Explore perspective, color, and light through the medium of acrylic markers to draw a place that brings you joy

A course by Angela Pan

An illustration, like a photo, has the ability to transport you to the place it depicts, and capture the spirit of even a fleeting moment. For artist Angela Pan, what fuels her work is her passion for communicating the beauty that she sees in the world around her. This strong desire to tell her own stories with her work is what led her to become a full-time, self-employed artist, collaborating with different brands and creating products such as art books, prints, and art kits.

In this course, she teaches you the principles of perspective, composition, lighting, and color to paint a scene of your choice. Explore the medium of acrylic markers to translate a scene into a beautiful illustration that you can treasure.

Artist

Angela Pan is a Chinese-Canadian artist based in Vancouver. She specializes in travel illustrations using acrylic markers and is inspired by the beauty in the world around her. Angela's love for recognizing the fleeting, often unnoticed, precious moments is what fuels her art. Her work has a recognizably colorful aesthetic with a focus on perspective, lighting, simple lines, and striking composition. Angela studied animation at Sheridan College in Ontario, Canada, where she learned the majority of the art fundamentals that made her the artist she is today. After graduating, she moved to Vancouver, and began a career in 2D and 3D animation, which she pursued for seven years.

However, with a strong desire to tell her own stories through her art and explore her potential, Angela left her job in 2020 and became a full-time, self-employed artist and content creator. Since then, she’s created products such as art books, comics, prints, and postcard sets, and has collaborated with the brand Mossery to produce art kits, planners, and sketchbooks. She also shares her passion and expertise through her YouTube channel.
