About This Class


In this class we will create a colorful digital pattern using your ink doodles and sketches.

With each video tutorial we will cover the steps of the print design process, including:

  • Coming up with an idea.
  • Sketching out the motifs.
  • Inking your drawings.
  • Digitizing your ink art.
  • Transforming your scanned art into a digital pattern. 

I will be showing you my work process, so by the end of the class you will have all the tools to create your own original patterns.
