About This Class

db165d58

Everyone is trying to find their style--even well-established creatives as we’re constantly pushing forward. Style is the happy place between those things “you always do” and places you’re pushing towards. I want to show you a way of working that calls upon your familiar tendencies while challenging you to explore more.

Amarilys Henderson, a watercolor illustrator, created this class as her own work seemed to be hitting a ceiling that was waiting to be broken. Through this process of combining play with the design principles, she found herself swimming in a unchartered waters that felt wonderfully familiar.

While my professional work in illustration is driven by t...
