Wingtip Press is hosting it’s 6th Leftovers print exchange. The artist sends in 15 prints and gets 12 different images back.
One image will be auctioned off as a fundraiser for the Idaho Hunger Relief Task Force. After several happy hours of hand colouring, I sent my submission today, a 3 x 4 etching of asparagus.
Urban Sketchers were at Cafe Calabria this morning, for our first sketching meetup of 2016. About 20 sketchers showed up at 10 am.
Spent a very enjoyable morning drawing in the Museum of Anthropology with the Urban Sketchers group.
A new fruit print – 2 x 2 inches, etched in zinc and hand coloured.
The MATS Bootcamp assignment for May was to design patterned plates with crustaceans. Creating the pattern was so much fun – it reminds me of kimono fabric.
I’ve been taking Make Art That Sells Bootcamp course – a very motivating and challenging online course. Our assignment this month was to design a poster for a conference in June. Mine was too much of a rush job, but I was happy with the lettering. To see all the awesome submissions, click here.
I am having fun with Zoë Ingrams book, “20 ways to draw a Strawberry“. Apparently, bees are not very attracted to kiwi blossoms, hence the bee saying “meh”. The berries are interesting to draw – brown, hairy and dull on the outside, but a brilliant emerald green on the inside.
