Illustrator Rich Powell will show teens and tweens how to draw monsters of all varieties at 2 p.m. Thursday, July 19 at the Asheboro Public Library.
The drawing session, part of “Own the Night,” the library’s Teen Summer Reading Program, is free and open to anyone age 10-18.
In addition to demonstrating drawing techniques, Powell will focus on finding inspiration for monsters; developing them from creatures you see every day; and what makes them scary.
He also will talk about classic monsters – vampires, werewolves and the like – versus science fiction monsters.
Powell has been illustrating for the past sixteen years while occasionally art directing for the world of computer gaming. His work appears in MAD Magazine, Our State, on greeting cards, t-shirts, posters, book jackets, magazine covers, children’s books, and in national advertising campaigns.
