An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. It’s important to establish working practices that allow each element of the process to work effectively. Although any pencil will do for mastering the basics of drawing, cheap ones can be scratchy and unsatisfying to work with.

I believe that becoming an illustrator is not difficult, but you have to be smart about what you do. In 2007, Martin Salisbury was a member of the judging panel for the prestigious Bologna Ragazzi Award in Italy. I’ve noticed how often couples and friends dress alike, and how they usually walk perfectly in step with each other. Of all the pursuits open to us, drawing is perhaps the easiest to take up, requiring only minimal equipment: a pencil and some blank paper. Some very simple exercises should limber you up and get you comfortable with holding a pencil and pushing it about on the paper.For fiddly erasing I often use a special eraser that comes in the form of a pencil and can be sharpened to a point. You probably noticed that the quality of your lines changed as the pencil wore down and your hand position altered.

This Drawing and Illustration for Beginners course is for everyone who wants to be more creative, no matter their skill level. All you need is a pencil, a bit of blank paper and the expert guidance you will find within these pages. Experiment with drawing different lines, all the while keeping in mind the way you are holding the pencil and keep the movement of your hand articulated from the wrist, elbow or shoulder.The more your skills develop the more important the grade and type of paper will become, but at the novice stage expensive paper only serves to inhibit your freedom to make mistakes. There’s absolutely no shame in erasing mistakes and rough guidelines – they are an important part of the drawing process. A good illustration definition is that it is a visual explanation of a text, which can be used in books, newspapers, posters, video games, films or animations. A work of art in itself This book is the best for anyone interested in illustration whether as a practitioner or armchair artist.

His books include Children’s Picturebooks: The Art of Visual Storytelling, The Illustrated Dust Jacket: 1920–1970, and Miroslav Sasek in the Illustrators series. Martin argues that at this stage, the drawn line seems to disappear, as graphic shapes, colour and alternative techniques take over. The aim of this eight-week drawing and illustration course is to introduce you to creative ways of visually communicating ideas. Whether you're a seasoned artist or just starting on your creative journey, we have everything you need to bring your ideas to life.Much like a typical writing grip but with the pencil more upright, this grip is good for fine detailed work or for drawing in a small sketchbook. Martin Salisbury sets out by explaining the fundamentals of this exciting discipline, before outlining the basic principles of line, tone, composition and colour through inspiring examples. H. Shepard's 'Winnie-the-Pooh' sketches; William Morris book designs; wood-engraved printing blocks by artists such as Eric Ravilious and Paul Nash; botanical illustrations by Jacques le Moyne de Morgues and Georg Ehret; and many other works by artists as diverse as John Tenniel and Kay Nielsen. Martin currently acts as External Examiner (BA Hons Illustration) at the University of Westminster and Southampton Solent University. Kerry Lemon sums the up what the joy of drawing can be in her section on scaling drawing up to hoarding size, “It is my very favourite thing to do”.

Assisting students through exercises and case studies, this guide explores the often-unseen world of draftsmanship that underpins finished illustration work. From Vyara Boyadjieva’s intuitive approach to drawing from life to Yann Kebi’s integration of rough sketches into editorial illustrations, the book represents the diverse ways in which drawing translates into illustration. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year.Try drawing a straight line between them in one single fluid motion, moving your whole arm across the paper and trying to keep the pencil pressure firm and even. Above all, drawing should never be boring, so if you find a subject tedious, accept that it’s not for you at that time, and move on. In these activities are two of the essential elements of drawing: selection and simplification, and uninhibited mark making.
