Bleak House Books Albert 剛剛打開這個pandora box ,叫我recommend books for his Christmas list

我想加多句,為什麼常常說畫畫靚不是重點,因為就算俾你畫到好似相機咁,but if you have no stories to tell, your story will never touch anyone, and it will not touch yourself. 咁當然畫畫手到拿來或者會舒服一點,但事實上有時技巧也會是一個絆腳石。
所以, (also reminder for self) 畫開畫嘅 - draw more, 無畫開畫嘅 - just draw! 

Oh man, i just started listing, but the list will go on forever.
