I really believe in the contents of this course and I think you’ll get so much out of it but if for whatever reason you find the course isn’t for you, I’m offering a 7 day money-back guarantee.

The course starts as soon as you sign up! Once you join you will receive access to the membership area and a link for access to the closed Facebook group…no waiting or start dates to worry about. You will receive emails each week to keep you on track with the modules.
Absolutely! The course is designed to be self-paced so you can work as quickly or slowly as you like. You can take breaks and easily pick up at any time and there are no renewals or subscription fees to worry about.
You’ll have lifetime access to the course and the community. This also entitles you to lifetime access to any and all updates and any bonuses that are added to the program at no additional cost for the lifetime of the course.
As long as you are able to put pen to paper, you can succeed in the course. It’s all about developing your own personal style. For some that will be intricate and lifelike motifs while for others that could be abstract and textural motifs. You will be given lots of different techniques to help develop your design skills and flourish as a designer.
The course contains tutorials in Illustrator CC and Photoshop CC so you will need access to one or both of the programs (depending on your preference). You can use earlier versions of the programs too however all tutorials are demonstrated in Adobe CC.
It’s up to you whether you want to want to work in both programs or just one. I do recommend taking the time to learn both in the long run.
You’ll also need a computer of course:) and any drawing or mark making materials that you are interested in exploring.
