It's that time of the week everyone! Throw Back Thursday is upon us! This week I am focusing on my love of Marilyn Monroe. She has been a subject for me numerous times in the past.
The three illustrations I am sharing are all from different years and different mediums.
The first is the newest and is from the summer of 2011 and is graphite pencil.
The next is roughly from 2009 and is sharpie. I'm always proud of this one because I did not draw a base pencil sketch, I just started dotting :)
The final is from 2008-2009 and is charcoal.
I hope you enjoy!
Hurray for TBT!
Guys, I have so many older drawings that I can share with you. It has been difficult to decide what to share these past two TBTs and I imagine that will continue. What I have decided on today are two of my charcoal still life projects from my first year of college.
I have always enjoyed charcoal because you can get really dirty using it. Yeah, sure you can use blenders and rags but I've always had a bit more fun when I can use my hands.
I haven't worked with charcoal in a while though because I live in a nice apartment and I DO NOT want to get the mess on the carpet or the walls/doors.
I hope you enjoy and continue to tune in for more post and more art!
It'S tHrOw BaCk ThUrSdAy EvErYbOdY!
It is also my first post on the blog. I hope you are all doing well and staying safe and healthy in this crazy quarantine.
I have to admit that I have had difficulty in the past keeping up with blogs. But I am actively trying to be more involved with my social media platforms and I figured that this would be a good exercise in consistency!
While I will be sharing a lot of items that you can see on my Instagram and Facebook accounts, I will be posting a bit more process work, videos, and other goodies (that may not make it to social media) here. I hope you enjoy!
With that said, let's move on to my FIRST EVER #TBT!
I wanted to give some love to some drawings that have not seen the light of day for quite some time. Today, I am going WAY back to when I was a wee tot. These are roughly from when I was in first or second grade and one of them is me with an imaginary friend who was a fruit vampire lol!
Creating ANYTHING is not easy! It takes years of practice and continuously challenging yourself to do better (not to mention riding out some possibly embarrassing creative phases). I am proud and excited to share my entire journey with you; past, present, and future.
