Guest posting for Jamie Ridler is nothing but a privilege. Using the prompt, “It’s not about being tough. It’s about being tender,” I knew that I wanted to make some art, rather than write an article.

Inspired by my #icad (index card a day) colour mini portraits, I made a full size poster. It was made using my old oil pastels, which are more akin to wax crayons than pastels, but I still like the effect.

You can see the full image over at Jamie Ridler Studios today.
