I created this illustration of Princess Leia (disguised as the bounty hunter Boushh to rescue Han Solo) for the Ten Paces & Draw blog’s recent Star Wars character exercise.
Earlier this year, I participated in a one day show/competition at the Hampton National Historic Site in Towson, MD. The Hampton Arts Initiative has put up a website including some of the pieces from the show that are still available.
There is some great work here to look at or buy, including my watercolors from the show.
Also, did you know that I have a Facebook fan page for my portrait work? If you’re on Facebook, you can “like” my page and receive updates in your newsfeed. https://www.facebook.com/JoannaBarnumPortraits
Next week (once I recover from some major dental work I’m about to have), I’ll be announcing a big print sale, so you may want to get your wallets ready for some early holiday shopping. My husband brought home many, many spare mailing tubes from his office…so many, in fact, that I don’t know where to put them. So it’s the “too many darn mailing tubes in my house” print sale. Stay tuned!
Steve of 5finity is going to be auctioning of these and other original sketch cards to benefit the March of Dimes- more info about that as I have it. I’m also on board as an artist for 5finity’s Lady Death Series 2- I’m super excited! I love doing these.
I don’t draw from life enough anymore, so I’m making more of an effort. Here’s a graphite drawing I did of my husband last night:
And a recent commissioned watercolor portrait:
And a recent “quick portrait”:
I’m very excited to have been chosen to participate in this upcoming Light Grey Art Lab show. 78 artists and designers were each assigned a card from the tarot deck to illustrate. The show will be going up this October, with prints of the artwork available online and at the gallery. Stay tuned for more information about the show in Minneapolis and how to buy prints.
My assigned card was the Five of Swords. Of course, I had to use the swords suit as an excuse to draw belly dancers. When I researched the meaning of the card, I found out that it’s a somewhat negative card, which can indicate power struggles and betrayal. So the informal title for my piece is “Upstaged.”
Earlier this year, I did my first ever sketch cards for 5finity Productions. They were for the “Katie Cook: Kitty Ditties & Pretty Ladies” series. I only did eight cards, so I’m a “super rare artist” for the set.
I’m still trying to fully understand how the whole sketch card subculture works! But I’m having fun so far.
I have two Artist Exclusive blanks from this series available for commissions, at $50 each, including shipping.
I’m currently working on a few cards for 5finity’s March of Dimes fundraiser.
A snippet of a larger piece, which you’ll be allowed to see eventually.
I just completed these four elements illustrations for the next GDG show at Flower Pepper Gallery in Pasadena, CA. The theme for the show is the elements, with a 60s flair. I tried to be inspired by the bright colors used in a lot of art and design from the 60s, and wound up setting the four elements in Hawaii.
Special thanks to four of my lovely dance troupe-mates for modeling for this project.
Prints are available!
Thank you to everyone who stopped by the “Maryland My Maryland” opening at TruAx Custom Frames last week.
