Southern California Poetry Scene – Drawings by Danielle Mitchell

Online Open Mic – 2021

Artists inspired by artists! I am in love with these electronic drawings by Danielle Mitchell! She celebrates the work of poets in Southern California by using her artistic skills to capture the beauty of the poets themselves. You can feel the love jumping off the page in each and every piece and capturing the essence of these wonderful people.
