Eleven Ohio artists led by @joeymonsoon agreed to commit to a 3-4 year project of drawing each person in the group (3 months per portrait) then meeting for an exchange & beginning again. I am endlessly in awe of the talent I am surrounded by. Styles & experience range dramatically. It doesn’t take long to feel how important & powerful the single voice of an artist can be. I hope you enjoy seeing these as much as we have just loved creating them. As of March 2019, we are still not done.

We hope one day to be able to see everything displayed together. But at over 120 pieces…that’s gonna be quite an experience. Please explore and follow these artists I am thrilled to call friends & colleagues. I am so proud of the Columbus, Ohio art scene.
