    I kind of hate to say it but I am a little more interested in how all the dots were counted than I am in the drawing itself. But I mean, I am VERY interested in how the dots were counted…

    😀 one of my most favorite types of art. I did several pictures like this. It used to be called Pointillism. Don’t know what it’s being called now, but watching this makes me want to do another. It’s a lot of fun!

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!

You can watch a preview of Jessica Hische’s class below!
