Like anything else, learning how to be resilient requires practice. A sense of humor and willingness to get creative goes a long way, too!
Rest and creativity go hand in hand for us artist types. Finding the balance isn't always easy, but when you do, you'll be hooked!
My illustrated life in quarantine in NYC might have been drawn from my imagination, but most of the elements are, in fact, real!
I enjoyed the Inktober art challenge so much that I even created a How To free-hand ink drawing video for my Inktober 2019 final illustration. Enjoy!
Being away from home last week didn't stop me from working on new illustration projects. Here's a recap of all that's new and fun at Joana Miranda Studio!
Take a look at my new Inktober drawing videos which, since I'm away from home, were done with an improvised drawing table and cell phone holder.
Here's a look at the creation process from pencil rough sketch to finished watercolor for my latest whimsical children's book illustration.
Here are two more cartoon drawing videos showcasing the wonderful line variety I can achieve using my Sailor Fude Nib Fountain Pen. Enjoy!
Inktober 2019 has been the perfect excuse to challenge myself to create freehand drawings in ink. I'm videoing the process for all to see, too!
Currently my favorite fountain pens for drawing are both Fude nib fountain pens. You can see them both in action in these fun video drawings.
