About This Class

93a5d429

Not just a how to draw class -- let me introduce you to my WHY to draw philosophy!

Materials (suggested)

Pencils: Mechanical or other draw-friendly pencil (I like standard lead, use what you prefer). The fancy mechanical pencil I use in the class is the Pilot Opt. 0.5

Pens: permanent ink preferred. The class pen is a Platinum Preppy with Platinum Carbon ink. Also useful are Microns, dip pens, Pitt Artist Pens, that ubiquitous Pentel Brush Pen or an actual brush and india ink. 

Ink: Platinum Carbon cardriges or bottle ink, Dr. PH Marten India Inks (I use Blackstar hicarb and matte) or whatever you can find. Make sure it is waterproof when dry! 

Color: Watercolor set, colored pencils, alcohol markers, crayons, whatever is handy. Or go crazy and keep it all black and white. 

Paper/Sketch Books: I use Moleskien drawing books, Plumb sketch books from Knock Knock, “bank” paper books and loose paper from L!fe (Japan), and Canson Mixed Media. Feel free to use anything from copy paper to cold press watercolor or the backs of wedding invites (they always use great paper). 

You can find links to these items and more on my Pintrest Board made specially for this class. 

Artists I mention in this class (in case you want to check them out):

Tove Jansson, creator of The Moomins

Joann Sfar, filmmaker, artist and author of The Rabbi’s Cat and the Grand Vampire series (and about 100 others). 

Charles Addams, creator of the Addams Family

Jaques Tardi, creator of Adel Blanc-Sec

Louise Trondheim, one of the creators of the Donjon series (and about 1000 others)

Jeff Smith, creator of Bone

Utagawa Kuniyoshi, iconic ukiyo-e artist of the late Edo period.

This was a great class! It is fun to watch Anna draw, and she is encouraging about just getting started and doing what you can. To those who have been too afraid to draw fanciful illustrations like I was, take this class!

Look around, make stuff.

Hi! Thanks for the class, I liked to watch it through, however next time it would be a bit better I think if you could share more step-by-step or practical tips on drawing.

Eager to learn illustrating

Very helpful, particularly if you want to draw characters.

Scary, weird and cute

I'm a sculptor for a cake company at my day job, but all I've ever wanted to do is draw. Over the last year I've self published a few comic books and zines, using my experience in co-publishing Shock Cinema Magazine for twenty years. I'm currently doing freelance art and design in the publishing industry, creating one of a kind toys and wearable art, and promoting the idea that everyone can draw. And Should!
