I get messages daily asking how I do what I do... and it's hard to explain in an e-mail. It normally ends up sounding like, "well, you know, you just... draw... a thing you like..." So it gets difficult to explain things like using a light table, detailing multiple sketches, how to choose an effective composition, or the mysterious things I do in Photoshop.
Well, my darling creeps, I have good news.
I was approached a few weeks ago by the fabulously enthusiastic people at SKILLSHARE to teach a class specifically on my style, and how to develop your own. They're filming me while I go through my steps, and I get to walk each student through it. Killer.
How this works is you enroll in my class on Skillshare: skl.sh/18l2qyx
and once the class goes live at the end of December, you'll see my video tutorials, class projects, challenges, and prizes at the end of the course!
Use PROMO CODE: "CONCEPT" for an extra 20% off tuition if you sign up by FRIDAY 11/22/2013!
Some of the many awesome things about Skillshare, if you're unfamiliar with them, is that the classes are cheap, you do them at home, in your own time, and they only end when you're ready to finish it. All schools should be this awesome. Tons of amazing teachers work with me at Skillshare... artists from Pixar, Project Runway, NYC Design Week, Johnny Cupcakes and many other fabulous designers and artists who teach everything from book cover design to greeting cards. So you can browse all the listed courses and find your favorites, just like you'd do for college, but so much cheaper that it's absurd, you do it in your own time, and there are more specific classes with teachers actually working in the field!
And don't worry if you're not ready to take the class right now. It's going to be listed online indefinitely, as long as people are interested!
I take individual time with each of the students who sign up, and give advice about your work and portfolio.
I can't really express how excited I am to share my process with you, finally! So Happy early Yule, everyone! You get to learn my secrets! I'll keep you all posted with more details as they come up.
Until then, keep creeping!
