About This Class

c6d93843

Mock ups are an essential part of your art licensing portfolio. Mock ups help manufacturers, clients, and even yourself visualize what your artwork will and could look like on products. When you’re showing your work to potential clients and manufacturers, it might be a bit hard to visualize how your art could be placed on a ceramic mug or how it could be turned into a paper party ware set. However if you create some mock ups showing your ideas, it makes everything so much easier and will more often than not, lead to more licensing deals and opportunities.


In this course I will be going over my process of creating my own mock ups as well as where and how to find mock ups online. We’ll talk about drawing your own mock ups, using print on demand websites to mock up your work, and all of the best places you can find mock ups online.


PLEASE NOTE: I won’t be covering the process of actually making a pattern or artwork.

If you’re interested in learning how to create a surface pattern design collection, please watch my class on that here: http://skl.sh/2wQtxo9
If you’re interested in learning how to make a repeating pattern design, please watch my class on that

Photoshop. =) You are more than welcome to work in Illustrator if that’s your choice of program.
