Artist Spotlight: Charlotte Laheye
This week's featured artist is Charlotte, a creative at heart who was looking for a platform to hold herself accountable to some of the artistic projects she wants to create. With other commitments like work and family taking up much of her day-to-day, she leapt at the idea of giving herself a finite amount of time (and pages) to complete one of her creative goals - a full comic strip!
Hailing from Frankfurt, Germany, Charlotte has been chronicling her extensive planning and lessons learned from The Sketchbook Project on her blog. We love getting an inside peek at an artist's thought process and planning strategies. Her blog's tagline rings very true to us - "turn creative projects into reality" and we're so excited to watch her progress from storyboarding to the final masterpiece!
We love Charlotte's initiative to transform a short story she wrote many years ago into a comic book taking up the full 32 pages of her sketchbook and bringing to life the characters and ideas she imagined in the past. While at first she was nervous to attempt a piece of artwork this large, she's starting to realize that having a solid timeline and plan are most important in keeping her motivated.
Charlotte's goal is to complete her sketchbook by March 31st, 2018 and she's still on schedule. We hope that her story inspires you to start chipping away at a creative goal you may have - no matter how large or daunting it may seem. Click here to read more from Charlotte's blog.
