Rachal Duggan, Bubbler artist-in-residence challenged patrons to draw the library through their own perspective. From offering observational drawing workshops that traveled around the library building to leaving passive prompts out in high traffic areas, Rachal gathered a collection sketches that capture the unique nooks, crannies, books, & humans of Madison Public Library.
And then she made these awesome zines to share with you!

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.

Rachal Duggan’s January & February (2018) Artist-in-Residence at the Bubbler focused on the curiosity of illustration. Over the two months, Rachal held observational line drawing workshops with an emphasis on people, faces and memories. She also had live-drawing sessions where she illustrated portraits on the spot at the library and participants took home a custom drawing of themselves. Guests were also invited to visit her illustration studio at the Bubbler to contribute doodles to an always-evolving collage of doodles.
