52 Week Art Challenge: Week 17

The 52 Week Art Challenge is still going strong. And despite my lack of blogs posts keeping up with it, I'm very happy to say that each weekly piece of art is still being created on time! That in itself is a major accomplishment if I do say so myself. I'm going to play catch-up on blogs posts over the next couple weeks, so get ready for a serious art party on the blog. Nothing bad about that. Let's get this party started.

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 15

Week 15 art for my 52 week art challenge is here with some fun Japanese-inspired flowers. This started out as a pattern design for April's Spoonflower challenge with Sprout Patterns. That design ended up turning into a koi pond of all things, but more on that later. 

This piece was created first in my sketchbook (see below) and then brought into Illustrator for layout and color.

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. 

Hop over to Instagram and use the hashtag #spankysartparty to see what everyone has been working on. We have so many people participating now! And it's not too late to join us. Jump in at any point, it's okay! Just do what you can. You can always go back and catch up later if you want to.
