A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I live and breathe all things art, design, culture and fashion. You'll find me documenting my life in the creative field, endless travels with friends and family and a bit of food.
As you’ve already noticed I’ve been drawing YG portraits all year and when I was suddenly asked to draw fruit in May, I was a little intimidated by the idea of it. Fruit!? Wha!?? I didn’t think anyone would EVER ask me to draw fruit. Not gonna lie, the last time I drew fruit was in year 7 (roughly 8 years ago?) when we had to draw still lifes in our weekly art classes. Hmm..so…fruit huh? Why not. Challenge accepted. I only do commissions suited to my own colorful style of art so there’s no way I’m backing down on this. I didn’t start the drawing till a couple months later due to my work schedule with uni, other commissions and freelancing. But I clearly remember the day I started the drawing, I made my way down to Eckersleys to buy paper and 25 individual Prismacolor pencils: about 5 shades of yellows, oranges, browns, greens and reds. Then on the same night I began to sketch out the fruit, one by one.
The results? Better than I expected! They’re meant to be two separate pieces but they also can be joined. I decided to share this particular artwork because people are wondering “why the sudden change in subject matter Mon?”. I get requests other than K-pop portraits, diversity is great! Just as long as it’s in my style. This artwork is made specially for Wicked Twisted Froyo . Anyone in Swampscott MA should go get their hands on some freshly made froyo, the store’s now open to the public.
