Am I the only one who is a little disappointed with the very small amount of fan art they showed on the 1D Day live stream? It’s just that they made such a big challenge out of it and there are so many talented artists out there. They looked at the feed for half a second. And what about the stuff submitted beforehand? I just think people put a lot of effort into it. Maybe it’s just because I’m an artist…
Hi! Do you know any other art blogs besides yours cus' i really wanna follow more, if so could you please make a list of them thank you. :) + your art is amazing btw and sometimes I can't tell them apart from a real photo aha
aw thank you little mango!! ♥
i assume you mean other 1d fanartists? because i know quite a few in fact:
I saw a picture of your workspace and it is awesome! What is the name of the tablet or equipment that you are painting directly on the screen with the pen? I hope you get lucky with One Direction. Rooting for you because you are so much talented! Thank you already for your attention and answer.
I’m up all night to get lucky… Tududu. Ok, yea, I’m kidding.
The equipment I’m using is a Wacom Cintiq 24HD. It’s the most important piece of equipment I own.
It always feels a little bit silly to me to say that a band has changed my life. Especially now that I’ve recently turned 26. But, it’s true. One Direction have significantly altered my life this year. Because of them I’ve gained friends, respect, appreciation, and a whole lot of inspiration. I want to thank the lads. Before I ask for you help, let me explain:
I’m an artist. I’m also disabled, in a wheelchair, and I’m very much restricted in what I can do physically. Art is the only thing in the world that makes me forget that I am in a wheelchair. It makes me forget that my legs don’t work, that my spasm shows in every single part of my body, that everything is so much effort. When I paint, there is none of that.
My paintings usually get a few likes on Facebook; maybe a retweet or two on Twitter and a few reblogs on Tumblr if I’m lucky. Until I painted One Direction. I can’t begin to tell you how it made me feel when I posted One Direction art on Twitter and Tumblr and out of every corner came kind comments, praise, flattery and all the support I never got when I was a teenager. To get such an enthusiastic, warm, excited, unbelievable response my art, is just… incredible.
I would love to get a chance to thank One Direction for this, and to give back, by giving them my art. Because there is nothing more rewarding than being able to give art to the people depicted. I was wondering, Internet, Directioners, if I could once again count on you. I am going to see One Direction twice on their arena tour, once in London and once in Amsterdam. Now, you may understand that I can’t just camp out somewhere so I can give my art to them. I need somewhere more accessible. The only chance of that happening, is if my story/my art gets noticed by One Direction, or someone close to them so that maybe I get two minutes of their time at one of their shows.
So I’m asking you, Internet, to help me to try and get it seen, by tweeting, trending a hashtag, reblogging, e-mailing my story to a lot of people (or just the right ones). It would mean the world to me.
Just in case you were wondering what my One Direction art looks like:
So, if you wanna help out, that would be amazing!
What I’ve found to be really helpful is:
Reblog as text instead of link (doing a link now since I want you guys to see this part)
Add tags that are 1D related OR add instructive tags so people will know what to do with this post
Tweet to the 1D update accounts. There are many. I feel like I’ve bothered them too much already, so you can bother them on my behalf?
Tweet to One Direction’s family. But be nice. I’m sure they get a lot of tweets
Tweet to 1D’s management? Tweet to Simon Cowell? :o
Ask big Twitter accounts to retweet
Ask big Tumblr accounts to reblog
Get in touch with me because I LOVE YOU. (not related to this post neccessarily ;))
Update: Yesterday, I e-mailed a version of this to Modest Management. I’m not very hopeful, though, but you never know, right? You guys are welcome to make a plea on my behalf with them, too ;)
Which of my artworks should I turn into prints on my wall?
Check my art tag and tell me. I can turn mostly anything in there into a print. These are also for sale. So let me know if you’re interested in any prints, say, for One Direction art, or any of the other stuff!
I currently have my Audrey Hepburn print framed and all I need to do is hang it on my wall.
