I like to draw objects that have a shape or colour that surprises and pleases me. I can draw simple markers for instance because I enjoy their shape and colourful presence, or a water boiler or even a garbage bin. If something strikes and pleases me, I like to draw it.
Markers, this, as are many on this page, is one of the tutorial examples I create to then create the tutorial itself.
A camera. When I was about I don't know how many years old, my god parents gave me a camera in a jeans bag. Oh I loved that thing. But I took it with me to the beach and well, the button ended up rusty after a few years and it became difficult to press it, so sad. I kept the bag for a very long time until someone stole it, just like other precious things.
A light bulb from the Philips Hue series, you can change the colours and use time control and even scenes to change colours dynamically. It is so handy to have one to change the entire 'feel' of a room.
A teapot. Because I needed one for another illustration. And you can find that one on one of the other pages. Which one? This one! Go find it.
I drew this one to show the students what you can do with brushes, that helps them to practise the use of the different shapes and sizes and it shows them how to draw a wallet during this course.
Paint cans with colourful paint in them, just fun to draw and to explain how to do it, too. These can be drawn after six Illustrator lessons, although you can create them after three if you create the twirly bits differently.
Cute pots. I once created vanilla perfume in a stainless steel variation with a glass lid. A 'Nose' came over one day, who told me this was impossible. So, I tricked him and let him smell three different vanilla perfumes (two were commercial ones). I asked him which was the best. He chose mine wahahahahahahahaha 🤣
