How to Draw Freeman Colby #3: Nurse Sarah Low

How to Draw Freeman Colby #3:

Sarah Low volunteered as a nurse in 1862, as the Civil War heated up and sick & wounded soldiers flooded the nation’s hospitals. By the time we meet her in Freeman Colby Vol. 2, she is running her own ward at Armory Square Hospital (Washington, D.C.).

This draw-along tutorial shows you how Marek builds a cartoon scene of Nurse Low writing letters — after attending to her endless medical duties, of course!


  • pencil
  • pen and/or marker (black ink)
  • paper (any size; Marek’s using 8.5″x11″)
  • eraser
