Draw Happy

Carefree and
Flowing Figures

The online workshop for my #1 Bestselling book

Ready to go from thinking “I can’t draw a stick figure” to producing gorgeous, well-proportioned illustrations?

My first job was as a Fashion Illustrator, and over the years I devised my own methods for drawing beautiful, in-proportion figures. We start with the concepts in my book ‘Fabulous Figures’ and then develop them further!

The workshop includes my signature “Heartlines” method which uses hearts to help you construct your figures! When you realise how much easier this is to draw fabulous figures you will be writing me a little love letter!!

You’ll learn how to create different proportions such as whimsical proportions, children, juicy or bigger figures, fashion figures and more! This way you’ll be able to widen your skillset and draw more people!

Let's get confident drawing figures from top to toe!

Folkloric Ladies

I think as my style of girls as ‘Folkloric’ and this workshop draws on the rich and various vein in which we can celebrate color, movement, costume and glorious life! Folkloric traditions exists across all cultures around the world and Folklore treasures tradition and the heartbeat of people. Modern life has pushed it to one side and as artists, we are the poorer for that because it is full of nourishing inspiration.

In ‘Fabulous Figures’ we embrace folkloric elements to enrich our art and creativity!

    “I drew this girl using what I’ve learned so far in this class and I also looked at the book for some guidance (and a few reference images online). One month ago I literally could not draw a person and thanks to Jane I could actually do this.”

    Ronelia, South Africa

    “I was amazed about how great everyone’s warmup lessons were coming out. I thought that maybe most of the ladies already knew how to draw. I followed the lesson and now it looks like I know how to draw, haha! That was a FABULOUS, NO FAIL tutorial! Jane, you are a great teacher!“

    Joni, USA
