Last week I read about Michael Nobbs’ Sustainably Creative Blog post about doing an Awesome April Project. It made me start thinking about what kind of project I could do in a short period of time. I have been participating in Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr for three years now, but I want to do something a little different. I would like to do portraits of people from Twitter and Instagram who inspire me on a daily basis. I will draw bloggers and artists, as well as some of my favorite retro models and burlesque performers. I will be drawing them on my iPad but I would also like to do a series of paintings based on the drawings. I will check in from time to time to show my progress. If you have any suggestions for portraits please leave them in the comments. I don’t think I will finish the entire project in April but it is a great jumping off point.
