As we pass through the months of the pandemic I’ve been following Gayle Kabaker, one of my favorite artist/illustrators. She has been writing and illustrating an occasional column, Sketching My Way Through Crisis, in The Washington Post and last month they hosted a webinar on Zoom. Gayle and her guest, Jennifer Orkin Lewis aka: August Wren, answered questions and each shared sketchbook techniques while inspiring us to sketch along with them.
I blasted out these two spreads while taking copious notes so I can refer to them when my own inspiration is nowhere to be found. (BTW… all faces drawn here are from my imagination. No egos were harmed in the making of these pages.)
I believe the plan is to upload the webinar to YouTube but I don’t think it’s happened yet. I’ll be sure to update this post with the link when it happens.
