Below are recent artworks created as part of a 30 day challenge.
I use the sktchy app, on which artists share inspiration photos, then create artwork based on their and other peoples photos. It's a great community that provides a lot of inspiration and feedback. I couldn't resist jumping in on their 30 challenge where the artists work with daily themes that sktchy provides.
The piece above is 18" x 24" colored pencil. It was really fun to work with limited colors and really push for some strong color saturation. She looks like an intense Amelie to me, ha ha ha.
A chalkboard drawing for the above challenge. When posted in the app I entered the below statement with the piece. "I find supplies with history, meaning or customization the most inspiring. I acquired the chalkboard from the attic of a 95 year old Community Art Center I was Executive Director of. I'm inspired by the loving scars it bears from decades of art classes. Ultimately, I think a good artist can shine through the roughest and simplest of materials."
The piece above was for Day 17: Collaboration. I was psyched it got picked even though it wasn't my favorite. It's a large 18" x 24" graphite piece I put together quickly between other responsibilities. It was fun working with the weird pose and doing a full body piece.
