CARRIE FISHER, REMEMBERED IN ART

We’re quickly approaching the one year anniversary of the day we lost beloved actress and icon, Carrie Fisher. Those of you that are familiar with my art and illustrations may remember the Princess Leia drawing I did several years ago:   As a result of her passing, sales of my print on Etsy went up and I wasn’t sure how to feel about that.

PHOTOGRAPHING ART

Hello readers! Yesterday I finished my piece for the ‘Altered Paintings’ show that I mentioned in a previous post and I had a lot of fun doing it. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the other artists had to work with and what they’ve ended up with. This was a fun project and definitely a challenging one, especially since it wasn’t even a painting to begin with. As you may recall it was a very sun bleached paper print on {Read More}
