Draw Tip Tuesday: Using Hatching and Lettering Together


In last week’s Draw Tip Tuesday, Koosje Koene, co-founder of Sketchbook Skool, showed you how to exercise your hatching muscles. This week, Koosje will show you how to put those muscles to use and add some creative lettering to make a holiday greeting.

Happy holiday hatching!
