April 2020 Reviews Roundup

April 2020 marked the start of the partial lockdown in Singapore. Many companies and businesses were closed and many employees, me included, were told to work from home.

Due to the current situation with the Covid-19 pandemic, I'm not able to put out as many artbook reviews as before. Bookstores are closed and Amazon is prioritising delivering essentials, which means I can't get access to artbooks as much. Meanwhile I will work on clearing the backlog of reviews for books that I've not featured. And I'll still be making lots of Youtube videos because that's the one thing I can still continue to make while I stay at home.

And I realised I forgot to publish the roundup for March 2020 so here it is https://www.parkablogs.com/content/march-2020-reviews-roundup

Stay home, stay safe everyone.
