About This Class


"Shorty-shorts" is a series of design classes created around the idea of learning content in fifteen minutes or less.

In part one of this three part series, I'll take you through the steps of designing your cartoon character from ideation to final sketch. I break down the most essential concepts in creating a likable and believable cartoon character for your cartoon, animation, or comic project. The great thing about part one of this course is that it is FREE to enroll! All you need is your creativity and something to draw with.

I look forward to seeing you there!

I love creating illustrations and have always loved the Arts since I could hold a crayon. Now I am on a journey to share my art with a world...

one crayon at a time.
