I love it when one post inadvertently flows neatly into the next. This one is connected to my last post in a couple of ways. Not just visually, via Anah's gorgeous pink portrait. But, also I got this block of post-it notes in Bologna. In fact, Anah got it for me. She was very very good at getting all the freebies and at the Fair there were lots of freebies to be had.
I completely forgot I had these post-it notes until I stumbled across them last week. Since then I have obsessively drawn these very quick portraits of girls, until I'd finished the block. They are all ladies that I work with or from tv. Jacqueline Wilson is probably the only recognisable one. There's also a self portrait in there somewhere. Each one took about a minute or two.
It was an interesting little project and is something I am going to do more of from now. Not post-it note portraits specifically. But drawing people. When I was a kid I only ever drew people, I don't know why I stopped. So that's another of my drawing resolutions. Not just for the New Year but for life.

I am So glad you are drawing people, Andrea!! These are great!
I love these! I think you're on to something...Post It People.
Very cool! What size post-its are you using? nancy
Love the idea of portraits on post-its! Very nicely done too. I too used to draw people all the time as a kid, and then I stopped. Now it's my greatest struggle, I never seem to get any likeness (that's probably why I stopped, unfortunately). I'm looking forward to seeing more of your portraits and people as I too have this as one of my goals for the year!
How inventive and imaginative. You definitely have a gift with people. Look forward to seeing more of your work.
there is a whole new flickr group here, 'art on a post-it'! the jacqueline wilson one is spot on, and I think I know which the self portrait is ... c xould be wrong, so i won't say. :-)
These look so neat altogether. Hard to believe they are on simple post-it notes. I also loved the black shoe you did in ballpoint. I thought it was a photo until I read the post. Incredible what you can create with a ballpoint pen.
Your work never ceases to amaze me.
lovely drawings of people, definitely carry that one on! Post it poppets maybe?
These are SO much fun and so expressive, Andrea!
and I think I know which one is the self portrait…
really good exercice, well done too.
Thank you all, guys.
Nancy, I guess they are about 3x3inchs.
I very much enjoyed this little project. I do quite a lot of this sort of stuff, just never post it (excuse the pun). I think I will share more from now. I feel a little exposed but I'm not sure that's a bad thing.
Cheers my dears.
