Week 23

Road Trip

Hey Art Maker!

One of the best things about summer is going on a Road Trip! Whether you drive to the desert, mountains or the beach, it’s never really about the destination as much a it’s about the journey. I hope you enjoy the journey with this weeks prompts!


I created this map illustration with my Gouache Paintbox brushes.

Weekly Goal

If you only draw one piece this week,

draw some mountains!

I created this nature scene as my project for my Realistic Papercut Skillshare class. If you’d like to learn how to cut digital shapes out of real paper, create lighting effects and manipulate shadows then you’ll love my latest class. New users can get 1 month free!


*1 month free for new members.

NEW Skillshare Class
Coming Soon!

In this class you’ll learn how to manipulate text while you create a vintage style postcard in Procreate! I’ll teach you a handful of text effects like 3D block shadowing, inner strokes and more! At the end of the class, you’ll have an awesome postcard that you can mail to a friend or family member!


Monthly Project

If you only draw one piece this month, design a postcard!

This month’s Making Art Everyday theme is Vacation Mode, where we will draw all kinds of vacation destinations. Travel postcards are a perfect way to utilize all those vacation-themed drawings!


Art-Maker Spotlight

This week’s featured artist is Debbie Mansou, (@iamdebbiemansour) Debbie created her robot piece as part of a DTIYS challenge. She used brushes from the Bardot Brush Pencil Box set. “I always sketch my drawing with Bardot Pencil first, and then color it in by hand with Bardot Pencil Smooth.

Lastly, “I finish my drawing off with Bardot Quick Scribble, which instantly gives everything a great texture.”


Debbie is inspired by the children’s picture books she reads with her daughter. “I always discover new techniques, color palettes and compositions in them.”

If you’d like to be a featured MAE artist, be sure to use the #bardotbrush so we can find your artwork!
