Long time, no post! I do apologize. I haven't done very much this past month or two :'D
So, I'm in semester 2, now. And my latest project is Artists' Journal, SpaceRace Ceramics... and now an essay. So, my next few weeks could be a little hectic! Wish me luck! I'll chat about my ceramics and essay later, I want to show you all some artist inspiration. Something that may help me to develop my artistic journal.
The project Artist Journal pretty much speaks for itself. I have to record my daily life. Depending on what I choose. I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place, but I think I may well have just the idea. I may need to work on it and adjust it to my needs though, and some confirming... a second opinion by none other than my tutor! And maybe a few others, too.
I found most all of the below artists on www.book-by-its-cover.com
It's a nice website showcasing some new, uprising artists.
First up is - Ana Montiel!
I really like her style, and I love her watercolour works. So beautiful, and colourful.
|This is a cover for a perfume I do believe.|
|"Breathe Deeply" - Fantastic use of water colour!|
She utilises her abilities adequately! Her pattern work is eye capturing, I'm not one for pattern, much, but I do like her work.
Next artist: Becca Stadtlander
She has a unique, and detailed style usually using paint.
|I quite like her method of studying |
and recording imagery. The detail in the flowers are stunning!
Artist: Lou Medel

Artist: Alex Meyer
Hopefully, you would have seen something you like, and perhaps like the artist and follow their work. I do like detailed, sketch like art, I suppose it's more my style. In comparison I also LOVE realism art, and have attempted a few pieces myself.
My project for ceramics is to do with the space race. I have to come up with a final piece made of clay. Basically I have chosen to make a solar system orrery. Like this-
It would have been awesome if I could have made it out of brass, copper etc - metalwork making, unfortunately it had to be done using ceramics. I believe my idea may well work, but we have yet to see after it's done baking. ;)
And now for my essay. I haven't written one in a year, and that was 1000 words. Now it's 2000 words. It shouldn't be too hard, since I've had some practice and I do actually like writing so, I will give it my best shot!
I get to choose any artist... person... like. Don't know who to choose, yet. Best thing is, s/he can be from any era! :3
That's it for tonight's blog, I sure do hope you stuck around to read this. And enjoyed it!
