Today post feature the release of my new ink drawing, a portrait part of my Collection Series “ART FOR MUSIC” a series inspired by music artists reflecting my passion for music. In this series I create artworks using several media, traditional watercolor paintings, ink drawings, digital art, photo manipulation and any other media that will inspire my creations. At the same time this art series is a feature for the music artists here on my Blog.
This is the portrait of “Mad Madam Em” also known for her solo project Plike she is an American electronic music producer and composer, Em creates unique beautiful mysterious, haunting and dark music, she is also the sound designer music composer for the upcoming independent video game “Momo Ichigo” Em is also creating music for Independent Film. At the moment she is working on her fifth EP that would be released in July 2017. I can’t wait to listen what she is creating!
This is the photo of Em “Plike” that inspired my Portrait!
Em is also working on a collaboration with music composer Ewian Christensen, who follows me remember that I often featured Ewian music and recently I had a Blog post as my interview with him and mentioned their future collaboration.
This portrait is an ink drawing. I have made a pencil sketch first and worked over with the ink pens this is not like my usual watercolor painting it is all black ink. I love the minimalism and contrast of the black ink on the white paper with a touch of precious gold ink between the hair and filled in the background’s oval shape. I loved drawing this portrait while listening to Em music and I hope I was able to deliver the spirit and essence of Plike if you like to discover her music, you can visit her website where you find the links to her YouTube channel and Bandcamp.
