Spring Artist Newsletter

Practice and Persist
By Heather Rooney

The Spring Edition of our Artist Newsletter is here! Our featured artist, Heather Rooney, specializes in photorealistic drawings and meticulous attention to detail.

You know those drawings you think are a photo a first glance? You can stare at, zoom in on, and examine Heather’s drawings with a magnifying glass and you still won’t believe they’re not a photo. Heather shares her process videos on YouTube where she has over 1.5 million subscribers who tune in to see her mind-blowing pencil skills.

In this edition of the Artist Newsletter, Heather is giving us an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how she fell in love with drawing, mastered her skill, and incredibly insightful pieces of advice for fellow artists.
