Draw Tip Tuesday – How To Come Up With Ideas

Posted by Koosje Koene in ArtJournal, Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on March 12, 2019

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!


I’ve been making these Draw Tip Tuesday videos for a while now, and sometimes people ask me: ‘how do you come up with ideas?’
And in fact, that question is interesting to answer not just for draw tip Tuesdays, but for art in general.
We’re all different, so the way we come up with ideas is different for everyone.
One thing is certain: You can’t just sit around and wait for an idea to come to you.
Here are some random tips, based on my own experience.

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.
