Meet Your Mentors

Chantal Vincent

Based in Sydney, Australia, Chantal fills her sketchbooks with portrait studies and urban sketches. She prefers pencil, ink and watercolor for their ease of use and portability, although she also loves to play with new materials and ways of approaching the creative process. 

I enjoy the stillness of the moment whilst drawing. It allows me to observe and appreciate things more deeply.

France Van Stone

Based in New Jersey, France is a French-American, self-taught artist, art teacher and the author of the book Sketch!, which inspires “non-artists” to build a daily drawing habit.

Like all kids, I was given pencils and paper and was told to draw. At some point in life, some of us stop drawing. I just never stopped.

Gunhild Hope

Based in Norway, Gunhild is a portrait artist who loves to experiment with a variety of media and enjoys mixing them together. Her favourite tool is the ballpoint pen.

Drawing is a creative way to express myself, to communicate, and to better understand both myself and the world around me.

Margriet Aasman

After working for 30 years in Yukon, Canada, as a creative director in her own brand communications company, Margriet retired early to set up a clay studio in her house and start a daily drawing habit.

When I don’t draw I become restless and feel like I should be. The minute I sit down with a pencil or pen, I feel calm and in the right place.

Patrick Hochstenbach

Patrick is an illustrator and comic artist from Brugge in Belgium. He loves to work with brush and ink and is influenced by many Franco-Belgian artists such as Hergé, Franquin, Tardi and Giraud.

Drawing for me is a perfect way to relax and switch off my mind. Many people think you need to be very good at it to enjoy it. This is not the case. Drawing is a way to express yourself and this can be done at any skill level.

Robin Hilthouse

Robin is an art lecturer in The Netherlands who teaches traditional and digital drawing techniques. As an artist, his specialty is creating extraordinarily detailed portraits using everyday ballpoint pens.

Why do I draw? I simply have to. It’s second nature. On the bus, on the phone, in a meeting, during my holidays…I couldn’t imagine myself without this amazing way of expression.

Muses for Days

The featured artists have hand-picked an inspiring reference photo for each of their drawing tips from our library of hundreds of thousands of faces.

The challenge will feature reference photos from a diverse group of inspiring muses, including new images from Rick Niece and Jenell Duhhcid – muses who have inspired thousands of portrait artists around the world to date. 

Face It (Not) Alone
