6 Stages of my drawing challenge/bender (2016 v 2017)

When you set yourself a challenge like, a 30 day or week challenge, I think it’s safe to say the last thing you’re thinking about is “what will I learn from this” rather… “what the f have I gotten myself into”.  At the end of the day, a challenge is a challenge but for anyone looking for some extra work for themselves and to test things out in a less serious way - a challenge is perfect for you. Set yourself a challenge not for perfection, but to grow and learn and surprise yourself with what’s possible and breaking limits.

It’s amazing how much progress we make on anything we work hard on… 8 years ago today I saw my granddad for the last time, tomorrow would be his birthday and the day after he passed - My granddad played a huge role in my life, and still does.

Next up we have Aries - featuring two present and past legends, Lady Gaga and Heath Ledger. This was a piece very close to my heart (more than most) and something that will come up during this series for the year with a few others.. I had a very strange encounter with Ledgers passing and hit me very hard. This is piece is inspired by the fire in both Gaga and Ledger - it's speaks to rebellion, passion and their very raw, unapologetic personalities.

Welcome to the Jungle

I have finally (FINALLY) finished my Frida inspired piece. This piece was the perfect example of progress and learning. Not only did I start this piece entirely different but had 2 attempts before completely scrapping it and rebuilding until it felt right. I couldn't let creating this piece go after researching Frida, I decided not to take the defeated route and rework the inspiration.

Beyond excited to finally show you this next piece - mainly because it's completely inspired by my homegirl Ecca Vandal and starring RiRi. This was a piece celebrating strong women, experimentation and COLOUR. The end result is raw and (I feel) sits perfectly inline with both ladies killing it not only in their industry but specifically their genre.
