Happy New Year!
I'm proud to announce that my class, Inky Illustrations, is featured in Skillshare's own workshop, Turn Physical Art into Digital Textures: A 30-Day Experience for Graphic Designers.
The workshop kicks off on January 5th! This is a fun way to improve your Illustrator skills, as you’ll be learning along side hundreds of other students in real-time. If you've taken my Inky Illustrations: Combining Analogue and Digital Media class but haven't shared your project, then now is your chance! There are some great prizes being offered for students that submit projects during the workshop. You’ll get feedback from the community and Skillshare will send you reminder emails to keep you on track.
My brand new Skillshare class just went live. If you've ever wanted a more hand crafted and personal feeling to your illustrations, this class will be perfect for you. It's also a great way to get an insider's look at my process. For those who are not on Skillshare, you may enrol using this link and gain free premium access!
Here's a description of the class from the site:
Only real, physical media gives us those imperfections we love so much — bleeding ink, wobbly lines, grainy textures — but how to bring them into our digital illustrations? If you've ever wanted to have a more hand-crafted, personal illustration style, this class will be perfect for you. Illustrator Tom Froese is known for his whimsical, energetic illustrations that combine digital techniqiues with physical textures, linework and hand lettering. Join him as he shows you how to illustrate a postcard featuring your favourite tools of the trade — those things you love to use every day to get your job or hobby done.
Tom will walk you through the entire process, from brainstorming to final artwork. Along the way, you’ll pick up some very handy skills in sampling physical marks and textures digitally using a scanner and Photoshop, and of course, have an insider’s look at his personal process. By the end of this class, you'll have a postcard, which you illustrated, to promote your business or hobby.
