G'day friends,

Welcome to the jlbCREATIVE "WHIMSICAL ILLUSTRATION" online workshop!

This extensive course takes you through the cumulative wealth of tips/tricks and techniques I have learned throughout my years of illustrative play. Not only do we look at the foundation principles of drawing our whimsical creations, we also look at creative processes and exercises to stimulate the imagination. Each lesson is broken down into manageable steps for a streamlined learning process.

The chronological format of this course ensures that, as you progress, you are using and building on the skills acquired from the lessons before.

Not only will you create fabulous illustrations along the way (with mini-lessons in urban sketching and fashion illustration), the course will wrap up all of your new knowledge into a neat package of 3, guided, journal spread tutorials.

This course is the answer to one of the questions I get asked the most - "how do you do that?"... Well, here's how!

Take a look at the Course Curriculum below to get a better look at the myriad of lessons on offer.
