If you love cartoon or children’s book characters and you want to create some of yourself and the people you know, Koosje Koene, Sketchbook Skool’s co-founder, will show you how to draw them—fast!—in this week’s Draw Tip Tuesday.

Why one minute? Drawing quickly keeps you from thinking. Your inner critic won’t get in the way of your imagination, and your line will be nice and loose.

With a few simple materials, you can create fun characters, and even start making stories about your own life. That’s the subject of the klass Marloes De Vries will teach next week in our latest kourse, Imagining. This exercise is a perfect warm-up for that. Then, enroll in Imagining, and you can learn how to take those characters and make them into a series of drawings, maybe even a book. Have fun!

Creating characters quickly keeps your hand loose and stops you from thinking too much about what you’re doing. The results are looser and more fun! Art: Koosje Koene
