Most people may think that colored pencils are a part of childhood, but these artists are proving that fact to be wrong. Their styles are quite different from each other which only shows the diversity of art you can create with something as simple as pencils.
Inspired to try it out yourself?
A throwback to one of the drawings I did in college that really kickstarted my career. 🙊 It’s always amazing to look back at a specific drawing and think about what your life was like then and how far you’ve come. 💕 I’m so grateful for all of your support along the way, it means the world to me. 🌎 ALSO, I’ll be able to share part one (there’s like four parts, lol😂) of the super exciting top secret stuff I’ve been working on with Prismacolor soon!! AND I started a very big project that’s the most surreal job I’ve ever had. I can’t wait till I can post about it! Trust me, once you know you’ll understand my silence on here lately. I hope you all have an amazing week!💖
This colored pencil drawing I did a little while back is pretty accurate to my life right now, lol. 😂 A little chaotic while I’m moving and busy with all sorts of creative projects coming up. 🤔🎨✍🏼 I apologize for falling silent lately, an impromptu move and work have chipped out of my schedule this month.. BUT I’ll be posting new work very soon. ALSO, don’t think for a second I’m not doing a holiday print sale and giveaway! 🎁 Love you guys! Have a great week 💃
