Sketchbook Magic: Ice Breaker

Hi everyone! 

To start, I want to say Hi and THANKS to the class and to Ria, for the knowledge shared in this course. 

  

I'm Rosa, a Portuguese illustrator, graduated in Communication Design and I've been working in communication field by promoting and teaching on non-profit causes (mostly environmental but also social).    My Instagram account is @silentpulse

  

As I love Skillshare classes and I'm a recent mum managing lots of free time, I start thinking about sharing my own professional experience and skills, starting this October the Skillshare Teaching Challange and, restarting some classes that I've stopped before the baby, like this one... 

  

I hope that these classes could work like a motivation tool where through my sketchbook art I would identify, represent and expresse what concerns me, through a creative stand. 

I think that working my visual presentation on the subjects that interests me the most (HERITAGE, ETNOGRAPHY, NATURAL HISTORY, ENVYRONMENT and SUSTAINABLE LIVING), I'll became a stronger visual voice. 

With this sketchbook course some magic will happen and I´ll start drawing in a daily base, gaining new skills to 'break the ice' of the white pages, have fun with new tools and replant the seed of the artistic wild attitude that I've kept in the freezer all these years. 

  

What do I like?

DAY 1 - "We have everything we need. Exploring new tools and new media." This was my luck: a nib made of a cane stick that I bought a long time ago when I was in college, just because I found it a beautiful object. I debuted it with indian ink in the drawings that follow, letting me being led by the movements of a sketchbook leaves...

I liked very much to work with this cane: it give me a very wild feeling, like if I was in a vacation, maybe traveling in a remote place... It felt a very woody touch, a little difficult to control the amount of ink but very expressive lines!!


DAY 2 - "What to draw? A Blank page. What to make? Make art using a magic bowl!" I have subverted the bowl re-using this money box and stoling a lego dice that makes a so cool kit :)
