About this FieldTrip


On this FieldTrip, you’ll visit the Designit offices to drink and draw with Gabi Anderson, a Bay Area creative that formed her watercolor technique 10 years ago when she was an itty bitty illustration student at the Rhode Island School of Design. You’ll learn about her drawing process, layered watercolor technique, and weird things that have been inspiring her recently. Learn a new technique while sipping on wine, munching on snacks and chatting with other Bay Area creatives. You’re sure to leave with a piece of art that will make you consider quitting your day job.

About the speaker

Gabi Anderson is a San Francisco based creative with 10 years of experience in design and illustration. With a diverse skill set—developed from her early days at the Rhode Island School of Design—she is constantly bouncing between use of graphics, digital drawing, and water coloring to create her weird and whimsical portraits.

Like most superheroes, she has an alter ego that happens to work in design - helping develop strong brand and marketing collateral for Bay Area brands.

Select design and illustration clients include: Shutterfly, AirBnB, Google: Made with Code, ThirdLove, ManRepeller, and her mom (her biggest fan). See some of her sketches and experiments on Instagram @gabianderson_studio or on her site at
