June would be the month of graduation. I have to prepare for two gifts for two senior schoolmates. What would be a great gift for a student graduates from school and enters the society for working as an independent individual? A thing would be a companion for the first hard time to get used to new job as well as new lifestyle. My choice is a bullet journal for the rest of 2019, from June to December.

It would be kind of difficult for me because I have to set up for the future seven months on the bullet journal and draw two different versions for two people. It took me two hours to think how to achieve this task. 

Following are the four general items of my journal:

#1 The theme

#2 The journal cover 

#3 The month cover

#4 The daily construction of each month

The theme is the most important decision. I want the whole journal is a story about friendship, courage and love which are also the story of the young girl is growing up after entering the society. 

I am inspired by the movie "The Avengers" and a cartoon series "Please to Eat the Little Red Bean". The two both are one main character with friends to accomplish tasks. 

For the avengers theme, on each month cover, there would be a stone gained by the avengers according to the movie. On the seventh month cover, the last month of 2019, all the six stones and all the avengers would gather to kill the thano successfully as well as the happy ending of the challenge of 2019.

For the red bean theme, there would be a desert made by the red bean according to the cartoon while none of them are be eaten successfully until the December. Based on the cartoon, the little red bean's biggest dream is to be eaten by human.

The two themes are fun, aren't they? I am going to draw as soon as possible.

      @knight Actually, each specific item is not my original design. I collected all the related materials from web and redesigned them into the themes I wanted. This creative process was accomplished in google slides inscluding color, font, style and layout. In other words, I made a digital version at first which has cost 80% of time. After that, I drew the journal based on the digital version which was very quick ( I paint directly using markers without draft.)

      @5plus6 it's still amazing for painting directly like that.
