From drawing 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.

I am now sending a weekly newsletter!
The Tuesday meetings are so enjoyable. I love that I get feedback on my drawings and my messaging. I'm now illustrating my LInkedin posts. And Visual Minds helped me to start 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.
Su Busson, coach
P.S. Since Su took my class, she has illustrated all her blog posts herself!
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!
Jon Leland, Video Mojo Coach
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.

My first business drawings on Linkedin
After a few weeks of sketching ... I’m sharing my first business drawing on LinkedIn today 🙀
I've been supported by a wonderful group of people in Ingrid Lill's excellent Visual Minds membership.
Mark Crossfield, Career Coach
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.
Justin Hamacher, Experience Design Leader
Marketing tactics & drawing
Thanks a lot – you rock mixing serious marketing tactics with drawing! It certainly gives me more confidence to express myself with drawing.
Nico Brier, Web designer
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!
Nadine Mazzola, Forest therapy guide
First drawings since childhood
Here are my first 'proper' drawings ever in my adulthood! It feels exciting and delightful.
Tarja Moles, Coach
About the Visual Minds Mess-to-message course:
"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!!!"
Not stuck anymore
I lost my fear to just draw an idea. I don't worry about perfection, and keep it simple. Now I'm happy to share my drawings when I want to catch people´s attention.
Through your feedback and your open sharing I am able to just start drawing. I am so grateful. Your courses totally moved me out of being stuck on my drawing path.
Xacintha Castillo, Restaurator
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!

Your course helped me shape my message
Your course helped me shape my message, so it became more unique and concise. Your authenticity, patience, and willingness to help me communicate is inspiring and empowering. Thank you for the wonderful community you have created.
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.
Marian Blum, Bluming Wellness
I found my style
Ich habe früher schon mal einen Sketchnote-Kurse gemacht. Was mir aber dabei nicht gelungen ist, ist meinen Zeichenstil für Figuren zu finden. Und mit Ingrids Hilfe ist das gelungen. Ich bin begeistert!
I use drawings for chemistry videos
Tak for et vildt godt kursus. Det har virkeligt løftet mine tegninger og flipped-classroom-videoer helt vildt. Jeg har lavet en video her til aften til mine elever, hvor jeg bruger, hvad jeg har lært i dag.
Christian Giehse, chemistry teacher at Hellerup Gymnasium
Thanks for teaching us to draw in such a simple and fun way!
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.
Manuela Pauer, coach
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.
