RACHAL DUGGAN: RADillustrates
JAN + FEB 2018
Rachal Duggan’s January & February Artist-in-Residence at the Bubbler will focus on the curiosity of illustration. Over the two months, Rachal will hold observational line drawing workshops with an emphasis on people, faces and memories. She will also have live-drawing sessions where she will illustrate portraits on the spot at the library and participants can take home a custom drawing of themselves. Guests are also invited to visit her illustration studio at the Bubbler to contribute doodles to an always-evolving collage of doodles.
MEET THE ARTIST
RADillustrates (Rachal Duggan) is an illustrator living in Madison. She spent the last decade living and working in Chicago. Her work is consists of accessible and whimsical line drawings. Rachal draws from daily life observations, current events, personal experiences and pop culture. Each line has a purpose and invites the viewer to join in on the joke rather than ask the viewer to contemplate its meaning. Rachal regularly participates in art shows, live-drawing sessions, selling events and illustration workshops.
