We LOVE this picture book, and we LOVE this drawing tutorial!
Grab a pencil and a sketch book and let’s learn to draw together!

Kevin the Unicorn: It’s Not All Rainbows
Written and Illustrated by Jessika von Innerebner
Publisher’s Synopsis: A unicorn’s bad day turns into a laugh-out-loud look at the pressure to be perfect and the importance of expressing your feelings.
Everyone knows that unicorns are perfect. They are glamorous and glittery, and their smiles make rainbows appear! But Kevin is having a less-than-perfect day. First, he wakes up on the wrong side of the bed …on the floor. Then he discovers that his mane is so wild that even his Super-Perfect-Hair-Day-Spray can’t tame it. And the day just gets worse from there. Kevin does his best to keep his outlook sunny, but it’s hard to keep smiling when everything goes horribly wrong!
