About This Class


In this class, you'll learn how to create block print style illustrations on your iPad in Procreate.  I’ll show you every step of my process from creating the block print stamps, to creating a balanced composition.  When you watch this class, you’ll get all of my block print brushes as free downloads so you can start playing around with the process immediately.

You'll learn how to:

  • create a simple block print bird illustration with a short quote
  • create a carved block print look on your illustrations
  • use my free texture brushes, so you can easily add a stamped texture to your work
  • create a menagerie of plants and animals using several brush stamps to combine a hand drawn look with a traced solid block print style
  • combine plant and flower elements to make a graceful bouquet with simple hand drawn flowers and leaves
  • balance a bouquet with text, color, and asymmetry to create visual interest

The amazing thing about this process is that you can turn anything into a block print stamp that you can use over and over in Procreate.  You can draw from life, or use photographs to trace the shapes or figures you want to turn into a stamp. Once you build up your toolbox of stamps, you can create tons of compositions in Procreate in just a few minutes.  I was inspired to dig deep into block printing after seeing Abbie's Nurse's awesome linocut tutorial.

All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus.  I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger.
