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.

THEY TOOK THE BUTTONS!

Did you hear? It was awful. Aliens attacked! We expected it would happen, but... not like this. We didn't stand a chance, and didn't even have the opportunity to fight back.

Well, in truth, they didn't actually really fight, or harm us. But what they did was so much worse. They took our BUTTONS! They said that we were bad little worms and they wouldn't give them back until we learned to behave and stop warring with one another over "petty" things. They can't possibly know how important it is that my sports team win against theirs!

Anyway, so we need to figure out another solution. Please! Design an alternative way to use a tool or appliance that traditionally uses buttons. It's an emergency!

Staedtler Pigment Liners

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).
