Coming March 15 New Online Class With Creativebug

I’ve got something exciting coming soon! On March 15th I’m releasing my first online instructional class with Creativebug on How To Draw Manga Faces! I filmed with the Creativebug team in a beautiful, professional set with amazing equipment, and show you step-by-step how to draw in manga style using tools like non-repro blue pencil, and pen & ink. You can sign up to watch the lesson online here for when it goes live March 15!

Camilla’s Whirlwind Week Wrapup

What an amazing week of adventures! Camilla is back from her exciting double-trip to San Francisco CA and Phoenix AZ.

Camilla’s beautifully shot, high-quality video classes are slated to release in March on Creativebug’s website. You can sign up now with Creativebug here! Camilla and the Creativebug team live-streamed to Creativebug’s Facebook. You can check out the full recording of the stream!
