This is Austin, my studio assistant. For the past year, he's helped me keep my studio up and running—everything from mailings to website updates. Austin is the absolute best. Now he's helping me prepare the surfaces I'm using for the window display. (Canvases and foamcore board.) #JJKEssentialsWindow @essentialscolette
In college, our painting teachers would set up elaborate still lifes filled with white cloth. I'll never forget how bewildered I was to learn that there could be multiple colors found in white and that there could be warm and cold shades of white. I bring that lesson into my illustration work. Here, I am laying down a cold, blue white for an under layer of a character. #JJKEssentialsWindow @essentialscolette
