I found out about this awesome talented painter last night. I was traversing through the highways of social media and there is was. This awesome video.
There’s not much information about the artist except the link to her social media.
I think that this is so perfect to address the current world issues, the wars, the conflicts, the killings, the terror. World Peace Day was “celebrated” a few days ago.
We all crave peace.
Let’s at least try.
Emerson student Jody Steel draws on thigh, gains fame
By Christopher Muther GLOBE STAFF
Students, ignore everything your parents, teachers, and professors have told you and listen carefully: Doodling in class can make you a star.
At least, that is what it has done for Emerson student Jody Steel, whose remarkable drawings, usually on her right thigh, have won her buzz, hundreds of thousands of views online, and job offers.
Since starting at Emerson College in 2011, the Florida native has been using her leg as a canvas on which to produce portraits of Bryan Cranston as Walter White in “Breaking Bad,” Radiohead singer Thom Yorke, and “Don Jon” actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Celebrity crushes, favorite television shows, and an occasional cat have found their way onto her leg as she carefully draws with a Pilot Precise V5 pen during class lectures.
The delicate shadings of her work bring to mind a series of pop-culture chiaroscuro sketches. They are documented on her iPhone and then lost to the ages with the help of soap and water.
“Completely unexpected,” Steel said of the attention. “Obviously you always hope your art will be seen, but I wasn’t expecting it to go so big and international.”
As her doodled masterpieces went viral, they became international curiosities. The story was picked up by websites in France and Britain and in newspapers across Europe. Now a website in Brazil is touting her talents. She has posted many of these stories to her Facebook fan page.
