I’ve been neglecting to post, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been super busy working on lots new things. In April I decided to begin a 100 day challenge. This was a fun and challenging experience. I learned a lot about my style, preferences and work habits. Although it was a wonderful experience I’m excited to say today is the 100th day and I’m happy to take a little break from pattern making and regroup. So, here’s what I’ve been up to the past 100 days.
Here’s my assignment for week four of MATS Home Decor. The focus this week was on ceramics and hand drawn typography.
The focus for week three’s assignment was glass and patterns. I had so much fun creating lots of new patterns and thinking of ways they could be used in home decor.
Here’s my final piece from week two of Make Art that Sells Home Decor. This week the focus was on fabric. I’m a little disappointed with how my mock-ups look because I put a lot of detail into each individual piece of art and most of it gets lost once I reduce everything to fit on my presentation page. It was still a really fun week and I so happy I’ve been able to dedicate so much time to making new art.
I finished this awesome piece of wall art for MATS part A. This assignment was a more challenging than I expected, but I good love a challenge and I’m happy with the result.
I haven’t had a lot of time for photography lately but here are some early winter snapshots. I just love all the sparkle in these photos.
I’ve been neglecting my posting because I’ve been super busy making new work for the Make Art that Sells courses. The Home Decor course started last week and I’m excited to share my first project. The assignment was to create metal home decor pieces based upon a trend theme. I chose Farm. Although I’m never completely satisfied with my final, I’m learning so much and having a lot of fun at the same time.
I finished up the latest Make Art that Sells assignment. The challenge was to create a cover to go along with the children’s story The White Cat. I’m really enjoying watching my style develop with each assignment and I had so much fun drawing the type and characters. Although, after spending some time looking at the final piece I’ve become overly critical and see a lot of things I would change if I were to do the assignment again. I suppose that means I’ve learned a few things which is always good.
I spent a long time obsessing over this assignment, but I finally finished my second Make Art that Sells project. The assignment was to illustrate a series of plates for the Home Decor market. I’m loving this class so much. I can actually see my work evolving.
I’m so excited to beginning Lilla Roger’s course Make Art that Sells Part A. The first assignment was to create a bolt fabric collection inspired by vintage kitchen containers and pasta. This was so much fun to create and I learned a lot in the process. Now on to home decor.
