Love Fashion? Learn How to Sketch Your Own Styles (+ Stock Up on a Few Essentials!)

DIYs are good year-round, but especially where holidays are concerned. And with St. Patrick’s Day weekend, we’re in full force around here — everything from trendy outfits that you can wear to parties to green cocktails. But maybe you prefer (or someone you know prefers) drawing. Maybe one of you took our character illustration class and just couldn’t get enough. ;) Whatever your interests, we’ve got you covered in our CLASSES SECTION. If cartoons and characters tickle your fancy, head on over there and sign up for our FASHION ILLUSTRATION class.


In THIS FASHIONABLE CLASS, you’ll learn how to draw stylistic figures and poses, turn pattern and fabric images into illustrations, and create an art piece inspired by street style and fashion trends.

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:

  • COPIC CIAO BRUSH TIP MARKERS (BLACK, GRAY, SKIN TONE, HAIR COLOR, & TWO COLORS FOR THE OUTFIT): “Ciao 24pc Basic Set. Scores of anime, manga, and comics artists as well as landscape, product, architecture, and fashion designers prefer Copic markers because of their ultra-blendable, low odor, alcohol-based inks. Unlike water-based inks, which tend to pill and oversoak the paper while blending, Copics mix on the surface to deliver the wonderfully rich blends they’re known for. This outstanding performance has distinguished Copic markers as the celebrated coloring tool within professional, semi-professional, and hobby circles alike.”
  • FINE POINT BLACK MARKERS – SIZE 01, 03, 05 (MICRON)“When accuracy, minute details, and preservation count, the unparalleled archival quality of Pigma micron pens makes them everyone’s first choice. Artist, writers, and illustrators reach for Pigma micron and know their work is safeguarded with the permanence of Pigma ink. Experience smooth, skip-free writing and crisp ink colors that leave consistent lettering and lines every time. It has achieved universal appeal and is carried by technical professionals, artists and crafters like anthropologists, entomologists, scientists, research laboratories, archivists, architects, professional diamond cutters, cartoonists, manga and anime artists, illustrators, heirloom quilters, and decorative fabric artists. Features archival quality ink for use in acid-free environments, chemically stable, waterproof, fade resistant, no smears, feathers or bleed-through on most papers. Applicable for graphic art, scrapbook, archival recording, pen and ink illustrations, freehand art, rubber stamps, cartooning, and fabric design.”
  • WHITE SHARPIE PAINT MARKER“Oil-based opaque paint markers mark on light and dark surface. Use on virtually any surface: Metal, pottery, wood, rubber, glass, plastic, stone, and more. Quick drying.”
  • MIX MEDIA PAPER PAD (CANSON)“The Canson Foundation Mix Media pad is perfect for all of your mixed media needs. Ideal for the beginner, hobbyist, crafter, or price conscious artist.”

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
