there is a sign that says thank you for sending us a photo of your john lemon print
🎵Thank you Terry for sending a photo of your John Lennon art print!🎙️ It’s always cool to see where our art lives in it’s forever home. This was a fun portrait to make. His “greaser” phase is my favorite era of Lennon’s. (I mean, duh. We are *Grease* and Grace!) Drawing the details in the leather jacket, jeans, & hair made this a real treat. I love that kind of stuff! There’s also a tshirt & notecards available at our Etsy shop. Link in bio! — Deanna ✍️ #deannameyer

I’ve known @off_white_unicorn since we were fifteen or sixteen. We trust one another. So periodically throughout our lives she’s come to me with some unusual commission requests and I don’t balk, because between us it always works out. Her idea: A NINE animal pet portrait. Set in a location I’ve never been. Okay… So off I went collecting what I could for image reference, taking notes of which of the three boxers is which, and sorting out the location.

Dolores O'Riordan The Cranberries Portrait Art by Deanna R. Meyer
Portrait art of Dolores O'Riordan, (the late singer for The Cranberries). Created originally with graphite, colorized digitally, and printed. My work is highly emotive and expressive. In my portraiture, my intention is to create a piece that speaks something about the character of the subject - even if the viewer is unfamiliar with them.

Where the Green Grass Grows
This piece is all about those rare moments when nothing else matters. When the anxious thoughts stop. Moments where light dances wistfully, throwing about the intricate shadows of tree branches. Birds are singing. A good book is in hand & you’re in another world. Procreate Digital Painting © Deanna R. Meyer

The Brooklyn Art Library Sketchbook Project (Vol 16) Submission "The Weight", Deanna R. Meyer 2022
"The Weight" is a pun. To me it sums up the experience of Covid-19 perfectly. Mentally heavy, and seemingly unending. A transport vehicle containing this book and many hundreds of other unique submissions to the Brooklyn Art Library, caught fire in early 2020. The books were en route to Florida from New York during the museum/library’s relocation. At this time books are still being sorted through to see what is salvageable, but I was informed that “The Weight” is a survivor.
