Project title and description


Have fun doing a speech balloon design        

I will walk you through the techniques that I use to create a design with simples shapes and words. We will draw an finally we will ink our designs with felt tip pens, colored or not.  You can use my suggestions or create some of your own as we work along.  You will end up with your own speech balloon design which you can use to colour.

I encourage everyone to upload their work in progress so we can encourage each other along the way. It is fun to see the many different ways people approach drawing.  

There is no limit to the creative possibilities.

On the project page upload the following

  • Project title.
  • Progress of your  drawing elements as you go.
  • Progress of your inking and color.
  • Your final speech baloon design.
