In today’s tutorial, we will learn about… Err, sorry, this is not a tutorial. This is the “About Us” page. Let’s start again.

About us

Hello! We are Miro and Anika, the dad and daughter drawing duo behind Let’s Draw That! This is us, with some of our drawing tools. We have put in two pictures for you, so you do not need to do a headstand in front of your monitor. (Turning your phone upside down is cheating. Doing a headstand in front of your monitor is much more fun.)

About us: Miro

Hello! I am Miro.

About us: Anika

Hey! I’m Anika

We live in Canberra, the bush capital of Australia, in the land Down Under. We have been drawing together ever since Anika was very little. Well, she is a young lady these days, so it has been quite a few years now. She always liked dad’s amazing drawings. Here is one of Miro’s masterpieces:  

Dad’s most awesome earthworm masterpiece

These days, Anika draws far more than dad (Miro’s excuse is that he is not studying a double major in Arts). Particularly her people’s drawings are much fancier than the dad’s simple big-nose faces. Unsurprisingly, you will find that most of the cartoon character tutorials on this website are drawn by Anika. Here is one of her recent drawings:

Even after many years we still have so much fun drawing crazy cartoons together that we decided to start these web pages. While young ladies tend to have their own lives and dads are always busy, this is a great way for us to spend some time together doing what we both like and enjoy.

About these pages

So here’s hoping that these pages will inspire you to get drawing as well. You can draw by yourself, but getting your friends or kids to draw with you is always more fun.

The style presented here is a relatively easy cartoony one. Cartoons are a lot of fun, as there are no hard rules – you can draw anything you want in any way you want. A cat drawn from triangles? Why not?

Cartoons are also simple to draw even for kids and absolute beginners. However, we tend to add many details to the simple drawings that make them interesting for adults as well. The “advanced” tutorials here are not really that hard either, they just require a bit more patience, and feature some smaller details that might be a challenge to draw for younger kids.

The idea is that no matter your skill, you can find something interesting to draw here, and make your drawing as simple or as challenging as you want. For the adults drawing with your kid – these drawings will keep you both entertained.

About the drawing tools needed

You will only need some basic tools to follow along with our step-by-step drawing tutorials. Firstly some paper to draw on, obviously. All the tutorials here are drawn in pencil – any pencil will do for a start. Having an eraser to correct mistakes and clean up the sketch lines helps. Finally, having some colored pencils to finish your drawing is always a bonus.

These are the favorites we use for drawings on Let’s Draw That that we love and recommend:

Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencils
