About This Class

D E S C R I P T I O N

Hi! I'm Katie Sanvick, an artist and designer living in Minnesota. In this class you will learn how to experiment with different mixed media to create fun and interesting illustrations, and how to turn your creations into products that sell on Society6.

I will take you through the creation process, showing you how to simplify what you see to create fun and loose illustrations, inspiring and showing you many tips and tricks along the way! You will gain the confidence and knowledge to take your illustrations to the next level as I show you how to prepare and upload your work to your own Society6 shop-applying what you've created onto phone cases, throw pillows, blankets and more! 

All levels of illustrators are welcome! I will outline the set of materials I love to use, but feel free to use any other materials you love to work with! This class is all is about getting your creativity on the page, so any kind of paper will do. Use your favorite sketchbook, or artist paper! By the end, you’ll have finished illustrations ready to sell.

Print-on-demand websites like Society6 handle the production and shipping of your artwork so you have more time to focus on creating. Set your own prices for specific merchandise and collect the royalties for each order, leaving you more time to focus on your work.
