The Muse

Posted by Koosje Koene in Draw Tip on September 13, 2017

My partner Danny and I made a fun collaborative Sketchbook film. It’s all about the creative process. I realize I am not much of an actor but I do like dressing up!

And I do like imagining things, and drawing from my imagination, so I wonder why I don’t do it more often? I need practice! Luckily, there’s a new kourse coming up at Sketchbook Skool, called ‘Imagining’. It’s a five week kourse, with five illustrators in it; they all teach one week of the kourse. I will be sharing my imagining skills and stories is week one, and after that, 4 weeks follow with 4 awesome teachers: Ohn Mar Win, Stefan Bucher, Nina Johansson and Marloes De Vries. Get ready to get out of your comfort zone and into your imagination!

‘Imagining’ costs $99 and starts Monday September 18. Learn more about the illustrators and about the Kourse at!

Hi I'm Koosje. I'm an illustrator and art teacher in Amsterdam, where I was born and raised. I went to school to study graphic design, then worked for ten years as an award-winning professional photographer. But eventually my love of drawing and painting took over and I became an illustrator. My illustrations have been published in many Dutch magazines and in 2011, I began blogging and started developing and teaching online art classes. In 2014 I founded Sketchbook Skool, which is a flourishing community of artists from around the world of all skill levels.
