What a fabulous opportunity. Can't wait to hear all about it and see tons of photos.


Wow! You're amazing Deb!

Beautiful sketch, Debbie, and with just the small amount of coloring that you did, I can see it holds the promise of something gorgeous.

Seriously, 12 Copic colors?! With my limited art vision and that palette, I'd guess you'd probably have to make monochromatic, sepia, or black and white art. I hope you'll share what you do make because even though I'll never be an artist, I learn so much from you ...and I love seeing your art. Have a super fun time in Italy!


Thank you so much for doing this blog. I use my Copic markers to color my sketches more than stamped images, so it has been very helpful to read through your posts on this blog!! I hope you continue to post as often as possible!! Thanks again!


This is my first time pay a quick visit at here and i am really happy to read all at single place.


Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I ove your gorgeous sketches! Your art always inspires me to pick up a pencil and give it a try... haven't had newerve to post anything yet~ Your work is always stunning.
Question. I have been an inking fool since our class at Anaheim. I am going to teach a few classes on background (Suzanne wanted me to do something on a few of my backgrounds I use. I wondered if it is ok if i also include some airbrush, faux stone and a couple others I learned in the class as long I I create my own teaching tools. I would teach to technique - not the same pictures.
Thank you

I would like to know what kind/brand is your spiral sketchbook?

Debbie Olson

Hi, Cheryl,

I generally use Copic Sketch books. Here is a link: http://store.copicmarker.com/collections/paper/sketchbooks
