Wow...it's been more than 2 years since I last posted on this here blog. Where does the time go?
Well, it matters not at this point. What does matter is that I'm back and I hope you'll rejoin me in my artistic endeavors!
It's been quite some time since I last did an art challenge so I decided this would be a good month to do a 30 day one. Since late last year, I've found myself making patterns and really loving creating repeating patterns that I've had printed onto fabric via Spoonflower and then crafting them into tea towels and aprons. My Etsy shop is up and running now with a wide selection of towel patterns if you want to check them out! www.artistkierstan.etsy.com
Anyway, back to the challenge at hand...since I really enjoy making patterns (I've been learning how to use Photoshop to make them easier to create), I've been doing a bunch of ink drawings that I can scan, edit and paint in Photoshop. I've really gravitated toward food illustrations so it make sense that my first 30 day challenge would be a sushi one. So, 30 days of sushi coming at you! I'll draw a piece of sushi by hand with ink and then paint it using Photoshop. I'm posting on instagram (@artistkierstan) and I'll post them here, too. It'll be good to get back into blogging practice! I may try to make some videos or something along the way to show my painting in progress but no promises (I haven't totally figured out the software yet...).
Ok, so here's Day One: Amaebi Nigiri
