This short film was made by Jeff Chiba Sterns. He's the guy who also created the sharpie commercial with all the post it notes that made the words "Marry Me" if you know what I'm even talking about?? Anyways, I was really drawn to this video because I really admire how something so simple as post it notes can create such a unique story. I also love how he put major events in between his everyday to do list. It makes you think twice about all the things happening around you that you don't even realize happens. You can find more of his short films on youtube. Jeff Chiba Sterns people!

My friends mom commissioned us to snazz up some old chairs for her kindergarten room. So we set out some time, blasted the music, and sat in her garage, painting for hours. Note to self-Bring knee pads while kneeling on a hard cement floor next time! Even though your knees would get sore sometimes, it was still so much fun painting themes from books we grew up with. My friend painted two chairs with Herold and the Purple Crayon, and the other with peanuts. I painted Where the Wild Things Are, and I'm currently working on The Hungry Caterpillar.

I was looking at artists on youtube and one of my favorite people I found was Igor Kazarin! It's just intriguing watching him create dry brush paintings that look more like photographs than drawings! This year I think I'll try this technique. I'm sure it's very time consuming and difficult but I love to try new things! check out his youtube channel- PortraitDrawing's
