Behind the scenes

Ever wonder where inspiration for a project comes from?

Inspiration for one of the drawings in a recent outreachproject came from the project 
365 Masquerades by Gisela [Swedish artist, musician and art educator]
You can read all about this great project here:

Below is the illustration done from a portrait from the project. All images on the 365 site are copyrighted and may not be reproduced without permission. Gisela kindly granted permission.

Take a few moments to check out the project from the link above.
