Hey there!
I’m joining the Folktale Week 2018! 🍁🌟🍄

Rotkäppchen

(Watercolor, Ink and white marker on paper)

I’m copy&pasting the official text and can just recommend everyone to follow the linked accounts and the hashtag #folktaleweek2018 to see lots of great art! 🧡

Here is  Jennifer m. Potter s announcement & the officialprompt list!

“How it works:
On October 29th, we’ll release the prompts. Then for seven days starting November 12th, follow the prompts and create a piece of art. Interpret the prompts any way you wish and with any medium you like.

Use the hashtag #folktaleweek and #folktaleweek2018 to show your work and interact with other artists. The challenge hosts will be pulling work from the hashtag to promote in our stories! At the end, we’ll share our favorites in our feed!

The challenge was created to encourage artists from all around the world to share stories and explore character creation and visual storytelling. We want to see Your bewitching characters and dreamy scenes!

Many incredible artists came together to make this challenge possible. Be sure to check out their profiles for inspiration.”

I chose some German Fairytales, some might not be well-known in the US, so I am curious to see what the others are creating and what you will think about my work! I will use different techniques, so it never gets boring.

At the end of the Folktale Week, I will add all the pictures to an album on my homepage, until then you can follow me on Instagram or Facebook and see my creations there!

So let’s start with “Once upon a time…”,

Yours,     Corinna

Inktober / Drawlloween

art, Art Challenges, Uncategorized

This year I will participate once more in the art challenges #INKTOBER and #DRAWLLOWEEN on Instagram. It’s a personal challenge for everyone that wants to take part where you get a prompt list with 31 words that should be addressed in the artistic work. I chose to combine the two lists of Inktober and Drawlloween to challenge myself. I will only use Pen & Ink on paper and try to make up little stories to go with the illustrations.

Here is the prompt list for #INKTOBER :

I have already so many ideas in my head and I can’t wait to bring them all to paper! I have created an album that I will update with my newest creations!

I definitely encourage everyone to check out the hashtags on social media to see all the great work of other artists.

Let’s ink!
Corinna
