FROM SKETCH TO CHARACTER/
Rilla Alexander is a graphic designer, illustrator 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 Cophenhagen hotel (where she replaced the bed with a tent).
Her picture books include “The New Rooster”, “You Rule!”, “Her Idea” and “The Best Book in the World”, some of which feature her alter-ego Sozi.
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.
