Art Everyday: week twenty-six

A couple digital drawings, but more pen and ink this week! Most of these were done in the car, hence the messiness. But I really kinda like it. I drew the lightning stork and giraffe while doing my first ever Facebook Live! It was really fun and I predict more in the future.

Art Everyday: week twenty-five

A surprisingly art-heavy week! I went camping this week, so about halfway through this post you’ll see a whole boatload of ink drawing. I forgot how much I love drawing with the Pentel Pocket Brush pen. I love the texture you get from it.

Art Everyday: week twenty-four

Well, well, I am getting behind on my blogging. That is no surprise as we are full swing into summer and that mean my busiest time of the year. Endless weddings, endless work. I’m trying my best to keep up with my art, but this level of crazy often gets me sort of depressed. Which makes art making even more essential because it brings me so much happiness. I started a series of alphabet animals inspired by my swan piece from a couple weeks ago. So far I’ve done A, B, C, F, O and S. I feel like there should be more pieces from week 24, but I can’t remember. Agghh!

Art Everyday: week twenty-two

It was a good week for art making. I was at home with a sick toddler all week, so I was able to get in a few extra drawings. My art from this week was done exclusively using the “dry brush” set of Procreate brushes that I developed last week. I really love the element of texture it adds.

Art Everyday: week twenty-one

Some fun stuff this week, the most exciting of which was I spent some time developing some new brushes in Procreate. I’ve really been wanting a brush that emulates the look of dry brush in physical painting. I used them for the first time in “Dry Saguaro” and “Ice Cream Monster”, but I’m just getting a feel of what they can do best. So far I’ve got a set of about six brushes that I am really loving. Cannot wait to share the stuff I’ve been making with them this week. My favorite piece this week though is “Everyday Jack” inspired by the art work of French artist Jean Jullien. At the NY MoMA, I purchased “This is Not a Book” for my son, which is such an adorable concept of a book. It’s filled with interactive illustrations that turn the book into a laptop, a refrigerator, a tent, and more. It is so cute and the illustrations are wonderful. It really made me fall in love with Jean Jullien’s illustrations. “Everyday Jack” was fun because I was having some friends that were staying at our house give me ideas for what objects to draw.

I’m really proud of my artwork from this past week. I got in a full seven days of art-making, made some patterns that I really love, and found a new way of drawing people’s faces that I am liking a lot. Not much else to say!

Art Everyday: week nineteen

My art looks a little different this week. I left my Apple Pencil at my office over the weekend so I drew a bunch little pieces in the Procreate app for iPhone. Also I did a piece with real paints this week! I was working on a design suite for a client that involved a lot of poppies, so I made some poppies on my own. I feel like I am losing steam a little bit on this project as the year is starting to get busier and busier. I really need to make sure I am putting in the time every night because I have been loving this project so much. The passion is still there, the time is a little harder to come by.

Art Everyday: week eighteen

Obviously New York had a big influence on my art this week. I drew one of the apartment buildings I’d see on our walk back “home” from our subway stop. A visit to the MoMA inspired me to  try a more painterly style. I even took an afternoon for myself and painted with real paints in our rental apartment (and super sad that I found it smeared the next morning. I blame Bear). I also drew some well-loved NYC snacks, and a quote a friend had recently said. I also began work on an illustrated recipe for my perfect chocolate chip cookies. Seriously, I have spent so much time researching the prefect cookie recipe, making batch after batch, to get it to what I think is perfect. That will have to be a whole ‘nother post.

Art Everyday: week seventeen

We spent the last week and a half traveling in DC and NYC with our son. So. Traveling and trying to keep up with art making was harder than I though it would be. I forgot how exhausting travel is. We averaged about 5 miles of walking a day and returned to the places we were staying pretty exhausted. All of these (except for one) were made on airplanes, and I have no idea how I managed that with an active two-year old. “Desert Plant Mix” was inspired by the work of Margaret Jeane. I’ve been loving seeing her iPad pieces in instagram and love her style so decided that I would do my take on it. Of course there are lots of cacti. “Not so Blind” was made after visiting Blind Whino in DC, the coolest building ever. It is my interpretation of the facade.
