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.

Everything a Magic Vessel

Look, I get it. Every djinn and their mother wants the shiniest, most opulent bottle to call their eternal prison. I'm even willing to accept that beyond the vanity of it all, the eye-catching nature of it even serves a purpose, making it more likely that if found, your unwitting saviour might deign to clean it off and renew its sparkle.

But come ON, the times have changed! The Ottoman Empire has fallen, and there are so many new and interesting prisons to call home!

Pick a container - anything with four "walls" and a lid - and design the djinn that would call it home. Consider how elements of the vessel would reflect upon the djinn's own design, and vice versa!

Wescott Grid Ruler

Wescott Grid Ruler

Every now and then I'll get someone asking me about which ruler I use in my videos. It's this Wescott grid ruler that I picked up ages ago. While having a transparent grid is useful for figuring out spacing and perpendicularity, it ultimately not something that you can't achieve with any old ruler (or a piece of paper you've folded into a hard edge). Might require a little more attention, a little more focus, but you don't need a fancy tool for this.

But hey, if you want one, who am I to stop you?
