  • Drawing Demo: Starting from Scratch from Renee Kurilla on Vimeo.

    Just a little example of how I start a drawing from scratch on a blank page. Inspired by a workshop I taught with author / illustrator, Russ Cox at the New England Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators conference that we aptly named “Sketchbooks are AWESOME!”

    This video has an accompanying blog post on SimplyMessingAbout.com.
