Thanks for this class! Lots of useful shortcuts and tips.
Brad has made Illustration more approachable to a novice/intermediate user. I was stubborn for too long to use mainly traditional medium. This course made me see the possibilities of combining both traditional and digital tools.

Brad Woodard

Designer + Illustrator

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.

Now, my wife and I run our own design and illustration studio full-time, named Brave the Woods. We also sell art prints, tees, children's books and more at our shop, Brave Outpost
