About This Class

This class shows a fast and easy method for creating an ugly sweater pattern in Photoshop. By creating a couple differently sized patterns, and applying a few filters, you can generate an easy to update file. As with all smart effects, you can swap out the artwork at any point. You can even use a photo!

There is no need to be a designer or illustrator as I will supply you with a few files and point you in the direction of where you can find more if you would like.

This class is aimed for beginners and intermediate users.

See you in class!

Oh boy, these things are always awkward. Should I talk about myself in the third person like an accomplished wordsmith who compliments my every trait? Or should I just keep it real? Do people still say keep it real? Oh uh, I think I already fucked this thing all up. Great, now I even swore. Good thing no one reads these things. Wait, what?

I think you already know this by now, but I am a Graphic Designer and Illustrator. I graduated from a 3-year design college with honours in 2008. So I've been a full time designer since then. See what I did there? I didn't say I've been designing for 'X' amount of years, that way I never have to update this thing. Genius! 

I've been working full time since the day I graduated in a print, design, and sign shop in beautiful Bracebridge, Ontario. It's tagline is "In the Heart of Muskoka". Muskoka was actually rated the number 1 place in the world for a summer vacation by National Geographic. Or something like that. No one said I'd need to fact check in my own bio!

I actually live in Barrie which is about an hour North of Toronto. Bracebridge is about an hour North of Barrie. What is this, a geography lesson? Moving on...

The beauty of being the only designer in a small print shop is it doesn't satisfy my need for creativity. That may sound like a negative, but it forces me to go home with a hunger to create. For this reason I freelance, illustrate, and teach on the side! So you could say I'm fairly busy. At least when I'm not napping. I should probably delete that last sentence. But I've got to wrap this thing up and get back to the grind. So there's no time to delete!

So that's basically that. If you want to get a-hold of me I'm on basically every social media thingamajig @JonBrommet. You can also check out my website at the link below.

Congrats if you made it to the end of this train wreck! Also, see a doctor. You probably have one of those obsessive compulsive disorders where you need to finish things. Like reading a terrible bio.

Seriously though, check out my classes. You'll love them like your mother. Also, I promise not to try and be funny, I just keep it real! Seriously though, do people still say that?
