“Everything starts with a drawing” says, digital artist Mike Barret (aka Emelbi). Produced as part of the DrawAble project, Mike shares with us what inspires him, and how we can make our own, individual work, either digitally or physically. Each resource is free to access, and the videos and text are appropriate for children to access directly.
Mike starts by sharing his passion for making digital portraits. He then takes us through a three-part process: draw a portrait, build a background, and combine the two images to make a layered narrative (autobiographical) portrait.
