This past Saturday, A Little Known Shop hosted their 2nd annual Day of the Dead and Halloween event! I've been lucky to be part of a couple of their events, and both times have been an exceptional experience.
I had a chance to sit next to Chrissy Mahuna at the artist tables. She had a couple of these AMAZEBALLS needle-felted sculptures on display. Needless to say, I felt awed, and inspired, and a whole lot of inadequate. :P
As promised, here are a few in-progress shots of "Dame de Chat". Kudos to those who get the joke...
It's been a really long time since I've done something fully traditional. I've missed my graphite pencils.
I'm quite happy with the results. The watercolor graphite was a little out of my comfort zone, but I kind of like the unpredictable nature of it. It was a good challenge to try to manipulate it since I don't usually work with water-based mediums that often.
And the final product framed! :) I didn't get a close-up of it on the wall, but I did get an awesome pic with some faboo people. (Not pictured because I don't know how they would feel about a public blog...)
I know I am surrounded by amazing people. I'm grateful for it every day. But it always surprises and humbles me to think that they think of me the same way. <3
Here's to a great rest of the week~!!
