Last Sunday my friend Koletta and I met up for a ladies date at Art Market Jakarta 7. We've never really hung out outside of campus before, but really enjoy each other's company, so this felt like the perfect opportunity to have a ladies date—we both love and pursue the world of art, so it's a given. The event was smaller than I remembered it from last year, but I may have confused it with the KACF event—it looks pretty much the same to me, so what do I know. I think this is Koletta's first time coming here, so we really enjoyed just going through the booths one by one. There were some seriously interesting makers and I find myself getting drawn to an entirely different sorts of artwork than usual. There's even a booth filled with Kuretake products—which Koletta just swooned after. We both walked away with pretty amazing loots—you can see mine here.

Let me talk a little bit about Koletta here. If you don't know who she is, you've been missing out—but no, she's never appeared on the blog before, I don't think. She's a fellow illustrator who has an affinity in ink and traditional media in general. She kicks ass in pencil and ink portraits—her attention to detail and values is immaculate! You can always follow her process through her instagram stories, so give her a follow if you haven't already. She motivated me through Inktober last year too—I mean, hers are leagues above mine, but it's all about supporting each other, right? Not everything has to be a competition. Friends with the same passions like this are definitely worth keeping, don't you think?
