CALL FOR ENTRIES
Hello everyone! The Ladies of Literature project is pleased to announce that we’re beginning work on Volume 2! We’re hoping to make this book even bigger and more beautiful than Volume 1. We’ve invited our Volume 1 veterans to come back to contribute, but we’re looking for even more fresh talent to fill the pages!
For those who don’t know, Ladies of Literature Volume 1 was an illustration anthology that celebrated our favorite female book characters and authors.
This time around, we’re still working with the same premise, but we’re placing a stronger emphasis on illustrations that tell stories. We want well-composed illustrations that showcase exactly why you fell in love with your character or author. Make us want to pick up their stories for ourselves—like the ultimate book recommendation.
The book is going to be Kickstarted to cover cost of printing and compensation for all contributing artists. All artists will get a copy of the book. Any remaining Kickstarter and book sale funds will be donated directly to in-classroom childhood literacy projects via DonorsChoose.org.
(That being said, obviously this is a project that may include copyrighted characters so if we run into legal trouble, we’ll have to shut the whole thing down.)
We’re aiming to have 75 artists in total so if you’re interested in participating, fill out this Google Form with your name and portfolio by AUGUST 31, 2014. We’ll notify our final choices by mid-September. Thank you! So excited to see all of your work!
Ladies of Literature is looking for new artists so you guys should totally fill out the Google doc linked above! Working with Arielle and Janet has always been great and I’m super excited about the 2nd installation!! :D

So the ONLY thing my sister has ever wanted me to draw was Legend of Zelda art, aaaaand it pretty much took me three years to get around to it haha… Much of my middle/high school summers were spent watching her play and being terrified of skull kids/ReDeads/Ganon/moon/LITERALLY EVERYTHING.

Anonymous said: Who are your favorite artists that inspire you the most?
Oh man this is so hard to answer, there’s A LOT of great artists that I really admire. These guys are not only amazing at drawing, but they are also just genuinely sweet and really great people who I appreciate so much. I kept this down to just 16 artists though to keep it from getting way too long, please know that I do follow several hundred others who I equally respect!
Eli and Oli Ceballos
Please check out their work! They’re probably the nicest people I’ve ever met online, I’ve been following most these guys for quite a bit and it’s just been awesome to see their art grow!! :)

Anonymous said: Hello, I has a question about your watercolor sketches you posted, what kind of pen did you use? The pens I have all run when I try to paint over them, or do you just pen over the watercolor when it dries?
Hello! I use micron pens and then paint over the ink, I’ve never had any problems with them messing up the drawing!

Anonymous said: There's so much to adore about your art. I just want you to know that I'm a fan and maybe I won't knock your count up on reblogs and what not but just seeing your progress inspires me to see the same in mine. So thank you. And best of luck in your journey in this world.
I kept this in my inbox because I didn’t know how to respond, but please know that your words mean so much to me! I feel like I’ve been in such a weird art rut and you just absolutely made me feel so much better. Anon, my last batch of drawings was dedicated just to you!!! :)

Boy who finds a strange creature in the woods.
I bought a tiny watercolor set and I’m still super excited about using it!! About two weeks ago I went on an eight day road trip with my sister and one of our closest friends up through northern California, Oregon, and Seattle, WA and I got sooo inspired by all the nature that we passed by! I felt like I could sit in the gardens for hours they were so beautiful.

The second year of school is almost over and I just have one more final to go!!!! I’m going to miss my life drawing class the most, it was one of those classes that I just genuinely loved going to.
The top drawings are from the sketchbook we had to turn in and the bottom drawings are from one of our later life drawing sessions!
