Happiest 26th of May, and happiest 26th day of the Daily Drawing Challenge! Let’s continue spreading the love we introduced yesterday with this beautiful heart-shaped bloom, the anthurium. Don’t forget to share your love right back to us by showing us your creations!
Hey-o! Just popping in to see how you’re doing with this month’s book club book, The Artist’s Mother. It’s more of a visual catalogue of pictures and paintings by some of the most iconic artists, but it goes into some details about their mothers.
From here on out we’ll be featuring a quote that you can print off for free (download here) from each Book Club in the middle of each month as illustrated by a guest illustrator. One of my favorite illustrators, Jordan Sondler, is kicking it off with this one:
“The eyes of a mother are the first mirror we encounter. A good mother provides a true reflection.”
We’ll be going over the book at the beginning of next month and introducing the book for June then as well.
Who doesn’t LOVE love? I love love, my neighbor loves love, Day 25 of our #larsflowerchallenge loves love, and this beautiful bloom loves love. For this beautiful spring day, we wanted to introduce to you the flower of love. If you really want to step out and try something different, learn about the flower that literally translates as a flower of love: the agapanthus.
Help us spread all this love by learning to draw the agapanthus, the flower of the day. And don’t forget to show us your work! Keep up the great work!
Feeling fierce? So is today’s flower from the Daily Drawing Challenge, the snapdragon! These petite little blooms may have a frightening name, but in real life, they are graceful, colorful, and quite lovely.
Day 24 is not too late for you to join in the #larsflowerchallenge. Watch the video below from our new YouTube Channel to learn why this flower is named the snapdragon, what is symbolizes, AND how to draw this fierce little beauty.
