Draw Tip Tuesday – The Accordion Sketchbook

Posted by Koosje Koene in ArtJournal, Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on January 22, 2019

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

The accordion sketchbook format is really accessible. It’s just fun, because there is never really an end to it… if you feel like you haven’t finished the drawing yet, you need to add something, but you reached the fold of the page – you just unfold it, you move on and you go on. It’s an ongoing story, even if you’re filling the sketchbook in little bits and pieces – like just 15 minutes a day or whatever.

It’s a very accessible way to draw and to get into the habit of drawing.

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.
