On Liberia's Independence Day this year, I created a new piece of art inspired by the holiday. Last year, I did the same. "Just because." I recorded the process of creating this year's painting, which was done in watercolor over the lyrics of Liberia's national anthem. It can be viewed on Youtube at this [link] and below.
Today, I feel inspired to do a series of paintings connected to each of Africa's 54 nations. I hope to find this project educational, on my part as well as for any viewers and appreciators of the artwork. Make sure you tune in to this page for updates and more information about coming shows, collaborations, and giveaways!
P.S: tomorrow is The Scrap Exchange's deadline to receive mail art for their exhibit, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”. The opening reception will be Friday, August 16 from 6pm-9pm. The piece shown to the left is mixed media (watercolor paint, chalk pastel, ink, collage) mail art, which will be dropped off at the post office today. It is folded into thirds (progress pic) so only two of its sides will be viewed. The gallery shows its front and back.
Hello, hello! It's been one week since I've been working on the illustrations for a soon-to-be published, children's storybook. I met the author exactly three weeks ago while I was at my day-job and I'm grateful for the opportunity to give her the illustrations she desired and to do all the layout designs for her book. I'm very excited and proud of the progress I've made thus far, so I am giving you a sneak peek! I can't show you EVERYTHING, of course, but here's a glimpse of what I've been creating in my free time. Enjoy!
