Artists are people I am extremely intimidated by.
The thought of them making things they love, doing it well, and sharing it to the world makes me incredibly envious. Illustrators, and graphic artists tell a story with their pictures, not words. You can feel the most in-depth feelings while looking at a singular painting. The layers just unfold, and your imagination can run with it. I know there are several different kind of artists, and each one has different talents. The part of me that took a drawing class and passed with a D, is by far the most lime green jello.
I love the artists that are humble. They do great work, and they are proud of it, but they don’t brag. Everything about them oozes creativity, from what they wear to how they act.
I have the best friends who are extremely talented artists. I made a comic book with one, had one design my business cards and save the dates, and ones who have helped me get the best tattoo artwork.
With all the talent out there, it is hard to not notice, especially here in Evansville. From the radio, to the podcasts, and the street fairs, we kinda ooze talent. Walking through Haynies corner, you feel like you are in a big city art district. Little town, big art.
With the E is for Everyone campaign, as well as the Love it EVV magazine, Evansville is getting an artsy edge. Following Facebook pages, and Instagram accounts can open your eyes and give you more of the art experience.
It’s really awesome we have people like Megan around our area. She is a badass lady boss, who can do the art stuff, but also be as sweet as pie. She has the type of personality that makes you want to be her best friend, and support her every venture. It’s not just Nathan that stalks people on Instagram, I do it too. With good intentions and reason!
Find her at megvndickens.
You won’t regret it.
