Featured Artist: Leila
I’m Leila, an 18 year old Venezuelan freelance illustrator, known on the internet under the handle of @LittleGlobito. Currently living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, trying to make a living out of this creative hobby. Fun fact: I always listen to music while I drawing, and its thanks to being inspired by music that I started to draw. I’m a complete self taught artist (trial and error mostly), but as a new years resolution, I am starting to study with art fundamentals books to help improve my skills.
This month we have put together the perfect sketch kit. Use these supplies to tackle this months challenge with a loose approach. Quickly sketch out shapes and ideas and develop them into something special. We have given you a blank sketch pad too, use it to explore these supplies.
