Taking a Break

Posted by Koosje Koene in Draw Tip, Draw Tip Tuesday, sketchbook on October 6, 2020

Hi there!

I am so grateful that you’re here, and I know you’re expecting a Draw Tip from me today – as it is Tuesday, after all!

However, I am doing a digital detox, meaning: I am off social media for a while, and away from computer screens as much as possible.
That’s why I am also taking a break from making my weekly videos. I’ll be out sketching, and just exploring the next possible steps on my creative path – and may come back with great ideas for new Draw Tip Tuesday videos!

In the meantime, check out the playlist on YouTube, called “Draw Tip Tuesdays”. It contains the full archive of video’s that I’ve been making weekly for seven years in a row. You’ll find the awkward beginnings there too, so feel free to have a laugh, but most importantly I hope you’ll learn a thing or two, or feel inspired. Keep drawing and exploring! See you soon!

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.
