Cynthia Sheppard - Carly Mazur

Portrait of Carly Janine Mazur
2-28-2013, The Final Challenge.

I first met Carly at the Illustration Master Class in 2011. I never told her then, but when I happened to walk by her easel I became enamored with (and maybe a little jealous of) the color studies she was working on for her painting- they were gorgeous, and made me think I should do more of those kinds of studies. She was otherwise mysterious and quiet, so we didn't get a chance to talk until the next IMC and IlluXCon, where I got to know her a little better as a passionate and determined artist.

I used Carly's own Web of Love piece from this blog as inspiration and went a bit outside my usual approach to sketches and portraits. I hope you like it (especially you, Carly!), and I hope everyone had an amazing experience this month.

The <3 doesn't end today,


  1. I absolutely love it! Chalk it up to being shy, I'm not mysterious... You're making me blush! I love you girl <3

    1. Shy... mysterious... sometimes the same thing! So glad you like it. <3
