I’ve been busy, arting away on various projects such as Decos, postcards, ATCs and my own canvas art. Plus work. It’s a lot of art making!
Above is a postcard for my friend, Ann. She’s a Flannery O’Connor fan so I made her an author postcard for a trade we had on illustratedatcs.com. This one is colored pencil on a thick kraft type cardstock. I used inks over top of the pencil.
Below is a big set of Favorite Artist trading cards for a big swap on illustratedatcs.com. Everyone who participates picks a favorite artist and collects cards in the style of or a copy of a master by fellow artists on the trading site. It’s one of my favorite swaps since you get to create in a very different style from your own and you get introduced to artists you might not be familiar with. I usually go for the German and Austrian expressionists and have a wonderful collection of mini Beckmann, Klimt and Shiele. Lucky me!
At right is a fun watercolor set of still life mini paintings for yet another swap on illustratedatcs.com. I spend a lot of time there, clearly.
Sadly, I didn’t have tons of time for 29 Faces this September but I probably have drawn about 20 faces anyway, lol! I should have posted about it. Ah well. There is always February.
