Artistic Interpretation #7 / Beyoncé Giselle Knowles

Following hot on the heels of my previous Artistic Interpretation which was based on the iconic music legend, Prince Rogers Nelson, I started working on Artistic Interpretation #7 which focuses on the Destiny’s Child musician and solo hit-maker, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles.

I wanted to draw Beyoncé as a way of celebrating the heartwarming news that broke on the 1st February that she was expecting twins.

I decided to take my time to draw her because I wanted to make sure I could shade certain areas of the drawing so that her facial features stand out the same as I would want for her hair to stand out.

For me, drawing Beyoncé was quite a challenge, because I referred to the photograph that was taken of her that announced she would headline the Super Bowl on the 3rd February 2013, which was fantastic, given that Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams performed alongside her for the hit record, Bootylicious, with her most recent Super Bowl appearance being at the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show that took place last year, when she performed alongside Bruno Mars and Coldplay.

Below is my artistic interpretation of Beyoncé Giselle Knowles.

I am pleased with the overall result, as I had made sure to spend time on drawing Beyoncé, given that I wanted to make sure this drawing would not just celebrate Beyoncé as a musician, but that this drawing would celebrate her music career, given that she has been on the music scene for a long time now.

Again, congratulations to both Beyoncé & Jay Z on the pregnancy and may both your twins be blessed with perfect health, love, compassion, care, respect and support. I love you both.

Please feel free to comment below what you thought of my artistic interpretation of Beyoncé. I would love to hear your feedback.

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween everyone!!! As Halloween is the time of the year where everyone goes out celebrating fright night, I thought it would be good to celebrate Halloween with all of you.

At this time of the year, the glow-sticks come out, all of the Halloween costumes are worn and everyone makes food in the style of Halloween, to possibly put a bump in anyone’s step if you get my drift :D.

As Halloween is also the time of the year where everyone dresses up to go to Halloween parties, and to celebrate a yearly event, it’s often known that Halloween can be a bit of a scary part of the year, but also exciting at the same time, considering that there are often good elements of Halloween that connect well together.

I know Halloween isn’t really my thing, but I like to get involved and have a good time by celebrating Halloween on here with you all, because I don’t like the feeling of not being a part of a ghoulish, yet special event.

I love the thought of all of us getting together on here to celebrate such a special event, as it really helps us all to celebrate what Halloween is really about.

To conclude, I would like to say to you all…

HAVE A HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Welcome back to my blog for a chilly November, a month of Remembrance!

Hello everyone, how did your fireworks night go? As Autumn begins to draw to a close, I thought I’d give the blog a slight makeover in terms of the header. I’ve redesigned the header for this month to celebrate a well known event, which is based on rememberance day, commemorating and paying tribute to a lot of our soldiers that died in the first World War. I’ve provided a link from Wikipedia that gives an in-depth description of World War I that went begun in 1914 and ended in 1918: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_I

I also redesigned the header to mark another event that continues through the whole of November, Movember!!!

I’ve updated the pages bar on here with an ‘About Alex’ column, where I introduce myself to all of you, and what I like to blog about. I also gave an in-depth description of what kind of things I do on my blog to keep myself occupied. Feel free to give it a read anytime you want. Here is a preview of what the pages bar looks like now with the new column:

New 'About Alex' Column

Please send in your photos of the fireworks via email, also please include your name with the photos so I can put the photos you sent in into a separate gallery. To email me your pictures of the fireworks, my email address is: asterisk1598@outlook.com

Please make sure to wrap up warmer this winter, as we could be facing a harsh winter, after all the baking hot weather we had a couple of months back.

Thank you for reading.
