About This Class

Creating a hand-crafted poster/print can be very rewarding, but definitely a challenge. This class is designed to take this process step-by-step, walking through my personal habits when I'm creating a larger piece. We'll work through the early stages of sketching and planning all the way through inking and finishing up. 

(I used an instrumental version of "Light Speed" by Grieves in my video. He's awesome and you should check him out.)

This was very straight forward and to the point. There was enough information presented but did not take me an entire afternoon to get through it. Thanks for a great class.
I already knew Joshua Phillips from Instagram and besides this class i recommand to check his profil there. Just watch his course and it's super understandable and comprehensibly in my opinion.
Really enjoyed seeing your process. I'll look for your other classes, too! I'll try to post when I finish my assignment. Thank you! Joy Ps...I loved your Flight of the Concords shirt, too!
