Design and Layout!

Posted by Koosje Koene in ArtJournal, Draw Tip, sketchbook on July 4, 2018


During the new Kourse ‘The Whimsical Sketchbook’ in Sketchbook Skool, Danny and I alternate doing the weekly homework. This week’s teacher, Anna Denise Floor, shows us many ways to think about balance and design and layout in your sketchbook pages.

And with all the inspiration and ideas she gives us in klass, I dived in to do my homework: Filling a page by telling 5 things about yourself. Here’s the video I made.

It’s not too late to join ‘The Whimsical Sketchbook’! Go to to find out more and enroll!

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.
