Some beautiful work by artist Xana Kudrjavcev-DeMilner. More below.
This week our sponsor is once again Craftsy which provides resources for aspiring artists via 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; make art accessible.
Craftsy is offering an eGuide on Perspective Drawing that teaches you the basics of one-point, two-point, and three-point perspective. It also covers dividing space and drawing ellipses. If you didn’t go to art school, this is an easy way to pick up some fundamentals. The best part being it costs nothing.
If you want, you can download the free Perspective Drawing eGuide.
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!!!)
