When I started illustrating my contemporary tribal art print collection, it became quite clear really fast that I’d need to create shortcuts for the laborious repeating pattern sections of the design.

My design didn’t call for complicated patterns, so I decided to create faux patterns.

Faux patterns are designs created to look like repeating surface pattern designs without the complicated multi-steps of surface pattern designs.

This class teaches you how to create quick + easy faux patterns you can use in your illustrations.

In very little time you will have a library of dozens, even hundred of faux patterns.
