September's Featured Artist!

Hello and welcome to September’s Featured Artist! Meet Megan, the artist behind MM Fine Art. She is a professional graphite artist and specializes in Pet Portraits! Let’s learn more about her creative journey.

Welcome, Megan, so tell us about yourself?

I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. I have always loved working with graphite ever since I was little. I’ve tried to draw as realistically as possible, and I would love to advance to hyper-realism one day. I’ve never had any formal training, so I’m completely self taught and have learned everything I know from trial and error. I currently specialize in pet portraits because I love the relationships people have with their pets. The love that an owner and pet share is very unique but also so strong, and I love to immortalize people’s pets (and my own) through my art.

July's Featured Artist!

Hello and welcome to July’s Featured Artist! Meet Dallas Anderson, an artist who loves drawing and painting popular characters from comics, TV, and movies. Let’s learn more about, Dallas!

So Dallas, tell us about yourself and your artistic style?

I have been drawing ever since I can remember. Even as a kid I was always drawing things from pop culture. Still to this day my favorite thing to draw are things from the early 90's, I guess it just reminds me of childhood, and everything I grew up in love with. My style is always changing. I try to adopt my style and grow with new techniques every day to keep becoming a better artist.

Definitely a great thing to keep in mind as an artist; improvement is almost always in small increments! What would you say is your favorite medium to work in and why?

Visual art, drawing, painting, etc is my favorite by far. This is something I feel I have complete control over. You start with the blank page, and create the world, character, or emotion you want to see. I also love photography, but I always want to get pictures of places, and haven't traveled for some time now.
