Going to a school of the arts for both middle and high school I have had a lot of talented friends over the years. The one talent that I’ve always been the most envious of is visual art. I am not an artist. When I was younger I used to try to be one by copying scenes from my favorite Disney books, but that was as far as I ever got and even then I wasn’t exactly awesome at it.
A little over a year ago I was introduced to girl named Jessica Lynn who shared my love for Harry Potter. Jess and I were pretty much destined to become great friends what with our shared interests and names, but I will forever be envious of her. Why? Because she is one incredible artist.
Jess is a self-taught artist who specializes in portraits. She has done a lot of portraits of musicians that she loves, including the members of Son of a Bad Man who I introduced you to earlier this year. She also does portraits of the characters from fandoms that she loves, like Harry Potter. Recently she has even started experimenting with more abstract art and different materials, such as water colors. I am proud to say that I now own several Jessica originals and I plan on collecting even more.
This is just a small sample of what she has done. If you like her art, you should check out her Facebook page where you can see much more than what I have shown here. I felt compelled to share her talent with you – she is simply too good not to share. I hope that everyone here appreciates her talent as much as I do.
Who are your favorite artists? Do you have any artistic talents yourself? Let me know in the comments.
