Great news everyone! No longer do you need to struggle making your artwork digital, and forego even a Skillshare course because you have no experience with Adobe Illustrator.
This course is designed to teach you all the ins and outs of Illustrator, so that you can become comfortable and efficient with the program. Whether you have never even opened Illustrator, or have but are still intimidated by it, you are in the perfect class. With a multitude of short video tutorials, I will help you setup your project and workspace, demonstrate tool functions, and also share some incredibly helpful keyboard shortcuts and other tips that will save you hours on your project.

What You'll Make
For this class you will be recreating one of your favorite print ads from history. The point of this project isn't simply to copy another artist's work, but rather to help you build something from the knowledge you learn in the course. I want you to focus on the tools rather than design principles, though hopefully you take something away from reconstructing great work and studying why it was successful. I will give you all you need to be able to come away with a finished digital piece of artwork. You will come away more confident and capable with the truly amazing program that is Adobe Illustrator. To ensure this, you have your classmates to help each other, who will be sharing resources, answering questions, and giving feedback all along the way.

I am a graphic designer and illustrator raised in the Great Northwest, now living in Austin, Texas with my wife and little boy. After graduating with a BFA in graphic design, I started my career as an information designer and illustrator at Column Five Media. The digital illustration courses I took in college paid off, as I found that more and more clients were requesting illustration work in their designs. Merging both skills together I have been able attract all types of work, including my work in advertising at Arnold Worldwide.
Now, my wife and I run our own design and illustration studio full-time, named Brave the Woods.
