Stranger Things Fan Art & Chalk the Block Update

Hey everyone!

So sad to say that my boyfriend and I will not be participating in Chalk the Block this year after all. The event was postponed to this weekend due to a rainstorm last week. Our schedules are just too full this weekend to be able to move anything around at this point. Good news though - we will still be completing our mural piece, but just on paper instead of asphalt. Here is a sneak peek of what we have been working on:

 I will definitely post more updates on my blog once we get some good progress made on the final piece!

In other news, I am going to be participating in a Stranger Things-themed art show on Halloween this year. (Are you all so excited for the second season of Stranger Things?!) Some of you may remember the Eleven piece I did last year...

 ...but for this show, I wanted to create something new!
So I'm currently working on a new piece! Here is the progress so far:

 I won't give away the secret super fun part about this piece quite yet, so keep an eye out for the finished piece on my blog! (& other social media, of course!)

That is everything I have to share with you guys today! I am currently working on some larger projects and trying to get those finished up, so you may notice a lack of artwork. Hopefully I will be able to show you all the stuff I've been working on super soon and just dump it all in one epic blog post!

Thank you! Have a lovely week!

I feel like napping.

Hey everyone! I'm sleepy!

I just have a quick little post for today. I have been super busy with some new freelancing jobs, so I haven't been creating as many personal projects. Once the project is completed though, I will definitely share it with you all here!

Some fun news - My boyfriend Charles and I are participating in Chalk the Block this year! We took last year off but decided that it might be fun to try it again. This is the piece that we did two years ago of Wednesday Addams:

  We have a new piece in the works that we are super excited about! Now we just have to pray that we don't get rained on.

I did this piece last week sometime with some Copic markers. I wanted to try to have it be more muted and earth toned than normal, and it turned out just how I hoped. I always seem to have trouble getting markers to not be super vibrant and fake looking when I do portraits of people, so I was really happy with the results of this doodle.

And finally, here is a cute little doodle of my dog. I love all of the facial expressions he makes and the way his body is shaped - - - its so comical! So I started making silly sketches of him. This one was definitely my favorite!

As always, thank you guys for your continued support! I appreciate you all so much!

Ashley xoxo
