FROM SKETCH TO CHARACTER/
Rilla Alexander is an illustrator, designer and picture book maker whose work has appeared on everything from toys and tea cups to busses and buildings. Her characters dance across Museo del Prado’s ceramics and stationery, populate Swiss Credit Cards and sleep on the walls of a Copenhagen hotel (where she replaced the bed with a tent).
Her alter-ego Sozi stars in her self-authored picture books “Her Idea” and “The Best Book in the World”. Her most recent book is a story by Jane Yolen, “A Bear Sat on My Porch Today”.
Rilla helps participants re-fine and outline their characters hiding in a pile of pencil lines and work out their main graphical value via expression, posing and silhouette.
