cj hendry


There are so many things that fascinate me about Australian artist CJ Hendry. First, her insane ink drawings obviously, but… I think I might be even more obsessed with the images of her working! So fascinating to see her process in perfect black and white. But wait there’s more. I absolutely love her story… a few years ago she dropped out of an architecture degree to follow her passion. Good move.

“After having left school I enrolled in architecture and immersed myself in a world of lines, rendering, and architectural history,” Hendry said. “It was a completely captivating degree and I spent hour upon hour dissecting oversize black and white scale plans. All my assignments were hand drawn with a pen and ruler as I couldn’t figure out how to navigate CAD and Revit… [so she decided to take a year off]… I made a deal with myself – if I didn’t sell anything in 365 days I would re-enroll in university and go back to what I was doing. Luckily, after a couple of months I got my first major sale and there was no way I would ever set foot in a university campus again.” {via Mashable}

Ah-mazing. Ok, and there’s one more thing. She doesn’t seem to have a portfolio site. She posts all of her work via her Instagram account. Very smart. I’m not sure why she decided to do it that way, but it’s a great idea for any of you that want to share your work with the world but can’t afford {or can’t figure out how} to set up a full website. Final work, shots in progress… an amazing way to share your work… for FREE!
