Annie's still going strong on Instagram--follow there for daily updates--but while you're here get the behind-the-scenes scoop on some of her faves from the past few weeks. 


I found the font for this print online, printed Yay For Us, and then cut out every letter. In order to get the crisp lines, I loaded up my brush with paint and did the edges first; before that had a chance to dry I loaded up my brush with water and allowed a drop to falls directly onto the print. Then I manipulated that around with my brush until it was the way I like it. I had just gotten some new brushes—whatever happened to be on sale—and nothing makes me happier than a brand new pointy brush!

I was back with the ladies big time for a bit. My favorite was really fun to do and has an interesting story to go along with it! An Indian actress named Lakshmi Manchu came into the studio a few weeks ago and commissioned me to do one of my “Haters Gon Hate” paintings over a photo of her. She and her friend went through all the pics on her phone and picked a good one, which she sent to me; I printed out a few to get the right size, so I had an extra. Her eyes are so beautiful, so I painted a bunch of flowers and collaged them over her face for a doodle. I love the way it turned out.

 

 

I'm going to start teaching a collage class at the studio soon, and I did a trial run last week. Both of these came out of that experience--prepping, painting, and printing ephemera for everyone to use. #365anniedoodles-local-artist-made-in-san-francisco

Teaching the class inspired me to go into my archives and pull out stuff that I had completely forgotten about. I found a bunch of paper coated with pigment that Eric had to buy when he was in art school--a kind of Pantone color-matching thing. They cost a fortune, so students would buy one set and cut them in half until they were these small rectangles, about four-inches by six-inches. I found them over the weekend and they are absolutely beautiful to write on. I used them for this doodle.
