Here at The Fox Is Black we love the work of Glasgow based illustrator Jen Collins. Recently Jen has started a neat little project on Tumblr called Girls Faces. For Jen the project is a way of practicing her portrait skills, and for us it’s a way of getting a wonderful dose of Jen’s work every day.
It’s always wonderful to see artists and illustrators taking on projects like this as you really get to see how they tackle a repetitive task on a daily basis. It also means you get to see first-hand as their work improve and how new creativity can emerge from repition. I love Jen’s portraits for their personality and beautifully simple line work. If you’re on Tumblr I recommend you follow Girl Faces.
