  • Visualize strategies and solutions for your clients - and for your own business
  • Sketch on a whiteboard with confidence for teaching and presentations
  • Infuse your business with fun and creativity!

How long does it take? 

Forget the idea that drawing requires a lot of time. Yes, you can always improve - but this course gets you started in (almost) no time! 

This self-paced class includes:

  • Short, engaging videos.
  • Downloadable worksheets for practice.
  • Simple materials: just printer paper, a pencil, and a fineliner.

You can finish it in a few hours. And the feedback ensures that you are on the right track. 

 

But - there is a lesson about "proportions" in the class, so you know what to pay attention to. 

I teach drawing in an easy,  practical and systematic way

This is the course I wish had existed when I started out. Many drawing tutorials are too complicated. I deliberately kept the lessons very short and concise. 


Based on easy-to follow step-by-step method.

And once you understand how it works, you can tweak them and start playing.

In this class  the focus is on the most important topic:  Faces and figures, which is the most fun and the most important thing to learn.If you can draw a figure, everything else is easy!


But... maybe I don't have talent?

get help transpI get it. Really, I do. We have heard that drawing is "art", and that you need "talent" for it. But nobody actually taught you drawing, right? We all learned to write, but not to draw.  

You don't need talent. You need the right instructions.

How it works: Self study course & feedback

I'm always blown away how FAST people can improve their drawing, when given the right instructions. It may take just 30 minutes to transform your drawing game from "This is embarrassing" to "Hey, I actually love this little figure that I created".

Why learn from me?


Hi, I'm Ingrid Lill -  communication designer turned visual thinking enthusiast.

I have drawn all my life, but for the longest time, I didn't dare to use my drawings professionally.

Like many other entrepreneurs, I thought I had to focus on my "bottom line", not on "art" or fun drawings. Boy, was I wrong!

It changed my life when I discovered that drawing doesn't have to be "art" and that it can be easy AND USEFUL. I learned how to use simple sketches to gain clarity for my clients.

It brought more creativity, fun, and beauty to my business, and I'm making way more money than "before the pencil".

Now I am on a mission to show that for creative spirits, sketching isn't a luxury but a necessity.

So... Take up that pencil already!

From stickmen to client illustrations in 4 weeks

In just four weeks, I went from drawing stickmen (if that!) to a client putting my illustration on her corporate greeting cards... Just by watching Ingrid's online lessons and practicing with the Tuesday group.

Ingrid is right. You don't need talent—you just need the right instructions and a non-judgmental community to practice your art.

Now I have the courage to share my sketches

I've been sketchnoting for a while but always hesitated to post my work. I was avoiding to draw proper figures and faces.  The courage to just go for it and share my work absolutely came from your course! I
You're so right - no one cares about imperfect lines. Instead, people appreciate and enjoy the sketches. 

I am really happy to be part of this creative community of nice people with such exciting professions!"

I started an illustrated newsletter

The Tuesday meetings are so enjoyable - while you learn a ton. I'm now illustrating my LInkedin posts, and I started a weekly newsletter- with illustration, of course!

I always dreamed of being able to illustrate

I  always dreamed of being able to illustrate a little bit - for my blog and everyday stories. But I drew worse than a kindergarten child and my attempts quickly ended in frustration. Then Lill's  course came along. Drawing was suddenly really fun and my pictures became much better. Lill´'s feedback on the drawings was worth its weight in gold. So if you say you can't draw but would love to, this course is definitely for you.

Like learning a new language

Visual Minds is challenging in a good way. I begin to understand the principles of drawing for clarity, and to convey a message. Almost as if I am learning a new language - visual literacy!"

Clarity – and fun

I love the exercises. They help me get clear about my offerings. And it is so much fun to draw along with you!

I love that you make it so simple. Before, when I looked at a comic in a newspaper I though: ”That's so difficult, I could never do something like that”.  But then I took the first course from you and it's: “Oh I can do that.”
Now, I can just draw something that communicates my message - saving time and energy.

Exactly what I was hoping to learn

Ingrid thanks for a great session today, and all the knowledge you shared. I spent the day working on cartoon characters for my character voice portfolio…pretty fun. This was exactly what I was hoping to get from the course.

Marketing tactics & drawing

Thanks a lot – you rock mixing serious marketing tactics with drawing! Your course gives me more confidence to express myself with drawing.

Found my voice

I did as you said and channeled what was in my heart. This way it felt much easier to draw. So I trusted it and went!  It came out pretty much the first time. I knew it didn't have to be perfect.

That's how I started to find my voice, and it got the ball rolling!

First drawings since childhood


Every single class was helpful and raised new options to explore and ponder. Now I see clearly what I want and don't want right now. And, consequently, discover that I needed to carve out more time and space for my creative expression. A big, big thank you!!!"

Tarja Moles, Author andCoach

My first 'proper' drawings ever in my adulthood! It feels exciting and delightful.

Not stuck anymore

I lost my fear to just draw an idea. I don't worry about perfection, and  keep it simple. Through your feedback I'm now happy to just sketch and share my drawings when I want to catch people´s attention.

I am so grateful. Your course totally moved me out of being stuck on my drawing path.

Refreshing! 

 Absolutely love the Tuesday evenings with Ingrid Lill. She is a professional illustrator. Tonights theme was "going crazy" with bright colors. Certainly got my mind on something else – I feel refreshed!

I didn't want to die with my "true colours” left inside

I’m slowly “coming out” 🌈 as an artist 👨‍🎨Something deep down that was being held until retirement or “some other day” in a distant future. Truth is I don’t plan on retiring, and we never know if we do actually have another tomorrow.
So I thought fuck it!
I’m now on my 3rd lesson and starting to sketch my business story board.
What magic are you keeping small? Don’t die with any of “your true colours” left inside.

And... I think you are right….I may have found my style!

It feels like I have a whole new business that I look forward to sharing everyday.

I was stuck on drafting content for my coaching business. It was never good enough. Never compelling enough. It was sooo frustrating, and I knew it was a big waste of time.

In the Visual Minds group, Ingrid helped me clarify my business, my offerings, and got me started expressing myself with sketches. I love it! Ingrid is very smart about business and marketing. She gets right to the point!

Plus: I'm not an artist but Ingrid showed that anyone could learn to sketch their ideas. 

I'm so much more engaged creatively with my business--it feels like a whole new business that I look forward to sharing everyday.

Ingrid is the real deal. She's super knowledgeable, loves what she does and knows how to instruct her clients to develop creatively and professionally.

I found my style

I have already taken a sketchnote course before. However, what I failed to achieve then was finding my drawing style for characters. But with Ingrid's help, I have succeeded. I am thrilled!

Drawings for flipped-classroom videos


Thank you for an amazing course. It has really elevated my drawings and flipped-classroom videos tremendously. I made a video tonight for my students, using what I have learned today.

I never thought I could draw 

So I really never thought I could draw... But I love visuals and I enjoy learning, and the amazing Ingrid Lill told us that we all can draw, so here we go. 
Here is my drawing showing some "inner characters"
 😊 Thank you, Ingrid, for teaching us how to draw in such a simple and fun way! Can't wait to learn how to create more visuals.

I thoroughly recommend attending a course or workshop, or just spending a little time with Ingrid. I have watched her untangle hot messes of really great ideas from super-smart people and arrive at insights that blow them away.
