February’s Atomic Sketch was a blast (yes, unfortunately that pun was intended) as our sketchers scattered themselves throughout downtown. With 14 venues and nearly 50 artists, onlookers and art-walkers really got to enjoy quite a variety of artwork at our stations. We created commissioned works, collaborative pieces and the occasional Valentine’s Day themed card. Even the artwalk map was created by members of the AIGA Jacksonville board, Jim Ward and Karen Kurycki.
Work is sold anywhere from $5 to $50, which is a crazy bargain for an original piece of art! All proceeds from the work went to our Discover Design high school mentoring program which was suiting, as local students were out and about examining work that they liked, and some were even required to have their favorite artists sign a worksheet for an in-class assignment.
Overall, the night went off with amazing work thanks to our atomic-sketchers! We hope to see you out at our next Atomic Sketch event, so stay tuned and look out for more bomb work!
