Flick Chick: 2010.04.07, originally uploaded by Julia Kay.

Wasabi App on my iPod Touch.

Freehand from a photograph.

30-60 minutes.

March-April 2010, I intend to draw a different contemporary artist every day.

Today’s artist is American Mary Martz, known as Flick Chick 2 on flickr. She paints with her finger on her iPhone using many Apps and artfully mixing their effects. The things I appreciate most in her work are her strong sense of graphic design, her sense of humor, and the fabulous hats on her femme fatales.

You can see Mary’s artwork on her flickr imagestream:


Photos of Mary and other artists’ portraits of her can be seen here:
