Visual Thinker | Illustrator | SillyStrokes
Anyone can teach you how to draw, but what will set you aside is how well can you think in visuals.
Have meaningful, impactful and memorable visual conversations with your audience.
75% of drawing is THINKING and happens way before it reaches a paper. In this course I'll guide you towards practices to train your brain to think visually and take them to a canvas
If you find yourself with ideas that you cannot draw or take a lot of time, SPEED drawing is your answer. Learn how to make quick sketches of the ideas in your head
Think and Express in your own style, not the one you borrow from me. The course if designed in a way that encourages you to build your own processes and styles
Compile all your learnings with my tried and tested processes, layouts and systems to build engaging sketchnotes that you and your audience will love
Learn how you can use all these skills to solve communication/engagement problems from your clients or your own business
The tasks and exercises have been designed to cover a wide range of topics and skill sets. They will not only help you learn more, but create work you can show-off ;p
Make your work, work for you. Leverage your skills to build an audience who will be willing to pay for your work
We are what we eat. The same applies to our work. Our thought process depends on what we feed our brain, and so does our expression. After all, 75% of the drawing happens in our mind. We will focus on:
"Drawing takes a lot of time", hence I don't draw, "everything feels important when I take-notes" or that "My sketch-notes are a mess"
If this is how you feel about drawing your ideas, this module will help you through it. We will focus on:
Not everything you read/hear needs to go on the visual and hence it's important to pass it through filters. In this module, we focus on:
Add fun & depth to your visuals through clever metaphors. Learn to define the metaphors that you use every day & know how you can invent new ones.
Guest session by the Master of Metaphors: Dario himself

In this module, I will help you develop your unique processes & formulate your style.
Experience a major perspective shift through case-studies and well designed tasks. Deep-dive into practices that will help you find your own unique voice. Also learn how to build an audience and monetise your skill set in this new age digital world that's looking for new ways to communicate every day.
A session to reflect on our learnings, share our master projects and discuss how and where we can use all the learnings in our work and daily lives.
Q & A Session
I am switching my career after DYT. I loved how complex concepts were explained in simple ways. My Visual Thinking skills grew from 5/10 - 8/10 in just 5 weeks and I have already earned the money I invested in this course by monetising my learnings. I 100% recommend this course to people.
I always wanted to learn Sketchnoting , and I’m glad I learnt it from Miss Sillystrokes. Tanvi was very encouraging and patient with all of us. Apart from regular session, we would also have doubt clearing sessions & timely check-ins (for homework). I learnt a great deal! So much so that I started my visual newsletter.
I always sensed that I was visual thinker since a child. DYT helped in identifying my strengths, and areas of improvement. And helped me in making my thoughts towards my goals and my journey stronger. I am grateful to Tanvi for that, and for giving me this opportunity to learn, and interact with wonderful participants.
Thinking in visuals & drawing my thoughts is such a gain for me personally AND for work. Learning & being creative in DYT 1.0 & 2.0 really improved my quality of life! I loved the energy & good spirit of the group gatherings which motivated me to join all online meetings. We had so much fun–what a blast! with all the prompts we were amazed about the different angles to look at things. All the input from the participants made finishing my master project so much easier & better, thank you all for that! Will definitely join DYT 3.0!
