what is this all about?!

So, tell me

One of the top questions I get from aspiring illustrators and designers is "how do I figure out my signature style?" or "how do I know if my signature style is good?" or "how do I stick out in the crowd?" What makes your work YOU can sometimes be a little bit tricky to figure out and define. Also, developing your "signature style" on your own organically can take years, it certainly did for me. I tried all medias under the sun until one day something clicked because I took the time to sort through my intentions and direction for my artwork. This workshop is going to present you with assignments and exercises to practise to speed up this discovery and development phase. I can't guarantee that you'll walk away after 4 weeks with a solidly fleshed out "signature style" but you will definitely be heading in the right direction!

This is what's included:

Class runs from June 1st - June 26th, 2020

    A private Facebook group to share your assignments to gain valuable real time feedback from me and the rest of the group.

  • Week 1: I will share my personal story of style development, discuss what signature styles are and how to stand out in the crowd. We will also dig deep into color, subject matter and technique.

  • Week 2: We will look to inspiration from other artists, designers, photographers etc. to understand what we are naturally drawn and apposed to.

  • Week 3: We will dissect what we've learnt the past 2 weeks and define the parameters of our signature style.

  • Week 4: We will put all that we have learnt the past 3 weeks together to create a finished illustration or pattern. We will also discuss how to move forward.
