Every October, artists all over the world take on a drawing challenge, creating one ink drawing a day for the entire month of October called #Inktober. Last year, I apprehensively contributed a drawing or two, but felt completely out of my league. The talent and artistry from contributors just blew me away! But this year I’m a different artist. This year, I’ve decided to take the challenge as a testament to what it means to learn and grow as a graphic recording artist with Frame the Message Ink. Read more….
Pinch me. I’m living a dream. But I’m still learning what it takes to master the heART of change.
I am a creative. I am a perfectionist. This has me wondering. Can I be creative and perfect at the same time?
Dream, Learn, Serve. That is the Mission of the American School of Bombay (ASB) and why Frame the Message Ink is here coloring outside of the lines for the next 5 days. It’s why I traveled over 8,068 miles from Phoenix, Arizona, endured 24 exhausting hours in airports and airplanes…. To Mumbai, India.
The westerner in me is no stranger to hustle and bustle. However, this pace seems different than the “busy bee mentality” indicative of my own American culture. But how?
After two days of learning about the American School of Bombay, today, I actually stepped out of the bubble of Bandra Kurla to explore the streets of Mumbai with an amazing guide and friend, Rory and her former student, Kelly, a third culture kid. Oh, and dare I forget Moen, Rory’s super incredible personal driver.
At Frame the Message Ink, I want to master the ART of communication. What message are you hoping to convey? How can I help?
Isn’t it possible that we become even more intelligent when we challenge our creative brains? For me, drawing isn’t always about the art, it is about the thinking that lives inside.
