Meet JEN & INK: The Ballpoint E-Course

Jen & Ink is a self-paced e-course designed to help you learn my unique ballpoint pen drawing techniques. With 5 lessons and almost 3 hours of up close and personal video, I will walk you through my entire drawing process. By the end, you will have the tools to create your own 1-color ballpoint drawing.


I put together a little preview video of course materials.

  • INSTANT access to 5 in-depth lessons, each including step-by-step videos.
  • Almost 3 HOURS of up close and personal drawing video.
  • UNLIMITED lifetime access to the course material, including any future updates.
  • MEMBERSHIP in the private Jen & Ink Facebook group, where you can ask questions and share your work.

Upon purchase you will have unlimited access to the materials, so you can work at your own pace, and can come and go as you please. No deadlines. No pressure to create!


Head on over to the Jen & Ink course page for more details.

I thank you friends, for your virtual encouragement as I built this course. It was a lot of work, but I loved every minute of it and I am so proud of what I made! 

Until next time. Ciao!

I still have a lot of work to do, but I'm making progress. In this online video course, I'll share my abstract ballpoint pen secrets through a series of step-by-step videos. It will be a paid course, but it will be VERY reasonable. (I promise!)

Here's a little sped up preview of the video I recorded:

I don't know how long it will take for me to shoot and edit all of the video, but I'm aiming to launch my course sometime in September or early October.

My lovely mailing list members will be first to know when the course is live.

Added bonus for joining the list:

I've made a hyperlapse video of my drawing process!  You'll have access to it upon joining the list and confirming your email address. Expect emails from me about once a month with more behind the scenes content.  You'll also be first to know about about new work and exclusive sales. It's a party. Trust me!

Gotta go work on my course. Ciao!

A Look Inside My Sketchbook

Hi there. How are you?

Summers are busy around here, and I haven't had much time to work in my studio lately.  If I don't get my art fix, I get pretty crabby, so I've had to make away from my studio.

I've been channeling all of my creativity into my sketchbook, which comes with me everywhere I go.

Care to have a look inside?

Stars & Stripes Forever

Stripes have been popping up in my sketches lately.  I like the way they play against the organic forms that I naturally draw.

Months in the Making

I started and abandoned this drawing months ago. (See the earlier version HERE.)  After a lovely fan left an encouraging comment on my blog, I decided to finish it up.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, and my fan was too. (She bought a print! Thanks Lisa!)

An Elegant Emerald

I'm usually really drawn to the yellow-green pen my set of 8 Bic Crystals, but this emerald green was calling to me. There's a real elegance to this color that I'm totally digging right now. You'll probably see more in this color soon.

 Adding a little pop of pink really brought this sketchbook drawing to life.

A Pop of Pink

I decided to use pink sparingly in this composition. I like how it adds a little variety to the composition, instead of it being the same all over.

I'm planning on designing a 2018 calendar and you'll most likely see some of these sketches as backdrops for the pages. Stay tuned my friends.

Want a Print Made?

If you're fond of my sketches do head on over to my shop. I've made a small collection of prints from my most favorite sketchbook pages.

Don't see what you're looking for?

I'd be happy to make one special for you. Just get in touch!

Until next time. Ciao!
