As part of a big Kickstarter project I drew an incredible 1 portrait every day for 1 year! Those who supported the project had the opportunity to be one of the “days” in the 365 days and have their own unique personal portrait drawn…. Well, 365 days have zipped by and it’s hard to wrap my head around what has just happened!!
First of all, it’s been an absolute privilege drawing personal portraits for the amazing people that took part. I loved hearing stories of who was being drawn and why – some very emotional and touching, some fun and interesting, and all of them unique and lovely in their own way. I’m so thankful to everyone who took part.This project has taught me a lot (and continues to teach me as I still have many paintings, an e-book, and a DVD to finish!). Drawing every day without fail was not an easy feat. It took a lot of hard work and dedication and as with everything there were some benefits and challenges…

I recently completed a piece for an exciting upcoming exhibition called Painted Sound, a project curated by Ixie Darkonn & Alexandra Mazzanti (Dorothy Circus Gallery) that opens at Flower Pepper Gallery in Pasadena later this month. Inspiration for each piece came from my go-to inspiration… MUSIC! Artist’s chose a song, painted their hearts out, and wrote about how and why the song inspired them. The painting images / descriptions from the 46 artists taking part will exhibit AND be made into a small book coming out later this month (will keep you posted about that!).
Here’s my piece…

When I started DRAWING A DRAWING 365 (www.DrawingADrawing.com) I had no idea how fans would react to my lofty ambition to take on 365 daily portraits, dozens of drawing & painting commissions, and a full-length tutorial all in the span of 1 short year! Well…
This has been an absolute dream. There are no words to express my gratitude for all of the support I have received so far. I have a lot of work ahead of me and I can honestly say that I’ve never been so excited to create art in my life! I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow throughout this exciting process, and share my journey and the beautiful things that are sure to come out of it with those who are interested.
For those just joining… I am drawing 1 portrait every day for 1 year to help fund a full-length drawing/painting tutorial via Kickstarter*. Those who support the project have the opportunity to be one of the “days” in the 365 days and have their own unique and meaningful personal portrait drawn.
In appreciation of all of the love & support I’ve received from this project…
To give you a glimpse of what 365-pledgers (and portrait WINNERS) have to look forward to, I’ve created an example of what one of these sketches will look like along with a time-lapse video of the making-of.
*Kickstarter is a platform for artists to showcase and raise funds for their creative projects. It allows fans the opportunity to help bring the ideas they choose to life. The best part is that in return for a pledge, backers get cool rewards… in my Drawing a Drawing 365 project this includes prints, DVDs, personal portraits, even an e-book sharing what I’ve learned to help fellow artists launch projects of their own.
