Hi Shenanaginists… I am here to introduce a new video series : “Illustrated Girls”.
I am working on a super fun project and I thought it would be a blast to share it and maybe even interact with you on this.
One of my favorite things to do is whimsical illustration. I love to draw something I see and put my own spin on it. I love to create a mixed media painting from the drawings and sketches I create. It’s just fun and I love to get lost in the ideas and the colors and the art supplies.. Like seriously, I am an art nerd.
I have about 20 sketches I am currently working on. It’s a lot. I thought about what I was going to do with it all and I thought, what a cool book this would make and I could bling this sucker up and bind it like this and cover it like that… and that is how this series was born. So the plan is to use several mediums to make these sketches into paintings and then bind and cover them into a book.
I rarely talk in my videos unless I am cutting up or being silly. But I did some explaining in this one, like an intro to the series. Also, if there is any interest in this series, i will make up some kits for this project and start a Facebook page so we can share work and Ideas. So let me know if you have any ideas you want to share.
Oh Did I mention that the video tutorials are free… Yep. I just want to share what I am doing, maybe later you will join me for a class or a retreat… anyhoo….
here is the first video in this series, ” the Sketching of the Winter Girl”
