This Class is For You
This class is for designers and TV fanboys and fangirls alike. If you're a designer with a TV habit, this class may make your head explode.
What You'll Learn
This class will provide an opportunity for you to stretch your sketching and illustrating muscles while giving you an excuse to indulge in some quality TV time. We'll be using a really fun project - creatively interpreting and illustrating a scene or episode from your favorite TV show - to learn and hone the following skills, among others:
This Class is Hands-On!
You'll be working on your project as we go, sharing your various iterations for feedback from classmates along the way. Lean on one another to help bubble up and improve your best ideas. In my lecture videos I share some personal tips and tricks to fasten your workflow and inspiration from around the web that you can channel into your own project.
Your final project that you'll be sharing with us can be digital or analog. It should include:
Access to Illustrator and/or Photoshop is highly recommended. You can get the trial version of these from Adobe's website. A slight obsession with TV shows is also recommended.
Hi there! My name's Ricky Linn and I like to think of myself as a robot simply for the fact that I wish to trick my brain into thinking that I do not require sleep.
I love anything and everything that is mid-century design and my work is incredibly influenced by the masters that have come before us, while infusing my own personality into the work I create. Outside of school, I put on my freelancer hat and have worked with Cisco, Pepsi, JESS3, Promojam, Function Drinks, Cambium Learning, and Boxee, to name a few, as well as several startups and individuals. You can also find my work scattered and featured on various design blogs online.
