Kika the Nun

M_HURST_KIKA_NUN

After this past drawing weekend at Dalvero I was looking through some drawings and found a few of Kika. Here she is metamorphosed into a nun. What will she be next time?

Always fabulous, Kika!

Baby’s All Right

Reportage by Greg Betza

That was the name of the club in Brooklyn where I saw Mac McCaughan play on Saturday night. Another high-energy show by a personal favorite.

Drawing from more life

reportage people/Michele Bedigian

This is one of those HUGE drawings I mentioned once before done on site a few summers back. You’d have to enlarge it to appreciate the pockets of drawing weaving in and out of the picture. It’s honestly a favorite of mine I guess because of it’s complications and the “study within the study”. The Mickey ears might be clue where I was sitting, lol. Happy Sunday! – Michele

The hummingbird is a sweet little bird of joy, a reminder to instill happiness and playfulness into our daily lives.

Such a perfect symbol for you, sister. Thinking of you on your birthday and always. love, Veronica

May Day #2 Union Square

HURST_MAY_DAY_2015_U_SQ

Another May Day Union Square drawing. As I talked about before I was a little surprised, but not, that there were so many different issues being brought to light. Truthfully, one issue usually relates to at least one or more other issues, and this protest proved that!

When you are out to dinner with your husband in DC, and a jazz band starts playing, only one thing to do – draw on a napkin!

MAY DAY UNION SQUARE

M_HURST_MAY-DAY-2015

Last Friday I left my class at Parsons and walked over to get the subway and discovered crowds of people from many different causes gathered at the front of Union Square to protest. Peacefully. It was May Day! This is the exodus of the multiple groups as they headed east and downtown after listening to many speakers talk about their various causes: fair pay to racial equality. Police officers were on the perimeter of Union Square; some on motorcycles, some standing. Those who were standing seemed to have their hands deliberately in their pockets or clasped behind their backs.

Also ran into Audrey Hawkins who was there to draw the May Day gatherings!

Tibetan Wind Horse Prayer

As Wind carries our prayers for Earth and All Life, may respect and love light our way.
May our hearts be filled with compassion for others and for ourselves.
May peace increase on Earth. May it begin with me. – Michele

prayer taken from a Tibetan prayer flag called a ‘Lung ta’, meaning ‘Wind Horse’

A Response to a Terrible Tragedy

In response to the recent 7.8 earthquake that struck Nepal, the illustrators of Studio 1482 have created art to raise  money on behalf of the victims. The death toll is now at 4,000 people, and thousands have lost their homes. This is a tragedy of huge proportions. This fundraiser is our effort to support the international appeal for funds by CARE, a leading humanitarian relief organization. We’ve selected CARE because we believe in their commitment.

For each donation of $50 or more to CARE, you will receive a hand-signed 13″ x 19″ limited edition print from one of the Studio 1482 illustrators. Please select from the illustrations below, limited edition of 10 per image. The first four people to donate $1482 receive a signed original of their choice (while supplies last).

To participate: please go to CARE (www.care.org) and click on DONATE NOW. When you receive your CARE receipt via email, forward that email and your choice of illustration print to nepalrelief@studio1482.com. (Please note: only the last four digits of your credit card number will be visible on the receipt.)

Once we receive the confirmation email, your print or original art of choice* will be sent to you. Please allow up to two weeks for delivery. Thank you for helping us to CARE.

Sincerely, The illustrators of Studio 1482

A Prayer Tree for Nepal by Veronica Lawlor

Prayer flags are a tradition of Nepal and Tibet. Sometimes hung in trees, it is believed that the prayers may bestow harmony and healing. Nepal sorely needs that now.

Across from me!

M_HURST_SOCIETY_OF_ILLUSTRA

A few weeks ago I went with Veronica Lawlor and Julia Sverchuk to the Society of Illustrators to draw some incredible models. Great night! As I was drawing the models I was feeling the vibe from the artists across from me. I couldn’t resist, so I drew them too! So much fun! Intense!
