You made it! I’m so glad you’re here. Together, we’re going to create some fun line drawings you can use for many different purposes. Inside this course, you’ll find one or more short videos in each lesson labeled to make it easy for you to go back and revisit areas you’d like to focus on. I’ve included a wide cross section of humanity in my demo drawings to give you lots of options to mix and match as you create your own selfie. Dig in, have fun, and don’t be afraid to experiment. Let’s get started!
