Joie is a student currently enrolled in my foundation drawing class a the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan New York. Joie is an incredibly hard working student with a ton of drive.
Joie is really into drawing fast in a very bold way. Using crayola markers and crayon’s she has the uncanny ability to create very strong looking images that pop right off of the page.
What inspires me about Joie is that even though she truly dislikes doing quote, long tedious type drawings, she understands the importance of striving to learn new techniques.
The takeaway from Joie’s sketchbook, try new things. Don’t just do the same old same old.
This is especially important as a first year student in college. It’s really important to make experimentation a big part of your sketchbook.
Thanks Joie for sharing your work!
Check out Joie’s Instagram. Thanks again Madeline for sharing your art. looking forward to the next sketchbooks.
I am a former Alumni of SVA from the class of 1970, when they were a certificate school. I wish they had these tutorials when I was going there. Here’s a tip for your students that might be helpful. I am left handed, and using regular sketch books can be awkward at times. Recently I started flipping the books so the perfect binding or spirit binding in on the right. I do not have that problem of hitting my hand on it. It makes for a more greater drawing experience.
Thanks so much for the suggestion. I will pass it on. I’m class of 1990. Yes you are right I wish I had this online stuff too.
