About This Class

Ever wanted to open a shop on Etsy or start selling your own designs at fairs? In this class I'll be teaching you how to tidy up an illustration ready for printing on your own products, specifically greetings cards.

I also go into some business bits and some ideas on how to get you started!

Hello from Uchoa, Sp Brazil

I found Sophia's style of talking a little irritating and immature. That's my personal opinion and others might find her noises and mannerisms endearing. That said it was an interesting class and I'm glad I watched it. I do think though that there are better photoshop tools for doing some of the touching up and cutting out but the one's she uses obviously work for her. I thought there would be more on printing and creating your artwork in the right size but it was still useful to watch. I would recommend Cat Coquillette's class on Society6 to give you a better idea what to do with your artwork once you've created it.
