Jenny Morgan’s portraits are stately hypotheticals into the personality of the individual represented. Morgan chooses friends she is not well acquainted with to increase the mysteriousness of the work, but also she sands away slightly at the canvas which puts forth a sense of “digging away” at knowing something. Perhaps like an archaeologist might slowly dust away layers of dirt to discover a long lost treasure. See more of Jenny’s work below:

Isaac Cordal places different miniature statues into his local landscape of Chiapas, Mexico to create an entirely new sense of place once the objects inhabit their chosen situation. Stories develop organically from the objects and, especially with these skeletal versions, take on a metaphorical prowess to the pleasing street art. See more below!
I recently got the chance to sit down and try out a few of Craftsy’s free online classes for myself and they really blew me away. One of those is the exceptional “Figure Drawing: An Essential Guide,” a FREE online class.
The class covers all the basics from blocking your drawing, gesture drawing, contour drawing, light and shadows and even creating custom paper among other things.
As a student years ago I had a great deal of trouble with art school and various art lessons but I found Craftsy’s approach to be so much more accessible than I could have imagined and I really am happy to be sharing it here with you. I truly wish something like this had existed when I was learning art. I feel that Craftsy is certainly an invaluable tool (the use of the lesson never expires by the way) for any aspiring artist or even professional artists who might be looking to brush up on a few skills.
Feel free to get started yourself by heading over to Craftsy and Register for the Free Figure Drawing Class!
