An Artistic Voyage: exploring local creative and artistic works

Raw, unfiltered creative expression – from stories and photographs to illustrations and paintings – is at the heart of VoyageHouston.    In the coming weeks you’ll find in-depth conversations with many of the artists and creatives we’ve been introduced to lately, but below you’ll find a sneak peak of some of the creative works that we’ve been most excited about recently.

How could I not post on #nationalphotographyday!? This is an old series from 2008 called #privatetravail. I was working to create a metaphorical space for the private demons we all face through life. In the images, people breach the barrier, escaping or retreating into a private, obscured space. 📸 FUN FACT: This series was initially exhibited in Galveston, TX during Hurricane Ike. I lost all the art and framing after the first floor of the building was submerged in flood waters. 😑🤑 #brittthomas #photography #photoshop #photoshopart #digitalphoto #digitalphotoart #private #privatelife #personalbarriers #overcomingdepression #overcominganxiety #mentalhealth #personalproblem #personalproblems #contemporaryphotography #contemporaryphoto #contemporaryphotographer #femaleartist #womeninart #houstonartist

Seriously. I’ve believed the lies that you have to go viral for people to like your lettering. Guess what, I’m still the same me after some posts have gone viral and some posts haven’t done so well. I didn’t love my lettering any better after I reached a certain number of likes or follows. I only liked it better when I learned to love it for myself. This is why I keep posting and hoping to reach people who need to hear this.🙌 This is the center of everything I do. If you’d like to join me, Your Confident Lettering Style course closes Monday at midnight. This is your last chance to get the extra goodies for free and enroll for this price. I don’t know yet when the course will open again but I know it will go up in price. If nothing else, at least take my free course (link in profile)!💕 See my last video for the process video. 👍 #letteringlove #confidentletteringstyle #learnlettering #brushlettering #watercolor #watercolorart #letteringart #handlettering #calligrafriends #colorful #qotd #nocoteam #nocopaints

“Sometimes when we’re in the darkest places we find the brightest light”. This is what happens when your color palette is directly inspired by your amazing pen by @featherparklettering ! 😂👏🏻 sticking with a limited color palette can be tough but also so fun! . . . .
