BOOK SANCTUARY ( Illustration ,since October 2016, Black pen on paper)

A column in 'adaymagazine online'. It talks about several interesting bookshops in London which have a unique characteristic and become a sanctuary for all kind of book lovers.. In each section, I have to draw 2 illustrations. First one is the shop's atmosphere and another one is portrait of the owner or the manager of the bookshop.
