James Webb Space Telescope NASA and Inktober

I feel so honored to be selected as part of a small group of artists visiting NASA Goddard tomorrow to view and be inspired by the James Webb Space Telescope. I’ll be doing a painting and sketches of JWST from life, and then creating some additional illustrations about the experience. You can look for the hashtag #JWSTart on Instagram and Facebook tomorrow to see what the artists in attendance are creating! I am so excited about this incredible opportunity. http://www.jwst.nasa.gov/

“Inktober” and “Drawlloween,” the drawing challenges I was participating in on Instagram for the month of October are officially over.  I really enjoyed the experience of quickly creating something new each day (or in some cases, planning ahead to do the drawings I needed in advance).  I flexed my quick thinking and quick drawing muscles, generating new ideas and new compositions that are exciting and unexpected to me.  I also connected with a lot of new Facebook and Instagram followers by posting new work every day.  I’m hoping to keep the mojo going by choosing a new personal challenge for November- each day, I’m going to work on concept and compositional sketches for a personal picture book interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky.”  You can follow along on Instagram, or check back here at the end of November for a gallery of sketches.

Here are all my Inktober drawings.
