Let’s make wonky self-portraits!

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

Making art doesn’t have to be a serious endeavour. Yes, you do need to take your creativity seriously, but let your sketchbook be your creative playground. Today let’s play!
When drawing a self-portrait, we’re often worried about making it look just right: the perfect lines, the right colors. But let’s add a little bit of extra fun to it, and draw our own reflection in a spoon! Because the curve of the spoon distorts your reflection, there’s less pressure to create a picture-perfect portrait.

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.
