This is where the message goes!

Having trouble coming up with something to draw? No worries - while you'll eventually learn how to start from a tiny seed of a thought and gradually nurture it into a complex concept to explore through design and illustration, it's perfectly fine not to be there just yet.

For now though, here's an idea that might interest you.

Fantasy Ice Cream Cart

Fantasy worlds are great. They've got magic, they've got swords, they've got quests and everything in between. But you know what they don't have?

ICE CREAM! What an oversight! What a travesty! But that's okay, you're here now, and you can fix it. Figure out how one could reasonably operate a cute little ice cream cart in a world without refrigerators. You can certainly use magic, but the more over-engineered the solution, the better!

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
