Studio Calico // Doodle 2 Digital

There is a new class over at Studio Calico this month and it's about a topic I'm really excited about since it is all about turning illustrations into digital designs. I do some of this when working on digital designs for my shoppe but am definitely interested to learn more tips and techniques from an industry professional! Here's the description for Doodle 2 Digital:

Ever wondered who’s behind the fancy lettering and quirky illustrations you see on Studio Calico products? Graphic designer Matthew Wilson takes you behind the scenes to show how he creates those trendy designs. He’ll cover his favorite tools and share techniques for creating your own hand-lettered art and illustrations. You’ll even learn how to go digital with your work so you can make original art prints, patterned papers, cards, and more!

Included in the class is:

  • A video introduction to the class and the tools you'll be using
  • 6 in-depth instructional videos from Matthew covering class material
  • Tips & tricks on the tools, techniques and practice involved in the class
  • Access to a class message board and gallery, where you can share and learn with your teacher and fellow students
  • Weekly challenges to inspire you to use what you've learned
  • Live chat with your teacher and fellow students

Hope to see you in the classroom!

PS. If you missed the announcement last month, I also have a new-ish class over at BPC all about pocket pages called Pocket Prompts 13. You can start a free trial to the site if you're not sure about committing to the monthly membership so that you can check out the class as well all the other great ones on the site :)
