If you’ve ever tried to design your own fabric for Spoonflower in Illustrator, it can be a bit annoying getting it all to match up perfectly. I usually have to go back and shuffle things about slightly. So when I found this online class starting TODAY (it’s a bit like Craftsy, you can watch the videos at your own pace) I signed up!
It gives you a tutorial on Illustrator and its tools in general which I will find useful – it’s my least favourite Adobe Creative Suite software because I don’t know a whole lot about it. Then it will go through importing sketches (with and without a scanner) and finally onto the repeats. Flicking through there are seven chapters and a total of 16 video lessons. The theme we will be working on is Picnics so that we can submit for the contest on Spoonflower closing on July 2nd.
I can’t endorse it just yet as I’ve yet to actually start the class, but it sounds pretty good!
If it’s you’re first time using Skillshare (it’s mine too) you get $10 off so the class is $20 or £13.24-ish. That’s less than £1 per lesson. Click here to find out more or to register.
