About This Class

Only real, physical media gives us those imperfections we love so much — bleeding ink, wobbly lines, grainy textures, etc. — but how to bring them into our digital illustrations? If you've ever wanted to have a more hand-crafted, personal illustration style, this class will be perfect for you. Illustrator Tom Froese is known for his whimsical, energetic illustrations that combine digital techniqiues with physical textures, linework and hand lettering. Join him as he shows you, step by step, how to illustrate a postcard featuring your favourite tools of the trade — those things you love to use every day to get your job or hobby done. Along the way, you’ll pick up some very handy skills in sampling physical marks and textures digitally using a scanner and Photoshop, and of course, have an insider’s look at his personal process.
