About This Class

In this class, you'll learn how to use Procreate on the iPad Pro with ease. By the time class is over, creating digital illustrations will feel intuitive and natural as drawing with pencil and paper. Class covers all the hidden tools and gestures you need to make creating digital illustrations easy and fun. Plus you'll learn how to make and share a cool time lapse video of your art!


As a full-time illustrator, Procreate has changed the way I work. It's my favorite tool for creating art. I can draw anywhere: from my own couch to an airplane. I can undo a mistake with a simple double tap and I have all the colors I could want, with just the tap of a button (and without the hassle of cleaning up all my paints).

You can find art I've created in Procreate on greeting cards in your favorite grocery stores, in popular home decor stores, magazines, and if you have babies, they might be wearing art I drew in Procreate. Want to see what I'm working on now? Follow me on instagram
