Creative Playdate Episode 4: Interview with Renee Kurilla

Today's episode of Creative Playdate is an interview with children's book and graphic novel illustrator Renee Kurilla. She has illustrated a new children's book, The Pickwicks' Picnic by Carol Brendler, that will be released on September 5th of this year. Renee's daughter is still under a year old so we chat about the initial transition to parenthood and how to find ways to keep sketching. She's also got me drooling over the Wacom Mobile Studio Pro.


You can find Renee's work at and she shares lots of sketches and snippets on Twitter and Instagram.

Thank you to everyone who has been listening and sharing the show and thank you to Thomas James and Jason Ritz, who composed the theme music. And, of course, you can listen to the show here, on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher or Google Play Music.
