"I am a local freelance artist in Portland. I am formerly born and raised in the small town of La Crosse, WI. I’ve been consistently drawing everyday for the past six or seven years, sketchbook after sketchbook. Learning new ways to create, deal with the problems life throws at you , promoting positive outlooks on life and enjoying every minute of it. Everyday is a work day for me, never giving up and never slowing down. As long as I’m creating, I am happy. As I’m growing, I’m consistently finding new meanings for my work but as of right now, I have a goal. I want to share the beauty of smiling, and feeling. My goal is to create a brand, a life long project that exemplifies the idea of being alive. I have just released a line of YIN YANG CREATURE products available at designedbyhumans.com/shop/ChaseDrawsAlot/. If you like what you see today, check it out!"
"My name is Mckensey Kendall and I’m a 15 year old from a small town in Michigan. I use my work to express the love that I have for people, and my slight obsession with the tiny details that make up someone’s individual aesthetic, as well as the often overlooked features that are absolutely striking when brought to the surface; their deep frown lines, the wrinkles around their eyes, how the highlight meets the bridge of their nose. I love looking at people, and, moreover, I love to paint them."
"Un Pensamiento - I feel like we often think a lot about our lives and how we want to live them, or what we think is the right choice to take. What we need to start doing is just to let ourselves make decisions without thinking. My name is Natalie and I'm a 15-year-old photographer. I live in Seattle and I started taking photographs about 2 years ago and I haven’t been so focused on something since. One of my goals is to take someone who wouldn't be so used to being in front of a camera and show them just how beautiful they all actually are. My photography consists of many portraits and bright colors. I feel like it’s something that draws peoples attention."
