As a way of saying thank you to those that inspire and/or support my work, I choose someone to draw and feature on my Instagram feed every Friday. The person I choose to paint or draw is always someone that I admire deeply. They range from trendsetters in the design industry, to new friends I’ve met through Instagram, to role models for young women, to my own family members, to treasured, old friends, to cute little ones that I find charming... when it comes to choosing my subjects the sky is the limit, it could be anyone. The fun part about fun sketch Friday, which is now my very favorite day of the week, is the planning that goes on for me behind the scenes. Each week something clicks and once it clicks I start thinking about what I will write about the particular person I will feature...how I will portray them to my world. The absolute best part is when the person I’ve drawn discovers that they have been featured and of course giving them the original portrait of them that I’ve created. To put it simply, I love making the people I love happy! So send in your pics...you just might be next!
