Looking through Karen Klassen’s very impressive and extensive portfolio, you might wonder the preparations she takes to make one of her gorgeous illustrations. Today, on a reader’s request, I am happy to share an inside peek at her many sketchbooks. In these pages, compositions are thought out, sketches for finals pieces are made, type treatments are tested, and then there are many explorations of mediums. She seems to be able to handle a variety of materials expertly from painting a realistic portrait, to collaging layers of textured papers. Thanks so much to Karen for sharing. See more of her work here.
