I love this. Chandler O’Leary is my hero. Her illustrations are gorgeous but that’s not why I love her 20 years of road trip sketching. It is because she reminds me that art can be personal, private, on an individual scale, and fun. It’s much less intimidating when you realize that “art” doesn’t equal The Renaissance Masters, but is simply a powerful human tool to reveal our soul. I try more when I stop expecting technical perfection and just go with the making of it. You can too. Get out some colored pencils and just start!
