About This Class


I learned to control a brush pen by drawing little characters off the top of my head, one per day. What I didn't anticipate learning too, was how much drawing confidence it gave me to simply take the line for a walk.

This is a class is for anyone interested in taking a different brush pen route, upping their doodling game, and growing their self-confidence in spontaneous illustration.


In this class we'll cover:

  • Equipment: Everything you need to get started!
  • Brush Pen Basics: Learn simple techniques you'll use again and again
  • Examples: From my personal sketchbook, and live drawing
  • Physical Demonstration

The most important skill you'll gain from this class is confident brush pen illustration.

Brush pen characters that are not letters, but real characters. I love the idea for this class. Paul explains it well and shows how he improved his own characters in a few days. Fun class!

Let’s feel great around the camera!

I like your examples and tips you mention while showing your process. I will look out for a double sided pen and practice using a sketch book.
