The community quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the Philippines to come to a standstill. As we stay home for the sake of flattening the curve and helping out medical frontliners, it might be the best time to actually learn a new hobby or two. Personally, I find drawing therapeutic. Even before the lockdown, I made it a point to try and play around with my sketch pad every weekend to destress and get away from the pressures of life and social media.

Though I was an art major back in college, I still think picking up a pencil and paper isn't only for those who've got that the talent to do so. Getting creative serves many purposes, and maybe discovering your inner Picasso or Raphael might actually help with your anxieties during these uncertain times. Below, are five fun and easy-to-follow fashion illustration tutorials to get you started.
