Irina Vaneeva




I have also started a project with my students called '100 days of me' which can be anything that they want to do, be it self portraits, clothing, dreams etc. Their books are a little too neat as yet and full of pencil. I want them to dive in get messy and less precious, so that some surprise wonders start to leap from the pages. Like this wonderful journal made in an out of date diary by  Irina Vaneeva.

  2. one of the best insights to an artist mind - the sketchbook. Love them and love these. It's hard to get past the idea that people will be looking into your mind though.....hence the too tidy books!

  3. It's a cool idea (and makes me wish I was a student in your class)...maybe they need a daily prompt for a while to help them loosen up.
