Blank canvases were once intimidating for the artist Shantell Martin (@shantell_martin), whose black-and-white work travels across surfaces from crisp white shirts to refrigerator doors. “I used to worry, ‘what if I make a mistake?’” she says. “Then I realized that it’s all a big mistake. You just have to enjoy it.”
Shantell’s advice for artists who are facing the beginning of a project is simple: “Just follow the pen and hope that the pen knows where it’s going.”
