Design memorable characters to bring your illustrations to life! As a bonus, by joining this live session, you’ll be helping ensure every kid in the US has access to healthy food—more details below.
Skillshare Premium Members are invited to join us on Friday, October 23rd at 3:00 PM ET for a live online Zoom session with Mimi Chao all about how she designs and develops characters in her illustrations. This class is in celebration of the launch of Procreate 5X last month, so Mimi will be drawing in the program and sharing some of her favorite features. The session will run for approximately 60 minutes. Click the “Remind Me” button above to register!
To help us celebrate, our friends at Procreate developed a Skillshare exclusive brush pack (for use with Pencil Filters) that will be available to participants of this session. Make sure to register and join us live to get access to this free pack!
Not only are you invited to create and connect with us, you’ll also be giving back to a worthy cause. We’re proud to share that for every one who joins a live session during the month of October, Skillshare will be donating $10 to No Kid Hungry, up to a max donation of $10,000. This organization is working to ensure that every child in the United States has access to healthy food, and just $10 can help them connect a child in need with a whopping 100 meals, so make sure to join us live so you can make a serious difference in a kid’s life.
Mimi Chao designs characters, makes picture books, and helps create story-based products. Her Los Angeles-based story & illustration studio, Mimochai, combines a modern approach with the playful style of classics like The Little Prince, Moomins, and Calvin & Hobbes. In addition to her creative work, an important aspect of Mimi’s story was her switch from corporate law to the creative world. Finding a meaningful purpose for your life's work is a topic she cares a lot about. She’s passed along that passion and creative approach to over 50,000 students on Skillshare, through her classes on digital painting, illustrated journaling, and creative freelancing.
This live session will include:
Throughout the session, you’ll be encouraged to work alongside Mimi and ask questions. Feel free to add questions in advance of the event (discussion forum below) or bring them live to the Zoom session. We look forward to seeing you soon!
