No art of my own to share,
so i thought i'd share a few
of my inspirations.
Andy J. Miller
His work always makes me smile.
You can find him here.
Her Silly Drawing class was my first on-line class
and it was so much fun.
Her class was a wonderful reminder
that we all take ourselves (and drawing!) far too seriously sometimes.
Check out these fun drawings from her book,
Have you ever seen a cuter elephant?
Create a little clay animal and draw him.love how she focuses on the fun of drawing
and not on drawing a perfect anything.
look at all these fun little pen portraits
and below, the colorful portraits!
Our personalities are all so different,
why would our ART all be the same?
Don't you love this variety?
Her book has great drawing techniques
that are anything but boring.
These little creatures were made from sidewalk cracks.
Yup, tracing sidewalk cracks
and then finding little animals in them somewhere...
imagination at its best.
Drawing should never be boring
so i loved Carla's class.
You can find her here.
Need i say anything else about this man?
The fucking king of sketchbooks.
Well, i will say that he's hosting
the Sketchbook Skool this spring
and i'm in!
You can find out all about it here.
Check it out.
Watch the video.
Join in the fun.
Another favorite of mine:
Love this girl's art & imagination.
You can find her and her lovely creations here.
i love how fragile, soft and strong
her paintings are - all at the same time.
Aaahhh... so much inspiration here.
Beautiful artwork, journal pages, photos, you name it.
Feel the love.
Find her and her work here.
These simple little illustrations and words
say so much, don't they?
Things like this always find their way
to my heart
more than a high priced piece of framed art.
You can find Lisa's work here.
and if you need more inspiration,
here's a list of questions by the UBER talented & happy soul
that could help kick you and your life into high gear.
Find the list here
and let yourself fly.
There's pressure enough in the world
without imposing it on ourselves, right?
Have fun with this.
It's not a fucking exam, it's inspiration.
i hope you find the time
to visit some of these
and that you like what you see.
i'll share more later.
But for now, dreamland is calling me...
oh, almost forgot.
For those who are interested in figure drawing
but can't make it to a live class,
check out this website.
You can pick what you want to draw
and set your own time limit.
Remember, you're not looking for perfection
(especially if you're doing a standard 30 sec drawing!)
you're practicing your skills!
Besides, you are ALL artists already.
Some of you just don't know it yet. ;-)
nighty night, Munchkins.
