LifeBook 2013: Fairy Art Mother

Hi all!

I started LifeBook this week with a warm-up assignment to create a fairy art mother. For those not familiar with LifeBook, it is basically a series of online classes by various artists that runs throughout the year. At the end, you bind all of your pages into a book chronicling your year long journey. People join for various reasons. My big impetus was to gain exposure to different mediums, styles, and new ideas. Trying new projects and styles and materials means stepping outside of my comfort zone, and I did just that right of the bat with this warm-up exercise.

I have not drawn a face for years, and fairies are not really my thing. I contemplated just going my own way, but had to gently remind myself this, for me, is about doing things I wouldn’t normally do 🙂 So, this is my fairy art mother. She is here to be positive when I am not during the process of creating the LifeBook. She is already telling me that I need to let go of my worry and just focus on the journey of creating.

I ended up really liking her curly, red hair, and mischievous smile.  She is sassy, quirky, and non-nonsense!

To make this I played with: pencil, watercolor crayons and markers, acrylics, and Sakura gelly roll pens





  1. I think she turned out cute! what a great fairy art mother 🙂

    1. Thanks Kitty! She is growing on me!

  2. She is a very funky fairy Michelle! Too cuuuute!

  3. Great that you’re doing the LifeBook. Looking forward to seeing your work throughout the year! I could’t get my head around doing it this year, but maybe another time. I like your fairy art mother!

  4. Totally love her!
