Art Prompt: inspirational quotes

Life Photography NegativesArt Prompt: inspirational quotes
Materials: Micron pen, card stock
Thoughts: During the MLK Day of Service, I helped the Women’s Center make cards to be given to victims of domestic violence. I just love doing hand-lettering, and thought it would be great to stylize some inspiring and uplifting quotes. The cards were huge success and some students asked about the process in making them. I think I might develop a workshop at the Center, where students can learn to create some simple hand-lettered messages that they can frame, gift, or keep. With everything becoming more and more computer-generated, the hand-written aesthetic remains popular and makes for a fun design experiment.


Art Prompt: a bound book

Art Prompt: a mystical book bound by chains
Materials: Sharpie  Twin Tip, Copic markers, colored pencil
Thoughts: This was a super quick sketch. I’m very behind on my art challenge. I don’t recommend using a Sharpie Twin Tip markers. It dries out quickly, it’s stubborn to get working, and the ink bleeds when used with Copic markers. I’ll stick to my other pens and markers.
