Family Portrait Commission

My boyfriend and I just signed up for the Chalk the Block event in our city! I am so excited to collaborate with him and create a chalk piece for people to enjoy! That is happening September 17-19, so I will definitely keep you guys posted if I come up with some thumbnails of our piece.

I had the opportunity to do these fun portraits for this cute little family!
These were done in acrylic on watercolor paper. I had a lot of fun playing around with layering and making the acrylic look like watercolor in some spots.

p.s... the annoying white border around the pictures is from Instagram... I will definitely get rid of that in the future haha.

Vacation was fun.... I drew some beach babes! 
It was seriously so much fun. But I am back to real life now, so I wanted to share a couple little doodles I did on my trip. I have a few pages I drew in on my trip that I will show next time. By that time I will hopefully be done with the current commission I am working on, too!


I also was commissioned by my friend to draw a picture of her dad for Father's Day, so I thought I would share that too! It was done with sumi ink and acrylics. I had a lot of fun messing around with a new technique for this piece!
Anyways, there is not much new besides I am cracking down on all of my commissions, starting work on my BFA show (I graduate in a year!), and then figuring out what my drawing will be for Chalk the Block! Should be a fun time. Art is the best thing.
