In the last five years, I worked almost exclusively with little children teaching them color theory and basically how to paint.
My love for teaching the subject I love the most, painting, is a dream come true and seeing the response I receive from my kids every class is incredible.
Let me just say that receiving feedback from a child is priceless!
I want to share with you a few sketches drawn under very close supervision :)
(you can see here a selection from the 40 sketches I have drawn in the last 2 months, the rest of them I will keep hidden for now)
Here I am, one year later with a new calendar planned and a big surprise for Vivi’s fans.
Last year all the money I gathered from selling the calendar went to a rescue animal association, and this year I want to do the same.
Inspired by Vivi’s adventures, somebody wrote an excellent short story and kids and adults seem to like my little character a lot.
You can see the rough sketch for the cover here (this is the first iteration, the cover is entirely different right now).
The guardian of the sketches, my sweet Leo <3
… and real feedback from this beautiful little girl <3
She had a lot to say, and she picked August as her month.
I can’t wait to show her what I have sketched for that month :)
Until next time :) (hopefully, I’ll get the hang of it soon and the next blog post will be better )
