2020 is the year the world will never forget.
Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5
Better days are ahead for us all in Jesus name.
I remember the very first time I saw Kelis, I was in my brothers room watching the Pepsi Chart Show. The video for Caught Out There was playing and my 8 year old self was absolutely transfixed.
I grabbed for my oil pastels and drew her as soon as the video ended. Ive been a fan of hers ever since.
I was only right for her to be the second artist I made a portrait of. Her was a joy to recreate and I love the colour palette.
For a while, I wanted to make portraits of my favourite musicians. Lianne La Havas is definitely one of them an I’ve been a fan since the beginning.
She recently released her new album and its become a firm favourite of mine. One of those albums where you don’t press skip for a single track.
I really enjoyed creating this piece. Lianne’s hair was the most fun to make!
This portrait will be the first of a series. I have so many more artists to get to work on!
Another project I worked on during lockdown is my self portrait. I really enjoyed making it as it’s not often I get to create something for myself to keep.
For reference I used a photo of myself wearing one of my favourite items in my entire wardrobe; a bright orange biker jacket.
I also experimented with a new technique for hair. Rather than cut out one flat piece of paper I wanted to try using multiple layers, just like how my hair is cut in real life. It was a challenge but the end result was better than I could have expected and will definitely be a technique I continue to use going forward.
I bought a set of metallic brush pens a while ago but hadn’t got round to using them correctly.
When the government announced we would be in lockdown I thought it would be a good time to learn a new skill. So I decided to take up hand lettering and modern calligraphy.
