All you need is Pen and Paper

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

All of us artists, we love art supplies. We have favorite pens, and easily fall in love with the next shiny new toy. Right? 

I get a lot of questions about the pens and art supplies I use. I totally understand, because I am curious too, about other artist’s go-tos. 

But let’s not start hoarding art supplies in order to find the magic pencil that makes us draw the perfect drawing. There is no such thing as a perfect drawing and there definitely is no such thing as a magic art tool! So today let’s stop worrying about what the best art supplies are that you should use. Grab your favorite pen, pencil, crayon, marker, or whatever you feel like and come draw with me.

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.
