Creating an art print you can sell from your doodles.
I am an artist and illustrator who makes busy, bold, fun, funny, colorful artworks.
Everything I create starts off as simple drawings made with a pen in my sketchbook. Then, using an array of tools, tips and tricks these doodles become artwork for... well, anything, from t-shirts, posters, stickers, homewares to murals, performance pieces, animations and more.
In this class we will make a fun doodle illustration that can be used as an art print or a screen print (or even a t-shirt design).
The work will come from your doodles! No need to worry about being an expert drawer or artist. The work will retain a charming hand drawn and imaginative quality.
Hopefully you will leave the class feeling inspired and energised to make your work and have a cool art print you can sell on your website.
I am going to share with you some of the processes I use to create my work.
What You'll Learn
By walking through my own creation process, I am going to arm you with a cavalcade of skills to create a versatile art print. The artwork can be appropriated for anything you like – whether its a t-shirt, an album cover, or a skate deck etc.
What You'll Do
You will use your hands, heart, eyes and brain to draw things on paper with a pen. You will loosen up and get inspired and create an unexpected hand drawn composition. Then you will use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to create a digital graphic that can be an art print (that you can sell) or repurpose as a design for a multitude of outputs (such as t-shirts, posters, packaging design etc)
The process will move along these lines:
Think > Draw > Digitize > Tweak > Vectorize > Color > Output.
You will learn both computer and cognitive skills to create an art print from your doodles to be put out into the world. You will have fun and feel inspired to create, draw and dream!
This is a beginner level class because some prior knowledge of Adobe Illustrator is required. A tiny bit of Photoshop will be needed too. Students should have access to Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop which you can download a free trial of at Adobe.com. Everything will be explained so don't worry if you don't know that much about these programs. You'll learn lots of nice tips for these programs along the way.
