Local Illustrator Shares Her Secrets in Hudson Library Workshop

Wed 3/3 @ 7PM

Local artist/illustrator Salli Swindell has had a career as colorful as her artwork. She worked at American Greetings for a decade before striking out on her own. She continued to design award-winning greeting cards, and with her brother founded They Draw & Cook and They Draw & Travel, which she calls “the Internet’s largest collection of illustrated recipes and maps from artists around the world. Her designs are upbeat and colorful, often incorporated her loves such as cats and vegetables.

Swindell will share her passions and the skills she’s developed over the years in a virtual workshop at the Hudson Library & Historical Society on Wednesday, March 3 at 7 p.m. She’ll show the strategies she uses for visual storytelling and guide participants in creating an illustration using her “Nestle In & Draw Close” method.

Bring paper, pencil, eraser and some colored pencils. She’ll start off by brainstorming ideas with participants, then offering written prompts, sketching and color selection cues you can apply to various projects.

To register for the free workshop, go to hudsonlibrary.org/ . You’ll get the Zoom log-in shortly before the program begins.
