I’ve been planning for today’s post once again, as this month every Tuesday I’ll be introducing you to another talented and interesting artist.
I am also proudly inching my way forward toward my blog-iversary, and 100th post which guaranteed to be climatic! Pondering what should I do to celebrate? What should I wear? Who should I invite? The brainstorming goes on!
Today, I’d love to introduce Andrea Long Chavez, whom I described last week as the ‘chronic doodler’.
Andrea is an intriguing artist who specializes in illustration and photography; who also uses fashion to express her inclinations for the day.
Over at She Will Dress Herself, Andrea finds new inspiration with in her interactions with people and old places. You can see what she likes to wear and go along for a metro bus ride with her!
She is equally great at drawing people and she has accomplished much in her young career including awards from the Music Center for Photography. Andrea’s silver gelatin prints pictured below were shown at Bergamont Station in Santa Monica, February 2006.
As well, she was awarded the Scholastic Art & Writing Silver Key for her drawing portfolio, 2006. It is no surprise considering her training at California Animation program at CalArts, Ryman Arts Program at USC, and Otis Young Artists’ Studio Arts Program. Her mediums of choice are acrylic paints, sakura pigma micron, dip pen & ink. Commissions are available upon request!
I hope you enjoy her work and blog as much as I do.
Tommorrow, I’ll show you inspiration boards from my interior design meeting! I need your advice, big time.
