Guest Post: My Open Sketchbook

Hey, friends! I'm taking the week off (except for Wednesday) because I've been so busy, 
but I have an awesome line-up of guest posts for you this week!

Hello! I'm Kayly, and I blog over at My Open Sketchbook. When Sara contacted me about a guest post,  I jumped at the chance to share two of my biggest passions: Art, and my fandoms! Fan art was what started me down the path of art; I was eleven years old and fell in love with drawing Sailor Moon characters. I think fan art is such a great way for people to share their fandom love, and today I wanted to showcase a few of my favorite fan artists!

Her designs are just stunning. I'm a huge fan of art nouveau, and her work combines some of my favorite fandoms with gorgeous art nouveau style. I own so many t-shirts, and even a couple prints of her work.

I love the wit behind Karen Hallion's work. She has such clever mashups!

Alice has some of the most beautiful digital art I've ever seen. Her style is so fluid, and I love how painterly it is.

Ashley Cole is the owner and artist behind this Etsy shop, and her works are filled with great design. As a book lover, I'm a huge fan of her prints and the selection she has in her shop is just great!

I love fanart, both creating it and sharing it with other people. Right now, I'm having a giveaway on my blog to win some of my original fanart sketches! Below are the six pieces to choose from, and I'll be selecting two winners! You have until the end of May to enter, so click here to go to the giveaway!

Do you have fan art?
