About This Class

Are you looking for new creative ways to approach your drawing and designs?  Have you been trying to get back to the joy of drawing and just haven't found the spark you need to get that pencil to paper? 

In this class I will show you my techniques in using basic shapes to act as a framework and jumping off point to creating unique and fun designs.  We will use 4 basic shapes and I will walk you through creating 5 different designs within each shape.  You will end up with the techniques and inspiration to create numerous creative designs of your own. Then we will toss these shapes onto a page of paper to give us a framework to fill a page with designs and doodles.

What you need:

  • pencil
  • paper
  • eraser
  • pen
  • downloads I have provided

In addition I have provided you the downloads for the shapes I use as well as the linework I will be showing you in the videos.  I also have provided a framework of assorted shapes that you will be able to use to create a full page design.

I am passionate about pen and ink drawing, with possibly too large a collection of pens :)  I find there is nothing like the relaxing sensation of a pencil gliding across the paper and the exhilarating sensation of the ink making your work come to life. I love exploring all mediums and am always trying to push the boundaries in new methods of design, but no matter what, I always come back to pencil and paper and my big box o' pens. :)

Encouraging and Inspiring others to use creativity in all areas of their lives on a daily basis.
