Painting a Vulcan Picture

Jennie Bukowski in Annapolis, Maryland is spending a year Painting a Vulcan Picture (the title of which is inspired by the song Paint a Vulgar Picture by the Smiths) She explains, "For the span of a year I am creating original characters and well known tv and film characters, in ink and color. Most will feature a single illustrated character where others might also feature a background, props, or various characters in one adorable package!"

Why did you decide to do this project? I wanted to do this to really stick to illustrating and also to improve my skill and imagination. Hopefully over the year I can not only broaden my portfolio and sketchbook but I can also expose my awesome illustrations to people who love them as much as I do. By doing at least one a day it can help me keep myself doing this for much longer in a year and maybe even make a successful living at it.

How has doing a yearlong/daily project affected your life? Even though I haven't been at it too long, I've realized not only an improvement in my drawing skills and techniques but also in the characters and situations appearing. It has really widened my creativity, not only in illustrating but also other aspects of my life such as my writing. It has really kept me grounded and on track to being consistent at something. Through doing these illustrations I've also found alot of great and new illustrators that have really neat and original styles and techniques, so I've learned alot from them and this experience and project.
