"This class is a game-changer if you are proficient in drawing in Illustrator but lack the know-how to work with the brushes. It was an eye-opener how useful these can be in pattern-design." Marijke S.
This first class is geared towards people starting out with vector-based design who want to learn about Adobe Illustrator software and develop their vector style.
