Each month we invite creatives from across the world to invent creative briefs which everyone, no matter your talents, can get involved in. At the end of week the best of the bunch are featured right here on It’s Nice That. Watch out this time next month for new challenge to get involved in.
Alan Fears is a multidisciplinary artist well known for his paintings which reference pop culture of the past, and his portraits of 80s celebrities are probably some of the best you’ll ever see. In the spirit of his creations, Alan has set this month’s creative brief to “make a weird piece of fan art of your favourite celebrity.”
“Good fan art is bad fan art… and bad fan art is always great. Pour your passion for your favourite celebrity into your art and ruin someone’s features with your best effort. Pen, brush, collage, do whatever it takes to make your mark.” – Alan
