Hawaiian Airlines is a big reason why my friends out in Hawaii are able to make the massive Pow! Wow! mural festival happen each year. Each year the airline covers the flights of many of the world’s best artists for the event, and recently they invited artists to put their work all over the runway. This really illustrates to me the way the Pow! Wow! organizers have grown their event in a few short years; it’s the product of building lasting relationships with people and companies, making sure everyone benefits. If you’re organizing an annual event you could learn a lot from the way they’re going about things.
Watch the video below of the Hawaiian Airlines ground service vehicles getting the Pow! Wow! treatment. I’m already looking forward to February!
This week our sponsor is once again Craftsy which provides resources for creatives in the form of videos and tutorials. It’s been nice to find a sponsor that’s a good fit for what I’m trying to do with Booooooom; making art accessible.
Craftsy is offering a Free Figure Drawing class that teaches you the basics; things like blocking in, contour lines, and methods for describing light and shadow. If you skipped art school altogether this is worth checking out if you want to pick up some fundamentals. The best part being it costs nothing.
If you want, sign up for the free Figure Drawing class.
Drawings and paintings by Kelowna, British Columbia-based artist Tyler Keeton Robbins. I met Tyler this past week and he is the real deal – insanely talented and extremely friendly (the best combination). He is pretty unknown at this point but his first solo show “Weak Stimuli” opens on October 3rd at Catalog Gallery, so I’m sure that will change pretty quick. If I had to pick an emerging artist to watch, this is the guy.
Peep lots more of Tyler’s beautiful work below. (And come to his show!!!)
