Featured Artist: Liz Lapointe

I’m an animator/illustrator living in Canada. I’ve drawn all my life and in college I studied animation. I graduated a little over 6 years ago and have been working in animation ever since, bringing characters to life. In the evenings, I spend my free time illustrating both digitally and traditionally, mostly using watercolours. For the past year I have been sharing my love of art weekly by making YouTube videos of my process.

Challenge: Escape
