My piece for @riseexhibition , a group show of artwork created using charcoal from the australian bushfires 🌳 the artworks will be auctioned with all sales going to support bushfire relief. i have chosen to give my sale to blaze aid ❀️ my piece is about what it’s like to watch your home burn from far away. it was very surreal to hold a a burnt piece of australia in my hands all the way here in canada.
swipe for a time lapse! and check out @riseexhibition to see the insane lineup of artists contributing. exhibition and auction details will be announced soon!

ps. thanks to everyone who followed my process on stories! πŸ’•

Practice portrait of shokyokusai tenkatsu (1886-1944), a japanese magician 🎩 swipe for zoomies and the original reference photo. how fabulous is her outfit?! a male morning jacket and bloomers was definitely daring for the early 1900s. thank you @georgian_diaspora for posting about this fascinating lady ❀️ i loveeee your profile and wish i could draw everyone you’ve featured!

Quick i’m-so-angry/i-feel-helpless doodle because i can’t do a thing to support the australian bushfire relief other than to donate money, and to spread awareness for the cause. if you can, please spare some πŸ’° to a charity like @redcrossau or @wireswildliferescue (you can find more if you google how to help). this season’s bushfires are unprecedented and heartbreaking and half a billion animals have died and people have lost everything and the prime minister thinks that the cricket is more important than paying firefighters. πŸ™
