Site Overview

This website is designed to guide you toward your sketchbook, so there is no menu or index. Each click should bring you closer to an end page with a drawing exercise.

If you've come here, though, you really want to know more! Below is an overview of the drawing practice resources on this website. It includes resources for artists that are still there but are hidden and not directly available through clicking links on the website. I am actively searching for great drawing exercises and the ideal online presentation.

The Newsletter

I have a newsletter I send out every Friday. It's generally a short article with some thought for artists to ponder. You can subscribe here or dive into the archive first here to see if it is your cup of tea.

I had the idea of chaining drawing exercises that combined well together, and the first approach was one where you were guided through a slideshow that presented the steps in sequence. You can find the workouts here.


started writing guides after realizing that these were timeless resources. Sharing them in one newsletter article or a social media post didn't seem right. You can find them here.


I'm working on a podcast designed to be listened to while drawing. I'm still working out the right format for it. You can find episodes I made here.

Instagram Tutorial Carousels

I made tutorials for Instagram long ago. You can see a selection of my favorite ones here.

Comparing Your Art

I made this page where you can select a reference photo and then look through a camera on your phone with the reference image transparently overlaid to compare your drawing to the reference image. The idea is to see if you got proportions and such wrong.

I have since realized that we are not cameras; we are not copying machines. We should use reference images, but we do not have to follow them to the tee. We should allow ourselves to deviate from the reference, especially to say something about it.

You may find it useful, so you can find it here.

I also have some references prepared if you don't have any. You can go to this version, select a reference photo to draw, and then compare your drawing to the reference.

Daily Drawing Exercises

I had a slew of drawing exercises presented in a vertical format to scroll through and follow step by step. The idea was that vertical scrolling was more natural on screens as we're already used to scrolling that way. They were set up as daily exercises and sent out in a daily version of my newsletter. This overwhelmed people who were subscribed to it, so I abandoned the daily email. The exercises are still there. My views on what good drawing exercises are have evolved, but you can still find them here.


I have a YouTube channel where I am active, on and off. You can find it here.


I share slides with forms and form studies on Pinterest. These are doing well over there: people like to pin them to their boards, and others find them. You can see my Pinterest here.


I share my sketchbook pages here on Instagram here. I share the same pages at the top of my newsletter articles. Instagram is where it all started, but I now place my main art and writing on my website.


Lastly, there is an about page about this website. You can find it here.
