Steve’s facebook:

Steve has been illustrating, drawing and painting for decades, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still working to keep his skills sharp.

For this video, he explained to us his practice regimen, which includes stacks of sketchbooks filled with studies, notes and experiments and regular life drawing. We even get to peak into his sketchbook to see how he practises in the video!
