About This Class

In this class, you will create a simple character from basic shapes, make a template of it using adobe illustrator, and then use that as a guide to make a cute bookmark made of felt material.


You will also be introduced you to my Beanie characters, namely Kayla, Hammy, Sealo, Dodger, Smiley, Clayton and Ratkins! I just love coming up with Random names! :D

I hope you enjoy my class! :)

Designing my Dreams

Hi there, I'm MiciROX! :)

Recently I've been working on my webcomics called Bunster and Hariet!

It's a webcomic about a girl and her conflicting thoughts and indecisiveness, interpreted in the form of cute bunnies. I actually have a tutorial on how the webcomics are made, do check it out!

I've also just finished my dad's quote book titled "Life Without Nonsense Doesn't Make Sense". It tons of his own original quotes, and has over 35 illustrations drawn by yours truly.

If you're interested, you can check out how I make picture quotes to promote on social media!

Thank you for reading and I hope to see you around real soon! :)
