The Mundane as Your Muse
with illustrator and co-founder of Sketchbook Skool, Koosje Koene
Suggested materials: sketchbook, a pen and something to add color (colored pencils, watercolors, gouache, crayons)
As a kid, born and raised in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, I drew all the time… and I never stopped.
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.
I know how it feels to be ‘stuck’, not knowing what to do next or how to develop your own style in drawing. Once, I felt frustrated about my creative life too, even though I was working in the creative business. By picking up my pencils and getting back to using simple and basic techniques, I found my creative voice again and haven’t stopped using it ever since.
