This is the second big drawing I did and it follows the caterpillar drawing. Metamorphosis of the caterpillar to moth. From a semi-realistic to fantastical fantasy. I truly enjoyed this immensely and had a blast drawing this one. It's big and bold and ever so striking. If you love moths then behold a beautiful creature! I used only black, white and sepia charcoal to create this so it's very minimal and simple in that aspect, which I believe makes it pop so much.
Well, I’m Jessica Stepp. I'm a philosopher by degree, but artist and poet by heart. I'm passionate about nature, which influences my art greatly, even if it is mostly surreal and fantasy. I grew up in the Midwest and love what it has to offer in way of natural beauty. Hiking and wandering the land is a way that I get inspired to draw. I also let my mind wander and whatever it creates I put to paper. I'm a quiet person and very thoughtful so I think about what I do in art and how others take it. I want the viewer to enjoy it as much as I do in creating it. Being quiet and shy is a hardship for an artist though. It makes for putting your art out there rough. I have a wonderful family who pushed me to get my art out and to not be afraid of what others say.
