Ahh I am becoming the worst at updating!! Between being mama to a 6 month old, home renos (photos to come!!) and making baby shoes, I just haven’t had as much time to sit down with the ol' blog!
I do have a few projects that I’m really excited to share! I had the pleasure of doing art this summer with a great group of kids, and some amazing projects were turned out.
The first one that I’ll share is one I’ve wanted to do for a while, inspired by the art of Ryan Berkely. Are you guys familiar with his work? It's awesome. He does amazingly detailed portraits of animals in fancy outfits. I just adore them, and, as you can imagine, kids do too. We did a mini artist study of him, looking at his drawings and his style of art, and then everyone chose an inspiration animal, cartoon, or person to work with. They used ipods to find inspiration photos, and manipulated their subject in a way that it would work perfectly in a suit. They first drew in pencil, then traced with thin sharpie. When they were done, they painted them in with watercolor. They’re too cute!!
I'm going to post some reno pictures soon but for now, I'll leave you all with a picture of my little girl, who is almost single handedly responsible for the demise of this blog.
