Mindy Lacefield

Hi! My name is Mindy and I am inspired and paint from the nostalgia of my childhood. Channeling my inner 8 year old. Painting my dreams into reality. I teach. I learn. I play. I make mistakes. I celebrate those mistakes because they become happy, magical moments from the Divine.

About this course

What makes up a character? Expression. Color. Shape. Keeping all of these elements simple is key. Simplicity wins with character design. (actually all design in art in my opinion) Where do you start with finding a character that holds a part of you and the style you want to convey? Looking at illustrators that you admire can help lead you in the right direction. What is it about their work you love? Mary Blair is such a huge inspiration for me and lately Momiji dolls too. Again, the simple shapes and design truly draw me in. Mary Blair's work is so deceptively simple. The shapes are simple but the idea and work to get it there is definitely not.

This class focuses more on drawing and exploring simplicity in a way that is not-intimidating. If you can draw circles and squares and triangles, then you can do this class! Come join me in this fun exploration of darling, cute characters
