Art Prompt: black history month
Materials: poster board, Copic markers, Sharpie, acrylic paint
Thoughts: This was my contribution to the Black History Month bulletin board at the Women’s Center of Eastern Connecticut State University. It will be on display all February along with facts, words of wisdom from black leaders and history-makers. We may even keep it up through March, since that is Women’s History Month.
By now you’ve probably noticed I’ve fallen behind on my art prompts. I think I bit off more than I could chew! Having been hired at a second job, and with the multiple snow storms causing problems, my spare time became very limited.
Sadly, I have to take a break from posting doodles. I want to thank you all for your support through this. I’m bummed I was not able to keep up, but this has sure been a learning experience. Maybe when things calm down a bit, I can jump into a different art challenge such as Inktober. For now, I hope you enjoy the rest of my art doodles and sketches. Thanks!
Art Prompt: inspirational quotes
Materials: Micron pen, card stock
Thoughts: During the MLK Day of Service, I helped the Women’s Center staff make cards to be given to victims of domestic violence. I love doing hand-lettering lately, and thought it would be great to stylize some inspiring and uplifting quotes. The cards were a 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 has increased in popular as of late. It makes for a fun design experiment.
