As you know, I was recently chosen as one of twenty artists to design a cooler for the Red Bull Canvas Cooler Project. This Monday was creation day, and working on my cooler was definitely much more of an endurance test than I had anticipated! While I have drawn for hours at a time, never have I immersed myself into a piece for 7+ hours in a public space. It was exhausting and exhilarating all at once. I am really pleased with how my cooler turned out, especially considering my only real plan was to have the focus be an anatomical heart. I tend to think my work turns out more sincere when I freehand and just let the lines go where they may.
Some progress photos I took with my trusty iPhone throughout creation day:
Tonight is the big night! If you're in the Dallas area, you can RSVP for free admission to the reception. Even if you aren't, you can still be a part of the voting process by hashtagging: #jodypham #canvascooler #rbcurates together in a tweet!
