Portrait of the Day

In my pursuit to create a new piece everyday, I’ve gotten a little sloppy with any sort of story telling I may have been going for. However, I am trying to find time to just create something.

Done in Procreate App for IPad.

I can’t stop.

I seriously can’t stop playing around with Procreate for IPad.

This is a 1 hr portrait I did of Michael Rose of mademistakes.com. He is a truly talented digital artist I have been following on Instagram for some time now.

As embarrassed as I am to admit this, I just today fell in love with Procreate app for iPad.

I had been drawing and sketching in a number of free and paid applications for some time now. I had downloaded Procreate and it sat on the back burner for months. Out of sheer boredom, I gVe it another go. Love it!

This digital painting was inspired by Kasey K’s (of Cauliflower Kids Clothing) niece.

Doodle-a-Day

20131107-120621.jpg
A few months ago I started taking part in Rhianna Wurman’s Doodle-a-Day project. At the beginning of every month, you are supplied a list of topics, corresponding with days.

Today’s topic was “Fresh”. (My doodle is above.) it’s just a fun little way to keep your mind creating, and for me, it’s a nice way to take a break from commissioned work.

To see more about this fun project, you can visit Rhianna’s instagram @ellolovey. You can also check out my daily drawings and doodles at @chrissyjoxyz.

Kettlepot Tracks

To my delight, his week I’ve been featured on Kettlepot Tracks Art on the Hill.

I absolutely love what they are doing over there. The husband and wife team invite independent musicians and bands to their home just outside of Philadelphia, where they record live tracks and videos for their blog. They also feature visual artists, weekly.

If you’d like to check out my little feature, that can be found here.
