Day 136 – May 16th

World Drawing Day ! 

You’d think this one would be a cinch, having a BFA and pursuing an Art Therapy Diploma. But alas, I too fall victim to I-Don’t-Know-What-To-Drawitus.

I hemmed and hawed for quite some time before just giving in to drawing Beyonce from the Formation video (which I’ve drawn before, photos below).

I just love it; her, one of the wealthiest self made women in the world and black,  standing in front of a plantation, flipping off the world.  The hat. The jewelry. The message.

Pure gold

 

So I went for it again. Fuck it. Just a quick sketch with pencil, one hand holding the iPhone to film, the other scratching out the image in a frenzy. Please enjoy and remember

Always stay gracious, your best revenge is paper – Bey
