Keep Calm and Steem On | digital illustration | Art Explosion 75 Open Theme Entry
![keepcalmandsteemon.jpg](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/leysa/Ne9JNxBU-keepcalmandsteemon.jpg)

I love to create digital illustrations! This week I discovered the Art Explosion contest, so this is my very first entry. It is fascinating to come in on an open theme this week. 

My design portrays the creativity of Steemians; whether it's art, music, photography, writing, or humour; contests, technical articles that I personally don't understand (!!), crypto talk, etc; I think we all enjoy creating content and curating content that is a relaxing break from our lives. 

For me personally, it has been a great prompt for my own creativity as I have discovered great new contests like this one to test myself and see what emerges. 

I hope you enjoy my illustration. 

As part of the contest, I have included work in progress images, from the Procreate app on my iPad Pro, which I hope you will find insightful. I love seeing behind the scenes and process videos from other creators!

I remember taking mum’s magazines when I was 10 or so and studying the models then and drawing them. So that was more than 20 years ago!!!
