Super excited to share the first Gay Icon portrait commissioned by Kalda.
Kalda is the first dedicated LGBTQIA+ mental health community support platform. So excited to be working with them and now they’ve shared this I can too!
I have more to come that I’m finishing off watch this space :D
This portrait style Ive used started bc I wanted to challenge myself by using one brush and no blending. The only change is the opacity and size. I was getting a bit overwhelmed with portraits and caught up in realism and someone liked the style enough to want more. I did add a touch of sparkle using a second brush to this one to make the sequins dazzle to finish it off. I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

Dear Young Artist ...💖
I want to talk to you all about something, I hope you’re reading this. 👀
-I want to let every young artist out there know to Keep creating, never let your doubt take over what you create. Listen to that art drive, the drive that wants you to keep learning new things, to keep experimenting, to keep thinking of ideas, to keep your body moving, to keep wanting to do more. Just create whatever you feel good about an idea.
Just remember, “NEVER LOSE YOURSELF, UNLESS IT’S IN YOUR ARTS. “ ✨
Create what you like, share it, inspire many even yourself.
-Create a world you want to show.⭐
Remember” Art is a Journey, Just like life is a journey. “
Always remember why you started drawing in the first place. Don't give up even if you feel lost, feelings come and go. Art stays even when you go.
-Thank you for reading!
