Have you ever noticed a really good illustration in a story and thought… wow, I’d love to be able to draw like that?

Illustrations really bring stories to life. This week, authors and illustrators are going to show you how to draw characters from their very own stories. They are going to share their drawing knowledge and skills with you.

Happy drawing everyone!
