52 Week Art Challenge: Week 16

Week 16 was all about embracing the messy and trying to loosen up my illustrations. I like tight sketches and clean drawings, so coloring outside of the lines was something new for me. For some reason that messy and imperfect style is something I adore, but struggle with in execution. Baby steps.

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 14

Week 14 finished art for my 52 week art challenge is here with a funky little bouquet. I'm using each week of this challenge to explore new methods, techniques and art styles. This week I wanted to try a new composition with unexpected colors. Trying new methods is the only way we will grow as artists. It's a messy process, sometimes you like what you make and sometimes you don't. And that's ok! It's all part of the journey. I stared at the color on this one for a long time and I'm still not sure it's perfect, but I think that's what I like about it. It has a weirdness that I'm really digging.

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 13

Week 13 is here and it's all about flowers for the month of April. Spring has arrived in Charlotte. The flowers are blooming and there is a thick layer of yellow pollen all over everything. Hopefully some of this rain will help wash it away as the weather continues to warm up. For this week's art challenge, I drew a collection of wild flowers.

Below is my inked sketch. I used a Micron pen to ink over my pencil drawing then scanned and imported it into Photoshop. From there I digitally painted the color and added texture. I'm always partial to the black and white sketches. It's my favorite part of the process. The final version of this design is going to turn into a lovely spring pattern.

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 12

Flamingos for week 12 of my 52 week art challenge! Who doesn't love a giant pink bird?! I definitely do. One day I want to go to Aruba and see them walking on the beach. That sounds so dreamy. 

For this week's art, I started with a sketch and worked in Photoshop to do the color and layout adjustments.

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 10

Week 10 finished art for my 52 week art challenge. I love humming birds so much. 🌸 They are beautiful and really funny to watch interact with each other. We have lots of them that live near by and they are always zipping around and chirping at me. They zoom around me in circles, probably warning me to move on, but I can't help but laugh. They are fiercely territorial and will fight off anyone that gets in the way of their next meal, you know, in the cutest/tiniest way possible. For such small birds, they sure do have the courage of lions.

I created this week's art first with a sketch on paper then I inked the design with a Micron pen, as usual. After that I digitally painted the design with the Procreate app on my iPad. From there I took the piece into photoshop to adjust the layout and do the finishing touches. I love this one so much. It's going to be added to my spoonflower shop very soon.

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 9

The weather is starting to warm up here in Charlotte and I can hear the birds chirping outside my window. We're starting March off right with this month's theme: Birds! My personal favorite. 

I created this week's art first with a sketch on paper, then I inked the design with a Micron pen. After that I digitally painted the design with the Procreate app on my iPad. I really love working on the iPad, it's so much fun and it really speeds up the process.

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 8

Feeling pretty good about getting this one out on schedule. I'm currently in sunny Los Angeles at Papercamp learning all about stationery boss lady stuff. I'll be back in the studio on Monday to tell you all about it. For now, let's take a look at week 8 of my 52 week art challenge. For my last house, I decided to make a portrait of literally my last house. This is our first home together as a married couple back in Michigan. We are in the process of selling it, it will only be ours for another week or so. Onto new adventures, including March's theme: Birds! 

I created this one in Photoshop, using Kyle T. Webster's texture brushes

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 7

The houses continue! Week 7 is coming at you with a sweet little European-inspired town. Makes me want to start planning a vacation. Speaking of vacations, I'm getting ready to head out to Los Angeles for Papercamp. I was the lucky winner of a scholarship to attend and I really couldn't be more grateful or completely excited. That's not really a vacation, but it's going to be just as good. The houses will continue next week then we move onto March's theme: Birds! (How is it almost March already?!)

Join me in a 52 week art challenge!
52 week art challenge

I'm starting a 52 week art challenge and am inviting you to join me!

With the objective to build a better portfolio, the challenge is to create one new piece of art each week. Each month will have a different theme, so that at the end of the year we'll all have 12 new collections with a total of 52 new pieces. Sounds pretty good, right? It also sounds extremely possible to me. And that's the point. It has to be reasonable, otherwise when life gets hectic, it won't get done. So spend as little or as much time as you can on these, just make sure it fits your schedule. 

I'll be posting my art here and also on Instagram every Friday. Follow along with me @jaymesloan 

To join the challenge, all you need to do it create your art and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #spankysartparty so that we can all see what everyone is creating. That hashtag requires some explaining, but that is a story for another day. So for now, let's just run with it. 

Remember, create a piece that's true to you. Let your imagination run wild. You can draw anything you want within each theme. And, most importantly, think about each month as a collection so that at the end of the month, you're art has a cohesive look to it. Pinterest is an excellent place to get some inspiration. 

January: House Plants
February: Houses
March: Birds
April: Flowers
May: Cities
June: Gardens
July: Farmers Market
August: Lettering
September: Coffee & Tea
October: Travel
November: Cooking
December: Pets

Ready. Set. Go! I can't wait to see what you create.

P.S. If you plan to join the challenge, please leave a comment with your Instagram name so I can follow you.
