Drink & Draw [VIRTUAL]: Enchanted Characters: Illustration

This October, Drink & Draw explores character creation. Alongside this month’s guest artists, learn two unique approaches to developing imaginative characters for your next puppet play or comic book.

Guest Artist: Micael Nuñez

Micael uses the natural world as a starting point to invent and design whimsical characters and visual narratives. While her characters are often haunting but cute humanoid-plant forms, you can implement her guidance  for your own style or genre of drawing. During this illustration-focused Drink & Draw, Micael will be sharing her unique process for developing these fantastical characters. Using basic drawing materials as well as red and blue colored pencils, participants can invent their own character that could thrive in an ocean, a forest, a garden, or any setting that one desires. 

This creative session is great for all experience levels, and might be especially helpful for those interested in comics, zines, and design. If you attended Enchanted Characters Drink & Draw on October 13th, this is an opportunity to develop a new one of a kind protagonist for future paper puppet theatricals!

Suggested Materials:

  • Pen
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Blue or red colored pencil
  • Loose paper or sketchbook

Optional Materials:

  • Favorite nature photo 
  • A brush pen
