Drawing inspiration, and eyes!

Grandfather’s Wrinkles illustrator Richard McFarland  only began illustrating at 70, but he’s helping others start young.  Richard’s series of  school presentations teach – and inspire – children to draw.

“How exactly are you able to make eyes like that?” fifth-grader Grace Knudsen asked. Grace tries to shape eyes like lemons, she said. “It just doesn’t look like a real eye.” “You have to be focused,” McFarland said. “It would be helpful to have photographs. … Be patient. Take it slow and easy. You’ll get there.”

Richard’s most recent appearance was at Montini Catholic School in McHenry, Illinois. To read more about this visit from the Northwest Herald, click here.
