To support fund raising for The Ideal Relationship Project’s Kickstarter campaign, I have decided to start a “Quick Quotes Campaign,” which consists of developing 15 second short videos of the portrait making process, and the subject’s audio and/or audiovisual feedback, if available. These have been pretty popular on Instagram.
Please check out a few of the videos below, and be sure to follow our blog and/or back our Kickstarter for more updates. There is plenty of fun stuff to come!
The following is a process note for Yesbelt Fernendez.
Yesbelt’s portrait popped up when I just happened to be looking to do something a little different stylistically. I did a little research and found some amazing batik patterns that heavily influenced my choice of color and it’s application. The Mandala, I created as a line drawing first. The colors and patterns were created as separate documents, as well. Then I scanned the separate elements into the computer, and manipulated their assembly, digitally. My aim was to create a fun and energetic piece, to match Yesbelt’s open and engaging expression.
Thank you for participating, Yesbelt!
