About This Class

Hi, Marouane here,

In this class, you will learn how to sketch a cool looking wood texture using a pen, paper and 3 markers.

We are going to start by creating a wooden cube. You will learn about lighting, marker shading and layering to get the colors right and highlighting.

After that, we are going to sketch the first letter of your name and make it look like it's made out of wood! 

Thank you for checking out my class, I hope to see you inside.

Let's get sketching!

Design Professional & Online Teacher


I'm an industrial designer and online teacher from Sweden currently living in the sunshine state of Florida. I've always had a great passion for design and especially design sketching. I began my professional design journey as a freelancer in 2008. 

You could say I'm a wannabe surfer and backpacker (34 countries and counting) who loves design and helping others succeed. I have worked as an industrial designer, concept artist, illustrator and online teacher for over 10 years. Makes me feel old saying that...

In 2010 I moved to Italy to study a master degree in automotive design in collaboration with the design team from Audi and Lamborghini. I graduated a year later.

Since then I've been lucky to have my designs featured online and in numerous magazines such as Auto Motor & Sport, Auto Express, Car Magazine, Top Speed and Car Scoop.

I'm currently living in South Florida with my beautiful wife Lindsey. Here I help the largest privately owned medical device developer in the world solve their design problems and create better products while also creating online products and classes.

Online marketing is another great passion of mine, specifically video marketing, email marketing and social media. This is what I want to share with you in my classes.

I look forward to being a part of helping you get to where you want to be,

Thank you, now let's get to work!
