Create a Sketchbook 5 day online course
New online course starting on 17 August. Spent 5 days creating and filling your own sketchbook. No previous experience necessary, just a willingness to try (and laugh). Lots of videos, showing step-by-step how I approach drawing and lots of ideas to try out.Create a Sketchbook 5 day online course
