the attitude I have now, I know I'll be able to overcome all of them and not only be a better artist but also a better person as well.
Below is another billionaire book from Marian Tee. It's another one of her amazing books. What I love about this book is that not only it has a great story but also it has a gorgeous cover that even I was surprised by it. I'm just really proud of this work of mine. I'm pretty sure it will always be one of my top favorites.
To those who are interested to get a copy of "The Greek Billionaire and I" the link is found just after the photos below.
Title: The Greek Billionaire and I
Author: Marian Tee
Status: Released on Amazon
When the powerful, sexy, and gorgeous Greek billionaire Mykolas Sallis finds a misplaced cellphone and reads its messages, he becomes intrigued with its owner, a woman who seems to possess the rare combination of beauty, wit, and lots of snappy comebacks.
13:15 How about going for a movie tomorrow night?
13:16 Thomas, you’re a good guy, so I’m going to tell you the truth once and for all.
13:17 What is it?
13:18 I’m a lesbian. I want your d*ck – but not for the reasons you’re hoping for.
When curvy 24-year-old schoolteacher Velvet Lambert speaks with the Greek billionaire the first time, she knows right away she’s out of her league. She does her snarky best to resist, but in the end she still finds herself saying ‘yes’ to a marriage of convenience, pretending she isn’t head over heels with him, and trying not to lose hope even if she knows Mykolas only sees her as a prized possession.
