What You'll Make
For this class you will be creating a digital illustration that will be your visual interpretation of an adjective. You will get the choice of one of two adjectives:"quiet" or "loud". You will accomplish this through the use of pattern, texture, and color. Your illustration can be as abstract or literal as you choose. The class will start with you determining how you would like to visualize the word. Based on your ideas and brainstorming, you will then select your strongest directions. This is a great time for you to get feedback from your peers to see if you are communicating the way you would like.

Lots of helpful tips on design concept, colour and texture
This class is very helpful and offers many quick tips for navigating Illustrator. The instructor sounds very knowledgable and does a good job of pacing his direction and instructions.
I am a graphic designer and illustrator raised in the Great Northwest, now living in Austin, Texas with my wife and little boy. After graduating with a BFA in graphic design, I started my career as an information designer and illustrator at Column Five Media. The digital illustration courses I took in college paid off, as I found that more and more clients were requesting illustration work in their designs. Merging both skills together I have been able attract all types of work, including my work in advertising at Arnold Worldwide.
